Stewart, James Warren

 

Stewart, William Augustus

I have information from my GGrandfather's CSA pension records that he is buried in Dresden Cemetery.   I have been unable to find information other than the pension with the application for mortuary warrant and his name listed on a Coriscana funeral home record.  There are three unmarked graves next to my GGrandmother in Dresden but all attempts to contact anyone with knowledge of burials in Dresden have gone answered.  Name is: William Augustus Stewart...(also shown as Steward and Stuart on War Department Records) was a Pvt Co G, 26th Tenn. Inf (enlisted Aug 28, 1861 - he left this unit and was a Pvt. Co A, 36th Ga Inf (enlisted Jan 15, 1862), captured at Vicksburg, Ms July 4, 1863, paroled at Vicksburg July 9, 1863.  He died at Graham, Young County, Texas on July 1, 1922.  Pension #24526.

I have reason to believe his brother, James Warren Stewart, with whom he served in the Ga unit, is also buried in Dresden as his wife is buried there. He died in 1914 prior to getting a pension but I am hopeful of finding his death certificate.  Have been unable to locate William's death certificate....for some unknown reason....probably another misspelling as I found my grandmother's finally under "Stuart".  I will find it!!!!  Plan to visit the Young Co funeral home later this year......which has buried the "whole" family forever so hopefully they will have some type of record also.
