Stewart born Dec. 1887, Tom & Sarah could not have been married and if Tom did not divorce Susan left in Pike Co., KY., then Tom's other marriages were not legal.

Cosby listed as born Nov. 1897 in June 1900 census, her born before the marriage of parents. Listed born Feb. 15, 1900 on her birth certificate. Cosby lied about her birth her entire life as did John R. for her to hide the fact that she was born out of wedlock, but John R. claimed she was his full sister and did not claim William his older brother as full brother (he was William Hall child of Mary and John Hall out of wedlock).

John Riley Stewart first married Virgie Baisden, daughter of Thomas & Emma Baisden of Mingo Co. , West VA. They divorced and John R., later remarried, with no children from 2nd marriage.
