Dr. Ephron Park Stewart b. 8 Jul 1812 in Ohio. On 3 Apr 1832 in Harrison Co., Ohio he married Mary Ann Rigg. Mary Ann was born abt. 1814/15 in Ohio. She died 12 Nov 1852 and is buried at the Perrysville Hist. M.E. Church
Cemetery in Perrysville, Carroll Co., OH. Mary Ann Rigg and Dr. Stewart had 3 known children. Dr. Stewart next married Mariah Barnhouse who was b. 1820 in Ohio. She died 19 Oct 1864 and is buried at the Perrysville Hist. M.E. Church Cemetery. Mariah Barnhouse and Dr. Stewart had 4 known children. Next Dr. Stewart married Francina or Francenel Ritt who was born abt. 1820 and died Jan. 1893. She is buried at Crossroads Cem., Tuscarawas Co., Ohio.
They did not have children together. Dr. Stewart died after 25 Mar 1893. Nobody has been able to find where he is buried. It was said that when he died he wanted to be buried in an unmarked grave. He didn't want anybody
from Perrysville to dig him up to take him back there for burial and possibly transport some epidemic in the process. We don't have documentation of that statement, though. We descend through Dr. Stewart's oldest son (his second oldest child) Jason Leroy Stewart.
