Source: Russell L. Warner, GRS, went to Wayne Co., NY, in about 1976, and had a certified photocopy made of this Will. There are more hand-written pages specifying value of his tools, etc. These photocopies and the Certification are in the hands of Mary E. Warner, Russell's daughter.

Belchertown, MA:
Belchertown's fame was spread across the United States by the carriage industry. From the early 1800's until after the Civil War, when business dropped sharply because of competition from the West, there were eight carriage shops in town, where buggies, sleighs, etc. were manufactured. The first wagon made was painted light blue outside and yellow inside and was nicknamed "Warner's Butterfly".

NOTE: A problem arises when correctly identifying the location of births of David and xx 13 children: In 1789, Montgomery County, NY, was reduced in size by the splitting off of Ontario County from Montgomery. The actual area split off from Montgomery County was much larger than the present county, also including the present Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Niagara, Orleans, Steuben, Wyoming, Yates, and part of Schuyler and Wayne Counties.

Headstone dates of the births do not always agree with published data. Birth locations are never in agreement. Much study would have to be done, and even then, accuracy is next to impossible. Thanks to the photocopied "Last Will and Testament," (certified) that was gotten for us by Russell Lewis Warner, GRS, in about 1976, at least we have the names of the 13 children.
