  1. This is an amazing historical tidbit. I’m one of the Virginia Wares and am fairly familiar with the history of my Essex County ancestors (descendents of Robert Lowery Ware), but I’ve never heard of any other Samuel Wares before. The most amazing part is that I have an identical twin brother named Robert. Having those two names linked together in the same place, but two hundred year prior, is quite an amazing historical coincidence. Thanks very much for posting this!
