Bio and Links
Bio Photo This work that I am doing on Find A Grave is in honor of my mother (Kathryn E. Crippen, GRS, 1915-1973) and my father (Russell Lewis Warner, GRS, 1912-1980). I am bringing their written stories, relationships of our extended Warner and Crippen families to today's Warner [Bachelor, Foote, Gr/Ch/Croninger, Humphrey, Lincoln, Moseley, Nurse, Rawson, Romney, Russell, Webster, Wolcott, Young, etc.], and Crippen [Bush, Fuller, Paddock, Standish, Slider, Stelzer, etc.] families and anyone else who has an interest in colonial history, early upstate New York, the settling of the Northwest Territory, and later the western USA.

Russell's name stands for excellent research and his gathering of information through the original hand-written census ledgers, plat books, walking through cemeteries, hunt-and-peck typing style (long before home computers and the Internet), taking photographs of headstones, visiting the older folks for family lore, etc., thereby freely leaving a legacy for all of us, as we become acquainted with our ancestors.

I am sharing on these pages (as much as I can) the extraordinary amount of research that my parents did. Their collected work was given to the State Library (30 or more boxes) in Lansing, Ingham, MI. The LDS has filmed it for world-wide distribution. The library in Lansing, MI has also made microfilms. Many serious genealogists have made use of my parents' research.

I have not had the privilege of seeing their body of research work, and have had to recreate, generation by generation, the Memorials on these pages. Too, I have had to find the cemeteries and ask for headstone photos. Not always an easy task.
After his wife's death in 1973, Russell completed her research on the Mayflower Society's "Myles Standish" Vol. 14, as primary compiler. His research is published in the "Silver Cover" hard-back book, and his authorship and contribution is so noted. Kathryn was a descendant of the Mayflower passengers Captain Myles Standish and Edward Fuller through her Crippen line. After thorough research, he wrote an article that was published in "The American Genealogist," (TAG) 50:4:240 (1974), "The Ancestry of Content (Standish) Crippen," pgs. 240-244.

Russell was a mentor to Rosemary Bachelor, a Moseley-descendant cousin. She has made a life-time career for herself from genealogical pursuits and publishing, receiving a Pulitzer Prize for her efforts. Russell was a family historian for the David-6 Calvin Warner Jr., and his wife Olive Rawson reunions that have now gone on for 99 consecutive years (1915-2014) in Michigan every August.

Russell and Kathryn traveled back east to MA and CT and made certified copies of Mary (Boltwood) Warner's "Last Will & Testament" (dating back to about 1710), and also David-5 Calvin Warner Sr.'s "Last Will and Testament" (dating back to 1831, Walworth, Wayne, NY).

Russell-10 was a 10th generation, lineal descendant of ANDREW-1 WARNER Sr. from England, who with his wife and several children came to the Crown's New England wilderness in 1632-33, helped found Hartford, CT, and settled, finally, in Hadley, CT.

WARNER Lineage: myself, Mary-11 E. Warner, Russell-10 Lewis Warner, John-9 Calvin Warner, Calvin-8 Franklin "Frank" Warner, Charles-7 Warner, David-6 Calvin Warner, Jr., David-5 Calvin Warner, Sr., Jesse-4 Warner Sr., Samuel-3 Warner Sr., Lieut. Daniel-2 Warner Sr., Andrew-1 WARNER, Sr., who sailed on the ship Lyon to the Massachusetts Bay Colony from Broad Oak, Essex, England, in 1632-33.

Thanks to, I have "traveled" to many more cemeteries than my parents did. I believe that in some respects I have taken the various family lines further than they did--but it was only possible through their early efforts of research and recording that I could do this. Thanks mom! Thanks, dad! And MANY thanks to the volunteers who graciously transferred Memorials of my family lines to me.

Peter Johnson Grave
While fulfilling requests last year, I photographed every stone I could locate in the Van Nortwick Cemetery.

Paul Hubert reported that the grave is there and his information is usual accurate. I suspect that Peter Johnson's grave is no longer marked. The stones are shale and are vulnerable to water seeping between the layers - freezing and thawing destroying the stone.

I will return to the cemetery which is nearby and check specifically for any sign of this grave. It is a beautiful setting and always worth visiting. Bob Teitelbaum

Jacob Warner
I am trying to find two Jacob Warner's that are my direct descendants. First is Jacob Warner born 1716 and died 1795 and is married to Ann Fowler born 1722 and his father Jacob Warner Jr born 1691 and died 1747 married to Mary Stoddard born 1682 and died 1726.. I can find Jacob Warner Sr and his wife and I can also find the 4th Jacob Warner but not the two middle ones. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I uploaded a photo (with permission) that I found online from someone who photographed the entire cemetery in 2007. He is buried next to Clarence A. Taylor who also owned the burial plot (,+CLARENCE+A.&appid=11&cmOcc=TAYLOR,+BABY+BOY&unit=489)

Mariah Slawson
Hi! I took photos of the main stone belonging to the Slawson Family in Horton Cemetery. I did not locate Mariah's grave. I did see Charles Slawson next to the large monument. It said he was the son of David and Mariah Slawson. I will add this to his site if he doesn't have one. Also on the other side were the names Nettie and Leander. If you really wish to know the exact spot of her grave, perhaps Oakfield Township Hall would have the cemetery all plotted out. They are open weekdays until noon. ph. (616)754-5679. If they say that they do have all the info, and you'd like a picture, let me know on here and I will see if I can get it for you.
