Allan McNab Stewart, a Lieutenant in No 5 Company 13th Battalion V.M.I was interred with military honours and this monument erected by his 'brother officers'. He enlisted around 1864 and though made it through the Fenian Raids of 1866, he was the first officer who died in connection with this Battalion in 1872, though I could not find out how or where this happened. The son of Alexander and Anna Maria, he came from a line of Stewarts that could trace their line back to James Stewart and Robert the Bruce. However, neither he nor his two brothers ever married or had children so the line ended with his generation. His mother was the younger sister of Allan Napier MacNab who was to become the Prime Minister of the Province of Canada (and who built Dundurn Castle which has been featured in this blog several times).
