Carl Eugene Ware (1882 – 1942)

Son of;
John P. Ware & Tempie London

C. E. Ware lived in Oroville, California and applied for a passport May 20, 1916 to go to Columbia (South America) from the Port of New Orleans, Louisiana aboard the “Cartago”, scheduled to depart on May 31st that same year, to work for Oroville Dredging Limited. His application was mailed to Washington D.C. for him by Oroville Dredging Limited, Oroville, Cal (his employer). It included a typed letter from them, $1, and a photograph of him. They stated in the letter they employed him to be an oiler on a gold dredger.

The same was done for Allen Bullard and Howard Sartin on the same dates, heading to the same location, and the same job.

They requested the passports be sent to the applicants c/o United Fruit Company, 630 Common St., New Orleans, Louisiana, so the men must have started east in anticipation of receiving passports.

Carl and Allen Bullard returned to the US the next year. They left Columbia on May 20, 1917 sailing from Limon & Cristobal, aboard the “Heredia”, arriving at the Port of New Orleans, Louisiana on May 25th.

His final occupation was delivery driver for a laundry.
