Re: Longtown Connection
In Response To: Re: Longtown Connection ()
Sorry it took so long to respond, had to take time out for "real life". I really don't have much more that what you already have but here it is...
Nathan WARD, born about 1797 in North Carolina evidently was married before his marriage to Catherine and had at least three children...
Jane WARD, born about 1825 in Northa Carolina
With nothing to define relationships it is possible that he was not married and that these are not his children but family members living with him. However that would mean that when he did marry he was 51 years of age, so not likely.
Nathan married Catherine "Maiden name not known" BOLDEN, 09-18-1848 in Wayne County, Indiana. Evidently Catherine was married to "First name not known" BOLDEN and had at least the following children...
Lucy A. BOLDEN born about 1837 in Ohio
She married Nathan WARD and had at least these children...
Isaac M. WARD born about 1849 in Indiana
Isaac M. Ward married Sarah U. LADD, 01-28-1869, in Randolph County, Indiana by A. J. HAWLEY.
Isaac is listed at least once in a census record as Isaac M. BOLDEN. Enumerators were wont to do that in census records (list all children under one name).
Generally speaking there are groups of WARDs in Clinton County, Ohio and in the Weaver Settlement, Grant County, Ohio as well as the two settlements in Randolph County, Indiana.
Collateral/Allied names are LADD, OUTLAND, HORNADAY, ROBERTS, STOKES, STAFFORD, STEWART
