Hi,

To start you off, you can look on the familysearch site - they have good records for BC.

The Royal BC Museum site has lots of images of the records too...

Looks like James Sneddon Stewart married Catherine MacVie in Vancouver on 16 Nov 1918.  He died in Vancouver on 17 Dec 1969. 

Alexander Houston Stewart married Ethel May Sayer in Vancouver on 1 July 1918.  He died in Vancouver on 25 January 1969 .

Jeanie Prentice Stewart married David Murray.  She died 6 March 1966 in Vancouver (death record under her maiden name).

The other 2 kids:

Malcolm junior married Flora Montgomery.  He died in Vancouver on Feb 1 1968.

Annie Stewart married Alexander Leslie Kelly in Vancouver on 29 April 1915.  She died in Vancouver on 20 December 1958.

Burial places, informants and lots of other useful information can be found on the certificates... see the Royal BC Museum site. 

Hopefully these death dates can lead to obituaries... and then you can find descendents.   Birth records for Malcolm and Mary's grandchildren would be protected by privacy laws.  Newspaper announcements, city directories, etc are your best bet.
