      James Ward and Elizabeth Jones were married 13 December 1832. 
James Ward was born 5 Feb 1770, the son of Thomas Ward and his wife Pheraby Hill,  near Powellsville in Bertie Co, NC .  
He married first on 27 February 1790, Delilah  Freeman, daughter of John Freeman.

Recorded in James Ward's Bible now in the possession of Michael Moore.
 James Ward was a Deacon of Colerain (Wiccacon) Baptist  Church. 
 He was a Justice of the Peace for Bertie County.
He purchased "Maple Lawn" from his brother-in-law James Sidney Jones III when  Jones moved to Alabama (originally the overseer's home, Jones had rebuilt it in 1828 as a home for his mother, his sisters and himself.)

after the home of Augustus Bass and his wife Celia Brittain burned in 1857 
Ann Ward and John W Moore traded them the Ward place with the house 
for  property joining our farm Maple Lawn that my father called the Bass field.
John and Ann Moore were already living in their mansion in Murfreesboro
 and Elizabeth and James Delk moved out to Maple Lawn about that time.
