|John Ward||- ? -||Early 1900's, 1920's?, 1930's?||"My
greatgrandfather was a printer in Chester, Pa in the early 1900's maybe the 20's or 30's.
His name was John Ward and his family lived on Packer Street. I have a small hand bound
journal of his and a cigar die that he also used for printing cigar box lids. I am not
sure where his shop was. Thus my finding your site as I would like to know more about him.
My grandfather Samuel B Ward grew up in Chester and worked for I B Thomas, I believe, as a
chemist. He lived most of his life in Mickleton,NJ. That is where I am originally from,
the town of Clarksboro.
