William Henry Ware born at Sidney, Shelby Co., Ohio April-11-1855 died at Canton Kansas, Nov.-18-1927 at 2:30 a.m. age, 72 years, 7 month and 7 days. His parents moved to Illinois when he was a small child here his mother died. He and his folks moved to Kansas in 1873 and settled 7 1/2 miles south east of McPherson in Lone Tree township on a homestead.
He joined the Christian Church in 1897 and was baptized by Rev. Guy of Canton.
He was married to Nancy M. Hall in Empire township, McPherson Co., May-4-1879. To this union were born 10 children.
He is survived by his widow, Nancy Ware, one brother, Charles A. Ware,of McPherson; 10 children, Lester H., Frank L., and Harry L., of Chicago, Ill.,Ralph, Charles E.,and George E. of Claflin Kansas, Chester M. of Denver, Colo., Bessie M. Jacobson of Phoenix, Ariz., Anna Bair and Minnie White of Canton and twenty three grandchildren.
He was a member of the I.O.O.F.168{Independent Order of Oddfellows which is a benevolent fraternity still active today} the M.W.A. 1641{Modern Woodmen of America which is a fraternal life insurance company still active today} and the K. K. K. No.63.{the Ku Klux Klan which was very active in McPherson County between 1910 and the early 1930's. Because the county was not heavily populated with African-Americans, most of the Klan's activity--other than socializing and some fund-raising, was directed at pacifists during the World War One era, who were viewed by the Klan as unpatriotic}.
Funeral services were held at the Canton Christian Church at 2 p.m. Sunday Nov. 20-1927 conducted by Lawrence S. Ashley, minister of the First Christian Church of McPherson. Burial was in the Canton Cemetery. It was regretted that the three sons living in Chicago Ill., and the daughter of Phoenix Ariz., were unable to be present at the funeral.
