|George Washington Ward|
Daniel Hargett Ward (1871-1948) was born in Swansboro to George Washington Ward and Hester Rebecca Gibson. The Ward family had been in the Onslow County area since the 18th century. Daniel's grandfather George W. Ward (1795-1863) married Olive Sanders, daughter of John Sanders and Mary Ann Burns of Onslow County. Daniel married Bettie Ann Stanley of Carteret County. He captained Madison--a line boat between Swansboro and Morehead City. The 1920 census noted Daniel and Bettie on Water Street with children: Mabel 22, Carrie 19, Vincent 16, Minnie 14 and Cora 7. Ward listed his occupation as "transportation boatman." By 1930 his residence was in Morehead City.
