Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
January 24, 1918

OBITUARY ~ J. FINDLEY STEWART

Mr. Stewart was born near Salem, Guernsey Co., Ohio, May 19, 1853. Most of his early life was spent in Logan Co., Ohio. When about twenty years of age he came west with his parents and settled in Missouri coming to Iowa in 1861, and has lived in and about Clearfield the most of the remainder of his life. The two interims were about four years spent in Starkville, Miss., and the past two years spent at Rison, Arkansas.

He was married in 1877 to Allie Johnson, who died Oct. 2, 1910. Their only child died in infancy.

Mr Stewart grew up in a Christian home, and in early manhood gave his heart publicly to the Savior. He became a member of the United Presbyterian church of Clearfield soon after its organization in 1881. In about 1890 he was chosen as a ruling elder and served the congregation in this capacity till his [?] to Mississippi. Mr. Stewart was an ever faithful devoted member of the church, rarely missing any of the church services, and was faithful in attendance of Sabbath School, in the closing exercises of which he often gave public expression to a choice but of the lesson truth, which had made an impression on his own heart. These were always to the profit of all who heard.

Mr. Stewart was a well and favorably known citizen of our community. His congenial, sociable nature made him a good companion and a host of friends who today mourn his demise.

His last months were spent in a hospital in the hospital at Pine Bluffs where he suffered intensely of an internal cancer. His last weeks of suffering were relieved, much by the presence at his bedside, of his foster son, who accompanied the body back to the old home, and who has the sympathy of the community in his loss.

Funeral services were held in the United Presbyterian church Saturday at 2 p. m.; interment in Clearfield Cemetery.
