New ancestors!

Thanks to the databases that the Gloucester County Historical Society is putting online, I was able to obtain a death date for Mary V. WARE, wife of Uriah and mother of George W. WARE. I sent away for her death certificate, and it confirmed that her last name was indeed COLEMAN, as my grandfather had indicated in the brief notes that have passed to me. Mary’s parents were Jacob and Rebecca COLEMAN. My grandfather’s notes also indicate that one of the Colemans lived 1799-1899, and I am surmising that it was Rebecca, who I found in the 1880 census, although the dates don’t match up perfectly. Lots more to investigate here.

Know all men by these presents, that I, Uriah Ware, of the Township of Gloucester, in the County of Camden and State of New Jersey, being in Ill health, but of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make and publish this my Last Will and Testament, in manner following. That is to say:
First, my Will is that all my just debts and funeral expenses shall, by my Executors herein after named, be paid out of my Estate, as soon after my decease as shall by them be found convenient.
Item. I give, devise, and bequeath to my beloved wife Mary V. Ware; all my Personal and Real Estate whatsoever and wheresoever; to have and hold the same to her for and during the term of her natural life, or so long as she remains my Widow: to be for the sole use of herself and my children. (excepting my son Charles H. Ware, who is to have no benefit of the same.)
Item. after the Death or marriage of my said wife; I order and my Will is that the whole of my Estate remaining shall be equally divided between and among my said Children, or their legal representative; (except my son Charles H. Ware who is not to have any share thereof.) To wit: George W. Ware, Uriah Ware, Albert Ware, Mary Etta Ware, Emma Laura Ware, Eliza Ware, Clara G. Ware, and John H. Ware: to have and to hold the same to them their heirs and assigns forever.
Provided always, and my Will is that whenever it is nessary [sic] for the support and Education of my said children, my Executor may sell and convey any Lands and Real Estate so as aforesaid devised and make good and sufficient deed or deeds to the purchase thereof.
And Lastly, I do nominate and appoint my said wife Mary Ware Executrix and my Friend George Hurff Executor of this my Last Will and Testament. In Testimony whereof I, the said Uriah Ware have to this, my Last Will and Testament, subscribed my name and affixed my seal this third day of April, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy three (1873)
