I am trying to find out more about my mother's side of the family. her name is Judith Louise Ward. Her parents were Dorothy Ward (nee Glover) and Howard Ward. Both deceased. Gran died of Breast Cancer around 1994 and Gramps died of a heart attack some time in the early 2000s. My grandmother has a huge family and her maiden name was Glover. Any info would be helpful if you know any of my relatives.
I am trying to find my family, My grandparents were Carl and Juanita Ward, they had two sons, Larry Eugene Ward and I believe his brother was named Cotton. He also had a stepbrother named Richard, I have tons of family in Kansas, but the trail stops there unfortunately. I hope someone else can help me proceed!!
Im trying to find information about my great grandmas mother this is what I know.Lula May Rogers(Ward) married Clerence Rogers and had a few children (Willam or Bill) Louise, Jesse, Johnny and Leona May Rogers she married Alvie Griffin and she had alot of children Catherne,Carol Jean,Edith,Marie,Lilly,Leona,Betty,Mary and Daniel.They all lived in Phoenix, Arizona
My grandma remarried and Became Toombs. Leona is Lula mae (Ward) Rogers daughter. She was born in Freirf,Oregon in 1921.Lula was 20 and Clerence was 36 acording to the birth certificate I have.From what I have been told alot of Leonas children were seperated when they were young by the state and maybe even more of them. I dont know if there is any truth to this but Lula was Indain and rumors are that she said she was related to Pocahontas.Any information would be great, Thanks
My mother was placed into the care of Barnados aged 6 months in 1918. She was the illegitimate child of Gertrude Charlotte Ward nee Blanchard. Gertrude was married to Charles Ward and already had three children, George, Dorothy and Nellie and later two more daughters Violet and Gertrude Mary. From Barnados records I have been able to trace my Blanchard family back to William Blanchard and Mary Medd both born in 1832 and have found and met distant Yorkshire cousins with who I share great grandparents[John& Mary Blanchard].This was an exciting discovery for us all and firm friendships have been formed.
I have not been able to discover any firm links with my mothers half-brother and half sisters mentioned above.The family lived in Sharow, Yorks and moved to Wales in the 1920`s I think.if the little I have discovered about them is correct I think they have all died. But maybe out there there is someone who recognises these Blanchard/Ward names and will get in touch.

John "Jack" Ward was a white trader of Scotch-Irish descent often called Trader Jack. John Ward III (John Ward, Jr.) and three of his brothers (Joshua, Daniel and Benjamin) drove cattle to market from Berkeley County, South Carolina to Mobile, Pensacola and New Orleans to sell to the Spanish. On one of these treks they stopped on the Alabama-Georgia border to corral their cattle. John met an Indian maiden, Nancy Elizabeth Knight. Some researchers believe Nancy was the step-daughter of Jackson Night, the blacksmith for the Creek Indians, being a full blood Creek Indian and that her mother was a full blood Indian. Her mother could have been Polly Colbert, daughter of Chief Colbert of the Chicksaw Indians and her first husband, Willian Moniac. According to some, her Indian name was Nahoga or No-Hem.
Jackson Knight lived at Old Ft. Mitchell on the Chattahoochee River just below where Columbus, Georgia now stands. Later, John Ward III, returned to the corral and married Nahoga Moniac (Nancy Elizabeth Knight), about 1775-1777.

U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900
Name: Nahoga Moniac
Gender: Female
Spouse Name: Jack Ward

After 1779 the family moved to Bon Secour, Alabama near Mobile. In 1807, they settled near Pascagoula. Later, in Montgomery Co., Alabama, he was granted land at the top of Mobile Bay. A Spanish grant dated 1803 stated he had lived on the Bon Secour River for 10 years and was the father of a large family. He was a veteran of the American Revolution.
There is a certain deed on the Ward property that proves some of the children born to the couple. Three children, John, Daniel and Ann are proven by the untranslated Catholic records in Mobile (Spanish). Those records also list John's wife as Elizabeth Knight and one of the records is said to list John born in Virginia and Elizabeth born in North Carolina. They, in addition to Benjamin, Patrick, Tarleton, and Henry are proven in the deeds of 1867 involving John M. Ladd. Betty Perkins believes there are 9 additional possible children: Tolbert, Nathan, Jackson, William, Susan, Elizabeth, Polly, Peggy and Dorack.
John "Jack" Ward's Indian war name was White Cloud. He was killed in the Creek Indian War of 1814-1815 leading a band of friendly Creek Indians. The family traveled extensively as he was a fur and cattle trader. They had 14 children, born in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida, according to the Creek tribal office in Whigham, Ga., they have no history on who his parents were or when he came into the states. John "Jack" Ward III was born in Virginia according to his daughter, Nancy Ana Ward's baptismal record found in the Catholic Archives in Mobile, Alabama. William Childress of Virginia was a 1st cousin to John Ward III. The list of names were found in the Mobile Genealogy Library by Hilda Gulili Callaway Dietz when she was researching the Ward Famiy.

William H. Ward was born about 1855, in NY as suggested by a census. He came to Indiana to work as a typesetter about 1872, evidently from out west as a very young man. Married in 1876 to a local girl there in Warsaw, a year later a baby boy was born to them. The mother died @ five months later. William eventually contracted 'consumption', returned to 'better climate' to regain his health in first Minnesota, then Madison, South Dakota (actually Dakota Territory), where he died in 1881 about 26 years old.
His son was my grandfather, orphaned age 4.
Who was William? Where did he come from? Why did he have no past? He is found as an apprentice typesetter in Minnesota, age 16, in the 1870 census, living with the editor, apparently no relation.
I have his photo album. Some were tintypes. No clues to his past, unnamed photos. I also have a letter written back to his mother-in-law, who was caring for his son, in which he expresses hopes to return to IN when better. He was evidently highly respected, as described in the Warsaw paper.
Family stories have it that Great-Grandpa I. L. Ward born in Summers County, West Virginia and was the chief of police in Mabscott (Raleigh County) West Virginia. We believe he died in about 1917 to 1920. He was married to Rettie Gregg who was born in Shulls Mill, North Carolina.

We think they had at least two sons, one of which was Carl Lee "Jack" Ward born 5/16/1907 in Minden, WV and died 2/14/1939 in Mabscott, WV. Carl Ward married Virginia Vaught and these two were my maternal grandparents.

Because Carl Lee Ward went to live with relatives as a child we have no further info into our Ward family history.

Does anyone know anything more about "Chief of Police" I. L. Ward of Mabscott, WV?
