    MCDANIEL, NELSON, WARD posted by Tom Cotton on Thursday, May 21, 1998

    I have a puzzle in Pontotoc Co. MS 1835 - 1840. My gggfather Green B. WARD is listed in the 1840 -1845 Census records in this county. He is married to Elizabeth McDANIEL and in 1837 has his first son Hugh Nelson WARD. I can not find a marriage, land ownership, tax record or anything beyond the census record. I know after the 1845 census he leaves for KY, either Graves or Calloway Co. According to a census index I have the only McDaniel living in Pontotoc Co. is Samuel McDaniel Pg. 158 Pontotoc MS 1840 - 1845 NELSON, Calip page 11 Pontotoc MS 1840 - 1845 NELSON, George W. 11 Pontotoc MS 1840 - 1845 NELSON, Joshua 11 Pontotoc MS 1840 - 1845 The Nelson is a guess at a possible connection due to the naming of the first child Hugh Nelson WARD. I would appreciate any constructive suggestions on what I might search for to identify these individuals. BTW the only thing I have that indicates Elizabeth WARD, Green Berry WARD's wife is a McDANIEL is from information found in Polk Co. AR many years later. She could just as easily be a NELSON. Thanks in advance for any help. Tom

They are buried there but I don't know what cemetery. H.T. and Clementine had children name Ralph(my father), Henry E., Betty , Wiiliam M. and Jenny. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have any knowledge on the last four children. They all appear on an 1890 school census.I will share all info I have.

    James and Elizabeth BOSWELL are in Pontotoc co. 1850 census along with 10 children. Son James, age 6, is probably my gg grandfather James Lewis Clark Boswell who moved to Hill co. Tx in 1869 after the war. He served in 41st Miss. Inf. Also listed in census in another household are Joseph and Lucy BOSWELL, ages and place of birth make them right for James(Sr.) parents. Need connection information, relatives, cemetery, etc.
