WILLIAM STEWART, farmer; P. 0. Casstown; born in Pennsylvania April 3, 1822; is a son of James and Mary (Hayes)
Stewart, natives of Pennsylvania, the ancestry being of Irish descent; James and Mary located in Miami Co. in 1834;
about one year after arriving here, James died from that dreaded disease, cancer; the mother died in 1875; they
were parents of six children, of whom four are now living, viz., William, David Hayes and Eleaxar (now in Iowa)
and Jane (now Mrs. Maxwell); the children all being young when the father died, quite a responsibility came upon
the mother to keep together and raise her family, which work she nobly performed until they all arrived at majority.
In February, 1852, our subject was united in marriage with Miss Ann, daughter of Robert and Jane Wilson, natives
of Pennsylvania; they have five children, viz., James W., John Hayes, William, Mary Jane (now Mrs. A. Knoop) and
Anna R. Mr. Stewart has always remained on the old home farm; after the children arrived at majority, Mr. Stewart,
being the eldest of the family, bought out the other heirs and became sole owner of the farm; he has 120 acres
of good land, of which 100 acres are in cultivation, with fine buildings and improvements; they are members of
the Presbyterian Church.
