John Ward [Parents] was born on 19 Dec 1816 in Moira, Ashley, Leistershire, England. He died on 30 Sep 1884 in Bloomington, Bear Lake, Idaho. He married Emma Hogg on 7 May 1838 in A, England.
Emma Hogg [Parents] was born on 18 Aug 1819 in Measham, Derby, England. She died on 29 Mar 1893 in Bloomington, Bear Lake, Idaho. She married John Ward on 7 May 1838 in A, England.
Here is some information I found from the Thornock family history:
The Ward family and other close associates were also joining the church during 1844 and 1845. Elder E. J. Bowers baptized Hannah Ward on June 22, 1844 and John Ward (Sen.) July 31, 1844. Elder E. H. Platts baptized Emma Hogg Ward on November 19, 1844 and Elder E. C. Maehin baptized her husband, John Ward (Jr.) on February 18, 1845.
The newly converted families were actively involved in the small “Mormon” branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter—day Saints in Whitwick. The Ward and Thornock children were playmates. Twenty years later the Ward and Thornock families were reunited in Utah and Idaho in America and the two oldest Thornock sons married daughters of John and Emma Hogg Ward and both families helped in colonizing the Bear Lake Valley....
The Ward Family were especially close friends and the children had been playmates since childhood and would be sorely missed. In later Chapters in this book the Ward and Thornock families are reunited in Utah ten years later, in 1864, and the two older Thornock sons married two Ward daughters.
....

The vacant lots in 1871 were largely in the northwest part of Bloomington. Just west of the Ward home built in 1867 and across the street were two vacant lots. The Thornock family selected this location. It was one block north of the home John and Emma had started to build in 1865. There would be no homes between them, their lots would only be separated by a street. Matthew and Ann selected a 4-acre tract three blocks southwest of John and Emma’s. The Thornock and Ward families were truly happy to be such close neighbors. This relationship began many years before in England. Now they would continue to rear their families together in America.
....
Their good friends, John and Emma Hogg Ward had moved to Bloomington four years before, in 1867, and built their home on the lot just across the street to the east. They were close neighbors for the rest of their lives, a relationship which began in Whitwick, England when both couples were newly weds.
....
Ann lived in widowhood 26-1/2 years surrounded by the large Thornock family, relatives and friends. Her special and close friend and next door neighbor, Emma Hogg Ward, had lost her husband only three months before John died. These two women had become acquainted in Whitwick, England and the Ward and Thornock families had for ten years (1844—54) been active members in the Whitwick Branch of the Church. For the most recent 20 years the two families were closely associated in Farmington and Bountiful, Utah and in Bloomington, Idaho. Ann’s two oldest sons had married Emma’s two daughters and both large Thornock and Ward families surrounded these two widows as long as they lived.

Okay, I'm confused...I have a picture from Familysearch that says Thomas Ward was married to Emma Hogg Ward...so, this might be them??? Lower left is Thomas, lower middle is Emma.
