Hezakiah Ware (1740 – 1779)

”Ware—Cowell.—According to the Ware Genealogy, Hezekiah Ware was a Revolutionary soldier. He was b. Nov. 27. 1740, and d. June 19, 1779. He m. Molly Hall, May 10, 1764, who d. Dec. 9, 1809. aged 70 ys. Page 96 of the Genealogy says that he was a lieut. in 1777, and on service in R. I. in 1778; on p. 561, Vol. 16 of Mass. Archives, nearly the entire page is taken up with the account of his services, beginning as 2d lieut. of a company of Minute Men in 1775.  As there was only the one Hezekiah Ware in Wrentham at that time of a suitable age to have served (his son Hezekiah being a boy of only eight years), there is no question that this service may be claimed by descendants of Jason Ware and Jemima Cowell. His children were Jason, b. Sept. 19, 1765; Hezekiah, 1767; Eunice, 1769; Rhoda, 1771; Harmon, 1773; Preston, 1777; Susan, 1779.”

  1. I believe that I remember Hezekiah as being an acorn from a branch of your Ware family tree. Thanks Vicki.
