The Unsolved Mystery of Peter Stewart Ney

Record #:
Who was Peter Stewart Ney? Was he Marshal Michel Ney, one of Napoleon's greatest generals, who was executed in 1815, after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo? Or did he escape and become a teacher in 19th-century Rowan County? His tombstone in a Rowan County cemetery states that he was a native of France and a soldier under Napoleon Bonaparte. The mystery continues.
