Son of E. A. Warren and Mary Adams.

F. H. WARREN - Among the reliable and efficient mine superintendents of Jasper county, Missouri, is F.H. Warren, the superintendent of the Ajax lease, which consists of thirty acres on Dixon land, at Tuckahoe, north of Joplin.

The Warren family is an old and well known one of Virginia, one branch of which went to Kentucky, and there E.A. Warren, the father of our subject, was born, in Pulaski county. He left his native state and located in Vernon county, Missouri, and in 1873 removed to Jasper county, and still survives, residing near Ajax, at the age of seventy years. For some time he engaged in mining. The mother of our subject was formerly Miss Susan Adams, and she was born in Kentucky, of Virginia ancestry. She has passed away.

F.H. Warren, our subject, was but a small boy when he accompanied his parents from Vernon county, Missouri, to Jasper county in 1873, and as early as the age of eleven years began to engage in mining and ever since has been either prospecting or operating mines. He is considered an expert, and his brothers are also engaged in the same business. Our subject opened up the Big Four, one of the best mines in this district, and he and three brothers, G.T., B.F., and W.H., were interested in it, the last named brother being the ex-sheriff of the county. The Manhattan is also a very good mine in this neighborhood, and six of the Warrens were interested in that, as they also were in the H.U.E., of Leadville Hollow, which was a great producer. The Warrens have sold the last two mines.
Mr. Warren, of this sketch, has given almost his entire attention to his mining interests, although he attended school in Joplin during his earlier years. The mines under the superintendence of our subject are the New Century, the Mayflower, Five Spot, the Tuckahoe Lead, Zinc Mining Company’s and the Suffolk-Joplin. The great knowledge and good judgment necessary to manage and successfully superintend great mines and their work can only be thoroughly understood by those in the business. That Mr. Warren possesses the necessary qualifications for an efficient superintendent is proved by the number and importance of the properties placed in his care.

Mr. Warren was married to Miss Maude Cora Belmont, a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, who accompanied her father to this county.
