End of the Line... for Now

New - 21 June 2010


The Mother of All Family Trees

Generations 163 -- 167 (almost 168)

End of the Line... for Now

 

We left off where Nancy Angeline and John Wesley had produced no fewer than eighteen (18) children between them. The birthdates themselves are a thing of wonder:

18 Dec 1874
13 Dec 1875
31 Dec 1876
08 Feb 1878
29 Aug 1879
27 Oct 1880
26 Jan 1882
12 Feb 1883
07 Feb 1884
04 Jun 1886
04 Jun 1886
25 Jan 1888
21 Jun 1889
07 Apr 1891
05 Sep 1892
27 Apr 1895
21 Oct 1896
16 Sep 1902

It is perhaps worth mentioning that Nancy Angeline was born April 2, 1857, and married John Wesley on March 12, 1874... and as it turns out, just three weeks before her 17th birthday. Then the new bride's first child arrived nine months and one week following the wedding. [Welcome to the world, Angeline!] She then averaged just under 14 months between pregnancies for the first eight children. Apparently, Sammy and William James were twins (or else there was a error in Sammy's birthday... in which case the 14 month separation was still intact). The next six pregnancies were on average just less than 21 months. The only obvious afterthought was Huber Elmer, born after the turn of the century. What is particularly impressive is that Angeline still managed to live until she was almost 86 years old... nicely bracketing the year 1900 by 43 years on either side. Apparently, being a baby factor is not necessarily a problem with living to a ripe old age. [An alternative view is that she produced babies for 29 years, and then took a 41 year break to recover.

The author was two years old when his great grandmother, Angeline, died... but somehow the news of his birth might have been largely ignored when one has 18 kids, easily 50 or so grand kids, and who knows how many great grandchildren!

In any case, Angeline's third child did continue the line that is of the current interest.

 

Generation No. 163

1. Martha Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carter [163] Nancy Angeline Sullivan (=John Wesley Carter )[162] William J. Sullivan (=Mary E. Harris) [161] William Thomas Sullivan (=Hariet C. Nichols) [160] John Sullivan (=Sarah Roberts) [159] Metoaka Bolling (=James Sullivan) [158] John Bolling (=Elizabeth Blair) [157] MAJOR Bolling (=Mary Kennon) [1-156]

Martha Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carter was born 31 December 1876 in Parker County, Texas, and died 3 September 1957 (at age 80) in Weatherford, Parker County, Texas.

Married James Nathaniel "J.N." Ward on 5 February 1899 in Texas. He was the son of Neal Ward and Sarah Howell, and was born on 29 November 1873 in Giles County, Tennessee, and died 25 December 1957 in Weatherford, Parker County, Texas.

Children

James Quincey Ward (born January 8, 1900 at Zion Hill)
Bertha Angeline (born and died April 10, 1903)
Herbert Ward (born August 15, 1905, just west of Weatherford, Texas)
John Clayton Ward (born April 1, 1908 on his parents' farm near Fox)

According to the 1920 census, both of LIzzie's parents were born in Texas. According to some family memories, Angeline -- or less likely, one of J.N.'s parents -- is thought to have been of American Indian heritage. Lizzie herself was born in Parker County, and resided there all of her life, living for many years on Dicey Road. One recollection of her funeral is by the author.

When grandmother Lizzie died, her funeral was attended by members of the families of her brothers and sisters, the large majority of whom my mother had never met! Mother, in fact, could not get over the number of Carters and former Carters running about the homestead on the Dicey Road. There was just a ton of people. When my grandfather died the following Christmas (on Christmas Day), on the other hand, there were very few mourners -- maybe a dozen or so at the most. It might have been the holidays, but I also suspect that he simply did not have the family connections that my grandmother did.

 

2. James Nathaniel "J.N." Ward [163] Neal Ward (=Sarah Howell) [162]

James Nathaniel "J.N." Ward was born in Tennessee around 1874. His father, Neal, was born in Ireland and his mother, Sarah Howell, was born in Tennessee. Neal, an Irish immigrant, served with the 10th Missouri Cavalry of the Union Army throughout the Civil War. In addition to James, Neal's children included John Calvin, William Walter, and Kate. After J. N.'s mother's death and his father's second marriage, there was a half-sister, Maggie Ann.

