    Census 30 Sep 1850  Harrison Co., Texas Find all individuals with events at this location  [3
    • In the 1850 Census, Henry is listed as a farmer with $11,200 worth of real estate.

      Interestingly, even with this large of a land holding, I cannot find Henry in the 1850 slave schedule of the census. His neighbors are all listed but I don't see Henry.
    Census 6 Sep 1860  Marshall, Harrison Co., Texas Find all individuals with events at this location  [8, 9
    • In 1860, Henry is listed as a farmer with $23,000 worth of real estate and $80,000 worth of personal property. He is listed as owning 28 slaves.

    • In 1870, Henry is listed as a planter with $70,000 worth of real estate.

      In addition to the family, there is a J..> Everitt listed in the home, age 25. This seems likely to be a nephew of Martha.

    Married 1796  Talladega, Talladega Co., Alabama Find all individuals with events at this location  [12
    • U.S. marriage records says that this occurred in Georgia. In 1796, Alabama was a part of Georgia, I think.

      This hardly seems the likely place for this marriage. Talladega was frontier country. The Jimersons and the Wares were well established on the eastern side of Georgia and did not seem to be heading out to the west to get married.

  • Notes 
    • Lived in Harrison County, TX, about 9 miles from Marshall, in 1845. Successful raising cotton. Entered cotton brokerage business after the Civil War. Moved to New Orleans. Retired to Pass Christian, MS.

      In 1840, there is a Henry B Ware in Leon County, Florida. The household has just a husband and wife (both 30-40 yrs) and 31 slaves. Seems unlikely that this is our family.

      However, we ought to be able to find him in 1840 and 1880 census.
