Fred, I think this is my line. Both Ward and Julius are in my line, though I am not familiar with Samuel and Rebecca.
My data shows that Julius was born in 1871 or 1872 (he is listed as 8 yrs old on the 1880 census). Ward is listed as 4, so that date sounds correct.
Julius and Ward are sons of Roscoe Joseph Staples and Sarah Jane Davidson, both of whom are buried in the Staples family cemetery in Oasis Township, Wild Rose, Waushara County WI.I also have information on Roscoe's ancestors.
I am descended from Julius and Ward's younger brother Herbert Roscoe Staples.
Feel free to contact me for more info on their siblings and ancestors.
