      Terry Stewart left a comment on your post "Portrait of a Tough Guy: Yank Stewart"

      Yank Stewart was my great uncle, being my father's uncle. Strangely, I was about 13 and living in Roanoke at the time of his capture and imprisonment there. I remember my mother showing my sister, brother, and me the local newspaper stories about him and explaining who he was.

      Over the years, I've read a few articles about him but some of the info in this article I had not heard before. Thanks for making it available.

      With regard to his brother [William Elmer Stewart] and father [Charles William Stewart] (my paternal grandfather and great grandfather) being executed by the state of NC, they too helped to change the prison system. Their executions in the NC electric chair were so brutal and terrifying that the method of execution was changed shortly thereafter.

      Enumerated as William E. Stewart in the 1910 US Census. And, the Stewart family advises that his name was William Elmer Stewart and not C. Elmer Stewart or Charles Elmer Stewart. Accordingly, this database has been changed to William Elmer Stewart. He apparently was called Elmer.

      His birth place also is seen as Montgomery County, Virginia.
