About Jesse Warner, I

Jesse-4 was the 2nd child of Samuel-3 Warner and his first wife Hannah Sackett of Hatfield, MA.

8 WARNER siblings by his mother, Hannah Sackett: Rebecca m. John Perry; [Self], Samuel, Nathan m. Dorothy Goodnow; David; Joshua m. 1) Mary (_) and 2) Hannah (_); Hannah died in infancy; and Elizabeth m. Israel Chapin. and 2 WARNER half-siblings by his step-mother, Elizabeth Morton: Abraham, lost at sea, and Sarah m. Elijah Wait.

Jesse-4 Sr. married 1) Miriam Smith on 30 October 1739. Miriam died three weeks and two days after giving birth to her last child, Benoni (leaving Jesse a widower with 6 chilldren to raise).

7 WARNER children were born in Belchertown, MA: Elisha, Hannah m. Lieut. Alexander Oliver; Miriam Oliver; Rebecca m. Richard Church; Jesse Jr. m. Sarah Warriner; Philotheta m. Elijah Howe; (?Mary?) No: Benoni.*

Sometime before the Revolution, Jesse moved to Berkshire County, MA, and settled in the area known successively as Ashuelot Equivalent, Dalton, and then as Hinsdale, MA.

Miriam died on December 12, 1752. On August 29 1753, Jesse married 2) widow of Dyrick, Mary (Cooley) VenHorn.

4 WARNER children: Nathan m. 1) Jerusha Webb and 2) Amy (Wetter) Cook and 3) Mrs. Kimball; David Calvin [Sr.] m. Mary Russell; Submit; and Elihu.

Jesse was a minuteman or teamster in the Revolutionary War, but is no longer accepted by the DAR without more proof. He was a Surveyor of Highways in 1799 and a Constable in 1780. DAR #121150. His pension papers (submitted for a pension by one of his sons), will be scanned and placed on this page. His son, Jesse Jr. was definitely in the Revolutionary War, as shown by his headstone.

He can be found in the Berkshire, MA area in the 1790 Federal Census. It can safely be said that he was among the first of the Warner line to move northward from Hatfield, MA, where the family had lived for several generations. The north-and-westward movement into NY then begins with his children. __________ WARNER Lineage: Jesse-4 > Samuel-3 > Daniel-2 > Andrew-1 WARNER. __________ Source: "The Descendants of Andrew Warner", by Lucien C. Warner and Josephine Genung Nichols, pub. 1919, pgs. 115-118. __________

  • On pg. 116 in "The Descendants of Andrew Warner," pub. 1919, the author was in doubt that Miriam's last child's name, Mary, was correct. The last child of Miriam (Smith) Warner was actually "Benoni"; he died 3 weeks after birth on Dec. 10, 1752, and his mother died two days later. So a correction has been found 92 years later (2011) by Mary E. Warner, thanks her sleuthing, to volunteer photographer Dave Robison, and findagrave.com.
