Hi Brenda,

I have an Edward Oscar Ward in my database. He was born about 1844
according to the 1850 Census for Dundaff Township, Susquehanna County, PA. Possibly
he migrated to Wayne County when he became of age. He had siblings, Stephen
and Mary Elizabeth. His parents were Moses Ward and Mary Jane Day. This
could be a VERY long shot.

I am researching and hit my brick wall with Edward WARD. He was born in
Cherry Ridge and was raised in Texas Township in Wayne County. He was born
around 1876 in Cherry Ridge. He married Maud Jessie ALBERTY in 1901. I have
found a record of that. They together owned property located at Carley Brook
Rd. in the township of Oregon, Wayne Cty, PA. I have deed abstracts. It is
my belief that Edward may have been raised in the household of Thomas HERD.
He appears on the 1880 census with Thomas and his family and is listed as the
grandson. In 1900 he is listed by himself but still in Texas Township. I
cannot locate a death date for him and search records have been futile. In
1944 he was still living in Oregon and in 1949 when his daughter passed away he
is not surviving. I tried to do a search for these years in between but no
hits. On the marriage record, dated 1901 It states that consent of parent or
guardian of minor was Edward Ward, father. The Edward I am seekin!
g was 25 years old at the time he was married and his wife Maude was 28. I
cannot find either Edward. Any ideas or help of any nature is greatly
appreciated. I was in Wayne County several times in the last 2 years but live in
NY so I cannot do another trip until spring. Thanks again...Brenda
