                          DESCENDANTS OF
                JOSIAH I WARD and HANNAH SMITH

1.

	The name of Josiah Ward (1) does not appear in the probate and land indicesin Hampshire or Hampden Counties, MA. nor is he mentioned in the variousbooks and town histories for Springfield or West Springfield.  He was probably of the William Ward of Sudbury, MA line or perhaps the Wards of Connecticut.  but I could find nothing to prove this theory.
 	 
	The baptisms of Josiah's first four children plus daughter Lydia are recorded in the West Springfield printed vital records under date of 17 Sept. 1752.

                               Generation 3

10. JOSIAH III3 WARD (JOSIAH II2, JOSIAH I1), born 20 Apr 1760 in Springfield, Hampden Co., MA. He married (1)  SARAH COOK, christened 2 Jun 1765 in Sutton, Worcester Co., MA(65), died Jun 1802, daughter of OLIVER COOK and BEULAH KNAPP.(66) He married (2) on 7 Nov 1802 in Brattleboro, VT,(67) HANNAH FIELD, christened 13 Aug 1753 in Northfield, MA, daughter of PEDAJAH FIELD and HANNAH (---). (68) 
 
Josiah 3 supposedly died after Nov. 1802 by falling off a raft in the Ohio River on his way west.(69)  He is probably the Josiah Ward who placed the following advertisement in the Brattleboro Reporter  of  05 Dec  1803 “Whereas  Hannah my Wife has eloped from my place of residence, I therefore forbid all persons harboring or trusting her on my account, as I will pay no debts of her contracting from this date. JOSIAH WARD, Brattleboro 19 May 1803         

 I could not prove this but it may be so as Josiah's brother Jared lived in Huron Co. Ohio and his Aunt Sabra Day lived in Portage County, Ohio.
 	 
	Josiah 3 was a Soldier of the Revolution. As a resident of Springfield
and/or West Springfield, MA,  he enlisted several times from 1777 to 1781 for designated periods of time.  In a record dated 2 Apr. 1781 he is listed as a resident of W. Springfield, age 20, 5'7" tall, light complexion, occupation farmer.  He was engaged for the town of Springfield for a period of three years.  In his various enlistment records he is referred to as Josiah or Josiah 2d.(70)
 	 
	This third Josiah came from Mass. to Windham Co., VT soon after the
Revolution.  I did not find an entry for him in the 1791 census of Vermont for Windham County but he could have been residing with his father-in-law Oliver COOK who had 3 males over 16, 2 males under 16, and 2 females living in his household.  Josiah 3' s 1800 census entry for Brattleboro reads 2 males under 10, 1 male 26-45; 2 females under 10, 1 female 26-45.
 	 
	There is no record for Josiah 3 in Marllboro District, Windham Co., VT Co. Probate Court nor is there anything helpful in the land records in Brattleboro.
 	 
	Josiah's children were probably all born in Brattleboro, VT although their
birth's are not recorded there.

In her will dated 1864, Electa gave her gold beads to Electa Elizabeth EARL, wife of Edwin; her cashmere shawl to Elvira L. ?; her woolen shawl to Harriet Jones, wife of Joseph; a black shawl to widow Jane Nichols and the balance of her clothing to be distributed among these three women plus Louisa WITT, wife of William.  The balance of her estate was to be given to her brother George W.WARD.  An inventory was taken by L.A. Barney & A. Stockwell showed five bankbooks totaling $580. (86)

On his first enlistment papers at Burlington he was 5'or 6' & 1/2 inch tall, age 16, born Brattleboro, VT.(87)  According to the two Ward Genealogies, he died in the service of his country on the Yellowstone River.

(89) She married  JOHN ACKLEY probably the one christened 4 Sep 1757 in New South Church Boston, MA son of FRANCIS ACKLEY & TABITHA BULL (90)
 
	There is a probate record for Miriam Ackley at the Conn. State LIbrary in
Hartford which consists of nothing but a bond.
 
	The listing for John Ackley in 1790 census of Guilford, VT is 1 male over
16, 1 male under 16 & 2 females. There is a John Ackley in the 1800 census  of Hartford Co. CT with l male under 5, 1 male 26-44, 1 female 16-25 and l female 26-44 and this may be John Ackley formerly of Windham Co. VT (91

	According to the death notice of Jared's granddaughter Sarah McEwen,  Jared 
came to the State of Ohio from the State of CT.  (100)  I did not find him listed in the 1790 CT. census but there was one of his name in the 1790 New York state census living in the Town of Balltown, Albany County with a family consisting of 1 male over 16,1 male under 16 and 2 females.  This may be Jared of Ohio; perhaps he came from CT. via the State of New York.
 	 
	Jared was in the Town of Mentor, Ohio in 1800 (101)and by the Year 1803 he resided in Painsville, Ohio.(102) Jared came to the Town of Huron, Ohio 1808/9 where he lived on the Flemmond property.  John B. Flemmond, a French Canadian, kept an inn and traded with the Indians.  He served Gen. Harrison as a scout, guide and interpreter during the War of 1812.(103)  Jared lived on the Flemmond property for about one year before removing to Avery, Ohio (now the Town of Milan).
 	 
