BX November 12, 1917

Another Paris boy has made the supreme sacrifice in the person of Private Mackie Stewart, word being received by his mother to that effect yesterday. Private Stewart was the youngest son of Mary J. and the late Thomas AJ. Stewart, and was only 21 years of age on the 28th of October. He was born in Oshawa and came to Paris with his family about 15 years ago. He was educated here and also at the Brantford Business College, and was an adherent of the Presbyterian Church. He was of a bright and cheerful character and will be missed by a wide circle of friends with whom he was very popular. Besides his mother, he leaves three sisters Mrs. C.C. Johnston of Forest, Ont., Misses Mabel and Grace at home and two brothers, George of Hickory Penn., and William J. of Hamilton. He enlisted with the 125th Battalion in Sept. 1915, later being transferred to the C.M.R. at Hamilton where he was promoted to sergeant and clerk of the orderly room. In April last he went overseas with Capt. Hall’s draft as supernumerary. He reverted to the ranks in England in order to get in France and went with a unit to the 102nd British Columbia infantry, reaching France in August, and had been some six weeks on the fighting line. At the time of his enlistment, the late Private Stewart was employed as the office staff of the Sanderson Harold Co.
