James Ware

Jackson Co. MS

James Ware! There are many from the area of Jackson Co. MS. that descend from James Ware. I have lots of Ware family history that was given to me by the late Milton Walker, this was his lineage.

James Ware Sr. was born 1758 in Ireland. He was in North Carolina by 1780. He was a Revolutionary War Soldier from Rowan Co. North Carolina, and applied for a Soldier's pension from Jackson Co. MS.

After the war James moved to Greene Co. GA. where he married in 1787 to Elizabeth Walker.

On October 31, 1801 James was issued a passport from the Governor of Georgia to travel westward through the Creek Nation for a settlement on Tom or Don Bigby River (Tombigbee).

Three days prior to James application, a Thomas Ware made application to travel to West Florida. These two Ware men were probably related.
