I have a Luke Ward in my family, he was the father of Jim B Ward, Jim was born in Tenn 1838 and died 1919. Jim B Ward is buried in Oklahoma. Luke's father was Matthew Ward, he married Esther (unknown). I have only found this family in Tenn and where they lived prior to Tenn is unknown. Since a lot of records were destroyed during the Civil War this family has been diffcult to research.

I have also traced my ancestry to Luke Thomas Ward in Duplin,NC 1730-1796. According our tree his father was Matthew Ward who was born in Bertie,NC. That is as far back in time as we have been able to go back.

DNA Match Ward Subgroup #9 of this line

Does anyone know how a UNK Ward of TN b. abt 1798 with a son named Tom who married a Priscilla/Pernella NC is related to this line? They married either in NC or SC Prob.

MY NOTES BELOW ON THIS FAMILY. FAMILY RUMOR HE IS RELATED TO THE COL. WILLIAM WARD OF GOLIAD WHOSE FATHER WAS A LEONARD FROM GEORGIA. THIS LINE MATCHES THE DNA OF THOMAS WARD OF BERTIE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA.

Tom (unknown really) Ward b. abt 1798 married Pernella......could be Priscilla
Census says Tom Ward was from SC......although it could be NC and a census taker's mistake. I don't know which Thomas/Tom Ward he is related to in TN that goes back to NC..........Too many Thomas/Tom Wards in the NC area.
----------------------
NOTHING ON THIS unknown WARD IS VERIFIED even his name William or Thomas...WORKING NOTES
I have born in South Carolina, but could be North Carolina or Missouri. Census reports have conflicting information in his son's census reports of his father's birth state. Priscilla/Pernella listed in his son Thomas' census could be unknown Ward's wife.

Possible Brother to William Ward of Goliad according to this Ward family - BUT NOT LIKELY, THAT WM WARD WAS FROM GEORGIA, NOT NORTH CAROLINA. I find no link so far.

Macon Georgia Telegraph
~extract Departed this life, at the residence of Peter G. Thompson, in Twiggs County, Georgia, on the 29th December last, Leonard Ward, aged 66 years, from an attack of Apoplexy of nine hours duration!
.......he was the Father of the Chivalric Col. William Ward, who, with defiance on his tongue, in martial attitude, gloriously fell an untimely victim to the base treachery, and inhuman shot of Santa Anna, in the noble defense. of
Texan Liberty!
