Daniel Stewart (December 20, 1761 – May 27, 1829) was an American politician and brigadier general in the Georgia Militia. He joined the militia in 1776 and served during the American Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.
He was born in Liberty County, Georgia, to military officer John Stewart, Jr. (died September 6, 1776) and Susannah Bacon (died 1766). Daniel's paternal grandparents, John Stewart, Sr. (died c. 1763) and Jerusha (maiden name unknown; died 1762), were English immigrants who settled in Dorchester, South Carolina. Daniel's siblings who died young were Ann (died 1759), Mary (died 1766), and John III (died 1767). He had two elder sisters who survived, Sarah (born 1750) and Susannah (born 1758). Daniel also had a younger half-sister, Elizabeth (born 1774), from John Jr.'s second marriage to Sarah Nickols.
Stewart served as a state representative from 1785 to 1787, sheriff of Liberty County, Georgia, from 1795 to 1797, and state senator for three terms between 1802 and 1811.

Her brother Thomas Hepworth Oswald (1760 – November 26, 1790) was the patrilineal great-great-grandfather of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald (1939–1963). She bore Daniel six children:
- Mary Stewart (1788–?)
