Last Edited22 Jul 2022
Birth*5 December 1879Clara Norris Ward (Burton) was born on 5 December 1879 at Northampton Co, VA.3 
Census w/another*1880Clara was listed with another family in the census of 1880 at Franktown District, Northampton Co, VA. HH#351 was headed by Wm. S. Ward, a 48 year married farmer. Listed with him were the following Wards: Tabitha, a 46 year old married wife; Thos. D., a 22 year old single son, works on farm; Jno., a 19 year old single son; Molly, a 16 year old single daughter; Elizabeth, a 13 year old single daughter; George, a 10 year old son and Edgar, a 7 year old son. Also listed were Mary Burton, an 18 year old single mulatto servant; Clara Burton, a 1 year old mulatto female; Geo. Stratton, a 20 year old married black servant; Jane Stratton, an 18 year old married black servant; Mary Stratton, a 6/12 year old black female, born Nov; and Leah Upshur, a 65 year old widowed black servant.1 
Anecdote* Clara Burton and her mother Mary (Rufus) Burton were both with Wm. Southey Ward and his wife Tabitha (Joynes Doughty) in the 1880 census and both were mulattos, so it was assumed Clara had a Caucasian father. In 1900 Clara Norris was still going by Ward and still living with Wm. Southey Ward. However, by 2022 with the advent of DNA testing among five of the descendants of Wm. Southey Ward and his wife Tabitha Joyce Doughty in the 4th, 5th & 6th generation of descent and three of the descendants of Mary Rufus in the 5th generation of descent, no shared DNA has been detected between the two groups. Based on the lack of any shared DNA whatsoever between the descendants of Wm. Southey Ward and his wife Tabitha Joyce Doughty and the descendants of Mary Rufus, it is no longer credible to continue to believe Clara (Burton) Ward is a descendent of William Southy Ward. Even taking into account the fact that the two families descend from different mothers, Mary Rufus' descendants should have enough inherited DNA from William Southy Ward to garner at least a remote match with one of his and his wife Tabitha Joyce Doughty's descendants (especially now that Ancestry.com reports matches with as little as 8Cm). Therefore, Wm. Southey Ward has been removed as a possible biological father of Clara Norris Ward. 
Census w/another1900Clara was listed with another family in the census of 1900 at Franktown District, Northampton Co, VA. HH#33 was headed by Southey Ward, a 68 year old farmer.

Listed with him were the following Wards: Tabitha, a 46 year old married wife; Thos. D., a 22 year old single son, works on farm; Jno., a 19 year old single son; Molly, a 16 year old single daughter; Elizabeth, a 13 year old single daughter; George, a 10 year old son and Edgar, a 7 year old son. Also listed were Mary Burton, an 18 year old single mulatto servant; Clara Burton, a 1 year old mulatto female; Geo. Stratton, a 20 year old married black servant; Jane Stratton, an 18 year old married black servant; Mary Stratton, a 6/12 year old black female, born Nov; and Leah Upshur, a 65 year old widowed black servant.3 
Anecdote* Clara Burton and her mother Mary (Rufus) Burton were both with Wm. Southey Ward and his wife Tabitha (Joynes Doughty) in the 1880 census and both were mulattos, so it was assumed Clara had a Caucasian father. In 1900 Clara Norris was still going by Ward and still living with Wm. Southey Ward. However, by 2022 with the advent of DNA testing among five of the descendants of Wm. Southey Ward and his wife Tabitha Joyce Doughty in the 4th, 5th & 6th generation of descent and three of the descendants of Mary Rufus in the 5th generation of descent, no shared DNA has been detected between the two groups. Based on the lack of any shared DNA whatsoever between the descendants of Wm. Southey Ward and his wife Tabitha Joyce Doughty and the descendants of Mary Rufus, it is no longer credible to continue to believe Clara (Burton) Ward is a descendent of William Southy Ward. Even taking into account the fact that the two families descend from different mothers, Mary Rufus' descendants should have enough inherited DNA from William Southy Ward to garner at least a remote match with one of his and his wife Tabitha Joyce Doughty's descendants (especially now that Ancestry.com reports matches with as little as 8Cm). Therefore, Wm. Southey Ward has been removed as a possible biological father of Clara Norris Ward. 
Death*after 1880She died after 1880 at Northampton Co, VA.
