Bio Photo Texan by birth and heritage.

Genealogy seems to run in our bloodlines, my father, David Martin Ward Sr. spent as many years, if not more, researching his bloodlines. DNA brought us a surprise or two, but there is nothing like having the blood bear out research!

Parents of Marie Marthe Chauvin
In Jacqueline Olivier Vidrine's "Love's Legacy" on page 105:

30 January 1736 one bann published, dispensed with two banns. Jean Gregoire Volant and Marthe Chauvin, widow of VALENTIN DEVIN, daughter of deceased JACQUES CHAUVIN AND MARIE ANNE LAVERGNE.
Mob.mb 1:14a-1

There is a second entry on page 345n:

Valentin Devin married Marthe Chauvin before 1732. He died in June 1735. A son named Valentin was baptized in 1734. 1:77k86,103. 112'gn 2"45,51

This is the proof that Marie Marthe Chauvin's parents are not the ones listed on this FindAGrave.

John Ward
Kelley. John Ward the son of Luke and Bridgett Ward died in 1846, Ark. He married Roxie nick name, Kornegay. MY 4th ggrandfather was Luke Thomas Ward jr. born 1752 Duplin Co. N.C. he died 1821,Hempstead Co. Ark. I think you have the wrong lines attach to my Bridgett Draughon Ward who is my 5ht ggrandmother. I have her fathers will also. Both Luke SR. and Bridgett have the same children listed in their wills. My 4th ggrandfather is mention in both. Sorry, but you need to correct this as soon as possible.

Luke Thomas Ward
Hello, I would like to know who establish the lines of My 5th ggrandfather. Luke Did marry Bridgett Ward who is the daughter of Walter Draughon. According to the records of the other wives you have the dates of his children and the dates of the other children you have and marriages do not add up at all. Would like to see how you came about this with proof. I have research many Wards lines and know them well. I have luke Ward;s will and there is not any other children listed in his will at all. His true date of birth has never been establish. The Thomas Ward who married one of your wives listed here is of the Michael Ward line. I have Bridgett Draughon Wards will .Probate is 1825. There where three Thomas Wards who died in 1796 Bertie. Co. Luke Thomas Ward died in May of 1796. I cannot express how important that the correct information be posted on the www.findagrave because it certainly can sure miss lead many people.

Now looking at #60972038.
Appreciate your efforts to add info to f-a-g. However, if your are not adding a tombstone as verification, PLEASE add the source for your data. There is so much wrong info out there (which is copied ad infinitum) that we need a source to be able to validate your info.
Thank you.

John Alkire Grave
Find A Grave Memorial# 60627469

Do you have a location in the cemetery for this grave? Other family members are buried "up on the hill" where the old Fisher Cemetery was located. I haven't seen an Alkire grave there so...any help is appreciated!
