BIOGRAPHY

Charles Rice Ward was born in Goochland County, Virginia on November 15, 1799 but moved with his parents to Franklin County, Kentucky in 1803 when he was only four years old. Fourteen years later, in 1817, the family moved farther west to Callaway County, Missouri.

Charles became a renowned blacksmith and owned a very successful smithy in Mexico, Audrain County, Missouri and was one of the original pioneer settlers of that town. The "History of Audrain County, Missouri mentions that his smithy was one of the first five buildings around the town square in 1851. It was made of logs. He was well-known throughout that frontier area as an accomplished maker of fine augers. "His augers were much sought after for their superior quality and he could hardly keep up with the demand which came from far and wide."

Charles R. Ward was a Democrat and voted in the 1822 election in Nine Mile Prairie Township, Callaway County, Missouri, U.S.A. Charles was a member of the Baptist religion. When his wife Jane died in 1865, daughter Elizabeth, age 20, took over the household duties for her Father who was then 66 but still active in his business. Approximately 10 years later, Charles and his still unmarried daughter Elizabeth Jane ventured across the prairies and mountains all the way out to California to live in the little town of Willows located 80 miles north of Sacramento where his oldest son Milton was a preacher. On May 10, 1869 the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific railroads joined their tracks at Promontory, Utah and so the two travelers probably rode the train from Missouri to Sacramento around 1875. Raiding Indians were a serious problem as were great buffalo herds and a few roving bands of brigands.

Elizabeth married David Fleming Orr, a dentist, on February 9, 1881 in Willows, California when she was 36 years old. Her Father, Charles, died 15 months later at age 82 on May 5, 1882 and was buried in Willows 1500 miles from his beloved wife Jane. Elizabeth's first daughter was born only 6 weeks later on June 17, 1882. To complete this odyssey, some years later Dr. Orr moved his wife and two daughters back to the midwest to set up a dental practice in Liberty, Missouri 18 miles north of Kansas City. After only a few years there, they moved to Moberly, Missouri just 45 miles from Mexico from whence Elizabeth and her Father had set out so many years before. The story comes full circle when Dr. and Mrs. Orr retired in their later years and moved to Big Stone Gap, Virginia, the state of her Father's birth!

Now father and daughter are buried 3,000 miles apart at opposite ends of this great country; and we think of today as the age of travel!

CENSUS

__________________________________________________
CENSUS RESEARCH NOTE
I found the following 1818 census record on Ancestry.com. Though it is not verified at this time I found it intriguing.

Name: Charles Ward
State: MO
County: Missouri County
Township: Petitioners
Year: 1818
Page: 018
Database: MO Early Census Index

There is and has never been a Missouri County that I can find. Missouri was a territory at the time of this census. More than likely Ancestry.com has a standard form for entry on their site and listed the territory under the heading "county" also there is and never has been a township named "Petitioners". Could the names of men have been taken from a petition? Perhaps the petition to make Missouri Territory a state? -Jane

1 - Female 45 years and upwards ‎(Would be Jane, 46)‎
6 - Number of free whites that can read and write

We had assumed Jane could not read or write because on an earlier document she had signed with an X. Perhaps somewhere between 1827 and 1856 she learned. Or this could be an error on the enumerators part as is the case of Mary Eugenia's age. She was 9 not 10.
Between the 1850 and 1856 census records we can see one of the male children seems to be missing this would be Montezuma. On the 1850 census we have John Milton we know he left for California in 1850. David M. who is accounted for in both census's. Charles William who died in 1853 at age 17. George Wallace was born in 1854 and we have an 1859 diary of John Milton's which shows he received word of George Wallaces death in November of 1859. George died in October. It took a month for the letter to catch up to John Milton a traveling preacher in California. So this leaves the missing male as Montezuma. He is listed on the 1850 census as 4 months old. Elizabeth Jane said he had died 1 June 1857. She must have the year of his death incorrect. I have changed his date of death to "before 1857." This date covers that he may have died in 1856 before the census was taken and after his birth in 1850. -Jane 13 May 2008

