Jesse-6 (3rd) was a son of Jesse-5 Warner, Jr. of Conway, MA, and Phelps, Ontario, NY and his wife Sarah Warriner.
Jesse was born in Conway, MA on January 23, 1786 (or December 23, 1785). In 1796, he moved with his parents to the town of Phelps, Ontario, NY. They settled on the first hill east of the village of Orleans, soon known as "Warner Hill". In about 1833 he moved to Michigan and settled in York Twp., Washtenaw, MI. He became a delegate to the Second Constitutional Convention for Michigan in 1836.
He married Margaret "Peggy" Hutchison, who was born in Phelps, NY Dec. 15, 1792. She died in York Twp., Washtenaw, MI on September 19, 1849. They had two children when Jesse joined the military for the War of 1812.
WAR OF 1812, Soldier
Before moving to MI, he joined the War of 1812, 71st Regiment, NY Militia (Philetus Swift). He had thrilling and dangerous adventures with the Indians. Before the dust settled he was believed to have been killed, but with a courageous escape, he did return home, and a man got on a horse and rode up and down the village streets shouting, "Glory to God, Jess has got home!" and all the neighbors gathered around to hear his story.

"I am a volunteer at the Phelps, NY Historical Society. Many thanks for all the information I found on Find-a-Grave for Jesse Warner. I have been researching soldiers from Phelps who served in the War of 1812. Thought you might be interested in what I found:
“Asher Warner [#113287467, (1777-1813)] was a cousin of Jesse Warner and had lived on McIvor Road (Phelps, NY) before moving to a farm about 12 miles from Sodus Bay before the War. His 12 year old son went to Sodus Bay to bring his father’s body to the farm with a horse and wagon.”
(From: "200 Years of the Town of Phelps" by John Parmelee p. 43.) (There is a detailed account on the death of Asher written by his son Jonathan in the "Military History of Wayne Co." p. 204-206.)
"Jesse Warner, Jr. born in Conway, MA, was sometimes called ‘Little Jesse’ to distinguish him from his father.
"He [Jesse Warner, III] was engaged in the War of 1812, and passed through many hardships and hazardous experiences. He carried a rifle-ball in his hip throughout his life. He was captured in the siege of Buffalo and made a dramatic escape from a block-house near the Niagara River. At this time he was the father of two children. Jesse Warner Jr.(sic) sold his farm in Phelps town about 1835 and went to MI. He bought a farm near Mooreville, a very large tract of land where he lived to a good old age. He was highly respected by all. His family of 12 sons and daughters lived in the same neighborhood.”
(From: "When Phelps Was Young" written by Helen Post Ridley, copyright 1939 p.131).
Thanks again as you helped fill in some gaps."

NOTE: I think most of the above refers to Jesse-6 Warner III, of this Memorial, not his father. (mew, 2015)
