It may be a bit late, but the 1972 edition of the Titus book is in error. In 1991, Titus published a second edition which starts in the intro:

"No sooner had the 1972 edition of this family history been published than further information began to flow in, some of it adding new data and some of it making corrections to what had just been published. Among the notable corrections were a two-page typescript 'The Warman Family in America,' written by Rev. Clemmer Warman in 1930, shortly before his death. In this he shows that the Warman line in which we are interested [i.e., the line that stayed in Monongalia] stems from the pioneer settler Stephen Warman [s/o Stephen Joseph Hanslap Warman and Anne Perry Fogg] and not from his brother Francis as we had erroneously concluded from a footnote in Wileys 'Monongalia County, West Virginia.' Rev. Warman further stated that none of the descendants of Francis Warman had remained in Monongalia County."

Also, one more thing I believe to be in error in Titus' book, and consequently in a lot of genealogy lines. The Clemmer Warman paper is typewritten, but it was probably taken from some hand written will. I believe "Hirgimal/Hugamiel" Warman, s/o Francis and Mary Fowler, is actually Nehemiah Warman. This may be an error in transcription, or it may be a middle name (I believe the former). For various reasons, Nehemiah cannot be the son of Stephen Warman and Harriet Ross as Titus states. Nehemiah was born at the same time as the mysterious Hirgimal, and Hirgimal is never heard from again, while Nehemiah appears out of thin air in the 1850 census. Think about the shape of the two hand-written names, and think smeared, faded copy.
