States: Georgia: Oglethorpe
I am seeking information on the children of HENRY WARD and CHARITY SANDERS who married Dec. 24, 1775 in Surry County, North Carolina. Iím told Henry and Charity left North Carolina after 1787 and moved to Georgia. Henry died before the 1800 Oglethorpe County, Georgia, census because Charity was named head of the household on that census. Charity was born Apr. 5, 1760 (the daughter of JAMES SANDERS, Sr., and SARA TULLY) and died after 1850, the last time she appeared in the Georgia census.
The only known child of Henry and Charity is Nancy Ward who was born ca 1786 and married Charles Sims after 1820 as his second wife. They moved to Madison County, Georgia where in 1850 Nancy is 64 and the head of the household. Charles left a Will in Madison County, Georgia, dated July 4, 1832, and was probated Nov. 5, 1832.
The 1800 Oglethorpe County, Georgia census of Charityís household shows there were seven children in the household: 1 male, age 0-10; 1 male, age 10-16; 1 male, age 16-26; 2 females, age 0-10; 2 females, age 16-26; and Charity, shown in the 26-45 age bracket. Since there were 3 children in the 0-10 bracket, and allowing two years between children, it is assumed that Henry must have lived at least until about 1796 before he died. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE NAMES OF ANY OF THESE OTHER CHILDREN OF HENRY AND CHARITY WARD. Thanks! WHW
