Since document 11-95 originated in 1884, I started looking for some of the involved persons in the 1880 Census (and found them twice!):

[Alice's unusual surname helped identify the Stewarts, as did the name "Smith Stewart", and the TN birthplace, as well as the other pieces fitting together -- except for "Susan Smith" -- was she the same person as Margaret, wife of Samuel Smith, per the Will in 11-95, and assuming "Ada" Stewart is "Elizabeth" Stewart, per the Will.]
Where was Samuel Smith in 1880? Was he already dead and Document #11-95, dated in 1884, was part of the estate settlement in Franklin Co., TN, not when the Will was made? I didn't extract enough information to make that determination.
Death records were found for both Alphonso Stewart and his wife, Elizabeth (Smith) Stewart, through the Missouri Secretary of State's online death records.
Elizabeth (Smith) Stewart's parents are listed as Samuel Smith (b. TN) and Margaret E. Carr (b. VA) on her death record. She is buried in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis, MO.
Alphonso Stewart's parents are listed as Alexander P. Stewart (b. TN) and Unk. Chase (b. CT) on his death record. He is buried in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis, MO.
