Salmon Warner was born October 27, 1798 at Huntsburgh, Franklin County, Vermont to Solomon Warner and Lucina Field

He was married to Rebecca Delight Billington on November 7, 1830. The couple had eleven children.

Salmon must have been an early member of the Church and have at least visited Missouri in the early days for by April of 1834, he was called upon to speak at a conference held at Norton, Ohio. From the History of the Church, we read: "Elder Cowdery gave a brief relation of the mobbing in Missouri, and called for a contribution. Elders Ambrose Palmer and Salmon Warner followed on the same subject."

A few months later Salmon volunteered to join the Prophet in Zion's Camp, an expedition intended to provide relief to the suffering saints in Zion. Although the immediate sucess of the trek is questionable, certain it is that this corps of stalwarts provided the nucleus of Church leadership for a generation.

Thus it is not suprising to find that Salmon Warner was called to the First Quorum of the Seventy when it was organized in 1835, thus entering the roster of General Authorities. Elder Warner served several missions for the Church, all in the United States.

Salmon and his family suffered with the other saints during the Nauvoo era and migrated to the west as early Mormon pioneers to Utah.

Elder Salmon Warner died March 7, 1870 at Willard, Box Elder County, Utah.
