Yes, that is what I thought. Think we have gone over all of this before.
This data does not mention our Luke WARD. John is a difficult name to deal with.

I think the John Ward mentioned below is actually a composite of at least
two John Wards. The one that settled in Spartanburg is not the same as the
one that was the grandfather of John Nelson and died in Phillips Co.
Arkansas.


Also, the Bryant Ward mentioned as the nephew of Bryant Ward (one-time
husband of the Cherokee Nancy Ward) in his will of 1815, could not be the
same Bryant Ward that is the son of our John Ward because our Bryant Ward
was born in 1786 making him almost 30 at the time of the elder Bryant Ward's
will, and that will indicates that the nephew was not yet 18.
