Elizabeth Ward
4/18/1826 - 12/17/1908
(Shown at age 69)
Elizabeth Ward was born on April 18, 1826 in Dale County, Alabama and died on December 17, 1908 in Geneva County, Alabama. Dates for birth and death are estimated. He lived to be about 82 years old.

Many researchers beleive Elizabeth Ward White is the missing daughter of James B. Ward and Elizabeth English Ward. She would have married and left her parent's home before the 1850 Census recorded her name as one of their children. The 1830 and 1840 Census counted children by age group and did not enumerate them by name.

Additional information about Dale County, AL around 1830: Dale County was established on December 22, 1824, from lands now found in Coffee, Geneva, and Houston counties.
