Rutland Daily Herald, May 9, 1930 [William E. Stewart]:

Wallingford - Mrs. W.E. Stewart received word yesterday of the death of her husband, Dr. Stewart, aged 86 years, in Los Angeles, Cal. Dr. Stewart was a native of Wallingford and for many years a prominent citizen, coming here from Dorset. Failing health caused him to retire from his profession several years ago and he went to California to spend some time with his children. Burial will be in the family lot here, and announcement of the services will be made when definite time of the arrival of the body is known.
