Old St. Andrews



Moses Stewart



St. Andrews Bay Pilot, Dec 20, 1888

The oldest resident of St. Andrews at the date of his death on Friday last, was Mr. Moses Stewart. He was the last pureblooded Negro born in this vicinity. The late Mr. Stewart was a most exemplary man, and during the long period of his pilgrimage of 95 years, led a most harmless life. He retained his sight and hearing until nearly the last. He was a member of the Church of England, and until failing health prevented, was a regular attendant at its services. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon. His remains were taken from his late residence, Queen Street, to All Saints Church and from thence to the rural cemetery, and were followed by a number of relatives and friends.
