Richard C. Ward III writes: John A. Ward, his wife Ewing, and his sons Clarence Ward and Richard C Ward Sr. came to Arlington from Abbeville,, Alabama in 1910 and started Wards Bonded Warehouse. All three of R C Sr’s sons worked there growing up. My first job was at the warehouse at the age of twelve in 1964. I worked there until I graduated from high school. Uncle Bruce was my boss. It was a great time in my life and very hard work. I mostly worked in the peanut seed sheller that Bruce and R C Jr (my daddy) owned.
