I'm a Ward researcher, John Ward, War of 1812 (TN Militia) and wife Sarah b 1796 Tn. move from TN to Mo, in 1830's. John dies ??, Sarah is found in 1850 Cedar Mo. with her family. Alexander is son b Tn. and Tilman abt 1828 TN.Tilman is not a common name, so am wondering if there is a Tilman surname connection to the Ward line.Grateful for any clues. Viola in CA.
