William Ware was born 1801. Ware raised and commanded a company of volunteers at the Siege of Béxar and was wounded. With Antonio López de Santa Anna’s return to Texas in 1836, Ware reenlisted in the Texas army on March 12, 1836, and was elected captain of the Second Company of Col. Sidney Sherman’s Second Regiment, Texas Volunteers. He took part in the battle of San Jacinto, where James Washington Winters described his effort “like a wild mustang”. Ware died at Waresville (now Utopia) on March 9, 1853.
