  1. Florence Ward was my grandmother and she was the sister of Elijah Ward, not his wife. Florence died in March of 1976. She was married to John Bynum.

  2. Ms. Henderson, you are doing an outstanding job of researching the rich history of Wilson and Stantonsburg! My sister Valerie, brother Eric and I will be traveling there in June to explore and seek further information about our families.

    1. Enjoy your visit! I’ll keep an eye out for any records related to the family, and if you have pre-World War II photos to share, I’d love to feature them here!
