HISTORY OF THE CHAPTER

The chapter and town take their name from Louisa Ward, the first white child born on the town's site, February 15, 1823, to then clerk of the county Joseph Russell Ward and his young wife, Adaline Bragg Lewis Ward.

Louisa's Revolutionary War ancestor was Captain Thomas Bragg, born 1718, died 1808. He saw service under Gen. George Washington.
