      All marriages were in Louisa Co. and no children found on record. John Ward was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and served at Yorktown (his age data was obtained from Pension record). In 1850, his wife Nancy (age 80) was living with Wm & Betsy Foster in Louisa and her death from old age (83) was reported on 14 Jun. 1854 by her nephew Albert G. Hencey (Hinchey?). John Ward left all his property at the death of his wife to Patrick H. Hinchey (no relationship given) and to Elizabeth Ryan, dau. of Thomas Ryan. (WB 10 p.136)
