Interactive Map for Ward ...

A word of caution: Our map has been provided by Google and while we prefer Google maps, there can be issues with accuracy. We've provided this map to help you explore this area, but you should compare against other maps if you require accuracy.

We've tried other mapping services, but they all have issues. That said, we haven't found a mapping service that is consistently better than Google's. Until we can find more accurate maps, we'll continue with Google.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Ward and then turned east". While Ward could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Ward as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Ward could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.

Just in case there has been confusion between counties, we found that there are two Alabama communities named Ward: This one is located in Chambers County and the other is located in Sumter County. For more information, see our Tidbits & Trivia Page for Ward.
