Re: Please help me, Wards. Ward-Chiles (not Word)??
I've been told that Word and Ward were interchangeable in early records but cannot proof that. I have my John S Ward married to Frances Collins but have seen that John Word was married to Frances Collins so I am also confused. My John S Ward was born about 1768 and came from Pitt Co NC. I have that he was married 3 times, Frances being the second wife and supposely the mother of my g-g-grandmother Martha Ward who was married to Lewis Patterson in 1828.
