Andrew Jackson III & Helena Roseberry Young Stewart

Little is known about the Stewarts, except they owned property on the far west side of Highland - the northwest corner of the Harry Savill homestead (Number 8 on the 1958 Highland map) plus a lot of other properties nearby. Andrew was born April 10, 1873, and Rose (as she was called) was born July 30, 1876. They were married October 1, 1901, in the Salt Lake Temple by John R. Winder and they had three daughters: Helena, Dorothy, and Lois. He was a physician and surgeon with specialties in eye, ear and throat, practicing in Provo.

Andrew and Helena Stewart

Andy died May 25, 1919, of lobar pneumonia, at the age of 46. It seems there was a lot of confusion following his death as he left no will but had considerable properties. His wife, as administratrix, leased 46 acres of their property to the Reimschiissels in 1927. Rose died August 6, 1937, before the estate was settled and finally in 1952, after delinquent taxes were paid by Arnold Dransfield (q.v.), he took title to those 46 acres. Water rights were given December 18, 1943, to C. Lucius Laudie. No other information is available about the family.
