“On Tuesday, the 27th, Asaph R. Ware died at his home in the town of Stockbridge. The old gentleman was ill only a few days. On the Friday previous to his death he complained of not feeling well, but Saturday seemed himself again. Sunday morning he was taken quite ill and medical aid seemed to be of no avail, he seemed not to suffer and sank rapidly until 2:15 when he passed away.
Asaph R. Ware was born Feb. 29th, 1816, at Black River, Saratoga Co. N.Y., and moved in early childhood with his parents to Perryburg, Cattaraugus Co., N.Y., where he was married to Marcia L. Flower, on Feb. 9th, 1841. He moved to the town of York in Dane Co., Wis., in 1846, then to Stockbridge, Calumet Co., Wis., in 1859 where he has since resided on a farm until his death. Neighbors and friends as well as relatives and family will sadly miss the kind old man who had none but kind and pleasant words for all whom he chanced to meet.
He was the father of five children, two of whom preceded him to that Home of peace and rest, one Francis L., who died at an early age and Julian H., who but recently met death by a sad accident in a northern county. His wife and three children, Mrs. March C. Scott, Julius G and Herbert N Ware are left to mourn his death.
He was buried from his home on Thursday and interred in Portland cemetery at Brant. Among those present at the funeral from a distance were Marvin Boice and wife and Lyman Flower of Fond du Lac, Wis., C. F Tracy and wife, J. A. Tracy and wife and O. C. Tracy and wife, of Appleton, and Will Otis of Antigo.”
