Oct. 3, 1914
William Stewart, aged 81, died this morning at his home on Circular avenue of a general breaking down incident to old age. He was a native of Londonderry, Ire., but came to this country when a youth of 21. He located first in Brooklyn, N.Y., and later went to Rutland, Vt., where he was married. In 1864, he enlisted at Rutland in the 7th Vermont volunteer infantry and saw service with his regiment.
About 46 years ago he came to Pittsfield and had since made his home here.
He was a watchmaker by trade and followed that business until about 16 years ago when he retired. For years he took care of the First church clock and under his skillful supervision, it was noted for its accuracy and regularity. He also used to care for "the old clock on the stairs," in the Plunkett residence on East street, the venerable timepiece made famous by the Poet Longfellow. He was a member of Berkshire Grand Army post.
He leaves two daughters, Mrs. Frank Larkin and Mrs. James Eagan, both of this city, also several nieces , one of whom is Mrs. Charles Jerome of this city, and 10 grandchildren and one great grandchild.
The funeral will be held from St. Joseph's church Monday morning at 10 o'clock with a solemn high mass and burial will be in St. Joseph's cemetery.
