Is anyone out there related to the Ward family in Porter County? I am looking for links to my father's side of the family. I know that he had 8 brothers sisters and that their mom was a tallish dark headed woman, who was quite fiesty and strong. She raised all 9 kids after husband walked out on them. Last kid born in 1940. Family may have moved from KY somewhere. Please help me clean up some cobwebs and have closure on this matter.

I am interested in the info you have on the ward family in Indiana. My ggrandfather's name was rumored to be welty Ward. He sometimes used walter. I wonder if there is some connection. I can not find his father who apparntly abandoned the family in the early 1900's. Do you think there could be a connection? thanks Linda

Walter or Welty ward doesn't sound familure to me as a first name but interestingly enough my ggrandmother's maiden name was Louisa Welty. My family has a habit of branching off and losing contact with everyone. Let me know if this helps. Happy New Year!

Dear Amanda,
I don't know if it will help but here is some information I have on my GGuncle, Ezekiel Cass BLUE. Apparently the BLUE and WARD family were linked for a while because Ezekiel's father married one Verlinda Ann WARD 1837 in Fountain CO> IN. Ezekiel himself ,arried Catherine WARD 1866 in Fountain CO. IN I am searching for a connection,if any, between Verlinda and Catherine and their parents names. If I find out any thing more I will send you another message.
