WARD & Annabelle SOULES @ Morristown/Morsston near Livingston Manor. He m
Minnie COSWELL b ca 1871. Joseph WARD's parents were Cornelius WARD & Anna
E CONKLIN. Cornelius parents: Joseph E WARD b ca 1808 - 1886 m ca 1832

Shingles & Chips"
Interesting that IRA would have remarried MINNIE in 1914. She would have
been ae 43
and Ira would have been 29. Doesn't hardly make sense. Have nothing on any
children for them either time. Do you?

Good morning to th e list,
I'm off bone hunting as my aunt calls it. I found out last night that my
elusive grandfather and his family had lived in Long Eddy, so I checked
1900 Hancock sure enough, what I haven't been able to find in
over a year
there in front of me, Josiah Stevens (not Joseph) is my ggrandfather
66 in 1900, Minnie his wife and James my grandfather are in District
There is listed in the family bible and Eli Josiah and Edith and Ennas
Stevens. On the census it says they have 3 living children. Finally a
new clues!!! Does any one know of these folks? I have been posting
Joseph and Minnie, now I know Joseph should be josiah, maybe I'll
and find a miracle.
Minnie remarried Ira Ward in 1914, so Josiah must have passed away between
1900-1914. Anyhelp would be wonderful
