BRATTLEBORO

DEATH OF CHARLES W. STEWART

Former Prominent Business Man Was a Civil War Veteran

Charles Wayland Stewart, 71, for many years a resident of Brattleboro, died yesterday morning at his home on Green street, after an illness of over three years. Since last April he had been confined to his bed. Mr. Stewart was born in North Londonderry, April 2, 1843, the son of Hiram and Mehitable (Howe) Stewart. He enlisted as drummer boy in the 16th Vermont regiment of Townshend, and served the nine-months' term of service of that regiment.

In 1864 he married Sarah Jane Temple of Londonderry and they went to Brattleboro, where Mr. Stewart entered the employ of the Estey organ company when the shop was on Flat street. He continued in the shops for some 30 years. During the middle 80's he had a piano store, the only one in Brattleboro, in the Bank block, and continued the sale of various makes of pianos until the Estey company put their own make of pianos on the market, when he dropped the sale of other makes and made a specialty of the product of that concern.

About 10 years ago Mr. Stewart retired from active business. Mrs. Stewart had died in 1896, and his failing health forced him to drop the more active life of a businessman. He spent five winters in the South because of his failing health, but even the change of climate failed to benefit him greatly. He was a member of the First Baptist church, of Wantastiquet lodge of Odd Fellows and of west River lodge of Masons of Londonderry. He was also a member of Connecticut Valley council and Beauseant commandery, Knights Templars, of Brattleboro. He leaves one daughter, Miss Izetta M. Stewart of Brattleboro, who has cared for him through his long illness. The funeral will be held Saturday.
