Hi. Is there anyone who might be able to shed some light on a question I have about the Ward family. My father's mother was Anna Lou Ward, 1898-1967, born in Stone County Ark. Her father was William Henry Ward 1857-1908. His father was Joseph C Ward 1835-1880, his father was James Ward 1812-1902. James Ward's father appears to have been James Water Beaver Ward 1783-1825. From there I continue to find Indian heritage. I show James Water Beaver's wife to have been Elizabeth Vann 1782-1832 with a notation that she drown while crossing the White River. As far back as I can remember everyone but my Grandma said she was American Indian. I was wondering if you have any matching information? Most of what I have came from personal knowledge of my Ward family and from Ancestry.com I'm not sure where to go from here to make sure my info is correct. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
