Birth: 1801
County Donegal, Ireland
Death: Jan. 2, 1878
Clarion County
Pennsylvania, USA

John emigrated from Dunfanaghy, County Donegal, Ireland in the spring of 1846 on the sailing ship GENERAL WASHINGTON, arriving in the Port of Philadelphia on 4 May 1846. Bruce has a photo copy of the Ship's Manifest. These records can be found on Reel #1846, entries #425-463 at the US Archives or most genealogical libraries. David A. Lowe was the Master of the Ship which left from Londonderry, Ireland (now in Northern Ireland). The WARNOCK family is shown as passengers #142 through #149. They carried 3 chests and 3 boxes which was a large amount as most immigrants left behind all of their possessions.

John was widowed from his second wife, Elizabeth Alcorn. He was accompanied on this sailing by his six children by her and his mother, Mary Wilson Warnock, who died on the voyage.

John's will executed on 24 March 1877 is in the possession of Bruce Warnock. It was entered into Probate 8 January 1878 in Clarion County Orphans Court, with son William A. Warnock co-executor along with Samuel Peoples. Burial was directed to be in the Cemetery of Zion Church of Shannondale, Clarion Co. according to the rites and ceremonies of the Presbyterian Church. His estate was divided equally among his 8 surviving children, not naming daughter Caroline, whom we assume had died along with his 3rd wife Elizabeth Peoples prior to 1878. Also not named were his two children Ellen and Eunice from his first marriage in Ireland to Catherine Stewart.
