"Biographical Sketch" - Franklin Warner, b.16-Sep-1818, died in Oakland, CA.. 14-Jan-1901. He was educated in Middlebury College and engaged in teaching in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Mississippi. During his residence in the latter state, he enlisted upon the breaking out of the Mexican War. To the Mexican veterans, it was but a step into California, which had been brought so forcibly to their minds during the struggle, and after receiving an honorable discharge, Mr. Warner went on to the Pacific Coast. Here, he engaged in mining for some time, with little success. He then went to Oakland, and taught in the first school in Oakland, from 1854-56, in the Durant Collegiate School, 1856-60, then again in the public school. At the beginning of the movement to found the University of California, Mr. Warner devoted months in advocating the necessity of such an institution, as the Durant Collegiate School, the foundation of the present institution. All of his work was of the highest standard and for the uplift of the young people. In 1857, he purchased a tract of land called the Warner tract, and erected many houses, in the hope of inducing a certain class of homeseekers to settle there. He was so successful in this line of business that he followed the real estate business until the time of his death. He was a charter member of Live Oak Lodge No. 61, F, and A.M. of Oakland. Mr. Warner married in 1856 {to} Sarah Hinds Walker, b. in Boston, Mass., daughter of Barzillai and Nancy French Hinds-Walker. She came to California in 1853 with friends from Taunton, coming by way of the Isthmus. She was educated at Warren Ladies Seminary, in Rhode Island, and taught school from the age of 15. After coming to Oakland, she continued teaching and was the third teacher in the Oakland schools. Mrs Warner survived her husband. They had no children.
