Surnames: Holt—Ward-McCrury
Sarah Ann Delilah Ward and William A. Ward were brother and sister, their parents were Absolom “Abner” Ward b. 1806 Kentucky married Mary “Polly” Holt in Arkansas . Edie Ward married John McCrury in 1848 in RedRiver County . They are parents of John and Celia McCrury. So they are cousins, but how, who was parents of Edie Ward? I have no positive proof for Absolom’s parents seems he was orphan. Any help grateful

This was confusing so I started at the beginning.

Absalom O. Ward
Married: 9 July 1829, Hempstead Co. AR
Polly Holt
Source: Arkansas Compiled Marriages 1779-1850

1830 Hempstead, Arkansas Territory & Hempstead Co. Tax List
Absolom Warde

1840 Missouri, Hempstead, AR
Absolom Ward

1850 Bodcaw, Hempstead, AR
Absolom Wind, . KY, 44, farmer
Mary, b. Unknown, 33
James M., b. AR, 20, laborer
John W., b. AR, 18
Maniah, b. AR, 15
Mary A., b. AR, 13
David, b. AR, 8
Jessie, son, b. AR, 6
Thos J., b. AR, 4
Edward W. Beck, b. SC, 25, laborer

but no Sarah or William. Unless Sarah and William were born soon after Absolom and Polly/Mary's marriage, they didn't have those two children.

1860 Carouse, Hempstead, AR
Mary Ann Ward, b. AR, 48 living by herself

There was an A. B. Ward who married 1878 in Stephens Co. TX to a Mattie St. Clair but I didn't find Absolom or Mattie there. Successful Searching!

You are correct,I should never post with notes in front for my viewing.
James M. Ward ,Born about 1830 , first born to Absalom and Polly Ward.
James married Elizabeth Bennight about 1857 in Arkansas , they had following children:
William Absalom Ward , B. 1857 Hempstead Ark. D. Jan.26,1886 , in McCrury Community Red River, Texas. He married Celia McCrury 1880. William and wife are listed in 1880 Fannin Co. Tx. ,Precinct 6; Enumerated 9th day of June 1880;Family # 154 William age 25B.Ark.; Sealy Mc(this is way it is written on census) age 19 B.Tex.. NOTE: Family # 151 Elizabeth Bennight Widowed age 48 B. MO; James Ward age 22 (son) B. Ark. ; Peter(aka James Wesley) son age 15 B TX.; John W. Ward (son) age 10 Born TX.; and Robert Ward (son) age 5, Bi. Tex.
After William A. Ward died Celia married Robert Forrester, Celia died Bogota, Red River Texas Aug. 10 1943.
Sarah Delilah Ann Ward B. 1864, parents James M. and Elizabeth Bennight Ward. Married John W. McCrury I (son of Edie Ward McCrury and John McCrury). Sarah Delilah Ann McCrury Ward Died March 1, 1893, and John McCrury her husband died Fe. 22, 1893,both are buried in Red River Texas. They died of flu(?). I am assuming all these Wards are cousins. Now question? Who are parents of Edie Ward? I believe she was born in Ark. , was Absalom Ward brother to her Father, or Uncle to Absalom Ward?. It is said Edie took in her two nephews Ben Blanton and Sam Ward and they were half brothers, Ben was the oldest. John Ward was brother to Edie, there is never mentioned who their parents, these Wards were in Texas before 1840. I find Absalom Ward in 1880 Census Hamilton Tx. married to a lady named Jane .They have a Granddaughter with them last name McGlothlin, Jane and Absalom have been married 3yrs. in census I think, going on memory. Thank you for answering. and maybe someone can answer the question...WHO WAS EDIE WARDS PARENTS? Maybe through them we can find parents of Absalom Ward. (or confirm what we know)

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, 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
Source: TX Marriage Index 1824-2014

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.

1850 Red River Co. TX
John McCory, b. AR, 35, farmer
Edy, 22
Allany, dau, 11
Benjamain, 7

1860 Red River Co. TX
John McCrury, b. SC, 45, farmer
Eda, b. AR, 34
James, b. Red River Co. TX, 7
Elizabeth, b. Red River Co. 6
John, b. Red River Co, 4
Martha, b. Red River Co., 2
Cetia, b. Red River Co, 2
Houston, b. Red River Co, 8/12th

S. Fitzgerald, mlae, b. AR, 15
George Fitzgerald, b. Ark 8
John Ward, laborer, b. AR, 40
Henry Ward, laborer, b. AR, 22

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, 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.

1870 Red River Co.
Edie McCurry, b. AR, 35
James, b. AR, 17
John, b. AR, 10
Coley, b. AR, 8
Elizabeth, b. AR, 15
Martha, b. AR, 7
Sam, b. AR, 5
Samuel Ward, b. AR, 23, farmer
Mattie Minns, b. TN, 50, housekeeper

1880 Red River Co.
Edy Mccrury, 55, widow, farmer
Martha, 19
Samuel, 17, laborer
John Corely, nephew, 27, farmer
Wm. Corely, nephew, 25, farmer
Robert Morris, boarder, 17, laborer
John Morris, grandson, 16

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.
