In the revised edition of «u»Ward a Genealogical Record of the Wards of Big Sandy«/u»«u»«/u», by Billie Edyth Ward, she starts out her chapter on Sarah Ward with the following:

Sarah Ward, older of the two reported daughters of Sarah Osborn and James Ward, was born in Viginia ca 1790. She would have been 13-14 years of age when the family came to Big Sandy. In Floyd County records is found her marriage to John Chapman 11 Oct 1810. Sarah Ward, the mother, gives her permission and is signed "Sarah Ward, Senr". An examination of the permit indicates that Silas P. Wooten, who wrote the note, signed her name. Silas Wooten was a teacher and scribe for numerous people.

John and Sarah Chapman are listed in the census of Lawrence County until the year 1880 when neither appears, indicating that both died between 1870-1880.

They lived in the area of Elk Creek which is now part of Martin County. Records show that early John Chapman owned land on Rockcastle Creek near the present site of Inez. He sold this land to James Ward according to the statements given in 1833 during the land dispute known as the 'Walcott Case'. (At this time James Ward is referred to as James Ward, Jr.)

Several of the sons and daughters of John and Sarah Chapman owned land and made their homes in the area of Big Elk and Little Elk creeks. (p. 402, rev. ed.)
