Henry Ware


“He was born in Montpelier, Vermont in 1810.  He died in Cincinnati, Ohio, August 25, 1885.  he is buried in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati.

Henry Ware first appears as a listing in the Cincinnati directory for 1839-40 as follows:  Ware, Henry (ver.) Math. Inst.-mkr., at Shawk’s boards, corner 5th and Sycamore.  From 1839 through 1853, Ware is listed in the Cincinnati directories in much the same way as above though various changes of home address appear.  In 1855 and 1856, the firm is listed:  Ware & Hiremann (Hy. W. & Jno. H. H.) math, & philso. & optical instr. mkrs., 25 E. 4th, h. 240 Longworth.  In 1857, there is no listing, but Ware’s name appears alone from 1858 as an optician and mathematical instrument manufacturer on East Fourth Street with his last home address being 106 Broadway.”
