(Jesse/Duncan); .b-Oct. 10,1807, in Abbyville, District, South Carolina. d- May 30,1888, in Senoraville, Georgia, Gordan County; He married, ANNA ELIZABETH PATTERSON, abt-1826; Anna died, Aug. 25,1869,and is buried in Wesley Cemetary, Gordan County, Georgia.2/.. He married, FRANCES "FANNIE", MATTHEWS STEWART, Jan.19,1870. Francis died, Nov.28,1892, and is buried in Wesley Chapel Cemetary, in Gordan County, Georgia.( Obediah and Francis had no known children together); Obediah and Elizabeth had twelve children;

A story passed on through the ages, came to me from Laurie Mashburn, via, Herman Johnson Jr.(Thank you Laurie and Herman);" FRANCES "FANNIE" MATTHEWS, was previously married to JOHN HENRY STEWART,abt-1838, in N. Carolina; John Henry Stewart, born-abt-1818 in N.C, died on May 14,1864, after The Battle of Resaca; He was coming home after the battle, and killed by a snipers bullet; Although he is not listed on any CSA Roster, he joined his neighbors when the Union troups were marching into Gordan County, Georgia; He was buried in an unmarked grave at the Resaca Confederate Cemetary; By the time his family got a wagon and horses together to drive the distance to get John Stewarts body, soldiers had already buried him; Years of resentment and division developed between the Campbell and Stewart families. As the story is told, John Henry Stewart, left a moderate sum land to his wife, Frances; When Frances and Obediah Campbell married, it seems that Obediah sold off most of the Stewart land, which formed a resentful breach between the two families; When Frances died, her children by John Stewart would not allow her to be buried with the Campbell name. She is buried as Frances Matthews Stewart. Court documents report that tthe Stewart's had 97 acres in Gordan County Georgia at the time.Which does not seem to be alot of land,but evidently the children of John Henry Stewart wanted to inherit it.John Henry Stewart and Frances Matthews had seven children;"
