Biography of De Witt Warner
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Warner, De Witt Clinton, was born in Phelps, but early in life went to Alleghany county where he was a lumberman, and from there he came to Ridgeway about 1835. Three years later he moved to Barre and in this town was a successful farmer and left a good estate. His children were: America, wife of Alphonzo Starkweather; Justin; Mary Jane; Austin; William A.; De Witt C.; Electa, wife of W. W. Phipps, and Charles. Mr. Warner, the pioneer, and also his wife died during the same week. Justin Warner was born March 21, 1831, and has always been a farmer. In April, 1860, he married Esther M. Whiting, by whom he had three children: Hattie, wife of Frederick Raymond; Elect; and Dewitt C., both of whom died in infancy. Mr. Warner is a substantial farmer in the southern part of Barre, and his success in life has been due to his own efforts. Thomas Stephen Whiting came from Connecticut and settled first in Alleghany county, then came to Ridgeway in 1843. His wife was Polly Crane, and of their twelve children, eight grew to maturity. They were Eliza Ann, Almira, Lucinda, Horton, Samuel, Esther M., Philo, Ellen. Thomas S. Whiting died March 14, 1889, aged ninety one years. His wife died in 1878. Prior to his residence in this county, Mr. Whiting was a blacksmith, but in Ridgway he was a farmer.
