I totally agree. I had always been told that a great uncle, Stewart Jackson
Smith, was named for Gen. J. E. B. Stewart and Gen. Stonewall Jackson. His
dad had been an officer in CSA. Made sense. One day I was talking to a
genealogist and mentioned this. He replied: No , he wasn't . He was named for
his great grandfather - Stewart Jackson. Found a whole new line of relatives.
