  • Notes 
    • Amy was widowed at age 43. At age 48 she was baptized on October 4,
      1840. She was born a Baptist so it appears that she converted to
      Anglican when she married Robert but wasn't baptized as such until
      after his death.
      Amy Ward is listed in the 1871 Hants County census as 79 years old, at household a 0 0 which means she had already died within 12 months of the census.
