Uzziah & Jane E. Stewart (pg. 4)

    In 1866 the court sold the Stewart faIm to Peter Hutchinson, but subsequently voided the sale because the Stewart children had indicated willingness to purchased the farm for a larger amount. In 1867 Joseph c., Jane E., and Uzziah Stewart Jr. put down $500 hand money toward purchasing the farm for $7800, but were not able to pay the remainder despite being granted an extension. In April 1868 the Orphan's Court sold the farm to Pittsburgh attorney Thomas Ewing for $6815, ending the Stewart family's 72-year ownership of the property. Ewing sold the farm for $9000 a year later.
