John Ware (1688 – )

“John Ware, the second son of Joseph Ware by his first wife, Martha (Becket) Ware, was born in New Jersey about 1688; his will, probated June 20, 1734, was made May 1, preceding, when he declares himself ‘sick and weak in body, but of sound mind and perfect memory.’  He was styled ‘yeoman’ and declares in his will that he is a resident of Cohansie, Salem county, Province of New Jersey.  He left to ‘his loving wife, Bathsheba’ all his ‘plantation lands buildings with appurtenances situate and being in Cohansie’ until his first born son, John, born 1722, ‘shall arrive at the age of twenty-one years.’  After that she was to have one-third of all he possessed so long as she remained a widow.”
