Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest on FindAGrave is to create or enhance memorials of my relatives, so that other relatives and interested persons will be able to know of their existence.

I have been doing genealogy research since 1980 on both my parents lines (Ware & Anderson) I've had the fortune to take several trips to Tennessee, Indiana, Ohio, Utah, Arizona, California, Texas, Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas to find the graves of my ancestors and take photos of their headstones.

My ancestral database began with 1,200 names, and now has over 10,000. I've also written several histories of selective Ware and Jones ancestors.

You have my permission to use any of the photos I've taken and have put on this site. I'm happy to help others freely in this cause. It would be nice if you gave me credit for the photos I've taken.

If I can be of any assistance to you just let me know.

Best wishes,
Rich Ware

RE: Ware family reunion
There were about 75 in attendance from Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee. These are grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, and great-great-great grandchildren of Abraham Ballinger Ware and Charity Ann Shinn Ware, married on 9-25-1877 in Fair Haven OH. The descendents of some of their children, Delbert, Robert Earl, Jesse, Jacob, and Otto, were at the reunion.
No printed information was available. Two photo albums were there, including photos from 70 years ago and more.

Glad to help you out. I would love to transfer your families memorials to you since I am not related to anyone in Viola Cemetery or even in TN. Just send me their names and your Find A Grave membership number. Judy
