I have a MICHAEL WARD br 1812 in TN. I have a marriage license between him & Matilda Pierce in 1832 in Hempstead Co., Arkansas. I am told he was Indian, not sure about Matilda=she came from MO.If anyone recognizes these please let meknow because I am at a dead end. If he was an Indian I am trying to find out what his Indian name was before he took Michael Ward. Any infor would be appreciated. I am willing to share. Also interested in Edward Ebling, he had 3 or 4 daughters that married the Ward boys. Thanks in advance. Sandra Ward Purtle in Arkanas
