Wrong info is being passed around and copied on trees (lots) online. It is giving Mathias Ward's father as Thomas (correct)name documented in a deed. BUT the wife of Thomas Ward (Elizabeth Foster) everyone is copying is not a documented wife of Mathias Ward's father Thomas. Everyone and their uncle is copying this as a fact when there is no documentation as such. Thomas Ward, Mathias' father was from Ireland, and this Foster lady is from England. Common sense, it isn't a wife of Thomas Ward of Ireland..
Elizabeth Foster (Info taken from a tree online) Birth 1747 in North Marston, Buckinghamshire, England Death Living Death 1763 in North Carolina USA.
