I found three members of the Ward Family that you were looking for.
I found obituaries and death records for Edward D. and Emeline A. and also I found Andrew P. Temple who was listed in the 1900 Census as a nephew.
These entries are from Obituaries, Humboldt County, California, 1900-1910, compiled by Marilyn Keach Milota.

I found Emeline Ward listed in the Ocean View Cemetery records book. I found Andrew Temple listed as Andrew Truple in the cemetery records book, so spelling is not always accurate.

Hope this helps you.
P.S. I'm hoping that Darlene Garrity sees your request as she will probably be able to look the obituaries up for you at the library.
