John/Kezia Ward/in Bosque 1880-1900

John and Kezia Ward are found from 1880-1900 in Bosque Co., Texas.
Ward, John w m 52 farming Al Ga Ga
Kezia w f 46 wife Al Ga Ga
Wm F.w m 19 nephew farming Ark Al Al
Green,Thos.F.w m 20 " " Ark Al Al

next door is:
Ward, G T W w m 25 farming Ark Al Al
Mary Ew f 20 wife Miss Miss Miss
Walter w m 1 son Tx Ark Miss

I believed that GTW (which is George Thomas Washington Ward) was the son of John and Kizia.

But, on the 1900 census we find:

Ward, John Head w m may 1830 70 m 50 Al Al Al
Kezia Wife w f mch 1834 66 m 50 0 0 Al Al Al

They are still living next door to GTW Ward... but, note that Kezia and John have been married for 50
years... but she has had no children. Although I'm quite used to errors in the census (I don't think I've
ever found anyone who was consistantly 10 years older in the next census!)... you'll note she's AL AL AL
in 1900, and was AL GA GA in 1880. Since the nephews that were living in their household in 1880 were
born in AR, as was GTW, I'm thinking that John and Kezia were probably GTW's uncle and aunt, also,
and that they possibly had moved to Bosque Co. from AR sometime before 1880.

Has anyone heard of these folks? Does anyone have access to the complete ARK census index, and could
possibly lookup John Ward (with wife Kezia) in 1850 and 1860, to see if they were in AR, with any

Please write me directly at, and post to the forum.

Thanks, barbara
