PVT John Albert Ware

PVT John Albert Ware was 25 Apr 1925 probably in Felton, Delaware to John Thomas and Elizabeth Lillian (Vincent) Ware.  The 3rd of 7 children, John had only one brother.  He probably helped his father on the family farm.  John Albert Ware never married. 

John was drafted in October 1943 and PVT Ware was sent overseas and assigned to I Company 116th Infantry on 22 Jun 1944.  PVT Ware was killed in action on 13 Jul 1944 near Saint-Lo, France.

After the war his body was brought home and interred in Barratts Chapel Cemetery in Frederica, Delaware.

A quick note about his unit of assignment.  I Company is indicated on both the morning reports and on the headstone application.  Only the note on the FindAGrave memorial indicates assignment to L Company.  We don't believe he was assigned to L Company and can not find the source of that information.  Also, we can find no indication that he is closely related to CPT Robert Barnes Ware.
