The Stewart County Historical Commission invites anyone who fails to get a "hit" on their query to send it directly to the Commission where we may be able to dig out an answer. We have references here at the Bedingfield Inn Museum which aren't readily available elsewhere and spend half our time doing "assists" for researchers like you. There is no charge unless the response involves a LOT of copying (then we just ask for a donation to cover expenses)- a few pages is no big deal. We also offer the History of Stewart County Volume I for sale (Vol II is out of print - we just have one copy for on-site research). For a list of publications, call, write, or email:

Jim Boling BS, MA
Curator and Inn Manager
(229) 838-6419
FAX (229) 887-2425
