Robert Ware (1782 – )

“Robert Ware was the youngest son of deacon Isaac Ware, and was born in Lexington, Ky., in 1792. Migrating to Campbell county, in his youth, he professed conversion and united with Licking church, about 1812. With Uriah Edwards, he was licensed to preach, in 1821, and was ordained to the care of Licking church, in 1823. To this congregation he ministered about four years, baptizing near 40. He was not a strong doctrinal preacher; but he was warm and zealous in his address, and mighty in exhortation. His piety was marked, and few were more successful in winning souls to Christ. About 1827, he moved to Mississippi, where, after many years of usefulness, he finished his course.”

  2. I wonder if this is the same Robert Ware that is mentioned in the book “The Travelling Church”? I read the book and never did find this person.
