“CHARLES WILLIAM WARE is a native of Christian Co., KY, and was born November 16, 1826.  In 1827 he removed with his parents to Todd Co., where he grew to manhood and has since that time had his residence; he is the son of Edmund (Jasper) Ware, who was born in Franklin Co., KY, in 1799, and removed to Christian Co. about  1820;  he was married in 1824, to Miss Louisa V., daughter of Nicholas M. and Sarah T.   (Bullock) Anderson, of Todd Co., and from this union sprang:  Sarah J. (Runyon), Charles William, Mary A. ( Edmunds), Jasper A., Susan B. (Runyon), Martha G.   (Dickinson), Nicholas M. and Louisa E. (Garth).  Charles W. Ware was again united in marriage October 9, 1861, to Miss Elizabeth V., daughter of William A. and Elizabeth B. (Saffarans) Garth, of Todd Co., KY, and this union was blessed with five children, all living, viz.: William M., born July 23,1862; Charlie B. (Walton), June 22, 1864; Lizzie V., August 14, 1867; Edmund, February 24, 1870, and Charles Walter, March 7, 1875.

Mr. Ware was reared in the mercantile business, but for the last twenty-five years has pursued the vocation of a farmer, in which he has been successful,owning at present 800 acres of very valuable productive land, well improved; his residence, which is near the Trenton depot, is doubtless one of the very best in Todd Co.

In religion Mr. Ware is a Baptist, and in politics was formerly an Old Line Whig, but at present acts with the Democratic party; he has been often urged by the people of his county to represent them in the Legislature, but never consented to offer his services.”
