Thank you Marilyn,
I am of the Jemima family, however, I've learned that Stephen is not the name of the father. I think Stephen was assumed some time back from the 1810 census. That Stephen is the brother, not the father, of Nancy Jane Warner Loughe and Jane Warner Howser. Stephen's wife and children were killed in an indian raid, in what later became the erstwhile state of Franklin. After their death, Stephen disappeared for some years until finally hooking up with his sisters near Bristol TN and accompanied them to Barren Co KY.
Jemima, the mother, Thomas, Samuel, Benjamin Griffin, and Jemima, the daughter, all moved to Central Ohio in the very early 1800's. Marian married and remained in (West) Virginia and died in 1818.
It is before the 1800 where I am having trouble. Since Warner can be German, English or Scotch-Irish, any lineage could have been the Berkeley area around that time.
I was investigating the citation of a MD birth for Thomas in 1775 when the Samuel Warner evidence came to my attention. Samuels have been in every generation of the Warner line til 1942 when my ggf Samuel died.
Other trees list Nancy Jane Warner coming from Barclay MD, but I believe this is again due to mis-association with Berkeley, WV.
Again, thanks for your work, you've given me MD references that
I'll have to check out.
