  1. Hello, i am trying to see if this is “preble ware” family.
    I have very little information as i found his prayer book. It seems to be fairly old and i would like to return it to his family.
    There are several notes that were written to him in the beginning of the book.

  2. He is also my great grandfather. My Grandfather was Abbot K Ware. I would love to see the family tree information that your grandmother Nancy left you. I met Nancy a couple of times, she was a lovely women.

  3. Storer Preble Ware I was born 25 July 1881 in Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He married Elizabeth Upton Kinsman on 19 October 1907 in Brookline, Norfolk County, Massachusetts. He died 5 August 1939 in Jamaica Plain, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He was a banker.
    From the Boston Herald, Sunday, August 6, 1939, page 35:

    Storer Preble Ware, 58, of Gay street. Westwood, former president and director of Bond and Goodwin, Inc., Boston investment house, died yesterday at the Faulkner Hospital, Jamaica Plain, after a month’s illness.

    A native of Roxbury, Mr. Ware was a graduate of Harvard College, class of 1902. He entered the investment business a few years after graduation and was active in that business until his death. He was a member of the Tennis and Racquet Club, The Country Club, Harvard Club and Fly Club.

    Besides his widow, Mrs. Elizabeth (Kinsman) Ware, he leaves three sons, Storer P. Ware, Jr., of New York; Nathanial Ware and Abbot K.

  4. This is my great grandfather. I will try to add all of the family history I have – there is quite alot in a family bible that my grandmother, Nancy Ware Cutler (after whom I am named) showed me several years ago.
