Little Ella W. Stewart was the only daughter of Denison N. STEWART and his wife Abby Jane STARKWEATHER. Born after her parents had two sons, little Ella died at only 9 years of age. She is buried in the Stewart Hill Cemetery in North Stonington, CT a bit of a distance from her father.

Both sons of Denison and Abby (Starkweather) Stewart, moved to Kansas after their father died. William died not too long after they arrived, just like it says in Wheeler's History of Stonington. Edward D. Stewart, (middle name probably Denison) stayed in Kansas.

Edward married twice and was a school teacher. He had no children wit the first wife and two sons with the second. He's not buried with the second wife ( a kind Find-a-Grave volunteer looked for me (in Kansas) so I still have more to research.

But, what happened to Abby (Denison Stewart's wife? Well, she married again....
