December 14, 2010 Grave Matters Ward Cemetery off of Mansion Bridge Rd

Above is the gravemarker for John Ward.  Beside his marker is possibly Sarah Clark Lynch Ward's marker which engraving has faded with time.  John Ward's first wife Annie Childs Ward is listed on John Ward's stone, but she is not buried here.  She died in 1765 and was buried on her brother Paul Chiles family graveyard which has disappeared with time.  I have written a few blogs about John Ward.  You will find them under the March 8, 9, 16, 22 and 23rd blogs.

Stone says
Major John Ward
Born 1708
Died  1816
Annie Childs Ward