CIVIL WAR

Sometime between 1861 and 1862 the Ward family home in Mexico was burned by Federal soldiers. Per Elizabeth Jane Ward’s letter after the house burning in town the family lived 3 miles north of Mexico in the country. Elizabeth didn’t like it there it was “…too lonely”. Her letter is dated 30 April 1863 and in it she states , we have been living in the country at a year..,” She says there are only four of them now living as a family and that Dr. Dave hasn’t been around for four months and isn’t allowed to visit...
I suspect, “Dr. Dave is a nickname for her brother David M. Ward possibly derived from his knowledge and love of horses.
We know that at the beginning of the war he was in prison and after he was out he was accused of horse theft and being in collusion with a known southern sympathizer Joe Inlow. In his statement he says Joe Inlow keeps forcing himself on David and that David hasn’t associated with Joe since he ‎(David)‎ got out of prison. We also know that David’s father Charles R. Ward signed the Oath of Allegiance in Audrain County, Missouri May 10, 1862. For the most part only persons suspected and or known to be confederate sympathizers had to sign the oath. We know that Lizzie had a definite hatred for the union as stated in her letter. Did she echo her father\'s and her brother\'s sentiments? We know Charles was a democrat from Kentucky though we see no evidence of him or his father, John Ward, ever owning slaves. Was Charles accused of being a southern sympathizer or was his house burned because of his son\'s involvement with the confederates? Why wasn’t David allowed to come to the house in the country? Was this an edict by the Union or by his father? -Ellen
Jane
Further research needs to be done to discover more about the family\'s involvement during the war.

They had - William, Charles R., Matilda and Nancy. Mr. Word removed to Missouri in 1817, a nd settled in Callaway county. William, his eldest son, married Polly Rives, who after an affliction of seven years, went entirely blind. Charles R., now living, was a celebrated auger maker in his younger days. His augers were of such a superior qquality that he could not make them fast enough to supply the demand. He married Jane McCormack, and they had -- Nancy, John, Lucy, Martha, Charles W., James R., Margaret G., Mary E., Montezuma and George W.
‎(end excerpt)‎

In transcribing this excerpt I made every effort to type it exactly as the book has it. So yes, the book has the name as Word rather than Ward.
Many of the biographies and stories in this book were gathered by Bryan and Rose during interviews with locals and various family members who were alive during the writing of the book. Therefore the information is questionable as a source. But it does give us some leads as to where to look for information and it's a great read. - Jane, March 2007

OCCUPATIONS

BLACKSMITH
About 1845 Charles owned a very successful smithy/auger factory. Built of logs, Charles' smithy was one of the first 5 buildings around the town square.
Elizabeth Ward Orr knew her father was a blacksmith and passed this information on to Nellie Ward Lobdell ‎(WEW Manuscript)‎. This is backed up by the tertiary information found in "A History of Pioneer Families in Missouri" and "A History of Northeast Missouri". See Book Excerpts in the NOTES section below for further information. Also note Charles is listed as a Blacksmith on the 1850 and 1860 census.

LAND & PROPERTY

LAND PATENT
John Ward's land in Montgomery/Callaway County, Missouri 1819

John in 1819 agrees to purchase and pay for 160 acres of land an entire quarter section, "South East quarter of section No2 in Township 48 North in Range 8 West", by 1823.

On 28 May 1819 it says he paid up front 80.00 on 19 April 1819 and a certificate of the transaction is issued on 28 May 1819. This certificate states he is to make one payment per year of 80.00 until all is paid off in 1823. For a total of 320.00.

On the 22 of April 1820 John fills out the back of the original purchase certificate saying he is selling his quarter section of land to Charles for 80.00. But all is X'd out.

John died in 27 September 1828 and was buried 30 September 1828 ‎(per WEW manuscript of 1984)‎

In 1829 Charles Rice Ward and heirs receive what is titled "Final Certificate No. 1297 which is a payment record for the land.
The left side of this payment certificate states:
28 May 1819 E ½ SE ¼ 2 - 48.8W Date of purchase 28 May 1819, purchase money 160.00.
The right side of this payment certificate states:
28 May 1819 By cash 40.00
2 July 1829 By W1/2 SE ¼ 2 - 48-8W 40.00
" By Cash 50.00
" Discount 30.00
subtotal 80.00
Total Dollars 160.00
It then states that Charles R Ward and other heirs can turn in this certificate and receive the patent for the land.

??? 1 January 1830 a patent is issued for the East half of the South East quarter of section two in Township forty eight of Range Eight West containing 80 acres. ???

4 October 1836 Ward widow and relict of John Ward Dec’d Charles Ward and Jane his wife and William
Ward Mary his wife and Nancy Stewart of the County of Callaway… … sell unto the said Francis B. Garrett the following tract of land ‎[to wit]‎ the East half of the South East quarter of section No 2 in township No 48 North and Range 8 West containing eighty acres

According to the payment certificate John pays off the 80 acres of the east half of section 2 and in 1829 after John's death the family gets together and pays off the 80 acres of the west half of section 2. But receives the Patent certificate for only the 80 acres in the East half of the section.
If the East ½ was paid for in 1819 as stated and the West ½ is paid for by the heirs in 1829 why don't they get a patent for the whole thing or at least the West ½ they paid for???

I have searched the Bureau of Land Management and cannot find this property patent listed.

Further research in the archives will be necessary to solve this mystery. -Jane 25 March 2008
