Family notes:
• Narcissa has been identified as a neice of Dr. William Eldred Ward, of Belmont College, Nashville, TN. This is not likely since she was born in 1822 and he was born in 12/21/1829. However, it is likey that they were cousins, since he was the eldest of 6 children from a cotton planter near Huntsville, AL. Dr. Ward was the grandson of an Irishman who had emigrated from Dublin to settle in Savannah, GA. In 1847, Dr. Ward, then 18, left home for Lebanon College; the same year his family moved to TX. In 1859, he married Eliza A Hudson.
• 1850 Mortality index for Lowndes Co: Lunceh Ward – age 37 and married, born in GA, COD “Scarlet Fever”. 1850 Mortality index for Lowndes Co: Robert Ward – age 14 born in MS, COD “Scarlet Fever”.
