My great grandfather John Franklin STEWART is the founder of the Hill City Times. I am looking for information on the family of his wife, Ella Francis COLLINS. They were wed 1 Jan 1901 in Hill City. Ella's family lived in Moreland. She had uncles who worked in the printing trade.

COLLINS, George W, from Moreland, he was a mercantile owner. He was born 3 Dec 1840 in Broome Co, NY. He died in Moreland in 11 Nov 1866. His wife was Mary C. CHURCHILL. There was a brother to George, COLLINS, Charles, printer, both he and were George Civil War vets.
I would also like any info on STEWART, Wm, and STEWART James both were attorneys. James arrived in Graham Co about 1866. The Hill City Democrat from 1889 tells me he was married, had a baby. The paper also told me Wm practiced law in Hoxie, Skelton and was a Civil War vet. In 1865 he married and moved to Kansas.
If anyone could get newspaper obits for these individuals I would be most greatful.
Thank you,
Janet Lee
