Sarah May Marpel Ware (1750 -1834)

“Wife of John Ware Sr…. Sarah probably died at her daughter’s home (Patience Sears) in Squankum, now Williamstown, Gloucester County, New Jersey. Sarah’s death notice in the Constitution Newspaper dated 28 Oct 1834 has her name as Mary. We don’t know if that was a misprint or if her real name was Mary Sarah Marple or Sarah Mary Marple. She may have just used Mary, there is almost no information about Sarah (Mary) Marple other then her marriage to John Ware as Sarah Marplool.
Believe Sarah was interred in the Ashbrook’s Burial Ground since her husband and her parents, George and Mary, are interred there. Sarah’s brother Isaiah Marple is the only grave stone in the cemetery except for two sandstone grave stones that are for Mary and Samuel Zane. Mary is the daughter of Isaiah Marple and niece of Sarah (Marple) Ware. Sarah and John were married on 6 Mar 1767 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Other children of Sarah and John that are not listed below are;

1. Joseph Ware, born abt 1773 in Gloucester Township, Old Gloucester County, New Jersey. He died before 23 Mar 1796 in Gloucester Township, Gloucester County, now Winslow Township, Camden County, New Jersey. He married Elizabeth Overturff, we believe. Elizabeth was probably the sister or relative of Mary Overturff, Jacob Ware’s wife listed below. Elizabeth and Joseph had one son named Joseph O. Ware.

2. Isaiah Ware, born 2 Feb 1780 in Gloucester Township, Old Gloucester County, New Jersey. He died before 8 Feb 1863 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He married Elizabeth Kimble, on 30 Jun 1800 in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She was born
about 1781 in New Jersey and she died before 31 Mar 1856 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Elizabeth and Isaiah had the following children; Samuel, Kimble, Sarah, Isaiah, George and Abigail.”
