Allen Ware

”According to Hon. James Herrington, the Curtis place was occupied in the Spring of 1835 by Allen Ware, a bachelor from Virginia, who is portrayed by him as in rather better circumstances than his neighbors, living in a comfortable cabin, with a barn —good for those days—near by, and an orchard of young apple trees near his door. …Ware also left before the country had emerged from its original wild state.”
