The William Ward Genealogy on page 413, says that Sarah, WWG #4885, "was an evangelist like her
sister Mary C. No children." This is in error, as the following descendants show.

Census: 1880, Cayuga Co. Auburn, New York ED 7, Page 24, Line 33.
Sarah was widowed in this census with 2 children ages 12 & 9. She was listed as 31 years old,
and was a physician. Parents both born in NY. Other census records show her parents born in NJ
and her age 53, 61, 74, in 1900, 1910, and 1920. She apparently had remarried at some point as
her last name was Walters in the 1900 and 1910 census. Occupation was clairvoyant in 1910,
sales lady at auction company in 1920. Probably working for her brother, Calvin Tracy Ward, who
owned auction house and was very wealthy. On death certificate her residence was 764 Vallejo
St., Denver, CO and length in city was 20 years.
