I. Everett Ware. Specific mention is made of many of the worthy citizens of Lincoln county within the pages of this work, citizens who have figured in the growth and development of this favored locality and whose interests have been identified with its every phase of progress, each contributing in his sphere of action to the well-being of the community in which he resides and to the advancement of its normal and legitimate growth. Among this number is he whose name appears above, peculiar interest attaching to his career from the fact that practically his entire life has been spent within the borders of this county.
1. Everett Ware, vice president of the Bank of Lincoln County at Hershey, was born in Mount Pleasant, on March 3, 1875, and is a son of William and Mary (Webb) Ware,…
Everett Ware received his elementary education in the public schools, completing his studies in York College, and then taking a commercial course in the Bryant & Stratton Business College at North Platte, Nebraska. During the following seven years he was engaged in the mercantile business in Hershey. For three years Mr. Ware again gave his attention to farming, at the end of which time he established a hardware and implement store in Hershey, but subsequently sold that and acquired and interest in the Bank of Lincoln County at Hershey, of which he is now vice president. He has devoted his close attention to the bank, and the splendid prosperity which that well known and influential institution enjoys is undoubtedly very largely due to his efforts and personal popularity. The Bank of Lincoln county has a capital of $25,000, a surplus of $6,000 and average deposits of $340,000, the deposits having more than doubled since Mr. Ware became connected with the bank two years ago.
Mr. Ware was married in 1903 to Bertha Pierson, a native of Nebraska, and to them three children have been born, namely: Floy and Marvin, both of whom are deceased, and Kenneth, at home.
Politically Mr. Ware gives his support to the democratic party, and he is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He is also a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of America. He is a man of genial disposition and generous impulses and enjoys a marked popularity throughout the community with which his interests have been identified for many years.”
