Martha Ann Ward was my 3rd great-grandmother.  She was the daughter of Castleton and Mary Ward, both natives of Tennessee. Martha Ward married my 3rd great-grandfather, Thomas Adolphus Putman, January 20th, 1869 in Sebastian County, Arkansas. They had 4 children, Nona, Rosalie, Annie, and Pearl Putman. Thomas Putman preceded Martha in death. Martha was 69 years old when she died of a heart attack from complications from bronchitis. She was buried in the family plot beside her husband in Forest Park Cemetery in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
