The intelligence has been received of the death, from Brightís disease, of Daniel W. Ware, formerly of Windsor, at his home in Springfield, Mass., Thursday morning of last week. He had been in poor health since early in January, but was able to keep at work until two weeks ago, when he was obliged to take to his bed. He failed rapidly until death came.

Mr. Ware was well known and highly respected in Springfield, where he had lived for the past twenty-eight years, and for two years was a member of the board of aldermen.

The deceased was born in Randolph, VT., Jan. 8, the son of Samuel and Louise Williams Ware. On leaving the public schools of his native town, he entered the general store of Edward A. Wardner of Windsor, and remained three years. He then enlisted as a private in Co H, 10th Vermont Vols., serving until the close of the late war. During the time he was in many engagements, including the battles of Locust Grove, Mine Run, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Sailorís Run, Cedar Creek, Manassas Junction and Petersburg and was present at Appomattox when Lee surrendered.

After being mustered out of the service, Mr. Ware returned to Windsor, and was appointed assistant warden of the state prison. This position he resigned after two years to accept an appointment as assistant postmaster, which position he held until 1870 when he moved to Springfield. For a few months he was employed in the water-shops in that city, but left this position to accept one in the shops of Smith and Wesson where he was constantly employed up to his last illness.

Mr. Ware was married October 6, 1867 to Miss Bessie J. Porter of Windsor, who survives him. Besides his widow he leaves three daughters, Mrs. Henry T. Breck and Misses Edith Mae and Bessie Porter Ware all of Springfield. He also leaves one sister, Miss Ella E. Ware. Of his two brothers, one, Arthur, was killed in the war and the other, Clarence, died in Springfield last January.
