I am looking for the family of Sorina (or Sarina) Celinor Ward/Hoff, b.abt 1860. She is listed in the 1910 Roane County WV. census as being originally from Ohio. She married William A. Hoff and was the mother of my grandmother, Cleora(or Chlora)Hoff/Williamson/Romine. Other children, Adah, Bessie and Holly Hoff. I have no idea who her parents were or what county in Ohio she was originally from. She may be related to the family of O.Raymond Ward and Lena Ward from Bath, Ohio. Any links you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Anita Romine-Graber

Hi,
I am one of six children, my middle name is Ward (Thomas ward Hanley) because that was my grandmother's last name (maiden). Three of my brother's middle names are Ward. My grandmother Grace Ward (Married name Hanley)she had two sisters, Irene Ward, Rose Ward (married name Hennessy) and they had a brother George Ward, that is who I am trying to find out what happened to him, no one seems to know, (I heard a rumor he may have been a cop) As far as I know they all lived in the NEW York City area. Grace Ward married Thomas Hanley and had one son, James Ward Hanley, he's my father.

Hi,
I am a Ward, descended from Patrick Ward from Corleygorm, Co. Monaghan. I myself am from Dublin, Ireland and have family history on the Ward side going back to my greatx3 Grandfather Constantine Ward who was born c1802. There has been talk of some of the family having moved to America in the 1870's/80s? Their names are Mary Ward who married a Patrick Furlong and together they moved to the US. If anyone thinks they may have a connection, feel free to contact me!
I had no idea there were so many Wards outside of Ireland! ;)

[CORRECTION] My Ward family starts in Virginia. My Great Great grandfather was George Ward. His 1st wife was Nancy Ward and his 2nd wife was Charlotte Brooks from Indiana. My Great grandfather William Ward was born in the Territory of New Mexico known as Nueva Espania. My Grandfather was born in the territory also. Later they moved to Huerfano County Colorado. I vaguely recall my aunt writing to her cousin in Kansas.

His father was a Charles Ward and mother Dorothy (last name might be Berry). We don't have clues to anything further back - I have just begun working on this. Any clues helpful.

Good work. I'll tell you what I know so far. Our line of Ward's (catholic) came out of Meath Ireland around 1836. Seems two brothers and maybe more came over. One settled in London Township Middlesex County Concession 1 Lot 24 in 1836. The other brother(I think) went to Ohio. I can't get past 1836, but there is possibly a link. Who knows? If any of this sounds at all familiar, let me know.

The family I am helping research is the RECTOR family from Virginia--they settled there in 1714. Actually, I am not related, but my cousin is!
Her grandmother was Martha Ellen Rector who was born in 1861. Martha Rector (born in 1861 in Delaware County, Indiana) was the daughter of Samuel Garver Rector, son of Daniel Rector and Nancy Garver. Martha eloped when she was 17 years old, so is not frequently found on census records. We KNOW Samuel Garver Rector married Mary Griffith Branson in 1840. We believe he had two more marriages, but are unable to document them. The last marriage was to Isabel (Reavis, James) Rector. Isabel's death certificate is on line at the Secretary of State's office in Jefferson City. She is buried in Dillon Cemetery in Maries County, MO. We do not know where Samuel Garver Rector is buried. Any help you can give us will be appreciaed.

Great site! My paternal grandparents divorced, bitterly, about 1901 in southern Kansas.

They didn't and that name is virtually my sole clue other than I think the family came westfrom Tennessee.
Thanks for being here,

I have a huge tome, currently buried in storage while my house is rebuilt, that traces my branch of the Ward family from England to Connecticut (via Andrew Ward) in 1630, through my generation, born in the 1950s. I don't have the details here, unfortunately, but there were several David Wards, including my 1st cousin, my grandfather, a great-great who, born in Keene Valley, NY in the early mid-19th century, went on to make his fortune in timber and surveying in the area where Chicago eventually was built, and his great(?)-grandfather, who was first heard of as a 16 yr-old boy fleeing with his family from what became Vermont ahead of Burgoyne and his native allies. The surveyor wrote and privately published his autobiography, which was remarkable both for its stories of his childhood (including one in which his father, also a surveyor, chained him to a tree for 3 days while working deep in the woods near Keene Valley), and for its vituperative attacks on his relatives.

