Memory Monday

Denison N. STEWART Death Notice by midgefrazel
Denison N. STEWART Death Notice, a photo by midgefrazel on Flickr.

Stewart. - In North Stonington, January 19th,
Denison N. Stewart, aged 59 years. 

Glued to the pages of my Stewart family Bible, is this tiny death notice. Once covered in yellowing aged cellophane tape, it was very hard to read.

The Bible belonged to Dudley Wheeler Stewart, my 2nd great grandfather. and after years of research, I can say that Denison was Dudley's favorite sibling.

He was big brother. Tomorrow, on Tombstone Tuesday, we will look at Denison's gravestone.

A small piece of treasure, Midge. How wonderful to have this so clearly valued. Time to write our memoirs and/or genealogy history, eh?
