Biography of James A. Ward
Sanel Township, Mendocino County, CA Biographies





James A. Ward. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, March 13, 1842. When eight years of age he, with parents, crossed the plains to California, arriving in Nevada county in October. After a residence of about one year in Marysville they moved to Indian Springs, where they spent one year in hotel keeping. We next find them in Sonoma county, where they spent one year in farming, then settled in Margin county just across the line from Sonoma county. In 1864 the subject of this sketch, leaving his parents, came to Mendocino county and settled on his present place, consisting of six hundred and forty acres of deeded land, located on Dry creek in Sanel township, where he is engaged in stock raising and wool growing. Mr. Ward is the earliest settler left on the creek. He married, November 12, 1867, Miss Malina C. Edwards. By this marriage they have four children: James W., Carrie M, Lillie B., and Mary N.
