Jeanette, I am a descendant of Sophronia Wells who M an Albert Emory Ward 28 May 1884 in Clinton Co., Ohio He was b. in Ohio acc to the 1900 census in Arkansas Sept 1864 same as your Albert They had several children, James was b.
APR 1888 In Oh, Emory was b. 1893 in Oh., Cora was b. 1895 in Indiana and I found them in the 1900 census in White, Arkansas., the 1910 census and the 1920 census. In the 1900 census he was living next to his brother and family. You can see how they moved from Ohio to Indiana to Arkansas and I guess could have spent some time in Ill. although I didn't find any documentation of that. I know Albert was buried in Ark, but I am looking for more info on his wife Sophronia and their children James, Emory, Cora, Jessie, Parker and Erdale? I will try to find out where in Ohio Albert was b and whohis parents were. Rita
