Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired teacher and amateur genealogist . My interest in family history was piqued by my maternal grandmother who kept scrapbooks of newspaper clippings. Several years ago I learned my paternal grandmother had recorded a history in the 1940's of her grandfather's descendants. I guess collecting and maintaining family records is in my blood.
I like to share what information I have, and internet websites now make it easy to do.
Photography has also been a life-long hobby, so now I enjoy taking pictures to share along with data on .

RE: Chickering-Swain wedding
Hi Ann,

I completely forgot to identify the place! This particular town of Hillsboro is a town in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. The town is officially spelled the same as the county, but is often shortened. I'm pretty sure that the newspaper was the Milford Cabinet, published in Milford, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. The "Clippings" book belonged to Ruth (Atkinson) Emerson. In the front she wrote "My book Ruth Atkinson Emerson, Mother made it"

It belongs to the Historical Society of Amherst New Hampshire and is temporarily at my home while I search through it for helpful family history information.

Glad you liked it and sorry I had a lapse.

RE: Memorial # 91980885
Ann, you can do a search by number--just look at the bottom of the "Begin New Search" page and you can enter it where it says, "Memorial #." If you want to search by name, it is Col. John Ware, Union Grove Cemetery, Putnam Co., Illinois. The passage I transcribed is interesting, I think, and even moreso when one realizes Col. John Ware died not long after their trip.

An added note--I was not really aware before now, but I recently read a passage noting that Union Grove Church was a Presbyterian church. That is not surprising, really, but just an interesting piece of info. And, yes, I am ready for Spring! I hope you are where it's warm!

Wares from Williamstown
And that Williamstown MA connection is why William would go back east to see his family, and pay the legacies for Aunt Hannah.

I used worldcat, typed in William Ware Granville IL and it came right up. Believe it was a Michigan site, but you'll find it.

William Ware
Located the family in Canandaigua NY in 1850: Joseph K., 57; Clarissa 50; wm 18; first 3 b in MA; then, Clarissa 16, Ellen 14, Joseph R 9; all born NY, and two foreign servants. Another brother of Ralph's ?

William had a CW pension, and his wife received it after him. He died June 10, 1910. Hope all of this is of help.

William Ware
I think the William Ware referred to in the probate is probably the one enumerated in Granville in 1860 at age 28. He was born in MA so is probably the same set of Wares. My guess is that he actually travelled to Pownal VT to pay the legacies as required by law. He didn't do it until 1860, which was 6 years after Hannah died. However, if he was going home to see whoever was left in MA, he could swing up to Pownal and get a few documents notarized. Attorney in fact does not mean lawyer. He appears in Gvill in '60 in the household of C. Ware, 58, Clarissa Ware, 26, Joseph R. 18, and a 4 year old named Mary McEwen. Only Wm and C. were born in MA. You should be able to find a lot more about him; he was in the Civil War and an officer from IL. Found this on WorldCat

Tintype of William Ware, of Granville, Illinois, who served in the United States Signal Corps during the Civil War. Ware is photographed posing in his officer's uniform with sword. Tintype in a leather bound case with brass trimming. Ware was commissioned as a sergeant in 1861 with Company H, 20th Illinois Infantry Regiment. He was later promoted to 1st Lieutenant in 1863, and later transferred to the Signal Corps. Ware mustered out of service in September 1865.

Timothy Ware
In the probate file for Hannah Ware, is included info that may be of interest to you. Husband Timothy was intestate. Hannah and a James Laughlin adm.

In Hannah's will, the following Wares are mentioned: A Ralph Ware of Granville becomes Executor and transfers the legacies to members of my family in Pownal VT. A william Ware of Granville is appted attorney in fact to give the legacies ( 6 yrs after her death.) Ralph Ware paid for hannah's gravestone and another.

Hope this helps.

RE: Hannah (Andrew) Ware
Jean Burger kindly sent me the probate file. Confirms my attribution; she was one of the Andrew sisters of Pownal, VT. She even gave a legacy to her niece, my ggg gm. Perhaps you can confirm with HJ.

RE: Hannah (Andrew) Ware
Yes Andrew was her maiden name. I manage her father's memorial at #43640251, along with that of her mother and four of her sisters.
