Hi,

Isaac Ward Sr., b. abt. 1800 place unknown
Francis Vinson, b. AR, 1810

Edie/Eady Elizabeth Ward McCrury
Born: 10 May 1826, AR
Died: 11 Aug 1899, Red River County, TX
Source: Charlotte Peebles family tree, Ancestry which needs to be documented and proved.

I'd look for Isaac's probate records on microfilm. The Red River County Records are on microfilm at the Paris Junior College, www.tsl.texas.gov/arc/local/redriver.html. Your local, public library can request the film via inter-library loan. Generally there is no charge.

John McCrory
Married: 6 June 1848, Red River Co. TX
Eady Ward

Both of their parents might be on their actual marriage license. You can contact the Red River County Clerk and ask about ordering a copy of their actual marriage license.

You can also look up their newspaper marriage announcement. Their parents names might be in that too.

John (father) died in 1864 in Red River County. Texas wasn't using death certificates at that time. I'd contact the Red River County Texas Genealogical Society, http://sites.rootsweb.com/~tnrrcgs/ and ask if they have a local death index, indexed newspaper death notices and cemetery inventories. His parents names might be in his death notice.

Edy died in Red River in 1893. I'd contact the Red River County Gen. Soc. and ask the same questions about Edy as mentioned above for John.
