Edward Ware

”PERRY TOWNSHIP occupies the southeast corner of Tuscarawas County. Guernsey County bounds it on the south and Harrison on the east; Rush Township bounds it on the north, and Washington on the west. It consists of Township 5, Range 1, of the United States Military District, and is five miles square. It is composed entirely of Congress land. The township was formed from Oxford Township and named Perry, at a session of the County Commissioners held August 11, 1818, in compliance with a petition presented by Robert Johnson. Its original limits included, besides Township 5, Range 1, a strip two miles wide off the east side of Township 5, Range 2, now in Washington Township. The erection of Washington in 1827 reduced Perry to its present size. …

…Edward Ware, fifteen acres… in the southeast quarter of Section 20.”