The tale of true love involving J. N. (James) and Lizzie is worth noting:

Henry Long, a cousin from Dicey, Texas, came to Tennessee hoping to take back his sweetheart. Her father, however, would not consent to the marriage until he promised to remain in Tennessee. Frustrated, but determined, Henry sold the unused part of his round-trip ticket to James for ten dollars - on credit. Meanwhile, Henry's mother was the only person in Texas James knew, but he arrived in Dicey January 12, 1893 (at the age of 19) to stay with the Dick Long's. His first job was clearing new ground for Bill Daniel but went to work for John L. Jones, just south of the Dicey Post Office, January 1, 1894.

Since school only operated during summer months in Tennessee, James had little schooling. So during the winter of 1895-96 (at the age of 22), he attended school at Clear Fork (in Dicey). R.A. Kell taught public school upstairs, and pay-school was taught downstairs by Rev. G.W. McGraw and William Calvin Jones. Having been taken into the Jones family, James was taught by his "brother" Cal both at Clear Fork and Robertson schools. With extra tutoring, he took the examination and got a third grade teaching certificate. From 1898 to 1906, he taught at Robertson at Bug Scuffle, Zion Hill, Peaster, Ray School (Toto), Grindstone, Weiland, Fox (at Beulah), and Authon. While teaching at Bug Scuffle, he met and married Lizzie at the home of her parents, on February 5, 1899.

[Okay! So it's not exactly a classic.]

Jim was appointed city letter carrier at Weatherford, November 1, 1908, serving until his retirement, December 1, 1938. Once while walking his route in the southeast part of town, he witnessed a high-speed police chase involving Bonnie and Clyde Barrow. In 1924, he was appointed to and served the Weatherford School Board seventeen years, being president when he retired.

Generation No. 164

1. James Quincy Ward [164] Martha Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carter (=James Nathaniel "J.N." Ward) [163] Nancy Angeline Sullivan (=John Wesley Carter )[162] William J. Sullivan (=Mary E. Harris) [161] William Thomas Sullivan (=Hariet C. Nichols) [160] John Sullivan (=Sarah Roberts) [159] Metoaka Bolling (=James Sullivan) [158] John Bolling (=Elizabeth Blair) [157] MAJOR Bolling (=Mary Kennon) [1-156]

James Quincy Ward was born 8 Jan 1900 in Zion Hill, Texas, and died 11 May 1991 in Yolo, California. He married Mary. After a brief business venture with his brother Herbert in Amarillo, Quincy became a postal clerk in Topeka (Kansas). He and Mary had one son, believed to be Joe Quincy Ward.

 

2. Herbert Ward [164] Martha Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carter (=James Nathaniel "J.N." Ward) [163] Nancy Angeline Sullivan (=John Wesley Carter )[162] William J. Sullivan (=Mary E. Harris) [161] William Thomas Sullivan (=Hariet C. Nichols) [160] John Sullivan (=Sarah Roberts) [159] Metoaka Bolling (=James Sullivan) [158] John Bolling (=Elizabeth Blair) [157] MAJOR Bolling (=Mary Kennon) [1-156]

Herbert Ward was born 15 August 1905 in Weatherford, Texas, and died 07 February 1989 in Vista, San Diego, California. He married Constance. She was born about 1910. They had two children, Gwendolyn and a son. In 1930, they were living in Chicago, Illinois.

Gwendolyn, as a small child, was known by her cousins to cry whenever she found her mother in another room... even if "Gwennie" had been the one to change rooms. The trait was so instilled that her cousin, Mary Ann (Clayton's daughter), named a sheep of hers, "Gwennie", because as a lamb, the sheep was constantly wandering off and crying for her mother. One morning, when Gwennie's father, Herbert, had unexpectedly visited, Mary Ann came running into the dining room, announcing to everyone that "Gwennie had a lamb!". That's when she saw her Uncle Herbert, who took the news... really quite well.

 

3. John Clayton Ward [164] Martha Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carter (=James Nathaniel "J.N." Ward) [163] Nancy Angeline Sullivan (=John Wesley Carter )[162] William J. Sullivan (=Mary E. Harris) [161] William Thomas Sullivan (=Hariet C. Nichols) [160] John Sullivan (=Sarah Roberts) [159] Metoaka Bolling (=James Sullivan) [158] John Bolling (=Elizabeth Blair) [157] MAJOR Bolling (=Mary Kennon) [1-156]

John Clayton Ward was born 1 Apr 1908 in Weatherford, Parker County, Texas, and died 10 Jan 1954 in Jacksboro, Texas. Clayton was for a good part of his professional life, an oil and gas entrepreneur -- buying, selling, and dealing with oil and gas leases. This is where he made enough money to build a home in Jacksboro (even though he had to borrow money from the D.R. Sewell Lumber Company -- owned by his wife's father).

