Most of us want to know who our ancestors are and from whence they came. For some, this means a family history mystery that requires gathering enough clues to put the puzzle pieces together accurately. This is especially true for those who feel a gnawing skepticism about speculations some have made.

Dr. John Stewart ‘s First Record in America at Oyster Bay, 1686, Finds Him with Isaiah Harrison Sr.’s Future In-laws from the Wright and Townsend Families

Just as Isaiah1 Harrison, Sr. was termed “enigmatic” in Chapter One, Dr. John1 Stewart’s origins are also cloaked in mystery.
