1850 Georgia Slave Owner Census, Ware — 1 Comment

  1. My grandfather’s name was Claude, he used the sur names Ware, Hawes and maybe Smalley (mother’s slave sur name). Claude has been listed as a mulatto in the United States Federal Census. My grandfather was born about April 1882 in Salem, Lincoln GA., died Mar 3, 1951, married Daisy Rose Smalley December 28, 1904. Daisy Rose Smalley was born about May 1882 in Leatherville GA., she died June 2, 1930 i Fulton GA. I’m trying to link with the Ware’s that owned slaves during this time period, if there’s any information out there, that can tell me a little about my grandfather or great grandfather. The only Wares that I have crossed are the Rev. Robert Alexander Ware family. There was a son by the name of Robert Garett Ware, whom married a Ellen Smalley (although he married several times), which is my great grandmother’s last name (slaves used their owners last name). My great grandmother’s name was Cherry Smalley, she married a Henry Hawes December 28 1883, my grandfather Claude was born about April 1882 (maybe this why Claude used the last name Hawes for a while). Both Cherry and Henry were listed as mulattos. The U.S. Federal Census also show that Claude had half brothers and sisters. This guide me to think that one of the white Wares sons fathered my grandfather. My brothers and sisters eye witness to my grandfather’s profile as tall, white complexion, white straight hair and a very big man. Please if you have any records of slaves, indigent servant or free person of color working for the Ware family or connections, share please.
    Thank you
    GOD Bless………….Frances Ware-McGinnis
