Edward Stewart you are referring to can be found in the census with a Joseph Stewart. His death certificate is listed online with MO archives. I live in Adair County. Please email me as my Grandfather Andrew Jackson Patterson was his grandson. Jack's mother, Bertha Helen, was a sister to your Willie. Her second husband, William Henry Patterson came from the same line of Stewarts. Henrys dad was George Patterson, son of Missouri Stewart Patterson, Claborn, Stivers. Missouri was the daughter of Joseph and Mariah Harden Stewart as well. To top it all off, Henrys mom and Berthas mom were Stivers sisters, and Missouri's last husband was a brother, Enoch, to those Stivers sisters. What a confusing family. Missouri married 3 times, all in adair co. marriage records online. My dad confirmed recently that Willie was a brother to Bertha. That means you were related to Velma Stewart Pope. I knew her well. She was Willies daughter.
