Deborah Kitely definitely a Quaker as they were married with the blessing of the Quaker Monthly Meeting they attended. I know nothing of the Kitelys, my ancestors are the Warners. Below is what I have on the couple:
Benjamin Warner Jr. was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania on June 24, 1771. As an infant, he accompanied his parents in their move to Harford County, Maryland and as a teenager to Lycoming County, Pennsylvania near Muncy.
Benjamin obviously visited Northumberland County, Pennsylvania as a young man as the records of The Catawissa Monthly Meeting of Northumberland County show that on September 24, 1796, " Benjamin Warner and Deborah Kitely appeared and informed the meeting that they propose marriage with each other having consent of parents." On October 10, 1796, Benjamin and Deborah appeared again with the same intent. Finally, on November 26, 1796, the Catawissa Meeting records show the marriage was accomplished.
The actual wedding was held on October 27, 1796 with Benjamin Senior in attendance as well as Deborah's parents.
Benjamin Warner Jr. was a farmer by trade abut also served as Justice of the Peace and County Commissioner.
Benjamin died on February 26, 1841 in Lycoming County and Deborah in 1857. Deborah is buried at the Northwestern Burying Ground in Philidelphia.
