I have all the information for Richard Rhodes Ward, as he is my great grandfather, but I don't have too much about his father Jacob A. Ward.I have information that he was born 1825 in North Carolina, and died in Limestone Co., TX but don't what year. The other children were Elizabeth b. 1852, John b. 1856, Thomas b. 1858, William b. 1860, Jacob Jr. b. 1862, Billy or Bolly? b. 1864, Martha b. 1866, Mary b. 1868. These were all born in Milam Co., Texas. I didn't know the maiden name of Mary. I see that you show it as Smith. Are you related some how?
