Wm. Stewart settled at what was called Middle Turkey Grove, in 1854. He had one son and twelve daughters, and the girls were all old enough to be called young ladies, except one. It is stated that there was not a young man in the county who would go there alone for the purpose of making love--each fellow was afraid he wouldn't have enough love to go around.
