Ware, Emma (28 JAN 1861 - 26 JAN 1909)

Mrs. Emma Ware died at the state hospital at Oshkosh, Tuesday, Jan. 26, 1909, at 6 p.m., aged 48 yeas, 11 months and 26 days.

Deceased was born in Stockbridge, Calumet Co. Jan. 28, 1861 and was married in Oct. 1879 to Julian H. Ware. They made their home at that place until three years later, the fall of 1882, when she came to Clark County, Wis. with her husband and two children, settling on a farm 5 ½ miles south of this city, where she has lived for the past 21 years.

Her husband, Julian H. Ware, was hurt at a *barn raising on the Huntzicker farm in June 1896 and died twenty-four hours later from his injuries.

The grim reaper has taken a kind and loving parent, a mother who had lived her life well and nobly, she was kind and affectionate and a sincere Christian. She leaves two children to mourn her death, Mrs. Harry Heaslett of Loyal and Julius H. Ware of Eaton. The sympathy of the surrounding community and of all who knew her is extended to the bereaved ones.

The funeral services were held at the Presbyterian Church in this city, Saturday afternoon at 1:30, Rev. W.T. Hendren conducting the services. The remains were place at rest in the Greenwood Cemetery.


*The above photo was taken on a Clark County, Wisconsin area farm in 1910.  Several neighboring farmers joined in the “barn raising” task after the first floor of mortar and stone was completed.  The loft framework of beams was put in place to be followed by several roofing rafters, which were raised and set up in place by men pulling the ropes that were attached to the rafters.  They helped one another in such tasks, donating their time and efforts, being good neighbors by doing a favor that was returned in one way or another.
