Classification: Query
Surnames: Ward/Cowan
I am looking from the following people:

Jeremiah Ward
born : 10 Jan 1805
place: Virginia or possibly Pennsylvania
died: 26 Feb 1862 (He died at the age of 56)
place: Mechanicsville, Cedar Co., Iowa

NOTE: Jeremiah and his family were apart of the western expansion. His family moved all over the USA: Pennsylvania, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado then Utah. Many people from this line settled in California. Jeremiah was a resident of Pioneer, Cedar Co., Iowa in 1860 where he passed away.

Rachel Cowan
born : 11 Aug 1811
place: Greensburg, Westmoreland, PA
died: 15 July 1907 (She died at the age of 88)
place: Shelby Co., Iowa
buried: Iowa

NOTE: In Rachel's older years, she moved in with her daughter and son-in-law, George Greenfield and Emeline C. (Ward) Greenfield, of Taylor, Shelby Co., Missouri. She was buried in the Dunkard Cemetery, in Iowa or possibly Missouri.


Rachel Ward
George Ward
James Ward
Joseph Ward (Civil War Vet)
Martha Jane Ward
Emeline C. Ward
Melifea Ward
Charles Newton Ward
Jeremiah C. Ward
Fern Elizabeth Ward
John Iowa Ward (My ggrandfather)

Some of the family members were coal miner! I found John Iowa and his brothers, Charles and Jeremiah C. working in the coal mines of Colorado.

If anyone is interested in this family or has additional information for me, please contact me.
