Evans STEWART, Jr.

Evans STEWART, Jr. was the only son of Evans STEWART and his wife Hannah Josephine BARBER. Evans, Jr. was born 18 Jun 1917 in Westerly, RI and died [self-inflicted gunshot wound to the brain] 28 Jan 1951 in Columbus, OH.

Evans graduated from Cranston High School [East] and attended junior college. He was attractive and popular. He could play the piano by ear.

Evans was a veteran of WWII [rank of private, warrant officer] and was 5'7 inches tall and weighed 125 lbs. on his enlistment papers on 21 Apr 1941.

He married Henrietta, widow of JONES, and lived with her and her son Tommy in Columbus until his death by suicide. This was a family tragedy that happened in my lifetime. I have a locket he gave me at my birth.

Evans STEWART, Jr. was the uncle of Midge Frazel
