Here is what I have taken off the Internet on the family of John Ward who is
said to be a son of a Thomas Ward. I have no proof of any of this, but most
of it fits. I have seen Riley spelled both ways. That is not uncommon in
genealogy as census takers and others spelled by sound. I like Riley as that
is how our Ward family spelled it.
