There were several Lexington, Kentucky newspapers in the 1800's. In the September 22, 1838 issue of the Lexington Observer and Reporter, Jacob Warble's obituary says that he died 18 Sep 1838 at age 48, leaving his wife and 8 children.
This can be found today in Volume 40 (1942)of the "Register of the Kentucky Historical Society," on page 143. At the Family History Library, it is found in microfilm 896516.
Sometime later, G. Glenn Clift extracted this same information into his book "Kentucky Obituaries, 1787-1854." This is found in FHL book 976.9V28c.
