My great-great-grandfather is buried in Oneida. Elijah Howard "Ebenezer" Ward was born c.1835 in Canada of Irish or English descent. Settled in Richardson Co. NE, worked at a veterinarian, died 1901 in Oneida KS. I would love to know the circumstances of his death and why he is buried in Oneida. His grave marker is a stack of red bricks with "E WARD" chiseled into one of them. I do have a photo.

Ebenezer's wife, Sarah Ann Orner, was born in PA in 1840 and is buried as "Mrs. Dr." Sarah Ward in Tecumseh NE in 1921

Their daughter, Eva Jane Ward, was born 1877 in IA, worked in a restaurant in Seneca KS, and married Julius Howard Orlick/Orlik/Orlich in 1897 in Seneca. Julius was a German immigrant who worked at a livery stable in Seneca.

If you come across any info of this family I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for your efforts!
