Bryant Ward & Nancy (Nanye'Hi) Ward (Ghi-gau)

Updated July 5, 2010

About Our Family Research


I am a descendant of the CHEROKEE WARD FAMILY of Indian Territory. Many of the descendants of JOHN and KATY McDANIEL WARD emigrated to the Cherokee Nation West in 1834. Many descendants were successful in government, law, agriculture and education. To name a few, Admiral Joseph James Clark of WW2, Nancy Eaton, educator and historian, William Wirt Hastings, educator and Representative from Oklahoma, and Judge JOE WARD of Delaware District, I.T.
BRYANT WARD, father of John came from Ireland. He served in the British Army during the colonial wars. BRYANT WARD was also married to NANCY WARD, (GHI-GAU). He was a trader among the Cherokee. His son JOHN WARD came to America and married into the CHEROKEE NATION and had a large family after his marriage to CATHERINE McDANIEL. CATHERINE or KATY was the daughter of "GRANNY HOPPER" a Cherokee.

John and Catherine had the following children:

James Ward, born Jan. 26, 1783, died May 16, 1859. Buried at Blagg-Duckworth Cemetery, Siloam Springs, Arkansas. He married Lucy Haynie and Sarah Sidney Redding.
Elizabeth Ward, born, 1790. Married Elijah Sutton and John Cox.
Samuel Ward, born 1788, died Oct. 1834. Married Sallie Earwood and Ester Davis.
Bryant Ward, born 1796, married Temperance Stansel. Both buried at Sulphur Bend Cemetery, Ottowa County, Oklahoma.
Charles Jackson Ward, born 1798, died Ca. 1862. Married Nannie Cross, Ruth Hollingsworth and Mary Elvira Henslee.
Nannie Ward, born 1794, married Stephen Carroll and Thomas Monroe.
Susie Ward, born 1792, married William England.
George Ward born 1787, died 1863. Married Lucy Mayes both buried at Joe Ward Cemetery, near Jay, Oklahoma.

Charles Jackson Ward

In a book "The River Trail, A Saga of the Cherokee Removal" by Jane B. Noble, the written journal of Lt. Harris gives a day by day account of the movement of a group of Cherokees to Indian Territory arriving in May 1834. This group includes Bryant Ward, Polly E. Ward (Mary Elvira), Ruth Hollingsworth Ward, Susie Ward England, Samuel Ward and Charles J. Ward. At some point in time Charles J. Ward returned east to N. Carolina and Georgia. The family of Charles J. Ward and Polly appear on the Chapman Roll of 1851, near Murphy, N. Carolina. Charles J. ward and family No. 1390-1396.

Charles Rufas Ward was born at Murphy N. Carolina. He enlisted in the U.S. Army at Cleveland, Tennessee during the Civil War. He served in the 5th Tenn. Mtd, Infantry, was wounded at Spring Place, Georgia in Oct. 1864. After his mustering out at Nashville in 1865 he went to Maury County, Tennessee.

  • Dan Tittle Murder (1 KB)
    Dan Tittle was evidently killed by a relative of his wife Rosanna Ward. Dan and Bob were some fellows you did not want to cross. I have copies from the original Ft. Smith Criminal files located at the Southwest Region of the National Archives here in Ft. Worth. This file contains warrants and testimony from several cases. It looks like Dan and Bob Tittle were involved with several killings in their life time. Dan was said to be a hot tempered individual.
