The funeral of Harvey C. Stewart was attended from the church at East Wallingford Monday afternoon, March 19th, during the worst storm of the season. Rev. S. H. Archibald, pastor of the Baptist church at Wallingford, conducted the services, assisted by Rev. Mr. Patterson of East Wallingford. The pall bearers were the four brothers of the deceased – A. H. Stewart of Providence, R. I., Frederick T. Stewart and Dr. W. E. Stewart of Wallingford, and Warren F. Stewart of Mechanicsville. He leaves a wife and two sons, the eldest of whom has been a resident of Topeka, Kansas, for the past year, but arrived in town a few days before his father's death. Mr. Stewart was 48 years of age and had lived in Wallingford for more than twenty years. He possessed a genial disposition and took a lively interest in the political and business affairs of the town, having served in the capacity of Selectman for several years and held other offices of trust. A large circle of relatives and friends mourn his early death.
