I was happy to see your message for evidently you are researching for the exact same Susannah Musselman that I am. I am also a direct descendant of John Gilpin Stewart. I descended through his son Jacob, and his son, John N.
Stewart who moved out to Oregon in the 1910's.

I have researched enough to believe that Peter Musselman who resided in the Lower Antietam Hundred of southern WA Co. MD might have been Susannah's father. I have yet to find a connection, though, but he is listed on the 1800 census and has other children appearing to be teen-agers.
The information that I have (from Ancestry) is that Peter migrated to MD in 1796 having been born in Germany. Possibly the other Musselman marriages in/near Hagerstown in the early 1800's are Susannah's siblings. No proof, though. Another 1-2 people I have encountered believe the same thing, though. Peter sold in 1803, I think, and his wife is listed as "Frenzy" on the deed. Which may well be
misinterpreted from Francey or Francis. I have seen several posts on the internet with a Peter and a Francis
Musselman listed.

The German birth would account for the lack of records on him.

I would appreciate your comments on this. Nancy in Spokane
