In June 1865 she was married to William Ward, a neighboring son of another pioneer family, who lived to the age of 75 and predeceased her in August 1914.
Surviving are three sons and two daughters: Benjamin, of White Court, Alberta; William H., formerly of Watford, and Russell, on the homestead; Mrs. Albert Routley, Watford, and Mrs. Bert E. Gray, of Pontiac; also six brothers and one sister: Henry and William Williamson, of Watford; Charles of Petrolia; Andrew, in Dakota; Joseph and James in Alberta, and Mrs. John Bryce, Saskatoon. In the younger generation to revere her memory there are 22 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.
Interment was in Wisbeach cemetery, the pallbearers being six neighbors and friends: Ed. Clark, S. B. Chambers, Davis Hamilton, John McIntosh, James Harrower and S. E. Thompson.
