  • Notes 
    • On Jehu's death record it states his parents as James Hendry Ward and Amy Harvie but on his marriage record it states James and Ann as his parents. In 1902 when Jehu was married, both his parents would have been deceased, so he must have named his father and last step mother. 'Ann' is probably a derivative of 'Hannah', James last wife.

      He appears in a photo taken c. 1914 in the book 'Brooklyn in Retrospect' by Edith McGray
