      Portrait of the Stewart / Day family

      Richard Stewart Alta and Annie Day.tif (357776 bytes)

      Richard Stewart, his wife Annie Day, and their
      daughter Alta Day in Calvin Township, Michigan.

      Annie was the daughter of Isaiah Day and Martha Hawkes, the granddaughter
      of Peter Day and Edith Archer, and the great-granddaughter of
      Solomon Day and Julia Artis of Southampton County, Virginia.

      The Day family of Southampton County most likely descended from
      Mary Day, a White indentured servant woman of Northumberland
      County, Virginia, who had a child by a free African American man in 1692.

      Martha Hawkes was the daughter of Samuel Hawkes, a former slave.
