That would be Great!! I have just recently found two cousins also. They are Bessies daughters children. My dad was one of Bessies sons. I do have at least one thing written by James Ward. I could e-mail you a copy of that. Any information or pictures that you could send would be just great! We have found quite a bit of things on Bessie but her husband is a mystery man, we have his name and his parents names, but that is about it. I will look thru what I have and see if I can find more about James Ward. I remember meeting him when I was a little girl.
This is what I have on Wards:
The original William A Ward came to America in 1770 from Ireland and settled in the Shenandoah Valley of VIrginia
William A. of the second generation is believed to have lived in Ohio
William A. of the third generation married Susan Cornell, a scott.
Mary and William had one son, James Benton, he married Eliza Boley and they had one son, Wendall.
Wendall Ward married Marion Mechling and had two sons, Robert Lewis and Jimmy (deceased)
After Elizas death James married Lucy Kelly. Ward died on April 11, 1887

I will also send you a copy of what James Ward wrote about the Ward/Wigner families, it's both funny and confusing

Thanks in advance
