About ricardoamware

When I retired from my job in January, 2013 I had no idea what I was going to do with all my free time. Raised in New Orleans by my paternal grandparents (my mother died when I was 7 and my father was in the US Navy), I was always curious about my family background). It was a year ago that I discovered Ancestry.com and from that point I was hooked. With a lot of patience and free time, I was able to trace my family background in Louisiana to 1838. I also found records showing William Ware and his wife, Henrietta, as slaves arriving in the port of New Orleans from Charleston, SC on the slave ship Katherine Jackson. Further I discover revealed that William Ware served and was killed as a Confederate solider. According to legal Documents he is buried in Mobile National Cemetery. He was my 2nd great grandfather.
