Asa Ware, Sr. (1755 – 1833)

Asa Ware, Sr was a great-grandson of the immigrant Joseph Ware (1650-1711) who arrived in southwestern NJ with John Fenwick and other Quakers on the “Griffith” in 1675. Asa’s father John Ware Jr (1720-1773) was the son of John Ware Sr (1688-1734), who was in turn the son of Joseph. In 1804 Asa Sr left Burlington County, NJ with his wife Elizabeth and their 10 children and moved to Columbiana County, in eastern Ohio, where he started a farm in the town of Goshen, near Salem. When Asa Sr died in 1833 (and was buried in the Friends Cemetery in Salem, OH), he left the farm to his son Asa Ware, Jr (1801–1866) who spent his life there.

  1. Hi Mary E – The connection from Asa Sr to Joseph the immigrant, and his DOD, was provided by the Burlington County, New Jersey Historical Society. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out where I got the DOB. Your inquiry – and my failure to substantiate the date – has undermined any confidence that I had in it. If you have a gravestone for Joseph, DOD 1711, that is almost assuredly he. I would be very interested in a picture of the stone, as well as any research into his DOB. Thank you, Bill.

  2. Hi: Can you tell me where you got Joseph Wares’ birthdate of 1650? I have found his grave and a accurate birthdate would be great. Thanks, Mary E
