Notes for Warren Warner: The marriage order shown above is incorrect. WARREN, married (1) MARY ELIZABETH GAROUTTE, (2) ASENATH COLLINS, (3) MARY. WARREN was born in London, Ohio and lived in Cincinnati from his boyhood. Died at 204 Baymiller St. at age 79. He was a descendant of JOSEPH WARNER an American Revolutionary War Hero. The war took place from 1775 to 1783. JOSEPH was probably born about 1755 and came from Maryland. WARREN'S granddaughter EMMA L. ATKINS daughter of RICHARD L. ATKINS and ANNA SOPHIA WARNER, was a member of "The Daughters Of The American Revolution". I found a record of her membership that showed the following: "227840 Atkins, Miss Emma L., 4903 Paddock Rd., Cincinnati. Joseph Warner, Md." (Md meaning Maryland). This confirms that JOSEPH was an ancestor of mine (Timothy Robert Heuser 2008). Another source can be acquired from the following book: "Index of Patriots: Revolutionary War Heroes and Their Families : Cincinnati Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, 1893-1981 By Jeraldyne Beets Clipson, Katherine Brewer Brinkdopke, Daughters of the American Revolution Cincinnati Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, Cincinnati Chapter Published by The Chapter, 1983, Original from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, Digitized May 23, 2008, 287 pages." There is a street in Cincinnati, Ohio named after WARREN, "Warner Street". It was called Cliff Street until 1886, it extends from McMicken to Ohio avenues and he lived near this street. Was one of the first town Trustees in the early days. In 1878 he lived in Carthage (Mill Creek Township). Cincinnati industrialist and inventor, was a pioneer in the development of the elevator. According to the book: Cincinnati The Queen City 1788-1912 vol. IV, WARREN had built the first hydraulic elevator in America in 1858. According to another source that was mailed to me from the Dover Corporation in 2008: WARREN had built the first water hydraulic elevator in America in 1865. Also, See a copy of a newspaper article on pg. 171 in "Timothy's Genealogy - First Edition July 2006" that states that he was one of the first to build electric elevators as well. See The Sources Chapter in this book, for more information about WARREN and his Company. WARREN was the founder of the "Warner Elevator Manufacturing Co.", organized in 1860, and then in 1887 it was incorporated, with him as President and his grandson CHARLES H. M. ATKINS as Secretary and Treasurer. Warner Elevator in 1878 was located at 225 W. 2d, and then in 1887 when the factory was located at 14 West 8th St. Cincinnati, Ohio, it burned. Information about the burning of the factory came from the newspaper: "Marion Daily Star, Vol. X. No. 50. Marion, Ohio, Wednesday, Jan. 5, 1887". Price of the publication was three cents. A copy can be found in the Sources Chapter of this book. WARREN was listed in a Cincinnati, Ohio Directory 1890-91: Location 1: s. s. 8th b. Harrier (or Harriet) and Millcreek, and Location 2: 204 Baymiller. 204 Baymiller was most likely his residence. Cemetery records show that he and his son-in-law JOHN H. GAULT both had died at that address. WARREN'S grandson CHARLES had 3 brothers who were also executives in the Warner Co., ALBERT L., EDWARD N. and JOHN W. ATKINS. CHARLES had a very extensive work carrier other than elevators. On pages 920 & 921 of a book published in 1912 his story is told and includes his many occupations, and family history, including his grandfather WARREN. The book is called: CINCINNATI THE QUEEN CITY 1788-1912 VOLUME IV, PUBLISHED BY THE S. J. CLARKE PUBLISHING COMPANY, CHICAGO-CINCINNATI 1912. This book also states that WARREN was a partner in the firm of Miles Greenwood and Company (This Miles Greenwood is not to be confused with WARREN'S son MILES GREENWOOD WARNER). A copy of those 2 pages will be included in the Sources Chapter of this book. The Warner Elevator Manufacturing Co. remained one of the top two elevator companies in the U.S. until around 1912. Eventually Warner Elevator merged with Shepard Elevator Co. and became known as Shepard-Warner Elevator Company which later merged with the Dover Corporation in 1958. The acquisition of the Shepard-Warner Elevator Company gave Dover entry into the electric-elevator business. Dover in early January 1999 sold Dover Elevator for $1.1 billion to the Thyssen Industries unit of Thyssen AG (which became Thyssen Krupp AG later in 1999 following a merger with Fried. Krupp AG Hoesch-Krupp). On the death certificate of WARREN'S son MILES GREENWOOD WARNER, it shows that MILE'S mother is ASSENA COLLINS, and was born in Maryland. A copy can be found on pg. 185 in "Timothy's Genealogy - First Edition July 2006". WARREN'S 3rd wife was MARY, (maiden name unknown, possibly Biedent). In his Last Will and Testament he makes reference to "his beloved wife MARY". (Statement from the author of this book and WARREN'S 3rd great grandson). - I, TIMOTHY ROBERT HEUSER, as of July 7, 2006 have the original hand written Last Will and Testament by WARREN WARNER. A copy can be found on pg. 205 in "Timothy's Genealogy - First Edition July 2006". I have found on the internet, a Family Genealogy of a Mark Amanns, last updated in 2006 and posted in "OneWorldTree" and available through Ancestry.com with a paid subscription - A family record of a Warren Warner, born: 10 Oct. 1811 in Ohio. died: 6 June 1891 in Ohio. married: Mary Elizabeth Garoutte born: 4 Dec. 1803 in New Jersey. died: 22 Oct. 1838 in Middleton, Jackson, Ohio. They were married on 22 Jan. 1830 in Ohio. Their children: Margaret Louise Warner, Emeline Augusta Warner, Ann Sophia Warner and Charles Henry Warner. The connection with their daughter Ann Sophia Warner and her husband Richard Atkins and children, is the same as my genealogy.

Marriage Notes for Warren Warner and Mary: Might have had a daughter JOSIE, born abt. 1857? She was found in the 1870 Federal Census in Springfield, Hamilton, Ohio, enumberated on June 24th, as being 13 years of age and born in Indiana. JOSIE might have been MARY'S daughter from a previous marriage, keeping in mind that from what I know, WARREN had lived in the Cincinnati area all of his life.
