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.
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 98 consecutive years (1915-2013) 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 Findagrave.com, 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.

|4th Michigan Infantry||RE: Question|
G.A.R. posts were named after soldiers (normally officers) and were established by the local veterans. Each post could and usually did have members from a large variety of different regiments of the different Union states depending on their post-war residency. In summary, there would not have been a G.A.R. post exclusively for men of the Ninth Michigan Infantry. Hope that helped.
|Sandy Vandertol||RE: Fredy Fairchild|
Saw the info while searching someone else and can't leave any info going to waste. :)
I added Joseph regardless. Would you like me to tranfer the Benson family to you?

I made your suggested changes to Herbert S. Croninger's memorial in the Whitneyville Cemetery. Have a great day! Bob
Their post? Three Crippen brothers enlisted in Brighton, into Company I, 9th Michigan Infantry, on 15 August 1861. Mustered into Federal Service on 15 October 1861, they left Detroit for Kentucky. Here they remained till March of 1862 when they left for Nashville, setting up temporary camp there before being ordered to Murfreesboro, Tennessee. At Murfreesboro, the 9th Michigan garrisoned the town from April till July when half of the regiment was captured. A week for the debacle at Murfreesboro, four companies of the 9th Michigan were detached and sent to Tullahoma, Tennessee. The Crippen brother's company was one of the four and was spared being captured, though they did fight a small engagement at Tyree Springs, in September of 1862. They were ordered to Bowling Green, Kentucky, where they waited for the rest of their regiment to be paroled. By November 1862, the regiment was back in Nashville, where Harrison Crippen was discharged for disability. The 9th Michigan, lambasted by the newspapers for their performance at Murfreesboro, had been vindicated by a court of inquiry finding fault with other troops who failed come to the Michigander's aid when they were fighting for their lives. Because new light showed their determined resistance, Major General George H. Thomas assigned the regiment has his headquarters guard and provost guard of the Army of the Cumberland. The next battle, when the Federal army was being crushed by an early morning attack at Stones River, the 9th Michigan blocked the path of the retreating Union soldiers, reforming panicked soldiers stemming the tide for the Union. Isaac and Henry Crippen were with the regiment there. For the next year (1863), they performed policing duties throughout the army, guarding supply wagons and again performed important duties protecting General Thomas. At the Battle of Chickamauga, while returning to the battlefield after escorting hospital wagons of wounded soldiers back to Chattanooga, they found half the Union army crushed and retreated, much like they did at Stones River. Again, the regiment deployed blocking the road with fixed bayonets, gathering fear stricken soldiers into bodies of defenders against pursuing Confederate infantry. So well the regiment and their colonel (Parkhurst) performed their duties, that Major General deferred command to a colonel, much to his chagrin. By December, as the Union armies in Chattanooga were preparing for winter quarters, the Federal government offered thirty day furloughs to soldiers who re-enlisted for the duration of the war. Three hundred and six soldiers who qualified signed up as "veteran volunteers" including Isaac and Henry Crippen. They re-enlisted on 7 December 1863, were mustered on 25 December 1863, and left Chattanooga on 28 December for Michigan. The railroads were running slow due to weather and they 9th Michigan finally arrived in Coldwater on 5 January 1864. The Crippens and their fellow veterans remained in Coldwater for three days while Colonel Parkhurst went to Detroit to secure transportation for the soldiers to go to their respective homes. 8 January the Crippen's returned home until mid-February. The veterans left Coldwater on 20 February 1864, arriving back in Chattanooga nine days later with 200 new recruits including Harrison, Millard and Ernest Crippen. They brothers remained in the army until the close of the war, when first Ernest was discharged on 6 May 1865, then Harrison and Millard on 20 June and finally Isaac and Henry, who were mustered out with rest of regiment on 15 September 1865 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Hello. I was looking at the Crippen grave sites and noticed it stated that you have photographs of the Crippen family. I was wondering if you have any pictures of the Crippen boys that served in the 9th Michigan Infantry. I have been compiling all photographs and records to write a book about the regiment and would love to have any documents/pictures you may have of the Crippen boys or Emma Crippen's fist husband, Peter Ackerman. Thanks for your help.
