I am a descendant of William WARD 1603-1687 of England and Marlborough, MA and am searching for more information on Phineas Ward, his great-great grandson who was born in Marlborough in 1744, married Dorothy OSGOOD born 1745, and died in Canada in 1796. I would also like information about Phineas' father Phineas (born 8/5/1705 in Marlborough and died 10/19/1756 in Bolton,MA) who married Mary WRIGHT (born 1703).Phineas Sr. was the son of Joseph Ward and Abiah or Abigail WHEELOCK.

Another search area is the ROSE line. I am looking for information about Jehiel Rose born 1708, died 1773, married Tabitha, who was the son of Daniel Rose II born 8/20/1667 and died in Coventry, CT.

A further search is for information about Elijah SMITH (12/29/1735 to 1790) who was married to Elizabeth BENEDICT, and father of Elijah SMITH (born 5/30/1753 in Farmington,CT, died 12/31/1824 in Candor, Tioga County, NY, spouse Susanna JUDD of Farmington), and grandfather of Selah J. Smith (born 10/19/1792 in Farmington, married Rhoda ?, and died 1847, Candor, NY). I would like to know more about the JUDD family of Farmington, CT as they came to Candor, NY as the first settlers.

Any information would be helpful, and I am more than willing to share the information that I have.
