About Aileen E. Stewart:

Stewart was not Aileen's birth surname, She was adopted by the Stewarts at a young age. Her birth surname could have been Fleming (unverified).

The Stewarts were living in Leesville, LA at the time of the 1920 Census. Aileen was not shown living with the couple at that time. Aileen was apparently adopted betwen 1920 and 1930.
