Memorable Manitobans: James W. Stewart (1867-?)


Born in Renfrew County, Ontario on 20 December 1867, son of Peter Stewart and Mary Ferguson, he worked on the family farm until 1880 when he moved to Manitoba. Ten years later, he bought a farm at Section 36 Township 14 Range 17 near Franklin. On 13 April 1892, he married Mary Lang of Minnedosa. They had nine children: Russell Stewart, William Stewart, Leonard Stewart, Viola Stewart, Marvin Stewart, Roy Stewart, Eva Stewart, Eleanor Stewart, and Jean Stewart. He was a member of the IOOF and the Grain Growers Association of Manitoba.
