I do hope anyone who is researching Ward Dudley and 2nd wife Helen Cole realize that he was not born in Vermont. Helen Cole is buried in Waverly New York with a few of her children. Ward is buried in Lakewood Cemetery, Hennipen Co. Minnesota. He apparently left Helen and, perhaps, went to live with his son, William in Wayzata. Who knows - Good hunting. Carol W. Dudley P.s Ward's first wife was Sally Wells - daughter of Henry Wells - (check "Wells of Southold") That book is rife with mistakes but a good start - Sally is buried in the Ithica City Cemetery along with a few of her grandchildren.
