George O. Stewart

GEORGE O. STEWART, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Mac Stewart, was born in this city August 29th, 1895. He attended the public schools in this city from which he graduated in 1913. Later he went to Davenport, where he entered the Brown’s Business College, from which he graduated in 1915. A position was offered him with the Naeckle Paint Co., which position he continued to hold until he was called into the service. He was summoned in the call of April 25th, reporting at Anamosa, from where he was sent to Camp Dodge and was assigned to Co. G, 351 Inft. His duties for some time were mostly clerical work and he did not have the opportunity of receiving much training. Some time later he was
transferred to the 163 Depot Brigade, and while with this Brigade was promoted to Corporal. After several weeks training all the boys that went to Camp Dodge with his contingent were sent to another camp with the exception of Joe Lenfeld and himself and then George was again transferred to his original company and promoted to the rank of Corporal. He left Camp Dodge the first part of August, this year, for Camp Mills, N. Y., and sailed from there for overseas August 14th. The official announcement of his safe arrival was received by relatives in this city. In a very short time he became active in the front line trenches, and at the present time the mother is anxiously awaiting some word from him as the last letter received was dated November 3rd. "Percy” was one of the popular young men in this city and his return will be welcomed by all.
