Mrs. Maggie C. Ware Obituary, 1890

"DEATH OF MRS. WARE  The Good Woman Passed Away at 3:20 
O'clock This Morning. 
  It is with sadness THE NEWS records the death of Mrs.
Maggie C. Ware, wife of R. A. Ware, who died this morning
at 3:20 o'clock.
  For two weeks medical skill and devoted nursing battled 
with a treacherous disease, but to no avail, and just 
before the early morning light came, her gentle spirit 
went home to its Savior.
  As she had lived, so she died, quietly, at peace with 
every one, and fearing nothing.
  Realizing that death was near, she called each of her 
loved ones to her side, giving them precious words of
comfort, and assuring them of the peace in her own heart.
  Mrs. Ware was raised in Columbus, Ga., where she was 
known and loved as one of the purest and truest of Christian
women.
  During her residence of a few years in Macon, the same
tender, reverential love was given her by the many friends
her gentle influence had, all of whom can truly say.
	"None knew her but to love her, None named her but
to praise."
  She was a daughter of Mrs. J. S. Cushman, a grand daughter 
of Mrs. M. D. Lewis, and sister of C. J. Cushman, Mrs. J. A. 
Edwards, and Mrs. H. C. Tindall, all of whom survive her.
  She leaves, besides these, a husband and three children 
to mourn her loss and the sympathies of many true and loving 
hearts will go out to them in their great bereavement.
  The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at eleven 
o'clock, from the family residence on Cole street."
