    The birth date is July 1882, confirmed by the Social Security Deathindex as 17 Jul 1882.  This date appears on the California Deathcertificate, and on Ward's draft registrations.

    In 1910, Ward is reported as the Head of his household after hisfather passed away.  He and several single siblings are in thehousehold and his widowed mother is listed with him.

    This funeral home record provides some interesting insights. Note thename of Ward's mother, Dexter Kemp, compared to the name as we knowit, Mariah Elizabeth Kemp.  I know Dexter as a man's name, and havefound no other record reflecting Dexter in his mother's name.  Onegenealogy has suggested the name was Poindexter as a middle or maidenname.  Her middle initial of P in the 1900 census matches this name.

    Also the last name is Kemp instead of Camp.  This is a commontransposition made in the history of this set of names.  The 1880census records her family's name as Camp.  The errors in the name areprobably due to incomplete understanding by the informant, hisdaughter Hallie Philpot.
