Hi Phyllis,

William gave you a lot, but I found a bit more. There is a US WW1 draft reg. for Russel Creighton Stewart which shows him as born

July 2, 1878. It says he is a US citizen by father's naturalization before registrar's majority - which should mean his father was naturalized before Russel became an adult.
So that tells me that he would have come to the US with his parents - or at least with his father.

Odd thing - 1920 census shows Russell arrived US 1890, 1930 census says he arrived 1883

AHH - just found death for Russell which shows wife as Hulda so that fits AND shows parents as Alfred Stewart and Mabel West. (you can see this entry at - free site

BUT even with this added info I have not found the family in 1881 Canada census, nor in 1880 US. I also did not find a marriage for an Alfred Stewart and Mabel West in Ontario.
