Notes


"Family 1:unknown. Children: Zoe Theodora
He ruled as emporer jointly with his brother, Basil II, from 976 to 1025, when Basil died. He then ruled alone until his own death in 1028. Administrative power was concentrated mainly in Basil's hands, under whom the Empire rose to its highest power and glory.


Near the end of the tenth century, the position of the Emporers and their dynasty appeared critical. The rebel, Bardas Phocas, had won almost all the large landowners of Asia Minor to his side and was approaching the gates of Constantinople. At the same time, the northern provinces of the Empire were in danger of being invaded by the victorious Bulgarians. Basil appealed to Vladimir, Grand Duke of Kiev for help. The alliance was formed and Vladimir's army was able to help defeat the army of Bardas Phocas, who was killed. Two provisions of this treaty are worthy of note.


First, the Rus were to convert to Christianity, which they did.
Secondly, The Emporers were to give their sister, Ann to Vladmir in marriage. They attempted to renig on this promise, but finally complied after Vladmir laid siege to the important Crimean city of Cherson.


The year 1018 is recognized as the end of the short lived kingdom of Bulgaria, which seriously threatened the very existence of the Empire and the beginning of it's status as a Byzantine province. The fovorable status quo with the Eastern Arabs was maintained.
Basil and his brother-in-law, German Emporer Otto II, had no success against the Sicilian Arabs who were plundering Italy almost at will. Basil was making plans for an extensive campaign to reconquer Sicily when he died.


This period of time also featured constant contention between the Empire and the Seljuk Turks for control of Armenia. It was during this reign that the Normans made their first appearance in Italy. They were soundly defeated by the Byzantine army at Cannae. This greatly improved the situaton in Italy for the Empire."

Notes


"John Stewart gave a power of attorney to his friend John Penn in Va. in 1790, stating they were about to move to Georgia. Additional preparations involved two documents in the county records, recorded in the "Deeds of Amherst Co, Va., 1761-1807," by Bailey Fulton Davis (The first on page 262, the second on page 251):
October 4, 1790: John Stewart, wife Mourning Burford - sold land - moving to Georgia. Witnessed by William Stewart.
January 7, 1791: John Stewart to sisters; Betsy, Nanny,and Sally, and to brother David Stewart "Whole estate of my father" at death to go to above grantees. Witnessed by Charles and Thomas Stewart."


"General John Stewart (1760 - 1829) was born in Amherst County, Virginia in 1760. He served as a Captain in the Amherst Co., Virginia Militia during the American Revolution. He was at the Battle of Yorktown and saw General George Washington receive the surrender sword of General Cornwallis.
He married Mourning Floyd, the daughter of Col. John Floyd, on April 13, 1784 in Amherst Co., VA. In 1786 their first son, Floyd Stewart, was born. Over the next eighteen years they had six more children, Emeline, Matilda, Sarah, Permelia, John Barrien and Lorenzo Dow.


..John Stewart, "about to remove to Georgia" signed a power of attorney in Amherst Co., VA on January 4, 1791. John, his wife Mourning, their children and John's widow mother, Ann Haw Stewart settled in Oglethorpe County, Georgia and established Cherry Hill Plantation. The Stewart's home at Cherry Hill burned in about 1812. All the family portraits and the family bible were destroyed in the fire.


On December 11, 1815 the Stewart's daughter Sarah married Major John Martin Stevens. General Stewart sold part of Cherry Hill Plantation to his son-in-law, John Stevens. John and Sarah built their own home, which they called Oak Hill. Oak Hill Plantation and the Stevens original plantation house remained in the Stevens family until 1995.


On July 14, 1796 the Georgia General Assembly appointed John Stewart Brigadier General of the third division of the Georgia Militia. He was the senior Brigadier General of the Georgia Militia in the War of 1812. He served until October 14, 1814 when he resigned due to ill health. His cousin, General John Floyd, replaced him.


His grandson, John Daniel Stewart, described General Stewart as "quite a large, fine, rosy-complected man and stood as fair as any man in the state or any other state". The wife of his grandson, Patrick M. Stevens, said General Stewart "was of great height and remarkable personal beauty. He was said to be the handsomest man in the Colonial Army. He was very fair, and had blue eyes and light hair."


General Stewart served as a trustee of the University of Georgia. He was an active member of the Methodist church. He died April 23, 1829 and was buried in the family burial ground at Cherry Hill Plantation, Oglethorpe Co., GA. After his death, his wife Mourning lived with their daughter Permelia until her death."


"LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF GENERAL JOHN STEWART, DEC'D.

"Letter: Addressed in General John Stewarts hand, and in the GA Dept of Archives and History:
"To his Excellency John Millage,
Lewisville,
by the Revend W Blackburn"
Cherry Hill Feby 23d 1806
Sir
This will be handed you by the Revend W Blackburn from the State of Tennessee a gentlman whom I recommend to your notice. Any friendship shown him will be as thankfully acknowledged as if it had bin done by myself. He is a man of piety and trying to promote the Kingdom of the Redeemer. He has been trying to civilise the Cherokee Nation of Indians and has flatering prospects of being succesful. Could you be of any advantage to him by giving letters to some of your acquaintances that might favor a plan of that kind it will be very pleasing to him. He has now two schools in the Nation and finds the burden too heavy for him to bear a lone. Should a plan of that kind be pleasing to you I f(l)atter myself that your advise to him in the business will be profitable.
from Sir your sincere friend & Verry
Humbl. Servt.
Jno Stewart

John Milledge was the Governor of Georgia, 1802-1806. A Revolutionary "patriot," he was a distinguished citizen of the state and after being its governor, was appointed to the US Senate in 1806, where he served until 1809. He retired to "distinguished leisure," and during that time was instrumental in the founding of the University of Georgia at Athens. The city of Milledgeville (and particularly Milledge Avenue), which became the capital from 1807-1867, was named in his honor. (see DAB, 1943)"
