Verna Ware Opens Fire in Crowded Courtroom — 1 Comment

  1. Dear Ware Family,
    My dad and I drove to Gatesville TX this week to research my Great Great Grandfather, James Joshua Smith (J.J. Smith) who was one of the bystanders shot and killed by Verna Ware. We were wondering if your family knows if Verna ever married and if so what was her married name? Also, what was the date of her death? Since the trial never took place, does the family believe that her accusations were true against John Hanes? Any information you have would be helpful as we research this fascinating story of history. Thank you.
