      Biography - That the Western country and especially the Mormon people are Rooseveltian in the size of their families is instanced in the following biography of a Mormon pioneer, J.W. Stewart, father of J.W. Stewart of Lyman, Wyo. The father died a short time ago in Farmington, Utah. The biography in a local paper is as follows:

      James Wesley Stewart was born on the 10th day of May, 1825, in the state of Alabama, county of Tuscaloora, Tuscaloora City. He was one of the little band of pioneers that crossed the plains in 1847, landing in Salt Lake on the 24th day of July. It was a dreary place then, and tried the metal and strength of the bravest.

      Mr. Stewart assisted in making the first irrigating dam on City creek, Salt Lake, in the winter of 1847. It was a hard struggle for him. Being without bread and having to go a thousand miles for flour, he was compelled at times to exist on cow hides during the winter and sego roots in the spring. He was one of the forty-seven men who went ahead of Brigham Young to cut the brush and build a road through Immigration canyon.

      In the year of 1848 Mr. Stewart went to California and participated in the rush for gold, which reached its climax in '49. He was married to Jane Grover on the 29th day of July, 1850, at Deer creek, near Sacramento.

      James Stewart was the father of eleven children at the time of his wife's death. He then married a second wife, Elzira Corbitt, by whom he was father of fourteen children at the time of her death. Of these he is survived by eighteen children.

      James Stewart was a life-long Mormon and came to Cokeville six years ago from Fort Bridger, Wyo. Since that time he has resided with his eldest daughter, Mrs. John Bourne, until the time of his death, Saturday, March 22, 1913 at 8:55 a.m.

      The remains were taken to Farmington, Utah, and laid to rest beside those of his wife.
