I'm hoping that someone can put me in touch with the relatives of Mr. J. L. Warner of Wilmington, Delaware, who lived there around 1950 and was actively involved in Genealogy research at the time.
Among the research papers of Miss Eleanor Jane Fulton (1882-1962), at the Lancaster County Historical Society, was a research note describing a letter, dated 23 June 1950, by Mrs. Thomas F. Clark [Maude Cook] written to Mr. M. Luther Heisey, a professional genealogist at Lancaster Co, PA. In this letter, Mrs. Clark mentions the research of "Mr. J. L. Warner of Wilmington, Delaware."
Mr. Warner wrote that Zebulon Warner married Mary Fulton, daughter of John Fulton of Northampton County.Further Warner identified five children born to this couple:
1. Mariah Warner, b 1794 2. Wyncoop S. B. Warner, b 1795 3. James Warner, b 1797 4. Eliza Warner, b 1800 5. Evaline Warner, b 1815 [SIC]
A friend of mine has speculated that if Theodore F. Warner, b 1818, is the only known son of Wynkoop Warner, then researcher J. L. Warner of Wilmington, Delaware, might be a descendant of Wynkoop's only brother, James Warner, b. 1797.
I would like to get in touch with anyone who knew Mr. J. L. Warner and might have access to the research he did in the 1940s and '50s.
I'm having an extremely difficult time trying to find out how Wynkoop Warner is related to the Wynkoop family and I'm hoping that there may be a family Bible record or possibly family letters that might shed some light on this question.Wynkoop Warner married one of the granddaughters of Daniel Boone, Minerva S. Boone in Greenup, Kentucky on July 2d, 1817.He served with Capt. William Gill's Company in Ohio during the War of 1812, as a Lieutenant, and fought in the Black Hawk War in 1830, in Illinois, and later settled in Missouri, where he died young, around 1837 or so.
I would appreciate any help you could give me in contacting J. L. Warner's relatives.
