Notes

Note
"Lucy Rice was just 15 years old the day the Revolutionary War ended in 1782 - she said she could not eat or do anything that day but walk from place to place. Her two brothers William & Holman were in the Army..." ‎(Holman had been taken prisoner of war at one time.)‎ - William E Ward

This and other familial information is in Nellie Ward Lobdell's notes. It was passed on to her by her Aunt Elizabeth Ward daughter of Charles Rice Ward, son of Lucy. All of Charles family papers were lost during a fire. This was probably when the Federals burnt the family home in Mexico, Audrain County, Missouri during the Civil War.

During the time Nellie was researching the family she and Elizabeth corresponded regularly with each other and other family members. Together they collected a great deal of information and formed the base of this family's record.

Unfortunately because of the fire all of the information is "unconfirmed" Elizabeth had to rely on hers and her fathers memory for information about Lucy. It is now up to us to find documentation and confirm the information left to us by Nellie an d Elizabeth. -Jane, 7 March 2008

Though I have left it in the transcription I do not believe the date enclosed in bold type was an original part of the document. It looks like the same handwriting of the 1988 clerk that had made notes at the top of the page. Also note after each w itness name there is a squiggle that represents the word seal. Sometimes in these old documents you see the word seal written very clearly with a little cloud around them and other times they are represented by the various clerks artistic squiggles .
William E. Ward had in his possession a transcription of this document. We were very happy to receive from "Cheryl" the digital image of the actual document in late 2007.
