Myrtle Maude Stewart

#9
***Michael John Stewart's great grandmother***

Myrtle Maude Stewart was born 25 Apr 1893 in Stamford Township, Welland County, Ontario, Canada

Myrtle Maude Stewart was the daughter of Daniel Isaac Stewart and Elizabeth Grubb.

I have been unable to located her in the 1911 Census of Canada.   She may be the "Martha" living with Elizabeth.  See the post for Daniel Isaac Stewart for the weirdness here.

Myrtle Maude Stewart married Franklin Hudson Stewart on 25 Dec 1914 in Stamford, Welland County, Ontario, Canada.  They were 2nd cousins and 3rd cousins once removed.

In the 1921 Census of Canada, Myrtle is living with her husband and two sons, Cecil and Walter.  The Ancestry.com index had her as age "48", but she was actually listed as "28".  The Ancestry.com index states the name of the town was "Stanford", but it is actually "Stamford" written on the page (and actually the name of the place).

Myrtle Maude Stewart died in 1980.

Myrtle Maude Stewart is buried in Lundy's Lane Cemetery, Ontario, Canada

The children of Franklin Hudson Stewart and Myrtle Maude Stewart include:


Walter Stewart

Ronald William Stewart

Alice Illene Stewart
