David Ward

David Ward was born September 25, 1855, in Johnson County, Kentucky1.  David and his younger brother James are found living with their grandparents in Johnson County, Kentucky on the 1860 census2.  In 1870 David and James are living with their father, George W., their grandmother, Lucinda, and probably a cousin, Lucinda Gillum in Toms Creek, Johnson County, Kentucky3.  In 1880 David is found single, working as a laborer, living as a boarder in Louisa, Kentucky4.

I can only imagine what the next 20 years had in store for David.  I found him next as a widower with his 3 young children living in Louisa, Kentucky5.

  1. Elizabeth “Lizzie” Ward was born in October 1890 in Kentucky5.
  2. Vessie P Ward was born in June 1893 in Kentucky5.
  3. George A Ward was born in November 1895 in Kentucky5.

Unfortunately I have not been able to locate David or any of his children after the 1900 census.
