If you believe the profile of James Preston Ward his family just couldn’t part with him. Not only did he still live with them for 28 years after his death but they carted him across a few states. Or maybe not. The 1860 and 1880 Censuses are for a David Ward. Why would you attach a census record for someone with a different name?