Married Mary Elda Sewell 23 July 1933 in Jacksboro, Texas, daughter of Dan Roland Sewell and Elda Bryson. (Ah, after a 150 generations or so... an Elda -- named after Eve of Elda?)

Children

John ("Jack") Clayton Ward, Jr.
Mary Ann Ward
Dan Sewell Ward (the Hero of our Tale... finally!)

According to Clayton's wife, Mary Elda, in her book, Back Then, and Now:

"We (Mary Elda and Clayton) met in Austin in September of 1931 where we had both gone to work on advanced degrees in chemistry. He had received his BS in chemical engineering from A&M the previous June, and I had received a BA in chemistry from the University of Texas at the same time. Our first meeting was in an advanced organic chemistry laboratory where we were assigned desks in alphabetical order so that Ward was next to Sewell. I looked at the names on the reagent bottles when he was out of the room, and he did the same on mine.

As we started talking we found that we were from neighboring towns, Weatherford and Jacksboro. Then when he learned that I had been given a Chevrolet coupe upon receiving my degree, we talked about plans to come home together at the first break, Thanksgiving.

Clayton was trying to go to the University on a shoestring, and he had planned to finance his way by gambling, at which he was quite adept and had been successful doing this at A&M. Unfortunately, he had fallen in with some professionals, and, after losing his shirt, he decided to give it up. He and his roommate, Ralph, who had also finished at A&M, were both working on a master's degree in chemical engineering, and they had found a nice place to live, paying $10.00 a month, and a place to eat that was cheap.

Clayton died relatively young. The cause of his death was always listed as a heart attack... but in reality he had been playing poker with several card sharks, who had used their knowledge of his weakness with regard to alcohol to get him drunk and then fleece him. They brought him home, carried him to his bed, and he died a few hours later. In effect, he had been murdered (presumably manslaughter).

 

4. Mary Elda Sewell [164] Dan Roland Sewell (=Elda Bryson) [163]

Mary Elda Sewell was born February 27, 1910, in Jacksboro, the daughter of Dan Roland Sewell and Elda Ann (Bryson) Sewell. The Dan Roland Sewell family tree has been researched by his great granddaughter, Shari Lynn Berens, and is shown here. Of particular note is the fact that Dan Roland's father Alfred Eugene Sewell [162] at one point disowned his family for their failure to care for his mother and her children after his father's death. Accordingly, little is known of the Sewell heritage beyond Generation No. 162, and Alfred's parents, John M. Sewell and Alice Ann Buggy.

Dan Roland's mother, Louisa Annie Whedbee [162}, however, can trace her Whedbee heritage back to 1608, to one Richard Whedbee, who was living in Virginia at the time. It would appear that his parents were probably born overseas... making their heritage a bit more obscure to the casual observer. Elda Anne's Bryson lineage, meanwhile, goes back to 1749, where a Time Bryson immigrated from Ireland.

A family memory of Louisa Annie Whedbee is that she had one point purchased a very expensive (at the time) watch. She had in fact agonized over the idea of such an expenditure, but ultimately took the plunge. The event has since been memorialized by her family as "The Louisa Annie Purchase".


Generation No. 165

1. Dr. John "Jack" Clayton Ward, Jr. [165] Martha Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carter (=James Nathaniel "J.N." Ward) [163] Nancy Angeline Sullivan (=John Wesley Carter )[162] William J. Sullivan (=Mary E. Harris) [161] William Thomas Sullivan (=Hariet C. Nichols) [160] John Sullivan (=Sarah Roberts) [159] Metoaka Bolling (=James Sullivan) [158] John Bolling (=Elizabeth Blair) [157] MAJOR Bolling (=Mary Kennon) [1-156]

Dr. John Clayton "Jack" Ward, Jr. was born 23 July 1934 in Fort Worth, Texas, and died 25 February 2008 in Port Angeles, Washington. He married (1) Patricia Slaton June 1957. She was born 20 Nov 1934 in Jacksboro, Texas?. He married (2) Myra Herbst Whitfield about 1977. She was born 8 Apr 1942. By his first wife, he had two children: Michelle Annette Ward and John Clayton Ward, III.

