I am looking for any information on Edna Elizabeth WARD born 1886 or 87...in Kansas, and died in Michigan. She lived in the Flint MI area much of her life. She married Guy English, and divorced, then I find her married to Herbert Sanford in the 1930's census...this is the man I always knew as my great grandfather even though he was not related by blood to me. I just today found a record of marriage for Edna Ward English (parents Nellie Lillie and John Ward) and a Conrad Rudolph Kohn in 1913. The age is a major discrepancy, as she would have been older than 21...she'd been married and divorced from Guy ENGLISH by this time so she must have lied about her age to him. She never talked about him, I have no record of children from this marriage (she was still young) and I would like to look into this gap in my family. If anyone has any info, please contact me at email@example.com thanks!
Really think this should be split between the English and Irish versions of Ward. It's a little confusing putting two completely different family lines together just because they coincidentally ended up spelled the same.
Some bits and pieces of information on my line are my father's direct ancestors an unnamed Irish immigrant 'Who was either stagecoach driver or a horse breeder' who came to Western Scotland in the 18th/19th century and another who died in the Blantyre mining disaster, 22nd October 1877, in Blantyre, Scotland. I could only find the record of one Ward among the recorded dead, Neil Ward, Born 1826 (Who could possibly be the same Irish immigrant or the son/grandson of) who left a widow Ann (McAulay). Then we skip forward, but stay in the Lanarkshire area, to my Grandfather James Ward born around the early 1900's, who lost a brother in the first world war Peter Ward, married Agnes Welsh and had 11 children including my dad Patrick in1938 who moved to Edinburgh in the 1950's. If this in anyway coincides with any other Wards stories please let me know.
My father's surname is Ward. Interesting :)

Hi :) I am the 5 generation born 1963 my dad was born in 1924 in Ontario,Canada his father was born 1888 in Ontario, Canada his father was born in 1861 in Ontario, Canada and his father was Alfred Walter Ward born England in about 1833 and his wife was Maria Jane Myers (German Desent) born 22 December in Ontario, Canada. P.S. Do you ever have a problem of picking up a irish accent when you are around irish people ( I do?) it makes me wouder.

Peder E Ward
Hi, my name is Peder Ward, I’m 18 years old and lives in Norway. My great great great grandfather came to Norway from Sweden in the middle of 1800, his name was Anders Ward and was born 1823. All the Wards in Norway descended from Anders. I’m really interested in my family and want to find out where and why the Ward name came to Nordic. Anders Ward is on the top of my family tree right now, every Ward in Norway descent from him, and I don’t know who his ancestors were… But I hope I can find out and build my family tree even higher. So, if someone know ANYTHING about some Wards in the Nordic around the 1800, I’m glad to hear everything because I write some documents about it. You can contact me here with a comment or even better on facebook (Peder E Ward). Would have been fun to talk about the Ward family with someone. Sorry for my English and see my family tree in the link.
I have my family tree going back to around 1850 or so, clustered around the Leeds area of Yorkshire, but also spreading out to across the NW of England and over to the US around 1920. As it's come to a dead end finding relatives prior to 1850, I am wondering if I start with Wards from around 1700 and work my way forward I might find a connection later on to my own tree...
