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.

Stanley Braman & Edward Philo Warner gravestone photos
I just now added photos for Stanley Braman (a photo request) but also want to let you know I added one for Edward Philo Warner. Edward's monument also has inscriptions for his wife Minnie Estella McMullen and his grandmother Maria (Sherman) Kelsey Warner, and also his son Raymond, though in researching I found the Marble Park stone is a cenotaph for Raymond. I took the photos a few years ago and pulled them out of my files to add to Find A Grave. They are distant relations of mine through the Kelsey line (Kelsey married Warner, Kelsey/Miller line married Phillips which links to Braman). -Judi

Stopped by Concordia today. It appears that your cousin's marker has been set back upright. Uploaded a new picture and GPS coordinates.

My partial listing Concordia Cemetery lists a "E. A. Warner" in the Masonic Section. Unfortunately it does not include a birth or death date.

Please check out Grave Memorial# 137545409. I believe this to be a duplicate of the memorial you are seeking. There is a photo of the memorial there.

I have informed the manager of the duplicate memorial as well as the photographer. Hopefully the picture will be reposted on the earlier memorial and duplicate will be removed. If I get a chance, I'll post up the GPS location.

RE: Phillip L. Dawson
No, thanks. No relation; he was in my sister-in-law's graduating class.

RE: Thanks
The photo you have of Phillip Dawson is correct. I posted a real photo of him; the one you have is from the headstone, in brass, from the same photo. I would be happy to remove mine if you wish.

RE: Transfer
Mary, I was more than happy to transfer him to a family member as it should be, if you need others don't hesitate to ask. I always feel family members will take better care of along with more accurate info. sharon
