Wesley married a second time on 7 Mar 1906 to Isabella Laird.  According to the 1906 census record, she had immigrated from Ireland to Canada in 1900.  Their son Harold Wesley Stewart was born 29 Jun 1907, in Brandon.  In 1916, they were still in Brandon.  Wesley was a carpenter, and listed as Methodist.  Isabella and their son were listed as Presbyterian.
