WARD in Fayette County, GA

Please consider donating anything you have on this surname to be added here!

My plan for this database is to consolidate all known information about this particular surname in Fayette County so that it will be easier to connect (or not) these families. It will only work with everyone's input - for instance, if you have knowledge or information showing that any of the individuals listed separately are the same as another with the same name, then please let me know.  By consolidating the first names it should help all researchers. The data here is a compilation of everything found on the Fayette County GAGenWeb site, the Fayette County USGenWeb Archives and that found in my own research.
