I am working on a DAR application using Ward as a Rev War patriot. I am also descended from him. he's my 3rd gr. grandfather. The Posts stuck to CT. I have not been able to find his death cert in NC but he is buried in the family plot in Essex, riverview cemetery CT. There may be a record of a body transport to the cemetery for burial but I have never looked for it. His daughter Monisa A Post married Judah Simmons my 2nd gr grandfather.
