Apologies. I may have been wrong. When I saw the name Tame Doe Ward, I assumed it was the wife of John. Anyway its an interesting story. From Ward family tree by Libby Preston: John was kidnapped by Shawnee at age 3, and raised by Indian family,and given the name White Wolf, and fought as an Indian in their campaigns. In 1774 he fought with Shawnee Indians at battle of Pt. Pleasant, Va. His father, James of Va Militia was killed there. John was killed with a skirmish with a white party that included his brother James at Reeve's crossing in Ross county Ohio. He was married to Sutawney Tame Doe. Their children are listed as : 1,Sutawney, 2, Phoebe 3,Mary 4, unknown.

The John Ward I have was the son of Bryan Ward. Bryan was from Ireland County Donegal and his son John was born in Ireland. Bryan came to Colonial America about 1760 and married a white woman named Ann. He live near the Tugaloo River. He was a trader in the Cherokee Nation East where he married Nanyei or Nancy Ward a fullblood Cherokee/Delaware Indian. As I said in previous information her parents were Tame Doe and Fivekiller. Her great gramdfather was Amatoya Motoy Chief of the Cherokee Nation. Nancy was also known as the GHIGAU(Beloved Woman) She was given this title because she fought along side her first husband Kingfisher in the Creek Muskogee War when he fell in battle. She had the power to override any decision the Tribal council made. She was a very powerful woman of her time. She lived in what is now Polk County, TN and her grave is located there. She married Bryan Ward and had a daughter with him and she also had two children from her first marriage.

Bryan's son John Ward came into Cherokee Nation also with his father and married a half blood Cherokee named Catherine McDaniel. Catherine was the daughter of William David McDaniel who married the daughter(Sookie/Granny Hopper) of CunneShote/Old Hop Chief of the Cherokee Nation. Sookie was a fullblood Cherokee. John and Catherine had nine children. Among them was children named Alexander. The Ward family was intermarried with many of the Cherokees in Oklahoma Indian Territory and can be found on the Tribal Rolls known as the Old Settlers Roll as these were the cherokees who left the Cherokee Nation East before the Trail of Tears.

John Ward was never captured by any Indians nor was he raised by any. He was about Nineteen when he arrived in the Cherokee Nation East. His father Bryan died in Franklin County Georgia. I have a copy of his will. The information posted about John being captured by indians is incorrect.

I have extensive information on the Cherokee Ward connection and.
