He married Sophie M. Storbeck Born, 19 Jun 1894, in Germantown, TX. Died, 6 Nov 1995, in Cuero, DeWitt Co, TX. Burial: 1995, in Holy Cross Cem, Goliad Co, TX.

The 1900 census names this child Leopold Ware and the 1910 census has his name as Paul Waer; both census' indicate his birth year as 1893. Elder members of the Veronica (Zaiontz) Fryday family have noted this child's name as Leopold in a family photograph now owned by Anna Jobes. There are indications that he generally went by the name of Paul. Paul and Sophie were witnesses to the marriage of Frances Zaiontz and W R Dagg. Paul and Frances were raised together after her mothers death.

Hank Zaiontz reports that Paul J. Waer indicated his father's middle name was "Lewis". Lewis is the English version of the German name Ludwig. The child baptized as Leopold Paul Waer was the grandson of Ludwig Zaiontz. It is customary in some circles to name a first grandson after the grandparent. It is conceivable that Susanna had another son named Ludwig (or Lewis) that did not survive but a short time since there was four years from her marriage (1873) until the first recorded child was born (1877). "Leopold" Paul Lewis was the last child and possibly the only surviving son might have been called Lewis or given the additional name in honor of the grandfather or a deceased brother. Hank Zaiontz gives his death as 23 July 1953.
