1871 Canadian Census
Essa Township, Simcoe County, Ontario

Stewart, John, aged 46, born Ireland, Wesleyan Methodist, farmer
Stewart, Margaret M., aged 40, born W.I.
Stewart, Anne G., aged 20, born Ontario
Stewart, James W., aged 18, born Ontario
Stewart, John A.S. (or L.), aged 16, born Ontario
Stewart, William A.R., aged 13, born Ontario
Stewart, Margaret E.M., aged 11, born Ontario
Stewart, Stephen W.L., aged 8, born Ontario
Stewart, Rachel A.M., aged 4, born Ontario
Stewart, Anne, aged 94, born Ireland
Stewart, George E.I(?), aged 28, born Ontario

Margaret gives her address as 40 Charles Street West, Toronto on James' death certificate. Also indicates that James was buried at Mount Pleasant. You can contact the cemetery to see if Margaret is buried with him.

Stewart would have been born in Whitchurch (note spelling), York County, Ontario. On both his first and second marriages, it indicates, however, that he was born in Essa Township, and was, at the time of his marrige, living in Beulah, Manitoba. The marriage took place in Newmarket, York County. His first marriage was in Whitchurch. I did check Manitoba Vital Stats for his death record, but there is no match. If he was a Methodist minister, you should contact the United Church Archives in Toronto who should be able to tell you at least where he served during his ministry which may help you narrow down a place of death.
