James Ward is buried at Blagg-Duckworth Cemetery, Siloam Springs, Arkansas. I am a descendant of His brother Charles Jackson Ward who was in IT about 1834. He left and went to N. Carolina and raised a family in Cherokee County, N. Carolina at Murphy. I have many ancestors buried in NE Oklahoma. Most of my immediate line are buried at Stilwell and Foyil, Oklahoma.

hi larry,its always nice to meet a reitive. i guess you already know the family history. john (jack) and cathline had a son named jame ,and charles and john and many others. and each of the geneation there after also named their son's by those names ,that what makes it so diffacult to tie anything down. george washington ward is on the cherokee rolls as one of the "old settlers" as are many other of the wards of that time. as for the one that was from tn. or nc they had a border change rigght around that time. that might explain or he may have just moved because the white kept herassing us and pushing us futher and further. did you know of your cherokee heritage? chathine's mothers name was sookie hooper (full blood)she was wolf clan ,and a cousin to nancy ward (beloved woman) and also to chief atakalakola.sookie's father was chief old hop a very honerale chief. well if you have any info on the john ward that died in tx 1837 or mary elizabeth that died in tx in1839-40 please let me know would love to find out which of the wards were their parints or what mary's maiden name was. thanks

Hello Jackie. I knew of the Cherokee heritage, as my grandfather mentioned it several times when I we would visit them as a child. I don't think he really knew to what extent they played in the settlement of NE Oklahoma. I have visited many cemeteries in that area the last couple of yeatrs and am attending a reunion at Westville later this year. Also, planning another trip in next month or so to roam thru some more cemetweries. I am in Ft. Worth, Texas.
