I can find nothing on her or whatever happened to her. When did they show up in Florida?

    I have not seen the Obit. I have seen the cemetery records.
    Franklin,

    James Beverly Ward and Harriet Otey had nine children and 8 are accounted for in the Obituary. A son James Beverly Ward died in 1856 of an accidental gun shot wound. Maybe you and ECS can sort them our from the obit.

    It isn't easy and I need to review what I have so I'm not messing something up once again.

    Below is a link on Findagrave for Ella and Alanson

    Her husband Allanson N. sometimes shows up as Noble Caulkins.

    They show up in the 1880 census in Santa Rosa County, Flordia. (I'm not sure if they were there much earlier)

    I'll get back and we can all compare what we have each come up with regarding the details of James & Harriet Ward's family.

    Right now I have Annie Morris Ward married to Frank Johnson and Julia Herbert Ward married to William Dudley Johns.

    There should be an obituary of Robert Morriss in the Bedford Newspapers but I have not found any? Since Robert Morriss died in Bedford County and not in Lynchburg, Va.

    Maybe under another name...? Look for DOD/Year of Death (YOD); 1863.

    ECS,

    I was able to find your information although I’m not sure it was from the same source?

    A Genealogy of the Buford Family in America with Records of a Number of Allied Families by Marcus Bainbridge Buford, Page 136, 137 and 138. Published in 1903.

    Marcus added two children, I didn’t have, whom he indicates died young, Ferdinand Kennerly Ward and May Beverly Ward. Although I am loathe to blindly accept information in a family tree, but in this case, the last generations were still living when he gathered the information. The only hiccup I have is that he names James Beverly Ward’s wife as both Harriet C. and Harriet O. We have her as Harriet Emuline.

    I went ahead and added the two children along with a couple of wives and also a couple of marriage dates to my Beale Searcher’s Tree. I think everything else that I had was pretty much in agreement with his information.

    Thanks,

    Garry

    My wife and I just returned from a trip back east that included Virginia. We spent about a week between Roanoke and Richmond and I did cajole her into some research in the area. Libraries, Courthouses, etc.

    With some clues that Rebel posted, we were also able to find a map that hints at the Beale Treasure location.

    We didn’t find the Beale Treasure but you know gold is where you find it and we were able to locate some shown below.

    Franklin, when did these events that you mention that are connected to the Beale Papers occur?
    you mean Beale was copyrighted in 1884 and published in 1885?

    just wondering when you think these events occurred?
    But he who knows forms, is able to grasp the unity of nature beneath the surface of materials which are very unlike. Thus is he able to identify and bring about things that have never been done before, things of the kind which neither the vicissitudes of nature, nor hard experimenting, nor pure accident could ever have actualized, nor even human thought dreamed of. And thus from the discovery of the forms flows true speculation and unrestricted operation.

A person of interest that purchased one half the property of James B. Ward's Hunter's Hill Plantation had whole files missing from court records. Then I found out why they were missing. This is a continuing search and I am once again having fun trying to solve this mystery.

    A landowner is hiding out from the IRS for taxes in Virginia and is then working for the IRS in Washington City. The trustee is taking care of his family and he writes letters to him like they are Knight's of the Golden Circle. He buys their groceries, clothes and even pays their bills sometimes with his own money. The rich families of Danville, Virginia are all involved. Then there are judges and even US Supreme Court is involved. Fights over a half acre of land with three bankers from Richmond purchasing one half right through the center of a Church and again the rich families of Danville are trustees to the church and it is a black fellowship church. Why would a bond of $10000 have to be put in place for such a small location. Again the trustee is involved. It all just keeps unraveling and I am wide eyed reading it. I love a mystery.

    I was reading up on a person that claimed to have solved the Beale out towards Danville where they claimed it was off the trail near a creek up that way.....in a canyon to the east of the river.....

    Its interesting that you show there is some juggling about properties there and that there is some finagling going on still to this day over a property that was made into a non-entity from the missing records......

    As far as the gold and silver in Danville, Va. I know where all of it is located but it can not be dug up. It is in three different locations. I have the compass readings and the distance, also the depth to two of the gold caches. I have the location of the silver Mexican Dollars also but only the location and depth, no compass readings or distance needed.

    But as for the Beale Treasure, I have not figured out whether it leads to a real treasure or was a diversion away from the real treasures. However there is a Buford's in Danville that leads to a large under-ground vault but I do not know what is buried in it?

    As Rebel-KGC pointed out on post#4 and as I clarified on post #5 admitting that I typed the wrong dates.
    You can stop your wondering over this typo.

    I dont take orders from you ECS.....sorry you were lost in the hundreds of solutions and their confusing dates....
