William M. Ward born 1874 - Pitt Co. NC

My Great Grandfather William M. Ward b. 1874 in Edgecombe Co. North Carolina, then settled in Pitt County North Carolina when he was married to Lizzie(Eliza) (Lizzie's maiden name was Wilson) b. 1877 in Chicod(Pitt Co.). William's father was Wilson Ward married to Martha. I have been trying to locate this family in the 1880 Census, but to no avail I can not find them. That particular Census would give me not only Wilson, and Martha's year of birth, but any siblings that William may have. The only other person that I found connected somehow to this family was found after Lizzie died around 1912 or 1913, William remarried on May 25, 1916, and a man by the name of Elisha Ward was a witness at the Wedding. The Marriage certificate did not state who Elisha Ward was, but I did search for him too although I did not have a birth year for him. The search turned up nothing. The Ward's live in and around Greenville, North Carolina. This is where my Grandfather William Ward Jr. raised his family. He had 18 children, only 10 lived to adulthood. He married my Grandmother Addie Fleming Ward in 1932. There children include Alice Lee, William III, Annie Mae, Claretha, Jolinda, Maggie, Doris, Curtis, Gerald and Debbra Ann.I would appreciate any help you can give me to continue on with my Family Tree.