Hi Folks,

This was very much a random google.Anyhow as far as my limited knowledge goes (in terms of Irish Gaelic) Ward the surname is an anglocised (pardon my spelling pretty sure that's incorrect) version of Nic an Bhaird /Mac an Bhaird which means daughther of /son of the Baird (Baird) the person in the clan who played the harp/told stories etc...,the general entertainer.It was an extremely priviledged position to be in.I would love to hear from more Wards out there,

Kind Regards,
Marcia Ward

My Charles Nicholas Ward was supposedly born in OH, 18 Oct, 1870, per my grandmother's written notes.
I have found NO record of him before the 1900 census in Doniphan Co, KS. In 1906 he married my grandmother in Jasper Co, MO, & by 1915 was back living in Doniphan Co, KS. He died in 1939 there. IF any of this you are famililar with, please advise..

William Thomas married Catherine Jane Moore, whom I believe is linked to your tree. I have been trying to find more info on the Conner line, but can't get beyond Thomas Conner, Williams father. Can you help? Many Thanks Patricia

My family of Ward, starting that I know of,from gggrandpa John Ward from Ohio dob unknown, married ? from Indiana had my ggrandpa Thomas Ward dob circa 1826,1836, Tippecanoe Indiana, also had sister named Lottie Ward Howland have picture from San Francisco maybe graduation, could be other brothers and ssters.By oral info, family moved to California the early gold rush days maybe 1850's. Found My Thomas Ward in the 1870's of Placer county of Cal.as a Teamster and that would explain his ob info of him crossing the plains 7 times. Eventually Thomas came by wagon train through Oregon to Washington state where he married a widow named Carrie Scoggin Pflug about 1870,and homesteaded on Scoggin's ridge. Then had my grandfather named Fredrick Earnest Ward,then my father Fredric Thomas,in Pomeroy Washington. Let me know if any thing sounds familiar.

Is there a link or are we related? Since 1940's or before, my grandmother traced back the Ward family tree. She was Viola Black Joyce from Waukegan, Illinois. She lived in Genoa, Wis and her family migrated from St. Louis, Mo. Her genealogical chart has a Charles, Dwight, Daniel, daughter Nellie Viola Ward as listed. The family goes back to Ireland. My grandmother wrote and corresponded with a distant cousin from Nebraska, possibly from Lancaster County; her name was or is, Charlotte. Are we possibly related?

Andrew was born in 1860, had a sister, Sarah A., and a brother John. His mother had remarried. His mother's name was M. Emily. Does any of this ring a bell? There may have been more children before Andrew who had left home. M. Emily was born in 1837 in Ohio. Thanks for your web page. Ginger

I'm searching for a Ward Family, who the father was
born in Virginia, I'm sorry but I don't have his
first name. He is my husbands Great-Grandfather, he
and his wife moved from Virginia to Ohio, and my
husbands Grandfather was born in Ohio in 1879, his
name is Omie Joseph Phillip Ward. He went by Omie
J or Jack. Omie moved to CAlifornia and married
Mary M Keller in 1900 in 1901 there first son
George Carlin Ward was born. The second son named
after the father Omie died sometime shortly after
birth. I was wondering if they could be related
to your Ward family.

