"History of Calhoun County, Michigan; a narrative account of its historical progress, its people, and its principal interests," ed. 1845-1928, by Hon Washington Gardner, Chicago, New York: The Lewis Publishing Company, 1913, pg.418:

"Wareham Warner was another who came [to MI] in 1834. Though born in CT (sic), he came, when 50 years of age, direct from the state of New York and settled in Albion. He was one of the first in endeavor to build up the new town. He and his children are still held in honor by those who reap where they sowed."

"Wareham purchased wilderness land in Michigan in 1832, and the family moved to Albion, Calhoun, Michigan in 1834, then known as "The Forks." Wareham erected the first frame house in Albion (308 W. Erie St), erected the first schoolhouse "Little Red Schoolhouse," dug the first well, built the first barn, and along with Tenney Peabody erected the first sawmill. He contributed largely toward building Albion College. He was a major personality in the early development of the Albion community."

Wareham was a veteran of the War of 1812 and served in Allen's 20th NY Militia as a Captain.

Following the death of his wife Cynthia in April 1850, Warham married 2) widow Eva Phelps on December 25, 1850. No children. Eva died in 1890.

NOTE: I propose that Wareham Warner and his sister Polly (Warner) Adams were twins. The birth dates are: Wareham B-August 21, 1779 and Polly B-April 27, 1779; her death date is easily seen on her headstone.
