Memorable Manitobans: Donald M. Stewart (1845-?)


Born at Stratford, Ontario on 9 April 1845, son of Donald Stewart and Isabella McNaughton, he attended school at Brocksden, quitting at the age of 17 to work for 17 years as a farm labourer. He came to Manitoba in April 1879 and hauled wood into the Red River Settlement. He later took up a farm near Russell, disposing of it in 1906 and moving into town where he opened a livery barn.
