They did not have children together.Dr. Stewart died after 25 Mar 1893. Nobody has been able to find where he is buried.It was said that when he died he wanted to be buried in an unmarked grave.He didn't want anybody from Perrysville to dig him up to take him back there for burial and possibly transport some epidemic in the process. We don't have documentation of that statement, though.We descend through Dr. Stewart's oldest son (his second oldest child) Jason Leroy Stewart.
