    • The birth record for James Oscar Stewart shows his name as James Eskine which I assume is a transcription error. His birth was recorded on March 5, 1881, as having occured on September 19, 1880. The records of several births appear to have been made at the same time...not when the actual birth happened. Elsewhere, on this site you will find a PDF of the record.
