About Nathan Ward, Sr., of Grayson, Virginia

Notes for Nathan Ward

The Nathan who died in 1835 and his wife Sarah lived on Saddle Creek in present-day Grayson Co and had sons Zachariah, Benjamin, Lewis, Enoch, Wells, Stephen, Nathan Jr, Landreth, and Silas. One researcher adds another William to the second set although I've seen no documentation for him. (Researcher Ginger Ballard.) Nathan Ward's last will and testiment was written 14 Mar. 1803 Grayson Co., VA; wife's name was not mentioned. In the will He left his estate to his wife, with it to pass at her death to sons Nathan and Enoch. His original tract willed to sons William and Wells. Other records show her name was Sarah.

Nathan Ward Jr married Ann Williams, Grayson Co 1809. and moved to Hawkins Co TN. where he was living 1822 when he sold his inheritance. Son Enoch moved to Rutherford Co NC, he sold out there in 1822. Sarah was living with Enoch. Wells Ward sold out 1807 and seems to have moved away. William Ward became one of the wealthiest men in the community.. A little more to the sketch, but this is all the children records name. (J P Alderman, the author) thinks there were daughters.
