James Ware of Rapides Parish,Louisiana
I am researching the Ware family tree. And my great great grandfather is James Ware. James was b.May 28,1830. He married Caroline Perkins in 1854. They had 14 children but only 8 of them were alive in 1898. I know all of the names of his 8 children. My great grandfather,William Alford is his son. James Ware was a Captain in the Conf. War. I am trying to find out who James' parents are/were. I know who Caroline Perkins Ware parents are/were. But I don't know about James. My great grandfather William Alford Ware married Ada Gracey Ashworth and they had my grandmother,Carrie Ware. My grandmother married a Robert Guree. My great grandparents and my grandparents are all buried at Oak Hill Cem. in Oakdale,Louisiana.I know all of Alford's and Ada's children. I even know some on the Ashworths. But James' family is a mystery to me. James stated in his pension appication that he was born in Louisiana. If this is so someone has to be related to this family around the Rapides,Calcauise, and most of all the Allen Parish. Please email me if you can help me out any. Thank you.
