Obituary from the Daily Patriot

Mr. Stewart has, for many years, occupied a place among the prominent gentlemen of our province. Since his large estates were purchased by the Government, his name has not figured so extensively in public documents as formerly; but on account of the high family to which he belonged, his means and his scholarly attainments, his decease leaves a blank in our community which cannot be easily filled. Burial: Sherwood Cemetery


Children from this marriage were:

DEATH - DAVID BUCHAN STEWART

St. Paul's Church Weekly Bulletin, Jan. 4, 1948.

In the recent Home Call of Mr. D. B. Stewart in his Ninety-first year, St. Paul's has lost one of her oldest and most devoted members.

The late Mr. Stewart was a life-long member of St. Paul's Church. His love of Christ's Church was evidenced by his regular attendance at the Services. His custom was to attend every Sunday Morning and Evening. Though several months before his death he suffered from ill-health, yet he endeavoured to attend his Church and was present the Sunday before God called him to higher service.

His love for his Church, and his devotion to it stands as a glowing example to all members of St. Paul's.

To his bereaved sons and all members of the family we extend our sincerest sympathy.

Burial: Section F, St. Peter's Cathedral Anglican Cemetery, St. Peter's Road.
