Albert Harris Ware (1827 – 1893)

“Albert Harris Ware, son of Abel and Elizabeth (Thomas) Ware, was born 7 August, 1827, at Athens. He was prepared for college at Bloomfield Academy and spent two years at Waterville College, entering Bowdoin as a Junior. He graduated with high rank in 1849, and for two succeeding years was principal of Topsham Academy. He entered upon the study of law in Brunswick, but pursued it subsequently with John S. Abbott, of Norridgewoek (Bowd., 1827). He was admitted to the bar in 1853, settled at North Anson, and continued in active practice of his profession until a few months before his death. As a citizen Mr. Ware was quiet and unassuming, but highly esteemed for his ability and integrity. He served the community as supervisor of public schools for several years. He was learned in the law, faithful to his clients, and, though not an aspirant for office, was often called on to discharge public duties. He was register of probate for the county of Somerset from 1857 to 1861. He died of paralysis, 1 April, 1893, at the Maine General Hospital, Portland.

Mr. Ware married, 16 October, 1856, Harriet E., only daughter of Dr. Isaac Palmer (Bowd., 1833), and Sarah (Blossom) Palmer, who survives with two daughters, Mrs. D. L. Bodfish of Bridgewater, Mass., and Miss Mary Lillian Ware, and one son, Isaac Palmer Ware, Asst. Surg. U. S. A.”
