The following information is from a newspaper that was sent to me by Kim Brady,  she is Ephron and Mary Ann (Rigg) Stewart's great-great-great granddaughter:



Ephron Stewart  must have died after 22 March 1902 according to the following newspaper article.

"Coshocton Daily Age" March 22, 1902 - Methodism at Bakersville,

..."Dr. E.P. Stewart, who is upwards of 90 years of age, and Brother Henry Powell, who is in his 88th year, met and embraced each other, and wept like children,  feeling that in all probability it would be the last series of meeting they would both be permitted to attend."
