I was wondering if your Wards or Stephens' might be any relation to mine?Roswell WARD (b. 1790 in Mass. & d. 4 Jan 1867 at Conneaut, Ashtabula, OH) and his wife Lucy (maiden name possibly MALLORY?, she died abt 11 Oct 1867 at Conneaut). Their son, Alfred F. WARD, married 17 Jan 1850 in Ashtabula to Abigail L. PLUMB.Abigail was born in New York abt 1831, daughter of Miles D. PLUMB & Harriet STEPHENS.Miles died 22 Apr 1872 and Harriet died 2 Mar 1885, both at La Salle, Monroe Co., Mich.I don't have the dates/locations of the deaths of Alfred or Abigail (Plumb) Ward but their daughter, Catherine Ward, b. 4 Jun 1852 at Conneaut, is my ancestor.
If you are researching any of these same families or have come across them before I would love to hear from you. Thanks.firstname.lastname@example.org
