The information I have is from several different sources as I am related to both Meeks and Wards.
According to an article in the Mountain Chronicle, 6/8/83 by Billie Edyth Ward: JAMES MEEK and JUDITH HYLTON are given as the parents of ELIZABETH MEEK.
Another source gives the same information. JAMES MEEK is thought to be descended from ADAM MEEK who came to America from Northern Ireland to North Carolina and died in 1828 in Tennessee. This link was not established at the time I received this information.
According to my Ward Family resources, WILLIAM WARD is shown as being the son of JAMES WARD SR, (born ca.1755 in Virginia/died 6/1808 in Floyd Co.KY) and SARAH (SALLY) OSBORN (born ca.1755 in Virginia/died after 1830 in Floyd Co. KY)
JAMES WARD SR was the son of WILLIAM WARD (born before 1730 in Inishowen Penn., County Donegal, Ireland/died in Virgina). His mother was Elizabeth (last name not given)
I, too, would be interested in more information. Thanks!
