The census taker made a mistake. The “Joel” V. Ward in the 1860 census is actually Joseph V. Ward, son of William & Deborah. If you look at the 1870 census for Joseph you will see the same family members, minus Deborah.

William Ward’s first wife was Elizabeth Harvey whom he married about 1810. They had two sons, Samuel and John. In the 1820 census for Ross Co., OH it’s just William and the two boys. William married Deborah Browning soon after that census and they had Elias, Ruth Ann, Hester Ann, Susan, Henry/Harry, Joseph V., and Benjamin. William and Deborah apparently divorced in Ohio and on December 8, 1843 in Jefferson Co IL he married MARGARET Ingram. William and Margaret are in the 1850 census for Jefferson Co IL. William died June 6, 1852. He and Margaret had no children together. I never found him with a Martha.               

Edward married Martha “Patsy” Browning, probably in Ohio. He died 1825-1830 and she and the children stayed in Ohio and are found in the 1830 and 1840 census under Martha’s name. In the 1850 census she was living alone in Lawrence Co., OH.
