Death: Feb. 9, 1872

John-6 was the son of Jesse-5 Warner and his wife Sarah Warriner.

He was born in Conway, MA and died in Phelps, Ontario, NY.

He removed to the town of Phelps soon after his father's family moved from Conway, MA, having remained behind in MA to finish learning the harness-maker's trade. He also learned the tanner's trade. He had a tannery in Phelps and manufactured boots and shoes for people for miles around. He settled on the northeast corner of the four corners on WARNER HILL, opposite his father's place, and after his father ceased the business of keeping a tavern, he kept one on his corner for the accommodation of teamsters passing through with their teams of six or eight horses,, engaged in the transportation of freight between Buffalo and Albany.

John married Susan Ann Post (1784-1868).

OBITUARY from "Geneva Gazette", February 16, 1872:

"Died at Orleans, Ontario Co., N.Y., on Friday, February 9th, John Warner, aged 91 years. This announcement records the decease of one of our oldest inhabitants, one of the pioneers of Western New York. Mr. Warner came to the town of Phelps in this county in 1801, his father having preceded him about four years. For more than seventy years he has resided among us, and has been an active participator in the sturdy efforts by which a hardy and industrious population have made the region in which they lived one of the most fertile and productive in the land. When he came to Ontario County, it comprised a vast extent of territory which has since been divided, and subdivided, into a number of now wealthy and populous counties. Most of the large and flourishing villages which now cluster in this region had at that time no existence, or were mere hamlets. Geneva had then less than three hundred inhabitants occupying between fifty and sixty buildings.

On coming to Phelps, being just arrived at man's estate, having learned the shoemaker's trade at the east, Mr. Warner engaged in the shoe-making business at that place, and afterwards started a tannery, his numerous patrons being extended over a wide circuit of country. In that business he accumulated a handsome competency -- some $12,000 -- regarded in those days as quite a fortune. With this capital, he removed to Orleans [Co.], and engaged in mercantile pursuits, in which, however, he was not quite so fortunate and became somewhat involved in his pecuniary affairs in consequence of liabilities on account of other parties. He purchased a considerable tract of land extending about a mile, east from the present village of Orleans, which eventually was sold off in parts, he retaining about one hundred acres -- being the farm on which he has since lived and where he died. His has been a life of checkered scenes marked by alternate successes and reverses. He reared a large family of children, all of whom we believe are still living, and well-to-do in this world's goods."
