Re: Anson Co.,NC WARDS;
Maybe we are researching the same Wards??

My ancestor, Mercer/Messer WARD, lived in Anson Co., NC, and also in
Edgecombe Co.,NC.
----

In records from Edgecombe Co.,NC I found a will witnessed by John Ward;

John Mobley- Edgecombe County- 05 Aug 1752
- May 1753
Will
Sons: John, Mordeca and Edward (one negro each). Brother: Edward Mobley.
Nephew: Samuel Mobley (one negro). Wife and Executrix: Rachell (two
negroes). Executor: Edward Mobley (son). Witnesses: John Williams, John
Ward, Lewis, Atkins. Clerk of the Court: Benj'n Wynns
---------

This John Ward was witnessing a will in 1752 so he must have been
born before 1730, maybe even much earlier.
(was he the father of my Mercer/Messer Ward or grandfather or something??)
------


AUGUST, 1786:
At a County Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions held for said county at the Court

Mercer WARD,
