Descendants of Timothy WARD
(Donald L. Ward’s direct descendants in Bold)
1. Timothy WARD: b. 10 March, 1760, Newark TownshipEssex Co., N.J.; d. 3 June, 1845, in Pike Township of Dearborn Co., IN. This is now part of Ohio Co, IN. Bur. in Olive Branch Graveyard. Notes and information on Timothy and Elizabeth Ward and their children are taken from Family Tree Maker Disc, Vol. 10, Tree 2402.
Notes for Timothy Ward: Parents unkown. Timothy was a soldier in the American Revolutionary War, having served at various times for three years. When he entered the service, he volunteered as a musician. He was in the engagements at Second River, Connecticut Farms, Springfield and Elizabeth Town. He served under Capts. Squire, Reeves, Camp, Lyon, Ogden and Condit. At one time he helped take 16 British prisoners.
He and his wife had their first six or seven children in New Jersey and then relocated to Allegheny Co., PA. A division of Allegheny Co. became Butler Co., PA and this is where they are in the 1800 and 1810 Census. Timothy Ward is listed among the first settlers in Butler Co. between 1794 and 1800, according to “Adams Township: History of Butler County, PA.” It appears that Elizabeth died while they lived in PA, but the date of death and burial site are unknown.
The lands in Ohio and Indiana were opening up for settlement about this time, so Timothy’s married children began moving on. Timothy moved on to Brown Co., OH and finally to Dearborn Co., IN after 1820. Timothy applied for a Revolutionary War pension while living in Dearborn Co. His claim was granted on Aug. 14, 1832.
Description of the times in Essex Co., NJ (from Familysearch.com): The Dutch set up trading posts in northern New Jersey in the 1620s, and Swedish and Finnish settlements were established along the Delaware River in the 1630s. During the colonial era, New Jersey was ruled by England. Indian disputes, epidemics, climate, religious views, and the availability of land influenced people to move into or out of New Jersey. Church, court, and land records were kept from the time an area was settled. People who lived in the 1700s may appear in Revolutionary War records and some federal census records.
+ Elizabeth Hannah Zeluff: b. about 1762, Newark, Essex Co., N.J.; m. 22 Jan., 1782, in Hanover Presbyterian Church, Morris Co., N.J. (Source: Records of Hanover Presbyterian Church, p112.
Notes for Elizabeth Hannah Zeluff: Elizabeth Zeluff and Hannah Zelop appear to be the same person. The name Zeluff has been spelled Zeluff, Zeloff, Zeliffe in various records but each spelling appears to be the same surname, which is probably Dutch in origin. She is from a Dutch family who lived on Staten Island. Her family can be traced back to the earliest Dutch families who settled in New Amsterdam.
Notes for Timothy Ward: Pike Township, Ohio County, Indiana, was formed from Caesar’s Creek and Union Townships of Dearborn County. The Olive Branch Baptist Church was formed about 1838 and has a large burying ground. Many of those buried were early members of the church. Among those buried were Timothy Ward, who died in 1870 at age 77, and Rebecca Ward, who died in 1871 at age 73.
