Stuart was born at Berlin, Vermont, July 28, 1820, went to New York in 1840, and devoted himself to literary pursuits. For a time he was a Universalist preacher. He was co-editor of the NEW YORK SUN, 1843-53, and established the NEW YORKER, was for a time connected with the NEW YORK MIRROR. He died at Northampton, Mass., in February, 1862." - Stockbridge, A Catalogue of the Harris Collection of American Poetry, p. 274. Allibone, p. 2291.
