This is a photograph of my grandfather, Evans Stewart. He loved to have me sit in his lap and listen to him read to me.
My very first book, inscribed to me for my second birthday was an Audubon Bird Guide. Grandpa and I would watch the birds from his favorite spot in the dining room.
My grandmother, upon meeting my husband, was overcome. She said he looked so much like Evans and she gave me this photo.
She was right.
Evans is buried behind the large Denison stone with his wife, Hannah Josephine Barber, his son Evans Stewart, Jr. and his brother Dudley W. Stewart. His father, Charles and grandfather Dudley are buried nearby.
