|Birth: ||Jul. 1, 1866|
|Death: ||Nov. 16, 1944|
Mrs Ward was 78 year 4 months and 15 days old when she passed away. She was married and owned her own home at Rt 3, Box 236 Crockett. She had lived there for 32 years.
The informant on her death certificate was John Ward at the same address. He did not know her parents names or place of birth.
Mrs. Ward was one of Houston County's midwives. We find her delivering a baby in 1931 in the Halls Bluff Community or maybe Wheeler Springs, address of the family Route 3 Crockett, so it could have been either community. Mrs. Ward delivered several of French Taylor's children.
Her first delivery on record we find was 1917.

Julie Leonard, David Murphy, Hallie Murphy, Charles Dawson and I surveyed and photographed all of Old Cedar Branch on July 1, 2013. We did not find a headstone marking this grave, all except I have relatives buried here and Charles remembers as a child and young man coming to this lovely old cemetery, not far from the banks of the Trinity River, and knew were many of the family plots and rows are. Carol Hoch was Johnson.
