About Archibald Dabney Stuart

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archibald_Stuart

Archibald Stuart (December 2, 1795 – September 20, 1855) was a nineteenth century politician and lawyer from Virginia. He was the first cousin of Alexander Hugh Holmes Stuart and the father of Confederate General James Ewell Brown "Jeb" Stuart, who was the seventh of eleven children.


Born in Lynchburg, Virginia to Anne Dabney Stuart and Judge Alexander Stuart, Stuart attended private schools and completed preparatory studies as a child. He became an officer in the War of 1812 and studied law afterward. After being admitted to the bar, Stuart commenced practice in Lynchburg. He became a member of the Virginia House of Delegates in 1830 and 1831 and a delegate to the Virginia Constitutional Conventions in 1829, 1830, 1850 and 1851. Stuart was elected a Democrat to the United States House of Representatives in 1836, serving from 1837 to 1839. After being unsuccessful for reelection, Stuart resumed practicing law. He served to the Virginia Senate, serving from 1852 to 1854. Stuart died suddenly at his home, "Laurel Hill" in Patrick County, Virginia, on September 20, 1855. He was interred in the Stuart family cemetery at Laurel Hill. In 1952 the Stuart family re-interred his remains in Saltville, Virginia, next to the grave of his wife, Elizabeth Letcher Pannill Stuart.
