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. 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.

Andrew Warner
Hi Mary

just because I confused sometimes I want to check and make sure that this Andrew

is the one who was married to Sarah Graves Warner. I know it seems like a silly question. There was so much great info that it got me a little turned around

thank you!

Charles Griswold
New Warner

My name is Charles Warner Griswold, however a recent DNA test indicates that I am a Warner.

One match is with Olin F. Warner of new York. The other is through Amaziah Warner of South Port,Chemung, Co. NY.

In the 1850 census Amaziah lived a few houses away from Asahel Griswold,who I thought was my gggrandfather through his son Phillip.However,Asahel's father Elijah's will stated that after Asahel's death his share of the estate was to be returned to his other two sons. The DNA test explained this strange request.

It appears my line may be back to Andrew 1594-1684.

Now I know why my fathers name and my middle name is Warner.

Any info greatly appreciated,

The above two memorials that you created are listed as being buried in the Summit View Cemetery in Ottawa, IL. I am currently going through the cemetery records for Summit View, and neither person appears to be buried in Summit View Cemetery.

I added the two Kistlers that are buried in the Mayo plot, and I double checked all of the records for possible misspellings, etc..., but they do not appear to be buried there.

If you'd like you could check with the La Salle County Genealogy Guild to verify where they were buried. They have records of all burials up to the year 2000.

Hope that helps.

Hannah Church Darling (1780-1855)
Richard Church (1741-1807) and Rebecca Warner (1745-1809) were my 4th great grandparents. IAll of their children were born in Massachusetts, with the apparent exception of Hannah Church.

It does not make sense to me that Hannah would have been born in New York state on 6 April 1780 when John Church, the sibling born immediately before her in on 22 June 1777 was born in Williamsburg, Hampshire County, MA (268 miles from Hopewell Center) and when Jesse Church, the sibling immediately after her was born in Feb 1783 in Washington, Berkshire County, MA, 255 miles from Hopewell Center.

I know that Richard Church and Rebecca Warner moved to Riga New York in the spring of 1806--but even that is 52 miles away from Hopewll Center. I don't quite understand how--or why--they would have moved to New York state just to have one child and then move back to MA for several years before finally moving to Riga NY in 1806.

Does anyone have any information to clarify this?

Here are the children born to Richard Church and Rebecca Warner:
1). Samuel Church born 1767 in Hatfield, MA
2) Miriam Church born 1769 in Hatfield MA
3) Lemuel Church born 1770 in Hatfield MA
4) Lucy Church born 1772 in Williamsburg MA
5) Elihu Church born 1774 in Williamsburg MA
6) Richard Church born 176 in Williamsburg MA
7) John Church born 1777 in Williamsburg MA
8) Hannah Church born 1780 in Hopewell Center, Ontario County NY
9) Jesse Church born 1783 in Washington, Berkshire County MA
10) Horace Church born 1785 in Washington, Berkshire County MA
11) Clarissa Church born 1788 in Washington, Berkshire County MA

Marjorie Warner Phillips
Hi Mary -
Greetings from your Washington State Warner Cousin. I'm sending news that we recently lost my dear grandmother - Betty Phillips Davis #166543514 on 7/6/2016. (Her mother is Marjorie (Warner) Phillips 64073906.)

I will be managing Betty's memorial but I was looking at Marjorie-9 Roseanna, I noticed some of her family information is missing. Would you please transfer her to me so I can update?

Thank you. I think of you often and want to thank you for your dedication to our Warner family and all you do.
Sincerely, Kim SteMarie

Thanks so much for your information on the Warners. I descended from Lucinda. It looks like she may not have been in your direct line but your information is very helpful.

Israel Standish (Norwich, CT)
Do you know in what part of the Norwich City Cemetery that Israel Standish is buried? That cemetery is quite large and I visited last year trying to find him, but I couldn't. If you aren't sure where he is buried, do you know of an office for the cemetery or someone I could contact to find out where he is buried?

Eliz. Warner & Ethan Curtiss-Wallingford, CT
Hi again Mary,

Since you are a Warner, and have extensive knowledge, I thought I'd ask if you know anything or have sources for Lydia Curtiss (1777-1958) and Isaac Bartholomew (1776-1828) both born and, I believe, died in Wallingford, CT. Lydia was the daughter of Ethan Curtiss, b. 1753 Wallingford, d. 1815 Burlington, CT & Elizabeth Warner, b.1758 East Haddam, CT, d. 1810 Burlington, CT. Elizabeth Warner was the daughter of Jabez Warner & Hannah Brainerd.

I've been searching for years for a source of Lydia Curtiss' birth and her marriage to Isaac Bartholomew. So far, all I could find in print is in the "Record of the Bartholomew Family," by Geo. Wells Bartholomew, Jr., 1885, p. 213.

Lydia & Isaac are my paternal 4th great grandparents and this Curtiss line goes to Anne Hutchinson. This is a weak link I have to her. Any insights you may have would be immensely appreciated. Many thanks.
