The town of Tom, Oklahoma was named for him. The town formally came into being in 1916 when a post office was established in Tom Stewart's store with him as the first postmaster. The community was thus named for him.

Following the death of Thomas Stewart on September 30, 1927 The McCurtain Democrat newspaper ran the following eulogy: "Tom was stopped with sorrow Thursday afternoon when the news was wafted over the village that Mother Stewart and her husband Tom had passed away, the later having been in bad health for over a year. They were taken sick with malaria on Sunday night before. On Monday morning their home physician was called and attention was given their case which at that time was not alarming. Each day they grew weaker with consulting physicians attending, until Thursday afternoon it was noticed that Mother Stewart was suddenly unconscious. A physician was hurriedly called and he pronounced a blood vessel had broken on the brain. And the husband was also in a serious condition. They continued to grow weaker throughout the night. Mother Stewart's spirit passed away most peacefully the following morning at 6:00 AM and Mr. Stewart likewise at 12:00 noon the same day, each passing over the river to the great beyond within six hours of each other; neither knowing that the other was going. They were laid side by side and those viewing them said they were so natural they looked as though they were taking a quiet slumber. They will be missed more than usual because they were pioneers. The town of Tom, Oklahoma was named for him and the town of America, Oklahoma was named for her". One of Tom Stewart's grandsons tells the story of the time that Tom got hijacked and the hijacker was rather disappointed. Tom carried two wallets with him and the hijacker got the empty one.

James & Shirley Webb visited the graves of Tom & Maggie Stewart at the Tom
cemetery in August 1996.

Thomas married America Arminda "Maggie" SUGGS on 16 Aug 1876. America was born on 5 Apr 1856 in Mississippi. She died on 30 Sep 1927 in Tom, McCurtain County, Oklahoma and was buried on 1 Oct 1927 in Tom, McCurtain County, Oklahoma.

The town of America, Oklahoma was named for her.

Shirley & James Webb visited the cemetery at Tom Oklahoma in July 1996 and saw the gravestone of Arminda America Suggs.

The newsletter of the McCurtain County Genealogical Society for March 1992
carried an article written by Patsy Stevens on The Stewart Family. It gave some of the history of the family as they lived in Tom Oklahoma. The McCurtain Democrat newspaper on Thursday, October 6, 1927 ran the following obituary:"Mrs America Stewart, age 71 years, died at her home in Tom, September 30 at 6 AM. Her husband, Thomas Stewart, 70 years old, died at 12 o'clock noon September 30 from the shock of the death of his wife. The double funeral service of this pioneer couple was held in the Bryan cemetery on Saturday, October 1, 1927 at 3:00 PM. The service was in charge of Rev. M L Matthews and Rev. Applebury. Tom Oklahoma was named for Mr. Stewart and America Oklahoma was named for Mrs. Stewart. Nothing remains of the once flourishing town of America which was located on the Frisco Railroad four miles from the Oklahoma-Arkansas border. The town was founded in 1903 by William Spencer who had come to the Indian Territory the previous year and settled at Goodwater, six miles to the northwest. Realizing the advantage of being situated near the railroad, Spencer moved to the new site. The town was named for America Stewart, wife of the first postmaster, Tom Stewart. The post office began operating on July 24, 1903. And then came the Great Depression which was the beginning of the end for America, Oklahoma. There was no longer profit in cotton farming and most of the residents moved to other towns or states. The post office closed on February 15, 1944.

287. Malissa Elizabeth STEWART (Susan SPRINGER , John , Dennis ) was born on 11 Mar 1860 in Corinth, Alcorn County, Mississippi. She died on 4 Aug 1962 in Sinton, San Patricio County, Texas and was buried on 6 Aug 1962 in Martin Cemetery, Hays County, Texas.

James & Shirley Webb visited her grave in the Martin Cemetery on February 24, 1995.

The following was written about grandmother Malissa Hamm.
"GRANDMA HAMM" was always a very special person in our Allen family. It seemed that Olene Allen Pfeiffer, mother of Gayle was born prematurely and only weighed around three pounds. Arnie and George Allen had four other children when she was born, so "GRANDMA HAMM" came to help take care of Arnie and the new baby. She said "give her to me and she'll be fine and make it". She made a cardboard box, with blankets and put it near the wood stove. Of course it was like the modern day isolettes in Neo-natal units of today. So, she was very special to my mother. After her husband, James B Hamm passed away (diabetes), she came to stay with different children. Most of my life she lived with her youngest daughter, Hattie Cave and her family in Sinton, Texas. I couldn't begin to tell you how many birthday parties the entire Allen family attended for her. Malissa Stewart Hamm lived to be almost 103 years old. She was the perfect example of a perfect old age with wonderful memories of traveling in a group of covered wagons from McNairy County, Tennessee to a new land in Goforth, Hays County, Texas. The area was overpopulated with pioneers and the land and crops soon were non-existent. My Grandmother Allen told of near starving families and hard times. The J T Goforths, daughter Sally and family, the Hornes (another daughter Maggies family) and a son, Morries Hamm, plus GRANDPA AND GRANDMA Hamm, moved to the Bishop and Corpus Christi area to farm. Most of the family stayed there and the Allen and Hamm family descendants travelled to the area for much loved visits and "fish frys".

Malissa married James Buchanan HAMM, son of James Jefferson HAMM and Malinda SPRINGER, on 11 Dec 1880 in McNairy County, Tennessee. James was born on 8 Jun 1856 in McNairy County, Tennessee. He died on 3 Nov 1927 in Bishop, Nueces County, Texas and was buried on 6 Nov 1927 in Martin Cemetery, Hays County, Texas.

James & Shirley Webb visited his grave in the Martin Cemetery on February 24, 1995.
