Sally's great-great-great Grandparents:
  on  first page;   to   second page 

Thomas Ward ca 1742 - 1796his parents 
& Pheraby Hill ca 1742 - 1813 her parents
of Powellsville, Bertie County, North Carolina


           This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!!  


    Thomas Ward  was born ca 1742 [he is not included on the 1757 tax list indicating he was then under the age of 16].
This Thomas Ward appears to be the grandson  of Michael Ward who died in Bertie County about 1756 and his wife,
 Ann Freeman. I think his father was Michael Ward Jr as Thomas Ward named his first son Michael Ward.
    Richard Ward [who I think is Thomas's uncle - but could be his father] deeded Thomas land in 1757 (K-46) (This I think could be his Uncle Thomas.)
Thomas Ward was also deeded land that year from Joseph Barradil (K-41) in Bertie County, NC.
   This Thomas Ward's  widow was Pharaby when he died. She appears to be the Faraba Hill & Farabee Hill who witnessed two deeds for some neighbors on Dec 18, 1756 along with John Sawkill and an Isaac Hill (who could be either her father or her brother H-393, 394.) 
In Feb 1772 Isaac Hill's will was proved in Hertford Ct and the administration granted to Isaac Hill.  
   In Jan 1760 Capt James Jones replaced Thomas Ward as overseer of the road.
   Thomas Ward in Oct 1761 was appointed constable between Quoyoccason Swamp [rises in n central Bertie County and flows nw into Stony Creek] and the County Line. 
   This Thomas Ward was appointed in March 1772 one of the Justices of the Court in Bertie Co. 
   Thomas Ward made his will in Bertie county 14 March, 1795
      --It was proved Nov 1796.
     His wife Pheraby Ward died 29 Sept, 1813 [Bible of James Ward].

18th century Ward Home near Powellsville, NC  
ca 1970 photos by James Moore

The Ward home place was just a couple of miles away from us near Powellsville. It was a charming story and a half house. Stylistically, it was an 18th-century design. I imagine it was built by James and Isaac's father Thomas. Unfortunately, it was demolished in recent years. However, I understand that the interior woodwork was salvaged. The Ward cemetery is still there with James Ward's stone being the sole survivor. [e-mail from James Moore]

We are delighted that our ancestors' home apparently was dismantled and has been rebuilt at Salmon Creek.

Ward-Bass House and White-Lilly House
Ward-Bass2.jpg (20753 bytes)
Location:
637 B. Avoca Farm Rd., Merry Hill County: Bertie

    This pair of 18th century houses is located on Salmon Creek in northeast North Carolina. By water, the setting is two miles from the historic town of Edenton; by land, it is 10 miles from Edenton. Salmon Creek is a deep-water creek (10 to 15 feet in depth) that flows into the Albemarle Sound, the largest fresh water sound in the world. It also was the home of the first permanent settler in North Carolina, Nathaniel Batts, who moved to Salmon Creek in 1665. The property is located off U.S. Highway 17 in Bertie County, North Carolina, midway between Windsor and Edenton. 
     The Ward House, built during the years of 1770-1809, was constructed in two parts and reflects both Georgian and Federal influences. With raised panel wainscoting, all original doors with H-L hinges and a magnificent mantel and over mantel, the earlier Georgian style house has been completed with a hall (or living room), kitchen, dining, bed and bath. It has a separate heating and cooling system. The later addition, built in 1810 is at present stored on the property. It has a beautiful Federal mantel, recessed panel wainscoting and raised panel doors. The Ward House has 1,200 square feet of living space. 
    The White-Lilly House connects to the Ward-Bass House. It is also a late 18th century house. The White-Lilly House contains 600 square feet of living space which includes living, bed, bath, utility and sleeping loft. It reflects a more yeoman lifestyle. However, with exposed beaded ceiling joists, an arched mantel and flush panel sides, the house has Colonial charm rarely found. Each house has its own heating and cooling systems, as well as a separate hot water system. The houses are connected by dining and utility rooms. Each house has a porch with a view of Salmon Creek. 75 to 100 feet of the acreage is water front.

Bertie Co Wills
Michael Ward Feb 16, 1800. Aug Term 1803. Wife Sarah. Children: William, Joshua, Reddick, & Winnefred Ward. Wife and Wm. Rayner Exrs. Test. Zadock Morris, Walter McFarline.

A Michael Ward made an affidavit in Bertie Co in 1777 relating to the Tories & their activities. (This Michael Ward would have been neither Thomas's father - died 1772 or his son - too young; I think the man who made this affidavit was the son of Phillip Ward.)


e-mail from Kendall Sparkman - I find one additional record of particular interest - in Nov, 1803, William "Lurry" as guardian of William S. Sparkman brought an action in the Edenton District Court for the division of 380 acres in Bertie which William held as tenant -in- common with William Reed [Sparkman] (so much for being the bondsman for his wedding a few years earlier!). William Reed [Sparkman] appealed in May Court, 1804.

