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.

Hiram D. Smith (Harry!)
Now that at long last his real grave has been found, are you applying to the VA to get him a govt. marker? Tom Taber

Levi Murray
Are there any records substantuating the removal of Levi Murry's body from CA in 1851 to Albion. Any newspaper clippings, etc.

I have found on ancestry a note received in the general correspondence of the Provost Marshall in 1902 where Chandler Murray son of Levi Murray and Lydia Warner asks whether there is any bounty land owed to the descendents of Iram Murray (whom I descend) Could Levi Murray be the son of Iram. In the will of the last son of Iram (Hiram Murry who died in 1875 Moreau, New York) he states he has a nephew named Charles Murray who last he knew resided in Albion, Michigan. Wonder if this could be Chandler instead. Hiram lists none of his siblings as they are all deceased prior to this 1875 probate. Can you refer me to anything on Chandler Murray or his grandfather Warham Warner?

You said "I wrote the original one ON THE DATE OF HIS DEATH, and you must have requested a merge, even though your memorial is several weeks AFTER his death."
Your memorial, #143466057, was created on 3/7/2015 more than four months before Mr. Hingston's death on 7/20/2015. My memorial is dated 8/5/2016, more than a year after his death. The merge was correct, given Find A Grave's policy (click here) that "a memorial created after death will be preferred over a pre-need memorial".
As to the transfer, please re-submit your request and include your exact relationship to Mr. Hingston, as required by the "Fourth" item of the transfer policy.

Andrew Warner
Hi Mary

just because I confused sometimes I want to check and make sure that this Andrew

is the one who was married to Sarah Graves Warner. I know it seems like a silly question. There was so much great info that it got me a little turned around

thank you!

Charles Griswold
New Warner

My name is Charles Warner Griswold, however a recent DNA test indicates that I am a Warner.

One match is with Olin F. Warner of new York. The other is through Amaziah Warner of South Port,Chemung, Co. NY.

In the 1850 census Amaziah lived a few houses away from Asahel Griswold,who I thought was my gggrandfather through his son Phillip.However,Asahel's father Elijah's will stated that after Asahel's death his share of the estate was to be returned to his other two sons. The DNA test explained this strange request.

It appears my line may be back to Andrew 1594-1684.

Now I know why my fathers name and my middle name is Warner.

Any info greatly appreciated,
