I am searching for the parents of Solomon Stateright Ward who was born around 1819 in South Carolina, married Esther Starling, and had four sons, John Elbert, Simeon, Pleasant Stateright, and Felix. He moved to Union County, Ark., then to Union Parish, LA. where he died. I cannot find when he died or where he was buried.
His son, John Elbert, is the great grandfather of my wife. Shirley Ward Hinson, whose father was Ottis Ward, son of William Pleasant (Willie Plez), son of John Elbert, son of Solomon Stateright.
