Note: I place Lizzie's death between 1920 and 1930 because at the age of 70 she is on the St. Paul, Wise County, Virginia 1920 Federal Census living with he husband, David, their two daughters and a son-in-law. On the 1930 federal census of the same location, 78 year old, David is living with his daughter Bernice, a housekeeper and a boarder, Lizzie is no longer listed and it is quite likely she passed away. -Jane

Notes

Note
Elizabeth Jane Ward Orr "Aunt Lizzie" corresponded with her neice Nellie Ward Lobdell almost continuously over such a long period of time. It was due to this extensive correspondence during the time Nellie was "tracing the family tree" that much of the information contained in this family history was gathered by the two of them. They quizzed other cousins and relatives by mail and then exchanged information. Equal credit should go to "Aunt Lizzie" for this fine body of data gathered first and second hand. -William E. Ward

LETTER

From Lizzie Ward to Monteville Ward 30 April 1863

BEGIN LETTER
__________________________________________________


Mexico
April 30th, 1863


Mr. Monteville Ward

Dear Cousin,

Again after waiting for months for a letter from some of you
I attempt to write you a short letter.
We have not heard from any of you for more than a year only through
the reports of other persons. We have written as I have several
times but cannot receiving an answer to any of my letters. I wrote to
Uncle twice you twice and cousin Amandaville once but none of you
think enough of us to write. This is positively the last I will write
until I receive at least one. I dreamed last night about you and
I thought I would write to you today. We are all in very good
except Mother. She has not had very good health for more than a
year. There are only four of us in the family now. Doctor Dave is not
allowed to stay at house now. I have not seen him for four months.
And I fear it will be a good many more months before he can have
the privileges of staying at homes unan________. Although I hope
it will not be long. I hope you are on the "right side" Cousin and
I believe you are. I would be sorry to think that any of any relatives
were for "Abe Lincoln" or any of his "Negro Thieves" I do not mean
by this that all that are in the Northern Army are Abolitionist
for I know there are as good Democrats in their as ever lived but
I mean those that uphold him and his cabinet in all their mean and
unlawful acts. I am a Democrat and ever expect to be.
I received a letter from Brother John last nite he is still in
California preaching. did not say anything about coming home.
I also heard from Cousin Jimmie Nichols he had just married. If you
received any of my letters you know that he was out here in 61 and
went back last year and married a young lady that went out at the
same time. We do not live in Mexico now live three miles north
of there, we have been living in the country at a year. do not like
to live here very much it is too lonely. I am teaching school now
a mile from home have a very interesting school. We have been expecting
some of you down fro a long time I think you might come down and
bring one of the girls.
I have been listening a long time to hear that you was married but I
guess you have concluded to be a bachelor. I have waited a long time
for you to bring that nice beaux that you promised me. We hold you
to your promises and shall look for you down soon with him he must
not be "Union" Well I must bring my letter to a close as it is nearly
schooltime and I hope you will excuse bad wording and everything that
is wrong for the children have been running over the floors hollering
and laughing so that I could scarcely write or think. "Honest Ingin"
if you don't answer this letter I most assuredly will never write
again. Father is very anxious to hear from you all not more than
myself be sure and write soon I want to hear from you so bad. Good
bye.

Your sincere Cousin,
Lizzie Ward

My letter if he ______ if he don't please tell him not to do it.
Tell uncle to answer. Be sure and write soon My love to all the
family

If you and one of your sisters will come down in July I will go home
with you. my school will be out then I shall look for you. be sure and
come. Hurrah! for Jeff D.

Write and tell me all the childrens news which of them are married and when
__________________________________

1856 Missouri State Census, Township 51, Audrain County, Missouri, USA, 3rd from the top of the page.

1 - Male under 10 ‎(Would be George Wallace, 2)‎
1 - Male of 10 and under 18 ‎( Would be David M.,16)‎
1 - Male 45 years and upward ‎(Would be Charles, 57)‎
2 - Females of 10 and under 18 ‎(Would be Elizabeth Jane, 11 & Mary Eugenia, 9)‎
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 with 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

I do not believe any of the persons Elizabeth Jane was living with were relatives. She probably was boarding with them to be close to the school where she was teaching. Her father Charles R. is listed on the same census also in Colusa County but living with her brother John Milton Ward.

Note
"As I Remember" by Lizzie Jane Estelle Ward Burnette

"...During the early years of their marriage, Grandfather Ward and his younger daughter Lizzie came from Missouri. Aunt Lizzie must have been a beautiful and charming woman. It was said 100 men proposed marriage to her. She married Dave Orr, a bar-tender. She taught and sent him to dental college. He later opened an office in Virginia. They had two daughters, Bernice and Erma. My brothers Edgar and CW corresponded with her for many years.
__________________________________________________
Death I place Lizzie's death between 1920 and 1930 because at the age of 70 she is on the St. Paul, Wise County, Virginia 1920 Federal Census living with he husband, David, their two daughters and a son-in-law. On the 1930 federal census of the same location, 78 year old, David is living with his daughter Bernice, a housekeeper and a boarder, Lizzie is no longer listed and it is quite likely she passed away. -Jane
