Cane Creek MM
1768, 1, 14. John Doan, son of Joseph, Orange Co, married Elizabeth Stuart

Elizabeth had twelve children.

Cane Creek MM is considered the first Quaker meeting in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. Cane Creek MM was founded in 1751, in what was then Orange County, and in the area that would become known as Snow Camp. In 1849, Alamance was created from the west half of what was by then left of Orange Co and Snow Camp fell with the bounds of Alamance.

Elizabeth is thought to be buried in the Cane Creek MM cemetery - graves were seldom marked.

Elizabeth PIKE and Alexander STUART were married on 17 May 1759 in Cane Creek, Orange County, North Carolina. Alexander STUART was born in 1737 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. He died in 1767 at the age of 30 in Orange County, North Carolina.

Stewart Clan Tome C Sept. 1934 , pg. 75 - "Stuarts of Cane Creek, North Carolina" - by Anna R. Stewart, Tempe, Ariz.
Alexander (3) Stuart (Robert, (2), Alexander, (1), born about 1736 in Chester county, Pa., went with his parents to Berks county about 1746.

About 1756 his father's family moved from Berks co. to Fredrick co., Va., and Alexander presumably went with them. Mar. 3, 1758, he presented a certificate at the Quaker monthly meeting at Cane Creek, Orange county, N.C., (now Alamance co., N.C.) on the same day that his father, Robert Stuart, presented a certificate.

* He married at the Cane Creek meeting May 17, 1759 Elizabeth Pike, born Jan. 19, 1739, in Frederick co., Va., daughter of John and Abigail Pike. Alexander died in 1767. They had four children, Robert, Abigail, John and unborn son Henry Stewart.

The widow Elizabeth married Jan. 14, 1768, John Doane. (2) She was his third wife and had seven children by him. John Doane died Mar. 6, 1811, and Elizabeth died Mar. 31, 1816, in the Cane Creek community.

In the year 1927, the Cane Creek Friends erected a monument to commemorate these pioneering days, and to honor one Alexander Stuart, one of the first immigrants to arrive here. The monument was placed in the Cane Creek church cemetery.
The monument says:
Alexander Stuart

Elizabeth PIKE and Alexander STUART had the following children:



Robert STUART was born in 1761. He died on 21 July 1844 at the age of 83.

From post to Quaker-Roots-L Archives, 7 May 2009:

More information is available about Ann Hornaday, who was probably John
and Christian Hornaday's eighth child and third daughter. One of her
descendants, Anna R. Stewart of Mesa, Arizona, left a considerable
correspondence with R. H. Hutchison, the historian of Orange County, and
others interested in the Hornaday genealogy. This correspondence contains
the only reference we have to John Hornaday the elder as having been known
to his grandchildren. Writing in 1933, Miss Stewart said, "Carrie Abbey,
daughter of Ivy Stewart, youngest son of Ann Hornaday Stewart says her
great-grandfather was the first Hornaday and that would be Ann's father.
Now I make a guess his name was John because in the Stewart family,
Alexander, Ann's son named their oldest child John Clark and it was said his
two grandfathers were John" (6)

We are fortunate to have an existing Bible record for Ann, which its
present owner, Mrs. Martha Beel, generously copied for us. From it we know
that she was born December 12, 1766, married Robert Stuart on Saturday,
January 11, 1783, and died August 1, 1839, at the age of seventy-three (7)

Anna Stewart's correspondence shows that the Stuarts were a Quaker family,
which had come to Chester County, Pennsylvania, and on through Virginia to
Cane Creek, North Carolina, where they were living in 1758, Alexander Stuart
married Elizabeth Pike. Their son Robert, was born in Cane Creek on
December 23, 1760. Thus he was twenty-three and Ann was seventeen when they
were married.

The young couple remained in Cane Creek Settlement until the turn of the
century at least. They are said to have moved to Ohio about 1802 "or a
little later." It is quite possible that Robert and Ann (Hornaday) Stuart
were a part of the Hornaday group which came out in 1807 or 1808 to settle
in Miami Valley in Ohio. The Stuarts settled in the same region, in Warren
County (where we have already noted the the presence of Hornadays), Warren
County is perhaps 25 miles south and east of the Gratis-Camden-West Elkton
area of Preble County where Nathan Hornaday and his family settled. It lies
north of Butler County where the two John Hornadays established their first
farms. Anna Stuart's letters indicate that the Stewarts knew their Hornaday
cousins in Ohio, but that her father (an old man in the 1930's) had
forgotten the precise relationships involved (8).

In any case, Ann and her husband appear to have established themselves
near Oregonia, Ohio. This small settlement is close to Lebanon, the county
seat of Warren County, where local tradition proudly preserves the memory of
Charles Dickens's visit to the Golden Lamb Tavern. The Golden Lamb, the
oldest hotel in Ohio, is well worth a visit today, as it is one of the few
buildings that remain from the early nineteenth century in southwest Ohio.
We like to think that Ann (Hornaday) Stuart perhaps came over from Oregonia
now and then with her husband, and might even have stopped at the Golden

Robert Stuart outlived his wife. He died on July 21, 1844, five years
after Ann. He was eighty-three years old.