Some remembrances from his younger brother include:

I remember you taught me to ride my first bike, even when the only way I could stop was to slow down, aim it at some obstacle like a tree and then jump off. You also taught me to drive a car, in this case using your world famous orange jeep. The good news was that to stop the jeep I did not have to aim it at a tree and then jump out, but instead learned early on where the brake pedal was located. I recall vividly the day when you first took me out to drive along the dirt road from the highway to the old quarry. I was distractedly trying to shift gears (which were of course on the floor board) and had begun driving off the road into the bushes, when you grabbed the steering wheel and corrected the situation. Thanks for the driving lessons.

There was also the time in Fort Worth when the three of us had to run like hell in order to avoid some guys who wanted to beat you up. You were driving without lights down one of the streets of your paper route (where you knew the street by rote). The street was full of potholes and you knew where every single one was. We lost them when they began hitting the rough spots. Thanks for that little adventure.

As I recall you got the orange jeep after injuring your leg on your paper route. After that the jeep was all part of the legend – including the times in Colorado, where once you and Mary Ann got way ahead on the trip home, and the rest of the family had to find you on the road – with the help of the highway patrol. There was also the time you and a friend, Mary Ann and I were driving the orange jeep in a Colorado field. You and the other guy were jumping out, running alongside, and then switching places driving. Mary Ann had to hold the steering wheel and press the accelerator so that we never had to slow down. Then Mary Ann, from the passenger seat, gunned it when the two of you were running alongside and left the two of you standing in the field with the most amazed expressions imaginable. Thanks for that memory.

I suspect you got Mary Ann back and then some on the day in Fort Worth the four of us were about to go someplace, and there loomed the inevitable conflict as to who would get to ride in the front passenger’s seat. Usually it was first come, first serve. You first locked the screen door (which was never locked), included me in your little plot, and then started a stampede for the door by announcing you were going to get it. You fell down, followed by me (all according to your plan), and as Mary Ann yelled victoriously, “I’m going to get it!” she slammed into the screen door at full speed. The screen bulged out, but the little latch was enough to hold it. Mary Ann was totally blindsided, bouncing off the screen and staggering back in a daze. The best part was that Mother didn’t punish either one of us. Perhaps the reason for our getting off Scot-free was that it wasn’t clear who locked the screen door, and more importantly Mary Ann should not have been running to the car in the first place. It was a classic plan of yours. Thanks for including me.

There were also the demolition derbies we went to as kids – including the time the guy with polio kept turning on the car to honk the horn, and at the end the battery was dead. The car was a Cadillac convertible, so even then it was an adventure.

There was the time you took me out on the Bridgeport highway so I could hike back – a ten-mile hike -- in order to help me earn my Boy Scout hiking merit badge. I remember you insisting on exactly ten miles, which put me about two thirds of the way down a very long and steep hill. I got to begin my hike by hiking back up. While my two Dr. Peppers were quickly gone, I still made it.

Obviously, more than childhood was included. From the time I visited you in Norman, Oklahoma and stayed at your fraternity house (and missed the train after oversleeping), until the time I brought back a load of your furniture from Fayetteville in the old GMC truck. Of course, after the long drive, I had forgotten about the table on top with its legs sticking up… until I drove the car into the garage, neatly breaking all four legs. I recall that your mother-in-law was really pissed off about that one! I don’t think you cared.

I also wanted to thank you for giving me your collection of Pogo Possum books. I still have them in an honored location in my living room. They really are something.

The really big favor, of course, was your assisting me in obtaining a job at Colorado State University after I had received my Ph.D. Having spent four and a half years in the Navy had moved me from four years ahead of the baby boom to the leading edge of it. I would probably have never found a job in academia had it not been for you. Thanks very much.

What was amazing was the amount of cooperative work we did in the solar energy field. Those were some great times. It’s too bad that I was never able to work my way into the physics department and thereby get on a tenure track, but the time I did spend at the university had ultimately paid me a lot of dividends. Thanks for the collaborations.

I am also very appreciative of being occasionally included in your monthly poker games with your friends. There are a lot of stories to be told on this subject, but perhaps we’d better keep those to ourselves.

