Warren's family appears in the 1840 census of the town of Onondaga, Onondaga Co NY,
the 1850 census of Geddes, Onondaga Co NY, and
the 1860-70-80 censuses of Heath Twp, Allegan Co MI.

The 1860 census of Allegan Co MI shows Warren's family in Dwelling #595. In Dwelling #592 is the family of Alson Field, b ca 1815. Alson was born in Onondaga NY, son of Charles and Sabrina or Subrana (Lincoln) Field, whose oldest children were born in Massachusetts. In Dwelling #594 is the family of Zadock Hubbard, also from Onondaga NY.

On the 1840 Onondaga census, Warren Field's name follows Zadock Hubbard's, and on the same page is Horace Wadsworth, who married Subrana Field, a sister of Alson Field.
