Private Stewart contracted typhoid fever and was in the United States General Hospital the last part of May to early June 1862. He rejoined the regiment and was killed at the Battle of Brawner Farm on August 28th, 1862. He had two cousins that also served in the regiment. One of them, Alexander, looked for his body after the battle and was captured by the rebels.


His body was never identified and is probably buried as a "Unknown" soldier.
