Polly Warner Adams
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 28, 1779
Franklin County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Sep. 18, 1861
Oakland County
Michigan, USA

Polly-6 was the daughter of David-5 Calvin Warner Sr. and his wife Mary Russell who were married 1/17/1779. Polly was probably TWINS with Wareham Warner. Polly may have been born in Berkshire Co., MA.

12 WARNER siblings.

TWINS: I propose that Polly and Wareham were twins. Wareham was born on Aug. 21, 1779, and Polly was born, by computer calculation, on April 28, 1779.
[Mary E. Warner, 2011.]

Polly married Asa Adams, a farmer, in Gorham, Ontario, NY.

In 1833 the family (and how many of the children?) moved to Farmington, Oakland, MI, as settlers and pioneers.

Farmington was founded in 1824 by Arthur Power. Like many Oakland County pioneers, he hailed from the state of New York. Power was a Quaker, as were the settlers who joined him, and the town was first known as Quakertown. In 1826 the name Farmington was officially chosen because it was the name of Power's hometown, Farmington, New York.
