Although a considerable amount of my own original research has gone into this project, I also must acknowledge the help, hints, clues and encouragement that I have received from others. Without their influence and help, this project would never have been brought to its present state.
Eva (Stewart) Garn, my grandmother, and her siblings and other Stewart and Hillard relatives
I would also like to thank the countless others whose hints I may have forgotten which nevertheless may have lead to some major find. Please forgive my oversight if I failed to recall your contribution.
