Ward was captain of several vessels, including the Rowena (1903-07), Lizzie Rich (1905), Stella Maud (1907-10), and the Carrie C. Ware (1913-15). He sailed to and traded in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Maine, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Papers were donated in 1973 by James Snowdon and Julia Filmore of Sackville, New Brunswick.
