1865. His father was in the cotton manufacturing business and the family came to Fall River when he was quite young.
He attended the public schools of Fall River and the High School at Bristol, R. I. After leaving school he was
employed for nearly a year as a traveling salesman for a Portland (Me.) firm. He then engaged in various mercantile
pursuits and in the mean time learned the carpenter's trade under George W. Reynolds, for whom he worked four years.
At the end of this time he began journeyman work, which he continued until 1888, and then went into the contracting
business. In 1896 Mr. Stewart established his present business at 870 South Main street, manufacturing doors, sash,
blinds and builders' supplies in general. Mr. Stewart resides in Tiverton. In 1894 he served as councilman in that
town, having been elected on the Republican ticket. He was married in 1886 to Catherine, daughter of Thomas Eagan
