TSP (Innermeath) describes the following Alexander as "ancestor of the Steuarts of Grandtully" but does not indicate whether or not he obtained Grandtully himself. However, some web sites and contributors suggest that his father had obtained Grandtully so this Alexander was probably 2nd of Grandtully. Noting that a web site and a contributor both indicate that his son Thomas died in 1453 whilst the book on the Stewarts of Forthergill, which starts with a Thomas who is identified as 3rd of Grandtully, was grandfather of John who died in 1488, this would appear to make the following feasible (dates-wise) ...
Alexander Stewart of Grandtully
m. Margaret Hay (sister of John Hay of Tullibodie)
1. Thomas Stewart (3rd) of Grandtully (d 1453)
  m. Maud Stewart (dau of John Stewart, 1st of Forthergill)
  A. Alexander Stewart (4th) of Grandtully
  The book on the Stewarts of Forthergill identifies Alexander's wife as "Matilda, sister of Lord Evandale" (ie. Avandale). However, a Matilda Stewart of that description appears to have been investigated in some depth with no mention of her being married to this Alexander.
  m. Matilda Stewart
  i. John Stewart (5th) of Grandtully (d 1488)
The book on the Stewarts of Forthergill shows a generation gap before continuing with Thomas, 8th of Grandtully. However, it also identifies Thomas's wife as his cousin so the following should be about right (although one contributor suggests the eleder brother was Thomas and the younger, who married Agnes Murray and was ancestor of the later lairds, was Alexander) ...
