Hi Paul, I've been looking at the names that you posted for the Stewart family in the Widener cemetery of St. Francis Co. AR. In my research of my Stewart family in Batesville, Independence Co., AR I've ran across an obituary of Ira B. Stewart. According to the 1900 and 1910 census he was living in St. Francis Co. with mother Martha J. Stewart. (From Ancestry Martha J. Stewart was the widow of John Stewart). The obituary says that he was from Wideman, AR which could be Izard Co., AR. This does not fit with census records. To make a long story short;;; Is there any way to can verify that he is the son of Mrs. John Stewart buried in the Widener cemetery. I'm enclosing his obituary so that you can check out the death date. This is not family of mine that I know of, but it would be nice to find him a home. If you have access to newspapers he might appear in the June 1917 issue. I'm sure he would be buried next to his mother. Since you have taken the time to look up other information I thought you might find this interesting enough to check out. If you don't have the time or desire I understand. Donnie in Indiana======