The stories could go on for some time to come, but hopefully what I’ve written thus far will be enough to make my point clear that I really do appreciate all of the ways in which you’ve acted as my big brother. When all is said and done, these are memories that no one can take from us. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

... and now... DRUM ROLL, PLEASE... for the brilliant conclusion of our quest:

 

Generation No. 165 (continued)

Dan Sewell Ward [164] Martha Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carter (=James Nathaniel "J.N." Ward) [163] Nancy Angeline Sullivan (=John Wesley Carter )[162] William J. Sullivan (=Mary E. Harris) [161] William Thomas Sullivan (=Hariet C. Nichols) [160] John Sullivan (=Sarah Roberts) [159] Metoaka Bolling (=James Sullivan) [158] John Bolling (=Elizabeth Blair) [157] MAJOR Bolling (=Mary Kennon) [1-156]

Dan Sewell Ward was... well... we'll have to wait for the auto-biography (due sometime prior to December 21, 2012!0.

Well... okay... just a little bit (there are several people looking to see their names in print):

Married:

(1) Carol Anne Genzer, daughter of William Adolph Genzer and "Baby Anne" Quattlebaum (By special request... i.e., threat of a lawsuit... Carol's birthday has not been given.)
(2) Lucie Blanchard (common law marriage)
(3) Merrilee Cleveland, daughter of Russell Earl Cleveland and Marilyn Martha Walters (Merrilee is the lady whose ancestors allegedly came over on the Mayflower.)

In the interests of privacy for Dan's three children, nine grandchildren... and at last count, one great grandchild, names are omitted here. For the most part, they know who they are.

In brief, Dan Sewell Ward (who prefers being known as Daniel Sewell DocPtah Ward) has been referred to as a "Renaissance Man", highly creative and with diverse interests. Formal education includes a Bachelor of Engineering Science, and a Ph.D. (Doctorate) in Nuclear Physics, as well as being certified as a Financial Planner and secondary school teaching (Colorado). He has written and presented workshops and lectures on subjects ranging from astronomy and astrology, humor and goddess related subjects, solar energy and connective physics, consciousness and sacred mathematics, crop circles and ancient histories, writing and advanced educational techniques… to new energy, advanced propulsion techniques, and sonoluminesence – just to mention a few of the diverse topics in which he has acquired some degree of expertise. He has written five non-fiction popular and/or scientific books, seven novels, four screenplays (and one tele play), six stage plays, along with numerous short stories and poetry.

The extent of his interests in a wide range of subjects is best exemplified in his website: The Library of Halexandria. This website has nearly 1000 separate web pages - each web page constituting anything from one to thirty typewritten pages - and typically receives each month two to three million "hits" (a "hit" being a single visit to a single web page by a single visitor).

Dan’s philosophy can be encapsulated in the realization that everything in the universe is connected and that there are absolutely no limits (other than possibly universal ones). He has been able to prove these two statements in a mathematically precise way. He has also claimed that the purpose of life on earth is to gather material for a stand up comic routine later on. He believes anything, from a distance of time and/or space, is laughable.

"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set ye free." But when ye first learn the truth, you are likely to be really upset. Get ye over it. Thereafter, seek the humor in it. -- January 10, 2004

For more, see his Resume... and the Halexandria website.

or the variation off into the Sumerian:

Dan Sewell Ward [164] ...as before... Abraham [26] Terah [25] Nahor [24] Serug [23] Ora [22] UR-NAMMU [21] UTU-KHEGAL [20] SHAR-KALI-SHARI [19] NARAM-SIN [18] MANISHTUSU [17] RIMUSH [16] Sargon I - The Great [15] LUGAL-ZAGGWE-SI [14] LUGAL-KINISHE-DUDU [13] LUGAL-KI-TUN [12] MELAM-ANNA [11] MES-HE [10] E-NUN-DARA-ANNA [9] LABBA [...] -IR [8] UTU-KALAMMA [7] UR-NUNGAL [6] GILGAMESH [5] DUMU-ZI II [4] LUGAL-BANDA [3] EN-MERKAR [2] MES-KI-AGGA-SHER [1]

or finally... and even better... although... admittedly... perhaps just a bit more in the speculative realm (i.e. completely unfounded), we have:

Daniel Sewell DocPtah Ward [165] Enki (=Mary Elda) [5] Anu and Antu [4] Anshar and Kishar [3] Lahmu and Lahamu [2] Tiamat and Absu [1]

Okay. So the latter which pretty makes the entire MOAFT somewhat pointless... except as a history lesson. On the other hand, it has a simplicity and straight forward quality that is very appealing. It would also explain a lot about... well... moi.
