Lime City, Ohio, November 11, 1891, and is a son of Levi S. and Mary Ellen (Brownsberger) Warner. He was thirteen
years of age when the family removed to Toledo, where he has since made his home, and here he pursued his preliminary

in 1916. Following his graduation and his admission to the bar he became associated with the firm of Doyle &
Lewis and continues in this connection. While one of the younger representatives of the Toledo bar he has already
gained a place and prominence that many an older representative of the profession might well envy, and what he
has already accomplished indicates that his future career will be well worth watching.
On the 1st of June, 1917, Mr. Warner was united in marriage to Miss Dorothy Casad Bennett of El Paso, Texas, and
they have become parents of two children; Milo Joseph, Jr., who was born August 15, 1918; and Donald Wesley, born

and to the Pi Kappa Alpha general fraternity; is a member of the Toledo Chamber of Commence, and is also identified
with the American Bar Association.
