Bio and Links
Bio Photo This work that I am doing on Find A Grave is in honor of my mother (Kathryn E. Crippen, GRS, 1915-1973) and my father (Russell Lewis Warner, GRS, 1912-1980). I am bringing their written stories, relationships of our extended Warner and Crippen families to today's Warner [Bachelor, Foote, Gr/Ch/Croninger, Humphrey, Lincoln, Moseley, Nurse, Rawson, Romney, Russell, Webster, Wolcott, Young, etc.], and Crippen [Bush, Fuller, Paddock, Standish, Slider, Stelzer, etc.] families and anyone else who has an interest in colonial history, early upstate New York, the settling of the Northwest Territory, and later the western USA.

Russell's name stands for excellent research and his gathering of information through the original hand-written census ledgers, plat books, walking through cemeteries, hunt-and-peck typing style (long before home computers and the Internet), taking photographs of headstones, visiting the older folks for family lore, etc., thereby freely leaving a legacy for all of us, as we become acquainted with our ancestors.

I am sharing on these pages (as much as I can) the extraordinary amount of research that my parents did. Their collected work was given to the State Library (30 or more boxes) in Lansing, Ingham, MI. The LDS has filmed it for world-wide distribution. The library in Lansing, MI has also made microfilms. Many serious genealogists have made use of my parents' research.

I have not had the privilege of seeing their body of research work, and have had to recreate, generation by generation, the Memorials on these pages.
After his wife's death in 1973, Russell completed her research on the Mayflower Society's "Myles Standish" Vol. 14, as primary compiler. His research is published in the "Silver Cover" hard-back book, and his authorship and contribution is so noted. Kathryn was a descendant of the Mayflower passengers Captain Myles Standish and Edward Fuller through her Crippen line. After thorough research, he wrote an article that was published in "The American Genealogist," (TAG) 50:4:240 (1974), "The Ancestry of Content (Standish) Crippen," pgs. 240-244.

Russell was a mentor to Rosemary Bachelor, a Moseley-descendant cousin. She has made a life-time career for herself from genealogical pursuits and publishing, receiving a Pulitzer Prize for her efforts. Russell was a family historian for the David-6 Calvin Warner Jr., and his wife Olive Rawson reunions that have now gone on for 98 consecutive years (1915-2013) in Michigan every August.

Russell and Kathryn traveled back east to MA and CT and made certified copies of Mary (Boltwood) Warner's "Last Will & Testament" (dating back to about 1710), and also David-5 Calvin Warner Sr.'s "Last Will and Testament" (dating back to 1831, Walworth, Wayne, NY).

Russell-10 was a 10th generation, lineal descendant of ANDREW-1 WARNER Sr. from England, who with his wife and several children came to the Crown's New England wilderness in 1632-33, helped found Hartford, CT, and settled, finally, in Hadley, CT.

WARNER Lineage: myself, Mary-11 E. Warner, Russell-10 Lewis Warner, John-9 Calvin Warner, Calvin-8 Franklin "Frank" Warner, Charles-7 Warner, David-6 Calvin Warner, Jr., David-5 Calvin Warner, Sr., Jesse-4 Warner Sr., Samuel-3 Warner Sr., Lieut. Daniel-2 Warner Sr., Andrew-1 WARNER, Sr., who sailed on the ship Lyon to the Massachusetts Bay Colony from Broad Oak, Essex, England, in 1632-33.

Thanks to, I have "traveled" to many more cemeteries than my parents did. I believe that in some respects I have taken the various family lines further than they did--but it was only possible through their early efforts of research and recording that I could do this. Thanks mom! Thanks, dad! And MANY thanks to the volunteers who graciously transferred Memorials of my family lines to me.

Hi again
I could not find a stone for Rhoda, maybe she is on Henry's but not readable. I can add that stone if you like.

I did find nearby a paddock family group of stones. I could only read "Henry" and "Marietta". If you know what to look for you might be able to figure out who's who. Most of the smaller stones are either broken, missing or unreadable. Would you like them ?

RE: About George Soule, Jr.
Briefly, as its tax time in a few days.

The American Genealogist [TAG 38(1862):165].

3. George2 Soule, younger than his brother Nathaniel, was b. about 1639 and d. at Dartmouth about May 1704; m. Deborah ___, who d. there about Feb. 1710. The wills of both are given in The Mayflower Descendant, 7:210-220.


7. i. George2, d. before Mar. 25, 1697 with heirs.
8. ii. William, called eldest son in father's will, 1697.
iii. John, d. Dartmouth May 11, 1704, unm.
9. iv. Nathan, called third son in 1697.
v. Deborah, under 18 on Mar. 25,m 1697; apparently d. before Jan. 24, 1708/9, no mentioned in her mother's will of that date.
vi. Mary, under 18 on Mar. 25, 1697; m. bef. 1700 Joseph Davol of Dartmouth.
vii. Lydia, under 18 on Mar. 25, 1697; m. bef. Oct. 1705 William Brownell, Jr., of Little Compton and Dartmouth, b. Aug. 11, 1682; their
children recorded at Little Compton.
viii. Sarah, under 18 on Mar. 25, 1697; b. probably near 1688; single on May 15, 1719. She was executrix and chief legatee in her mother's will. She m. 19 2d mo. (April) 1726 at Dartmouth, John Tibbetts of East Greenwich, RI, as his second wife. They removed after 1736 to Carteret Co., NC, where his will was probated in 1755 (see NC Wills, 1910). Sarah Tibbetts had a certificate from Core Sound Monthly Meeting in NC to return to New England (Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of American Quaker Records, 1:277). She returned to Dartmouth and received by the
will of her nephew John4 Soule (Nathan3) the great chamber in his house to live in for life. The children of John Tibbetts were apparently all by his first wife. Austin's Gen. Dict. of R.I. omits his 2nd marriage or removal to North Carolina.

I transferred her to you but I think I got distracted and forgot to send you a note. Excuse me either way!

RE: Pembrook descendants
Mary, I will send you the ones I transfered to you, I do not want any others, other than those I had done. Will try to do them tonight or tomorrow. I have found all of David Pembrook's children except Alson L and then the question I sent about Ella. This, including Ella makes 11 children for him and Mary. Thanks for all your help.

Hi Mary,

I sent you a FR (friend request) and message on FB. The message I am sure is your spam folder.

Thank you!
