Kathy, my Stewarts/Stuarts land boundaries changed in Buncombe, they were in Haywood, Henderson, Macon, Cherokee, county, Nc. In 1782 Daniel Carlin deeded to James and John Stewart Jr each 50 acres of land on New River, Montgomery County, Va. Daniel had land in Montgomery, Carroll, Grayson, Henry, Patrick V and Surry, NC. I have seen the name spelled CARLAN early on, of course census takers wrote the names as they heard them. Daniel is thought to have come to Va. abt. 1770 from Ireland, he did well in Va. and did it fast. He had a brother who also served in the Henry County, militia. Alot of Daniels family moved to TN. then later Illinois, Indiana. Some are found near Washington DC area, Alexandria Va. There is a web page on the Carlins of America, have you seen it? Do you know in waht cemetary and county your Carlands are buried in? Teresa
