Approximately 76 years old; former slave; founder of Bethel A.M.E. Church in Little Rock; delegate to the Convention of Colored Citizens of Little Rock, November 30-December 2, 1865, the first convention ever held by the black residents of Arkansas. He lost three sons and a son-in-law in a tragic steamboat accident when the Miami's boiler exploded on the river near Napoleon in Desha County where the Arkansas River empties into the Mississippi.

Original location of grave is unknown as a number of monuments of black residents were vandalized during the Jim Crow years. Descendants recall that a Masonic maker was once in place.

Bethel A.M.E. placed a stone for Mr. Warren in 2013.

Married (1) Anne Lewis, cook for Chester Ashley family (2) Mary Elizabeth, an Ashley slave (3) Louise Taylor
