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. Too, I have had to find the cemeteries and ask for headstone photos. Not always an easy task.
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 99 consecutive years (1915-2014) 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.

RE: Karen Price
Ilah was married to my great grandfather, Floyd Price. They married in 1940. Floyd was married first to Essie May Huntsman. They were married in 1918. They had 4 children, Arthur, Lowis Floyd (Louis)Price, (my grandfather) Albert and Geraldine Price.

My grandfather was born in 1921 in Williamston/Webberville, MI. I am trying to find the names of Floyd Price's parents, maybe you can help.

Cordelia Warner
Hi Mary -- Thanks for your response. I am glad I could find some additional records because I was approaching Cordelia from the Bailes angle and got somewhat lucky as well.

Ours is a VERY distant relationship. My 3rd-Great-Grand Uncle Daniel Raymond Murray was married to Alzina Bailes, who was the sister of Cordelia's first husband William Harlow Bailes.

I wandered into your family tree because I was in search of Alzina's parents and I could find no link back to them except through lucking out and finding the 1855 NY census and 1860 Federal census when Alzina was living with her mother (William Harlow Bailes' mother as well) Levina Underwood. Levina's second husband was Miles Underwood but I have not yet completed my original objective of finding Alzina's parents though in finding Levina I am halfway there. Your research on FindaGrave was a big help, so that's why I sent you some of the records on Cordelia that you hadn't been able to find, and also the death info for William Eugene Bailes.

I still wonder why Eugene and Almond lived with their grandmother Levina and not with Harlow and Cordelia.

If I find more records I will send a note. If you have any thoughts on Harlow Bailes' father please pass them along. I am thinking he died when Harlow was very young and he and Alzina were the only two children.

Jerusha Warner
Mary: In regard to the children of Nathan Warner (1754 - 1829), I was looking through my records and and noticed you had omitted Nathan Warner's daughter Jerusha, who was named after her mother, born in 1789 in Hinsdale, MA, married Dickerman Chamberlin on December 1, 1803 in Hinsdale and died on February 8, 1844 in Riga, Monroe County, New York.

As an addition to information I previously provided you regarding Nathan's son Anson's February 6, 1822 death, though he was a Shelby County, Kentucky resident, he actually died in Franklin County, Kentucky. I still have not located his grave. Greg Black

Hi Mary,

Someone is requesting a photo for this memorial, however, you have noted Lakewood Cemetery for his location and he is not found to be here.

Please visit - checking the online burial search with the dates & spellings you used, it does not produce a match.

On the memorial that you created, please "edit his burial details" to state his present location is unknown at this time.

Kind regards, volunteer for Find A Grave...