  COL. SAMUEL B. SPRUILLCol. Spruill died at Coleraine last Tuesday. He was 81 years old. For a number of years the infirmities of age forced him to retire from active association with his fellows in his profession --the law. His was an eventful life. He was a member of the legislature from Bertie county, from Tyrrell county, and from Northampton county. At one time he was a man of large possessions and scattered plenty with a lavish hand. He was Colonel of the 2nd Regiment of Cavalry and led the Confederate forces at New Berne. He was a brave man. We hope some friend of his, better acquainted with his life, will write a sketch for the LEDGER

IN MEMORIAM.
Col. Samuel Blunt Spruill departed this life in Coleraine on June 13th from exhaustion of his vital powers. He died sitting in a chair, and to all appearances without pain or struggle. Col. Spruill was born in Tyrrell county, this State, on the 23rd of November, 1803. During his eventful life he represented Tyrrel, Northampton and Bertie counties in the legislature with credit to himself and honor to his constituents. Before the war an enthusiastic Whig, he has always shown in an active way, heartfelt interest for the welfare of the land he loved so well. Part of his life was spent in Raleigh, where he was associated in the practice of law with the distinguished lawyer B. F. Moore. He represented Bertie county in the secession convention and was bitterly opposed to going out of the Union. Dike many others, throu[g]h int[i]midation and the overwhelming numbers against them, had to surrender their honest convictions. At the beginning of hostilities between the North and South, he volunteered his services to his country and was promoted to the Colonency of the 2nd N. C. Cavalry. His property being destroyed by war, he resumed at its close, the practice of law in Bertie county. Several times he held the office of Solicitor of the Inferior Court of Bertie county, and discharged the duties of the office well and faithfully. He was twice married, first to Mrs. Cannon, of Raleigh, second to Mrs. Harriet Hardy, of Bertie. He leaves one son by his last wife, S. B. Spruill, attorney at law of Plymouth. Col. Spruill possessed some fine qualities of head and heart. He was gifted with a tenacious memory that was stored with a rich fund of reminiscences. He was intimately acquainted with the great men of the State --those intellectual giants of forty ane sixty years ago, who walked the mountain rang[e]s of greatness and shed imperishable luster upon the pages of her history. It was an intellectual feast to listen to him tell of them. But it was only those who sounded the depth of his heart that knew the warmth and intensiry of feeling he possessed. Open handed generosity always characterized him in the p_imy days of prosperity and in the dark hours of adversity he was liberal to a fault. The poor and neady were never turned away empty handed. And his eye always moistened at any tale of wrong or distress. He had his faults. Let him who has none cast arrows of detraction upon his memory. He was a member of the M. E. Church and his faith in the promises of God was fixed and immutable as the needle to the pole. He sleeps well after life's fitful fever. Peace to his ashes.

Isaac Hill Ward ca 1764 - 1830/40 his parents
of Hertford Co NC & Dressen Co TN


           This is my working hypothesis - the way I see it as of this moment!!  


Isaac Hill Ward ca 1764 & ?  lived Hertford Co
CENSUS 1790 HERTFORD CO, NC: WARD, ISAAC HILL    1,     1,       3 ,      0,      9

1. Isaac Hill Ward bef 1790
is the same Isaac Hill Ward who moved to the "Bradshaw Settlement" of western NC about 1822 (which became Dresden Co. TN in 1823). This Ward became a Justice of the Peace in 1827 and from the census records apparently died between the 1830 and 1840 Census in Weakley Co. The 1830 Census shows him in Weakley Co. between the ages of 60-70 (which matches what you show as birthdate c.1764) with his wife about the same age. The 1840 census does not show him. 1850 Weakley Census shows Isaac H. Ward and family from NC (we believe around Webster). The evidence and family tradition says that this Isaac H. Ward is the son of Isaac Hill Ward who moved west to take possession of his father's lands, etc., in Weakley Co. in the early 1840s. It is from this Isaac H. Ward that I am descended. 
        
     from David H Ward .
2. girl Ward bef 1790 -
3. girl Ward bef 1790 -

more from David H Ward 10/21/03: I'm still bouncing around on the Wards in Weakley Co, trying to figure out who's related to who. 
I have found Isaac Hill Ward on the Hertford Co 1790 Census (as you have too), which makes sense because that's next door to Bertie Co where Thomas's will was executed. 
I have not found any listing for Isaac Hill Ward on subsequent census rolls.
I found three Isaac Wards on the 1800 NC Census, One each in Chowan, Greene and Pitt Counties. 
In 1810 there are still the one in Chowan, and then two in Rowan. 
1820 (just two years before he moved to Weakley) has one each in Chowan, Greene, Iredell and Rowan.  Family "tradtion" had I.H. (senior) and his son I.H. (junior) both having moved from Hertford to near Webster, NC shortly after the Revolution, and I.H. (senior) making the move to W. TN in 1822.  I.H.(junior) moved to W.TN after his father's death, presumably from the Webster area, after 1840. 
 This is again borne out by family "tradition".  This "tradtion" was handed down directly from the daughter in law of I.H. (junior) in the 1920s, when one of my Great Uncles took an interest in the family history.  He published it in a book titled Isaac H. Ward Descendants in 1963.
Webster is in Jackson Co., in far western NC, and I have not found any I.H. Ward in the Census records for Jackson, though I'm still looking.
