Notes for David Ward:
Note by Sue Mickley on 12/31/2006:Lois does not show up in any Ancestry.com file as the daughter of David Ward.It is very possible that between David WARD b 1680 and David Ward b. bef. 1632 there was another David WARD that was born abt. 1706 in Newark, NJ.He was possibly the father of Lois, Moses, Ezekiel and Phebe or just the father of David and Lois.The other possibility is that David b 1680 was the father of all the children beginning with David, b. 1706 up to Phebe b 6 Oct 1731.That may explain why Lois was not identified on Ancestry.com as a child of David WARD b 1680 because a gap in years with no children from 1706-1728 could have been a product of a will or tax record that did not count children who had already married and left the household.Fitting Lois into this family is pure conjecture but a lot of facts support it with the unusual names of Lois' children matching her parents and brothers and sisters (Mary, David, Moses, Phebe).I favor the idea that there is another David Ward confusing the records that needs to be flushed out with the appropriate children attached to him.David (b. abt 1706) would have been about 17 when he had Lois as a daughter so I am going to keep her under David b. 1680 and remember that she could have actually been sister to David (b. abt. 1706 or his daughter).Another supporting clue that there was another David Ward is that there are 2 listing for David as a son of David and Mary Brown, one as David b. abt 1706 and the other as David b. bef. 1732.David (b. abt. 1706) could have well been the father of Moses, Ezekiel, Phebe who have been grouped together as siblings of David (b. bef. 1732) in some of the Ancestry records.Obviuosly this whole line needs to be further researched and documented to sort it out.If the David Ward b. 1706 is an entirely different person he may have married a descendent of the TITUS family and her name may have been Phebe as the name William TITUS is given to Lois' grandchildren.Again, this needs further research .
One key to place Lois Ward as the daughter of David and Mary is that Lois and William name their first child Mary, possibly after Mary Brown WARD and subsequent children were named Jonathan (after William HAND's father), Phebe (source unknown), David (after Lois' father), Martha (source unknown but may have been the nickname of William HAND's mother who was Margaret), Moses (a possible brother or uncle of Lois), and Aaron Milton (source unknown).
Several grandchildren and ggrandchildren of Lois show up with names that may give possible clues:Daniel, Nathaniel, Watson, William Titus, Charles S., Edward S., and Gilbert.
