I was thrilled to find my Ward Ohio ancestors on http://fsbeta.familysearch.org/.
I was able to locate the following:
Death Certificate Scans for:
Herman W. Ward, Knox County, Miller Township, Ohio. Death date: June 29, 1919
parents were Joel M. Ward and Althea Rowland.
John Edward Ward, Knox County, Mount Vernon, Ohio. Died December 24, 1932. parents were Joel M. Ward and Althea Rowland.
Glays Ward. Mount Vernon, Knox County, Ohio. February 1, 1911. Parents were William L. Ward and Anna Graham.
Family tradition said that she was standing too close to the fireplace and her nightgown caught fire and she died of her burns. The scan of the death certificate says "accidental burn".
