Captain HENRY JAMES WARD PIONEER FAMILY


1. Captain HENRY JAMES WARD was born 25 Dec 1777 in London, England. He died 30 Nov 1880 at Pillar Point, Town of Brownville and was buried at Sackets Harbor Lakeside Cemetery, Town of Hounsfield. His obituary states that he had 14 children, only three of whom outlived him. I know that Elizabeth and Guy Rickerson had at least three children (John, Harry & William Rickerson). I'm guessing these are included in the count of 14. I am only aware of 2 children born to Henry and Elizabeth Ward. I would love to find out the names of the others!
