Hi, I knew john ward and his wife Betty who owned the S&W tavern. I lived in the neighbor hood since I was a kid. I owned the bar back in the nineties and renamed it the Gin Mill. John ward and his wife continued to live over the bar and were my landlords. I closed the bar back in 1996. Since then it had never reopened. Several years later john ward passed away and his wife one week apart from each other. They were survived by a daughter Donna who did get married under the name of Rossi. Later on got divorced and married a Bayonne police officer. Do not know who. But she did work for the city of Bayonne as a zoning officer if that helps you with a lead. She had a brother but didn't know his name, she had two children John Rossi jr. And I believe Melissa Rossi. The pizza place next door to the tavern was turned into a Chinese restaurant and the bar and building after a fire was renovated into apartments. I have photos of the bar if you like. But none from when john ward owned it. Donna would have some. And she still lives in Bayonne. Going through the municipal building looking under the name of Donna Rossi who was a zoning officer would be your best lead to getting all the information your looking for. If I can find her and contact her I will show her this site.
