Little Henry T. STEWART

The family Bible says "Little Henry at rest". This photo of this cute little baby is the only photo of him. It scanned fairly dark but I have been working on it to make it clearer.

Henry Trueman Stewart, son of Dudley and Eliza (Denison) Stewart was born in North Stonington on 16 Sept 1863 and died 10 Dec 1864 not too long after this photo was taken when he was 10 1/2 months old.

My family always paused over his headstone and said, "Poor little Henry". He rests with his parents.

Can you imagine how hard it must have been for a mother to part with such a cute little guy? How sad!

It is such an adorable picture. I am sure the parents cherished it with all their heart.

What a great photo. I love the expression on his face. It makes the story even more heartbreaking.
