HISTORY OF KENTUCKY, by Lewis Collins, and J.A. & U.P. James, published

[Fayette county].

The REV. ROBERT STUART came to Kentucky in 1798. In December of the
same year, he was appointed Professor of Languages in Transylvania
University, but resigned in the year following. During the year 1803,
he preached to the church of Salem; and in 1804, took charge of Walnut
Hill church, about six miles east of Lexington, which he continued to
retain for nearly forty years. He has performed much laborious services
in the church - is a man of rare prudence and discretion - and is
esteemed by all who know him, as "an Israelite indeed, in whom there is
no guile." This venerable father still lives, in the 75th year of his
age, while most of his early companions in the ministry in Kentucky,
have gone to their rest. [Presbyterian].
