I am looking for my ancestors and I have come to a dead end. I need your help!! I am looking for a family by the name of WARD who lived in Maury County in the early 1800's. My ancestor Preston Ward was born in Tennessee on March 17, 1807. He married there, but all I know of his wife is she was named Ellender and was born in South Carolina. I believe that Preston's mothers name was Nancy. Preston and Ellender did have children born in Tennessee before they went to Old Tishomingo, Mississippi.Around 1850 they moved to Dallas, Polk County, Arkansas where he ran a boarding house. I am descended from his daughter Mahala who married William C. Joping and after his death Robert Suits. If you have information concerning this family I would sure appreciate your help.
Thanks in advance.
