Reference=1705
Samuel Ward was born on 24 September 1641 at Sudbury, MA.1,2,3 He was the son of Deacon William Ward and Elizabeth (?). Samuel Ward married Sarah How on 6 June 1667 at Marlborough, MA; (the bride's maiden name is not shown).4 Samuel Ward died on 15 November 1729 at Marlborough, MA; (not found in the published records).1,5
Note that Samuel Ward's brother Obadiah also had a daughter Mary born in 1676 who is sometimes confused with her cousin. However, proof of the identity of Caleb Rice's wife Mary should be found in the probate records concerning Samuel Ward's will. His will was contested in Probate Court by all his children and heirs except son Samuel, the chief beneficiary, but the heirs eventually came to an agreement.6,7 He left a will on 22 May 1727.8

From Edmund Rice Assn:
Mary Rice was born on 30 April 1699 at Marlborough, MA.4,3,5 She was the daughter of Deacon Caleb Rice and Mary Ward. Mary Rice married Lt Abraham Beaman on 9 June 1726 at Marlborough, MA, the Marlborough vital records has the date as 1726 and the husband as Abraham Beamont (Gen Reg indicates date of marriage as 16 March 1725). Ward has a son Abraham incorrectly assigned to Abraham (Sr) and Mary Beaman. The Westborough VR is quite clear that Abraham's father was Eleazer Beaman, likely a brother to Abraham (Sr).1,2,6 Mary Rice died on 18 May 1790 at Marlborough, MA, aged 91y 18d, under the name Beeman.7,3,8,9 She was buried at Old Common Cemetery, Marlborough, MA.9
