Jonas Ward is the farthest I have confirmed on the Ward side. His gravestone shows that he fought in the war of 1812. The obit of his son says a grand father was in the Revolutionary War and fought in Yorktown and that another grandfather fought with Washington crossing the Delaware. We have established that Joshua DeWeese on his Mothers side was with Washington and lost a portion of his foot due to frostbite. But we have yet to prove who on the fathers side fought. A family Bible carried by Jonas in the war of 1812 states his father was named Jonas and his Mother Phebe and gives dates but we can find no record of these people except in that Bible.
Jonas married September 22, 1790 in Newark, Licking Co., Ohio to Elizabeth DeWeese.
