Ware Bible Records for Sarah Ware, Wife of Ephraim Groves Ware — 2 Comments

  1. Researching my ancestor Manning Ware born in Bolton, New York in 1818. Manning died in April of 1880 in Lorain County Ohio. Hoping to identify Manning’s parents.

  2. If it weren’t for Bible records kept by a family member(s), a large part of our ancestry would lie in graves weathered by time. This Bible is indeed a very valuable find for family history.
