He was born August 16, 1632 in Northly, Oxfordshire, England. and died in Middletown, Connecticut.  He came to America between 1632 and 1658 when he married his first wife, Sarah Phelps in Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut.  She was 26 and he was 25.  Sarah died a year later about two weeks after giving birth to their only child William Jr. who died himself one day shy of his 2nd birthday in 1661.  William Sr. now 27 married the 27 year old Phoebe Fenner in 1660 and begot 9 children of their own.  The second one, a girl named Phoebe Ward was born in 1663 and is the boys' 9th great-grandmother having married Samuel Hall in 1683.  They are the parents of Experience Hall.  But lets look back on the timing of the their marriage and the death of William Ward Jr.  Sarah Phelps died on July 9, 1659 after giving birth to William on June 21, 1659.  Then William Sr. married Phoebe Fenner on March 28 1660, roughly 8 months after the death of his first wife.  Then Phoebe gave birth to their first child, Thomas Ward on February 7, 1661, 11 months later.  But William Jr. died June 20, 1661.  Was she too busy with her new child to pay attention to the sickly William Jr?  We may never know.

Insine William Ward and Phoebe Fenner's anniversary number 352 is today,
