David served in the War of 1812 and the Mexican-American War.

While he and his family lived in Oakfield (Caryville), Genesee, NY, he donated a parcel of land and built the first log-house school on Lewiston Road. He owned no less than 90 acres there. See land map.*

At the age of 80 or earlier, David sold his land holdings in Oakfield (Caryville), NY and removed to the Caledonia Twp., Kent, MI area from upstate NY to be near his adult children after his wife Olive died in 1865 in NY state. He purchased land in Kent Co. after his arrival in MI.

He lived, at the age of 85 (1870 Census), with his daughter Maria Jane Sears and her husband Horace Sears and their family (which also included Eveline B., David's spinster daughter, and Chauncey Sears, Horace's 81 year old father) and their three children, Levant, 17, William, 12, and Addie, 10 in Alto, Kent Co., MI. David died in Cascade Twp., Kent Co., MI at the age of 91 in 1876, probably living then with another daughter, Mary (Warner) Fairchild. He is buried in his daughter, Mary, and son-in-law Rev. John Fairchild's burial plot in the Alaska Cemetery, Alaska, Kent, MI.

He probably also stayed with his daughter Amanda Donnelly in Mason, Ingham, MI for a period of time. Amanda and her husband were owners of the "Donnelly Hotel/House" there.

*The Land Plot Map, 1858: this from Connie Rowley, a NY internet friend (and a cousin through the my mother's Crippen line) who dug through Oakfield (Caryville), Genesee, NY historical records in 2011 and took the photo for us. The information about the log school house and land-map had never before been known to us present-day (2011) Warner descendants. [Mary E. Warner, 2011.]
In 1772 Tryon County was created. It covered the western and central part of New York State. In 1783, after the American Revolution, Tyron was renamed Montgomery County. In 1789 Ontario County was created from part of Montgomery County. In 1802 Genesee County took over the land west of the Genesee River.

Orleans County was created from Genesee County on April 15, 1825. Orleans County is 23 miles across from east to west and 16 1/2 miles from north to south. It was only sparsely settled in the early 1800's but grew rapidly. Orleans County is bordered by Lake Ontario to the north, Monroe County to the east, Genesee County to the south and Niagara County to the west.
