About Willard Warner, Sr.

Willard Warner Sr., came to Granville in 1807. He and Eliva were married in 1 823 by the Rev. Ahab Jinks. He ran a hack line from Granville to Newark and operated a tavern in Granville. Willard Sr. served as Captain of the Granville Militia. The family home was a brick house on East College Street which is no longer extant. Several reports of the era suggest that he was prominent in the festivities for the ground-breaking ceremonies for the Ohio-Erie Canal in 1 825. He served in the Ohio Senate between 1 844 and 1 846. The senior Warner died in 1 847, while travelling home from a plantation he owned in Louisiana. One report indicates that he was taken suddenly ill and died a short time later.
