Fannie and Burney Stewart

Fannie (Ringstaff) STEWART, born 28 March 1872, died 29 April 1905.  Married Pleasant Stewart 24 November 1889, Williamson County Texas.  I feel that Fannie likely died due to a childbirth related illness, as her death was three months after her son’s birth.  Fannie is buried between the graves of two babies:   The identity of one baby is unknown, the other is Burney STEWART, born 9 January 1905, died 17 August 1905.  Burney’s death was likely due to his mother’s death 4 months prior.

Known children of Pleasant and Fannie STEWART:

i.  Dora STEWART, born September 1890 in Texas.
ii.  Maggie STEWART, born February 1891 in Texas.
iii.  Jasper Riley STEWART, born in Cedar Park Texas 28 February 1894, died 14 April 1950 in Leakey, Real County, Texas.
iv.  Mollie STEWART, born January 1895 in Texas.
v.  Stella STEWART, born March 1897 in Texas.
vi.  Wilbern STEWART, born 1900 in Texas.
vii.  Bertha STEWART, born 1902 in Texas.
viii.  Burney STEWART, born likely in Texas 9 January 1905, died 17 August 1905.

    I have additional information on the other brothers of Arthur DInk Stewart and Pleasant Newton Stewart and also on father, Jasper Newton Stewart which I will try to send soon. Karen

    • Thanks Karen ! Why didn’t I think to ask you ???? I like this explanation better because Fannie’s middle initial bugged me. The Joyce Elane STEWART that I am aware of was not their daughter; she was Arthur and Beulah’s granddaughter through their son Paul Jasper. Also, Joyce was born 30 June 1944 and Died 25 August 1947. Unless there were two girls named the same. If so, the unknown on the other side of Fannie is undoubtedly Joyce Elane. See this link: Does anybody know where Dink is buried? I’m zooming in closer and closer to Fannie’s grave…..

  2. I have some more information on Pleasant Newton Stewart- he was married to Fannie Francis Ringstaff 24 Nov 1889 in Williamson County, Texas. She died sometime between 1900 and 1910, as he is in the 1910 census in Travis County, Texas as a widower.

    • Thank you for helping me with Fannie’s maiden name. I have edited the blog. As daughter in law of Jasper Newton Stewart and of Anne Buttery Stewart, I cannot help but think that Jasper and Anne are buried near to Fannie and those 2 grandchildren. Great mystery.

      • I’m the great grand daughter of Paul Jasper and Callie Teresa Massingill Stewart, any information would be greatly apreciated

  3. Does anyone know any connections for a A. D. Stewart that was on the Burnet Co. Tax Roll from 1890 to 1896. And, a Mrs. A. D. Stewart is buried in the Bethel Cemetery. This is N.E of Burnet. ?? Appreciate an answer.
