Warner, Watkins, & Prosser/Moon Families
Posted by: Janice H. Dollinger (ID *****2278) Date: January 29, 2007 at 13:48:41
  of 838

My GGgrandmother was Renewed Boss Warner, & she was married to James Madison Warner, who was born in 1809, in Herkimer, NY; Renewed was originally from Rhode Island, & was born sometime between 1805 & 1810. She & James were married in Oneida, NY in 1836 My Ggrandmother, Susannah (Melissa) Warner, was born in Sulllivan or Durhamville, NY, on Oct. 8 1842-43, & she married William Watkins of Durhamville. Melissa, as she was called married William on Dec. 30, 1858, in Durhamville, I believe, & I have no idea just where but I believe that Melissa was Methodist. She & William had two daughters, one was Mary Ann, who married F. Mapes. I believe that Mary Ann & her husband than moved to Detroit, MI. The second daughter was Maude Inez, who was my Grandmother. Maude married Frederick A. Hubbard, who was born in Yale, MI. Melissa & William moved to Ovid, MI. Melissa died on May 24, 1933, in Detroit, & is buried in Ovid, MI & William was born in 1834,in the Durhamville area, & died Dec. 17, 1902 & is buried in Ovid, MI.

I understand that William Watkins had a brother, Joel, who is said, to have been a Justice of the Peace, which someone told me that he may have been from a town, once called "Fyler" (?), if there is such a place, & William had a sister, named Phoebe. I believe that the Watkins & the Warner family lived next door to eachother in the Sullivan/Durhamville area. I would be so greatful for any info if anyone knows anything about these families.

Back in the late 70's I wrote to a man called Carl Moon, whose wife, had a family reunion held at their home in the 1920's. His wife was a Prosser, & he told me that his wife may have been related to my grandmother's family, which would have had to be the Warner or Watkins family, I suppose. I think that Carl Moon lived in Wampsville. I have no idea how close these towns are to eachother.

Please if anyone knows anything about these families, please contact me. Thankyou.
