Note: After a thorough review of the records, it appears Eunice erred in stating Ward Hatcher's wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Deme, and that his son, Richard, was a minor.
Deme was the sister of Ward and her daughter, Elizabeth, married Ward's son, Richard. Richard's tombstone also shows he was born 1794 and hardly a minor in 1820.
He married 1) Sarah Woolington, marriage bond 25 Nov 1779, Bedford Co. VA; 2) Judith Hatcher, marriage bond 10 Dec 1792, Bedford Co. VA; 3) Mary Updike, marriage bond 1 Jan 1819, Bedford Co. VA
