William Anderson Warner was born in England. He lost two wives and a child before deciding to come to America. He married Keziah Miles Goodman on the ship coming over. They settled in Ogden Utah.

William was a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was a pioneer in the Isaac Allred Company of 1855. He served as a member of the group who staked out Echo Canyon during the Utah War. He positioned himself with the others to point guns at Gov. Cummings as he arrived in the territory. They wanted to make him believe that they had a huge militia. Actually, William's gun was broken and would not fire. (Some of the men had only broom sticks.) It was all for show and no "battle" was actually fought. (His gun is still in the possession of family members)

William died young leaving behind his wife and 4 children. Keziah married the widower Edward Maw and had several more children.
