Tempe Burton
Birth: 1821
Death: Mar. 1, 1925

3~10~1925

"OLDEST PERSON IN JACKSON COUNTY DIES

Ocean Springs, March 10. "Aunt"
Tempy Burton, the oldest person in
Jackson County, died this past week
at the home of her son, Alf Stuart.
Tempy was said to be 104 years of
age and had resided here for forty
years. She was an ex-slave and made
her home with the late Mrs.
W.R. Stewart for seventy years.
When Mrs. Stewart was married
"Aunt" Tempy was given to her as a
wedding present and was Mrs.
Stewart's maid. When slavery was
abolished she refused to leave her
mistress and remained with her until
death. Mrs. Stewart died about two
months ago. The funeral of Aunt
Tempy was held in Ocean Springs
and was largely attended by both
white and colored residents."


It has recently been proven that Alfred B. Stuart was indeed
the son of Col. William R. Stuart. His mother
Tempy, had six more children.
