Born August 27, 1871 on a farm in Mallory township, Mr. Stewart was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Stewart.
He lived on the home farm for eighty years of his life until selling it to his son, Sam about five years ago, after which he lived for two years in a small home on the farm. For the past three years he had been in poor health and most of the time had lived in nursing homes.

Mr. Stewart is survived by two sons, Sam who lives on the Stewart homestead in Mallory Township, and Ralph who lives near Fayette, Ia. Also surviving are eight grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.
