Stewart, John (1)
Stewart, John (1), the apostle to the Wyandots, was a mulatto, with a mixture of Indian blood, and was born of free parents iii Virginia. While yet a youth he removed to Ohio — where he was converted, and joined the Methodist Church. In 1814 he felt it to be his duty to preach, and to journey towards the Northwest with that object in view. Acting upon this impression, he traveled until he came to the Wyandot Reservation at Upper Sandusky. Here he labored with considerable success, and in February 1817, the revival broke out afresh. Stewart continued to work among them until the Wyandot nation became Christianized. In 1819 the Ohio Conference took charge of the mission, and Stewart labored with the white preachers till his death, in 1860. See Zion's Herald, Jan. 16, 1861.
