One thought on “I had to learn the hard way.

  1. I am a retired uvsreniity professor and professional researcher with lots of experience in genealogy. I note that you have repeated the genealogy contained in An American Family Called Warren, William Wallace Warren, Harleysville, PA: self-published, 1992, without warning that much of it is undocumented and therefore unreliable.I am not a Warren descendant at least not from this family but Sarah McCallister, who married John Warren March 10, 1807, in Monroe Co., [W]Virginia, was the sister of my 3ggrandmother Eleanor McCallister Talbert. So, I have both additional information about and interest in this particular branch of the Warren family. I have approximately 75 pages of DOCUMENTED information about John and Sarah McCallister Warren’s immediate family, including censuses, deeds, death records, etc. This is not information contained in William Wallace Warren’s book which is long on conclusions and short on documentation.John and Sarah Warren had the following children who survived to adulthood:A. James Warren, b. 13 Aug 1809, Monroe Co., Virginia. d. 29 Aug 1858, Alleghany Co, Virginia.B. Eleanor/Ellen Warren b. abt 1816 Monroe Co., Virginia, d. aft. 1880. Married Samuel Rusk.C. William L. Warren b. April 18, 1817 in Monroe Co. [W]Virginia, d. February 7, 1888 Lewis Co., West Virginia.D. Andrew Jackson Warren b. 4 February 1820 in Monroe Co., [W]Virginia, d. 27 May 1896, Gallia, Lawrence Co., Ohio.Uriah N. Warren and Thornton Warren definitely were NOT the sons of John and Sarah McCallister Warren. Uriah’s parents were Nathaniel Warren and Nancy Galbraith of Rockbridge Co., Virginia. Thornton’s parents were Uriah Warren and Elizabeth Hampton.I have about 20 pages on Uriah N. Warren, including his parents and two sisters, Arabella Warren Nelson and Anne E. Pare. I will be happy to share my documented research if you are interested.Janice McAlpine
