Notes for Elizabeth Stewart:|
In a letter written by her granddaughter Elizabeth (daughter of Charles Henry Fonde and Lydia Wragg), Elizabeth Stewart is described as coming from a Scotch-Irish family of sea-faring men. They claimed to be related to the royal Stuarts but we have no hard evidence of that connection. She was supposed to have received a heavy gold chain from one of her sea-faring brothers. Her only son Charles Henry was devoted to her and often referred to her fine, intelligent eyes (according to the letter by his daughter Elizabeth). When her husband died she was left with two young children to raise in Washington so she turned to needlework and keeping boarders. Charles, her son, recorded her death in his Bible as October 2, 1856, age 70. I believe the age was miscalculated and that she was only 60 at her death. Otherwise, she would have been about 10 years older than her husband (who I estimate was born about 1795).
