I am following this thread, without so far  having anything meaningfull to add but John Stewart's (b 1803 Kilarrow) parents are wrong, It is wife Mary McCUAIG b 10 Dec 1816 who had parents Donald McCUAIG and Betty (Betsy) BROWN.

John Stewart was 47 and wife Mary McCUAIG 34 on the 1851 Census at Port Ellen so he should be born abt or before 1803/4. Their daughter Mary born Barrhead in 1851 died at Bowmore 10 Jan 1869.

Also, there was a Robert Steward 40 also a Tinsmith at Shore St., Bowmore in 1841 with wife Susanna both born Ireland, makes me wonder if John Stewart was related.
