Hazel Rupert Evans:
The night Grandma Eliza Combs Downing died she had cooked supper for Grandpa and Uncle Dan Downing's three orphaned boys, washed the dishes, set the table for breakfast, turning the plates upside down over the silverware as was the custom, tied the fringe on several handwoven rugs which she had just gotten home from Betsey Stewart's, had a heart attack and was dead by 8 o'clock.
As a child I well remember that my mother always took her sewn rags to Betsy and Rachel Stewart to be woven into rugs. They lived about ½ mile east and a mile north of Bee Ridge school.

Samuel Malone Stewart (son of John and Sarah (Sample) Stewart)
19 Apr 1824: born Putnam County, Indiana.
24 Mar 1850: married Vigo County, Indiana, to Mary Elizabeth See (23 May 1829 Monroe County, Indiana 25 Nov 1906, age 72 years, 6 months, 2 days; buried Bee Ridge Cemetery, Brazil, Clay County, Indiana), daughter of George and Sarah (Willoughby) See. Mary Elizabeth, in the 1900 census, said that both her parents were born in Kentucky. The town of Bloomington, Indiana was built on William See's (Mary Elizabeth's grandfather) farm. William See was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and a pensioner in the War of 1812 (according to the records at the Camagua, Kentucky court house). The Willoughbys were land and slave owners of Kentucky. They freed their slaves when they moved to Indiana. The Willoughbys came originally from the Highlands of Scotland. Mary Elizabeth's father (George See) died when she was about two years old and her mother (Sarah Willoughby See) brought the three children to live with her family in Indiana. Consequently, she knew little of the Sees. Sarah's grandfather Willoughby was the first grown person buried in the Billtown Cemetery, which is located on Rd 340, just a few miles west of Brazil. After Sarah's father died, Uncle Ben Willoughby (on Ruperts' farm near Otter Cree) built a fence around the grave. The Sees came and took Sarah and the children back to Kentucky. They were well to do plantation and slave owners. Sarah was gone a year and when she came back there was no fence and she couldn't find the grave. 4 Mar 1851: son John William born.
