Anna Ware (1843 – 1908)

”Ware—Mrs. Anna Ware was born in Schleitz, Germany, January 27, 1843 and died at Andover, N. Y., November 26, 1908. She was the daughter of Julius and Freddericke Heilman Hofer who came with their small family to this country about 1850. Soon afterwards the mother died and Anna was taken into the home of William Bliss Clarke of Andover, N. Y., where she has always lived. She was married to Robert Crosett Ware August 12, 1862; but in response to his country’s call he defended its honor and left his bride the following day and never came home. He was killed in battle and was buried at Arlington Heights May 18, 1864. She early became a Christian and united with the Andover Seventh-day Baptist Church of which she remained a most devoted member until her death. As a member of the denomination she was loyal, always taking a deep interest in its life and work, giving freely of her means to promote its interests. She was a thorough and conscientious Christian woman, living a simple life, characterized by such love and devotion as won for her a host of admirers and friends who will greatly miss her. E. D. V. H.”