Hi,
I'm researching my Shoemaker family history. I was excited to find Shoemaker in the list of related families in the RootsWeb Review today. I haven't yet looked over your site, but will very shortly. My Shoemakers are from Ohio as well and I'm hoping perhaps you have some tidbit that might help me out. My Shoemaker is John born ca 1802 in Ohio. Family lore is that the ancestors came from Pennsylvania. I am currently investigating the Henry and Jacob Shoemakers in Ohio that came from Lehigh County in PA. It seems that they were some of the earliest Shoemakers in Ohio and if my John was born in Ohio in 1802 I feel like there must be some connection there somewhere. Thank you for your posting on RootsWeb Review and allwing this space for comments. Karen.

Does anyone have any info on him or his parents. Since there is no listing of a county in NY it is almost impossible to find out what county is was born in. Hopefully, someone will be able to give me a clue. Thank you so much.

I am a great-great-great grandson of Franklin Allen Seaman (who Seaman OH) is named for) and probably know as much as anyone on the family history. Franklin's eldest son, John William "Will" Seaman, my great-great grandfather left in the fall of 1862 for IL. Go to http://usgenweb.com, click on IL, then Coles County, then biographies. I've listed my Seaman and Ellison genealogy there.

Just checking out your site. Our Ward family came in 1600's starting with William and Elizabeth and about 12 or 13 children. Our one line moved from MA to New York to Wisconsin on to Washington down through Oregon and into CA. Contact me if you need information. I found the greatest book in Provo, Utah at the BYU library on the entire Ward family. That is how I found my link. I couldn't find it any other way.

Just started digging on my Ward line..
ggggm was RACHEL R. Ward, b.1796 Westmoreland, PA. She was married to Frederick William Wheeler of Ravenna, OH.

Believe Rachel's parents were John Ward of Westmoreland, PA and Agnes Dunfield/Duffield. Family moved to Rootstown, OH before 1804. From History of Portage County, the following was found....A widely known character of early Rootstown was "Mother" Ward (Agnes Ward). She was a large and muscular woman of great energy and endurance, well able to do a man's work at chopping, logging and taking long journeys afoot. She is said to have come from Pennsylvania, having left a husband there, and lived alone near present Crystal Lake which was long known as Mother Ward's Pond on her account. Her maiden name was said to have been Dunfield and her first husband was killed by Indians. She had a son, John, who built a frame house for Benjamin Tappan. But he got into trouble and was tried for wife murder. "Mother Ward" is said to have made annual trips back home to Pennsylvania, going barefoot. She was supposed to have been a native of Ireland. Believe other children born were Annie Ward who married Moses Bradford, Dorthea Ward, and Sebra D. Ward.

Digging for any additional information on the Ward/Wheeler families.

I saw your posting on the message board. I am also a Shoemaker researcher. My ggggrandfather was John Shoemaker. 1850 census reports his birth ca 1801-03 in Ohio. He married 1830 in Montgomery County IN to Elizabeth Dewitt/Dewett. Searching for his parents and siblings. Family lore says that his father came here from Germany and lived in PA. If you turn up a John S. from Ohio to IN to IL I would be grateful if you would pass along the info to me. Thank you.

Don't know if we have a connection - just some "coincidences" that made me curious. My earliest Ward is Moses M. Ward, b. abt. 1817, d. 1893. He and his wife, Matilda Moore,had at least 9 children, among them a
Mahlo(a)n, a Mary Jane, and an Emmaline - who had a twin, Evaline. I believe that they lived in Ohio for a while, but don't know where they were born.

Never knowing where incidental leads and information might take one, I noted your work and remembered some potential connections or branches in Bellaire (Belmont County) OH. There were some families there that may be of interest. The Ward and the Stewart families were involved in the wholesale food business in the 1940s/50s and perhaps before and later. I think that one of the Ward women married a Stewart, and they had two children, Ward Stewart (it's obvious where his name came from) and Ella Stewart. Ella married an attorney (Ed Matz), while Ward married a Hutchinson.

Quite by coincidence, there was also a family (another lawyer) in Bellaire named Cinque (notice the variation in spelling from your Cingue).

Connection? Maybe, maybe not, but my experience has been that every little bit helps.

Good luck.
