Hello, Cousin Nelda,

My records show that Elisha Ward was the son of Elisha and Jane Washington Neeland Ward. Elizabeth Meeksí parents were Mark and Ann Chambers Meeks.

The information I have on Elisha Ward Sr. is that he was born 21 Feb 1773 in Halifax County, NC, and died 05 AUG 1838 in Union Parish, LA. Jane Washington Neeland Ward was born 15 OCT 1784 in South Carolina. She died after 1850 in Union Parish, LA.

Mark Meeks was born 12 JUL 1795 in Pendleton District, SC, and he died 07 MAR 1891 in Chilicothe, Hardeman, CO, TX. Ann Chambers Meeks was born around 1798. She died before 1858. Markís parents were Littleton and Elizabeth Ivey Meeks, and Annís parents were John and Elizabeth Jane McConnell Chambers. Mark and Ann were married in 1817 in Franklin County, Georgia (now Banks County). After Annís death, Mark married Sarah Ann Fullerton Cobb Cohen.

FYI, I am descended from Markís brother, Jesse.

I hope this helps. Good luck in your search, and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Bob Meeks
Carthage, MO
