William Stewart and his wife Elizabeth Givens Stewart originally settled Stewardstown in 1771. It lies in the region of Monongalia County, West Virginia known as The Forks of Cheat, named because that is the area where the Cheat empties (forks) into the Monongahela River.
It is nestled close to the Cheat River off US-119 right on a bend in the river.
There in 1775, Rev John Corbly organized the Forks-of-the-Cheat Baptist Church, the oldest continuously operating church in West Virginia.
