On "January 31, 1794, administration of Jesse's estate was granted to David Warner [Jesse's son] of Warrensburg, [Warren Co.], NY." Note that this village was established in 1790, so David and his family were very early settlers. Warren Co., NY was taken from Washington Co. NY, in 1813.
When Elihu was 6 years old in 1802, the family moved from Sharon, Schoharie (formerly Albany Co., then named Otsego Co.), NY [mid-eastern NY] to western counties in NY. Also: son "Wareham emigrated to "Chenango County [NY] as a child..."

"Belchertown (previously known as Cold Spring and Belcher's Town) is a town in Hampshire Co., 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 Mary's 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.
WARNER Lineage: David-5 Calvin Warner Sr., Jesse-4 Warner Sr., Samuel-3 Warner Sr., Daniel-2 Warner Sr., Andrew-1 WARNER Sr., an Englishman who set sail with his wife and several children on the ship "Lyon" from Bristol, England on 8/23/1631 and landed 11/2/1631 at Nantasket, MA; and later completed the journey on 1/7/1632-33 to the newly established (1630) Massachusetts Bay Colony.
