I am also a descendent of Messer Ward and Rhoda Horn. I have quite a bit of information on the family in KY and TN and forward and would be happy to share it with other family members. I do show John Weatherford and Wealthy Ward (also have a Wealthy in my direct line) but do not have much information on that line coming forward. steve_vargo@hotmail.com

I am researching the Bugg name from Kentucky. Most of what I have found is from Henderson, KY. Could you tell me if you have anything leading to Henderson?

Find any connection with Mary Ward(Stewart Co.) who married Ashel Dancer? Some have hypothosized that Mary was daughter of Messer.

do you have any dates? I show Mary M. Ward (b. 1831), daughter of Messer Ward (b. 1798), who was the son of Messer Ward (b. 1764) and Rhoda Horn. I do not know who Mary married.

Mary Ward was born 1798 in Stewart Co.,TN. She married Ashall Dancer ca 1813 in Stewart Co.,TN. She died in Bastrop Co.,TX in 1853. Since Messer was born in 1798 also, maybe Mary was a sister.

I do not show Mary as a child of Messer (1798) and sister of Messer (1864), but could have missed her somehow. However, some of my information came (about 10 years ago) from Joe Ward of KY, who had done extensive Ward reserch for years. I assume that it was pretty accurate. I also just now re-read Rhoda (Horn) Ward's will (1830). She listed her children by name, but did not mention a Mary or a last name Dancer.

I am a descendant of Messer Ward, and sitting infront of me is a book entitled "The Decendents of Michael Dale Ward Jr. 1840 - 1921" Since then it has been kept upto date Twice by Joe E. Ward both in 1941 and 1953. After that it was revised by Horace E. Ward in 1960. And then once more by my grandfather Alton Ward in 1971. If anyone would like information I would be happy to supply them with the dates I have.