	Betsy (Ward) Collins, a daughter of Jared, in an article published in the
Sept. 1876 Firelands Pioneer, reminisced about the time her father came to
Huron and of the events that happened there.  Mrs. Collins owned a ladies
silver hair comb made by a French blacksmith named Countermarsh made on the
Flemmond place. She also possessed a butter ladle made by the Indian Chief
Ogontz whose home was somewhere near what is now the City of Sandusky, Ohio.
 	 
	In Avery, the Wards settled on land which formerly belonged to David
Abbott, another early settler   In the aforementioned work by Mr.
Frohman, he talks of a dance that was held in Squire Abbott's barn on 4 July
1812.  Forty couples attended this affair and for sure Jared and his family
must have been in attendance. (104)
 	 
	The Town of Avery was the site for Fort Avery, a military outpost used
during the War of 1812.  The chief means of transportation in this area was of course by water since Avery was located on the Huron River near Lake Erie.
Jared Ward owned a dugout canoe 50 ft long which his son Elam helped to propel from Ward's landing.(105) In the early years Avery was susceptible to Indian attack but this threat diminished upon the outbreak of the war in 1812.
 	 
	In the Firelands Pioneer of May 1859 (page 45) Mrs. Lucy A. Stevens talked
about her early school days in Milan.  She had this to say about the Ward
Family, "The scholars were myself and sister, the two Barrets (I do not know
where they are), Rhoda Ward (who died in Michigan fifteen or twenty years ago), Sally Ward (who died in Peru seventeen or eighteen years ago), Betsey Ward (now the wife of Isaac Collins in Huron), Elam Ward (of this place)."
 	 
	In the Spring of 1811 a road was laid out in Avery by Jared Ward, Jabez
Wright and Charles Barnum.  In 1815 Jared's name was on a tax bill in Huron
Township and in April of 1819 he was a member of the jury for a trial involving two Indians who murdered two men from Danbury, Erie Co., Ohio.(106)
 	 
	On the DAR Revolutionary Soldier Roster for Ohio as well as other
published material, Jared Ward is called a Revolutionary Soldier with 
rank of Colonel.  This is probably in error as during the years of the Revolution,
Jared Ward would have been aged eight to fifteen years, a bit young to serve,
especially as a Colonel.  It is more likely that he was a Soldier in the War of 1812 serving at perhaps Fort Avery, although I did not find his name in the Roster of Ohio Soldiers in the War of 1812. Perhaps this was another Jared Ward.

	Josiah 4 was a resident of District 3 in West Dummerston, VT in 1810.(117) There are no land records recorded at Dummerston for Josiah (4).
 	 
	During the Years 1815 - 1833 Josiah 4 made several purchases of land in
West Brattleboro and by 1847 his farm consisted of 235 acres. On 15 May 1815
Josiah Jr. purchased 75 acres of land in Halifax from Amos Gore for $850 - Wtn: Stephen Greenleaf & Barna Pratt.(118)  On 18 Apr 1815 he purchased land from Thaddeus Miller for $100, Lot 13, 2d Range in Brattleboro, Wtn: Alpheus Greenleaf & Hepsibah? Salisbury. (119). On 11 May 1821 Josiah exchanged land Thaddeus Miller, witnesses Stephen Greenleaf & Samuel Miller.(120) He exchanged land with A. Stoddard on 3 May 1825 Wtn: Thomas & Stephen Greenleaf.(121) On 3 Sept 1833 he exchanged land with Samuel Farwell.(122) On 3 Sept 1833 Josiah purchased land from Reuben Church for the sum of $140.00.(123)
 	 
	On 10 July 1847 Josiah sold for the sum of $4000 land in West Brattleboro to his son William Ward this land being "all the farm I now own, on which I live consisting of 235 acres." William Ward for the consideration of $500 paid by Josiah Ward purchased one undivided half of the farm "on which I William Ward and the said Josiah Ward now live" "I having mortgaged the other half of said farm to secure his support."  William Ward was to maintain and support Josiah and wife Sybil Ward during their lifetimes. Among other things William was to give Josiah Ward $5.00 spending money every March.  He was to furnish sd Josiah with a suitable horse & carriage, one good cow, suitable number of barn fowls, good dry wood etc.  Also, William "shall permit his sister Julia to have a home in the house with her parents and board her with them whenever she shall be there out of employment or unable to work and shall also support, maintain and clothe his other sister Laura.....til she arrives at the age of 18." William was also to support and maintain Josiah's granddaughter Anna Ward.(124) 
 	 
	Josiah 4's death notice was printed in the Semi-Weekly Eagle, Sunday
evening February 25, 1850, Vol. III #57, Whole #265, Page 3 and reads "In this town Feb. 14, Mr. Josiah Ward aged 63 - also Feb. 16 Miss Laura Ett Ward, aged 18.  It is seldom that a more painful event occurs within the family circle than that which is brought before us in these two sudden deaths in one house, from which two coffins, containing a father and daughter, were borne to the grave at the same time. Such a scene as this funeral presented is rarely witnessed. Both the deceased were of adult age, and in each case the work of death had been short. The daughter's last sickness being confined to a single week and the father's embracing only 48 hours.  Truly may it be said that we 'know not what a day might bring forth',  Mr. Ward was a worthy citizen, much respected by all who knew him, for his strict integrity, as well as his useful industry, and his loss will be deeply felt not only in the doubly bereaved family, but in the community where he has long resided and sustained an irreproachable character."
