Stewart died, on April 10, 178, in New York city, be was credited with being one of the richest Oierchants In the I'nlled States, for hi wealth was estimated at more than . . Including real estate which, alone, wao assessed at over (5.im.(si. The bulk of his estate was bequeathed to his widow, with million dollars as a peruana! gift to the executor. Henry Hilton. The Stewart funeral, culminating In the Interment of the body In St. Mark's cburchyanl. New York city, was one of (he largest and most Impressive ceremonies of Its kind ever held In the city and then, some two and a half years later. Judge Hilton, the executor of the Stewart estate, elec trified the police with the- announce ment that the grave had been rifled and Mr. Stewart's body stolen. , Upon examination. It developed that an even greater mystery surrounded the affair Hum appeared ii"Ti the 'surface. During the early autumn of 17S, Judge Hilton, learning that the grave had been slightly tanicred with 'and fearing the depredations of ghouls, had caused the Stewart head stone to be removed to another r tlon of the plot, (although t was not thought wise at tlmt time to disturb the remains. The knowledge of this 'change was confined to four persons, but notwithstanding this, the excava tion had been liuidt' with almost nialh- i eniiillcitl precision, the enrth having been cut away straight rlown to the Jemlen eiise which enclosed the coflin. This cusp hud been opened, the lid of the coflin hud been uuscrewed and .the body tnken out presumably being curled olT In a wagon of which the tracks were still visible nearby. ' The most senrchlng inquiries on the part of the police falled.to reveal iiny- ,one who had seen the grave-robber at work, for they hud chosen a stormy night and It was not until several hoiirs after daylight that the watch man had discovered the looting of the merchant's grave. The ghouls had 'left behind them only a newspnper. nn Iron shovel nnd n bull's-eye lantern none of which bore any distinguish ing marks, nor could Ihey be traced by the defectives assigned to the case. It nppenred to lie Impossible that the body of a dead man could be carried across New York city without attract 'ing the slightest notice or that It could be re-Interred or concealed with out detection but this Is precisely what took place, for nothing definite was ever learned of the fate of the re ' mains. Judge Hilton refused to countenance overtures for the return of the body, declaring that neither he nor the es tate would be blackmailed and, when 'n reward of $2!j, H I was finally offered It was made with the distinct under standing tljnt It was not for the body 'itself but for Information which would lead to the detection of the persons who had committed the depredation. The executor of the estate ndvlyd Sirs. Stewart to have no dealings whatever with the men who had stolen the body of her huslmhd nnd the widow, who Is said to have been extremely affected by the blow, fol lowed this advice during the ten re maining years of her llfo. Some time after. the violation of the sanctity of St. Mark's churchyard,, the impression was allowed to gain preva lence that the body had been re covered and that It hnd been re-interred In thp vault of the beautiful .cathedral t Harden City. Long Island. But those who attempted to secure proof of this report found that they 'were blocked at every turn and the question of who stole the body of A. ,T. Stewart and what disposition was made of It remains unsolved to this day. n'rlrrk J'lftv or n:ore leonle at , .' " T, fii I wis heard culte clearly one evening tended the susi-er.
