Looking for information on Darwin Walter Stuart b. 1909 Wisconsin. In the 1940 census he is living in Beaver Brook,
Washburn County, WI with his wife L. Jane their son Jerome W. and his parents Walter A. and Eva.
Darwin is married to my 2nd cousin. Her name is Leonilda Jane Ewald. b. 1914 Ramsey Co., MN. Her stage name is Georgia D'Law. Darwin and Leonilda were married in 1935 in Montana. She signed the marriage cert as Georgia J. Ewald.
I have been trying to find where Darwin and wife are buried.
His wife died somewhere between 1955 and 1958.
Any information on this family will be appreciated.
Darwin Walter Stuart and his wife Leonilda Jane are buried in the Spooner Cemetery. Leonilda Jane died 21 Oct 1954 and her husband Darwin died 25 July 1965.
Thank you very much for your reply.
Is there an obit for Leonilda and Darwin?

Thank you so very much for the obits on Leonilda and Darwin Stuart. I appreciate your help.
By any chance is there any information On Jerome W. Stuart and his stepmother Betty Tima. I'm not for sure but, I think Betty is either Emma Tima Westervelt or sister of Emma
Tima Westervelt. A Emma Tima was the wife of Charles
Westervelt Jr. Here in Minnesota.
Again Thank you for your help. I have been looking for
15 years for these families information.
I will look at the Register of Deeds office in Shell Lake and see if I can find a birth date for Jerome, it may help in searching for him. Betty does not appear to be buried with Darwin, so I am wondering if she married again after his death. I will look for that as well but I won't be able to look for this until the end of Sept.
Thank you for your help. I have Jerome W Stuart born
1939 Wisconsin and his death date is: Oct 14, 1980 Walworth
Hopefully this information is right.
