The 20 April 1925 Wilmington News-Dispatch, in reporting on the funerals of Charles W. Stewart and William Elmer Stewart, included the following:
Just ten years ago The Dispatch printed the following story:
"Many friends of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Stewart, 118 Meares street, will tenderly sympathize with them in the death of their son, Oscar W. Stewart, which occurred April 15 at the emergency hospital at the Panama-Pacific exposition grounds. His death was a result of injuries received on April 14. No particulars as to the way Mr. Stewart was injured have yet been received. He was 21 years old on November 18, last. He was a member of 158th Company, Coast Artillery and was stationed at Fort Winfield Scott, Cal., and has been in the service since September 1913.
"The remains will be interred in the National cemetery here. Mr. Stewart is survived by his father, mother, three brothers, and two sisters."
It was in another newspaper report that a Ferris wheel accident was mentioned as contributing to the death of Oscar Winfred Stewart. However, subsequent research has revealed that there was no Ferris wheel at the 1915 San Francisco World's Fair. There was something called the Aeroscope that took people up in one big car and did a sort of circular motion. However, whether the Aeroscope was involved in the death of Oscar W. Stewart is unknown. It is ironic, however, to consider that Charles Willis (Yank) Stewart while at Alcatraz Prison could, if he ever had a view, see the site of the 1915 San Francisco World's Fair (which was on the waterfront) and where he had lost a brother in 1915.
