      History
      Urban was a Utah pioneer of 1847. When five years of age he moved with his parents to Madison County, Illinois, where he lived until 1835, when he went to Missouri. He married Lydia Gage Jacobs. At this time the mob was very hostile and by the advice of the Prophet Joseph Smith the family moved into Far West were Brother Stewart stood guard during those troublous times. In the early spring of 1839, he moved to Quincy, Illinois, and in 1840, he located on Sugar Creek, Iowa, where his house and nearly everything he had was destroyed by fire.

      In the Spring of 1841 he moved to Nauvoo, working much of the time on the Nauvoo Temple until 1843, when he and his brother Levi were called on a mission to Southern Illinois, but were recalled shortly after on account of the death of their Mother and Urban's little son, Henry. He took part in the trials incident to those times in and around Nauvoo, and besides his labors on the the public works, he spent much time on guard duty.

      At the time of the exodus in 1846, he traveled west and located temporarily with his co-religionists at Winter Quarters on the west bank of the Missouri River. He went up the river to what was called "Brigham's Farm" and helped put in crops, and in June, 1847, he left for the Great Salt Lake Valley, where he arrived in September, 1847, bringing provisions for eighteen months, together with farming tools and other articles in one wagon.

      Brother Stewart took part in the White Mountain Mission and helped to put in crops in Clover Valley, now in Nevada, which place afterwards was given up to the Indians. Brother Stewart endured the hardships incident to the early settlement of Utah uncomplainingly and frequently subsisted on roots and whatever could be obtained to keep himself and family alive. He was one of the pioneers of Beaver, Utah, where he resided for a great many years, taking a most active part in establishing the institutions of that place. Subsequently he moved to Wayne County, and became a resident of Grover, where he acted as presiding Elder and where he died at the age of eighty-one years old. Brother Stewart had five families and was the father of thirty-three children, twenty-four or whom survived him.
