I am looking for information on John Ward (b. Mississippi) who married Ellen Lucinda Ward in Fannin Co, TX 1871.
He is supposedly a relative of hers. I find her and her family on Fannin Co census several years, including 1870. But he is no where to be found. Their son John Henry Ward was born in 1872 Fannin Co, TX. He appears on the 1880 census living with his grandmother (Nancy) and an aunt. Ellen is possibly with the family next door as a hired hand.
Any help would be appreciated.
