I have researched the Warden family for years. I also collected some on the Shay family.
David was the son of David & Agnes Shay.
Sarah McConnel Warden was the daughter of Benjamin & Isabella (Cunningham) Warden.
If you go to the Belmont County Ohio forum, you will find out some info on the Shay family. David Sr. was the son of John Shay of MD I believe. They moved to Crawford Co. from Belmont Co. Ohio.
According to David Shay Sr., he was born in NJ. Agnes was born in PA. These are according to the 1850 census.
David & Sarah had at least 8 children. They are: Benjamin Warden, Isabella, James, Mary S., David Jackson, William, John Waldo, & Stephen.
Their birthdates range from 1833 to 1848.
Are the pictures that you have of the Shay from this generation. I would love to see how they resemble the later generation.
Most of the info that I have on the Shays is from the census records. The following is Sarah's parents & family.
Benjamin Warden B: Sept 1774
D: 2-21-1843
married 6-3-1800 to
Isabel Cunningham B: 12-15-1778
D: 9-20-1821
they had 10 children:
Mary Scott B: 2-21-1801
James B: 2-8-1802
Sampson B: 12-12-1803
Cunningham B: 4-23-1806
Sarah McConnel B: 3-25-1808
Benjamin B: 7-28-1812
William B: 1-14-1815
Nancy Ann B: 3-29-1817
Isabel B: 3-10-1819
Margaret B: 11-16-1820
Hope this helps. I have all of Benjamin's parents & also David Shay Sr.s family if you want it.
It is great to meet another Warden descendant.
Thanks for corresponding.
Steve Peters
