About Our Family Research

Our immigrant ancestor to America was James Warnock, a farmer, who landed in Newcastle, Delaware in about 1758. He was born in Ireland in 1741 and was about 17 years old when he arrived here. He married Rhoda Brown and they lived both in North Carolina and, we believe, Tennessee and/or Kentucky.

Their son, Robert Warnock/Warnick, was born in 1772 and married Margaret C. Smith; James Warnick, born in 1799, was their son. He married Sina Payton and their son John Payton Warnick was born in 1830.

John Payton Warnick married Nancy Jane Harris and their son, John Morrow Warnick, was born in 1858. He married Matilda Temperance White and their son (who was my grandfather, Thomas Sterling Warnick, was born in 1882. He married my grandmother, Anna Ellen May Warnick, who was his second cousin*, and my father, Archie Leroy Warnick, was born in 1918. My father married my mother, Ada Laverne Jane Austin, in 1940 and they had two daughters -- Judy Lea Warnick, born in 1943, and Brenda Gail, born in 1946.

I have two children, Andrea Gail Hyndman who has a son, Nick; and Anthony Bruce Williams, who has a daughter, Hattie Lea. My sister has two children, Robert Scott Waller who married Carol Bolton and has two daughters, Harper Calyn and Hayden Linsey; and Michael Shannon Waller, who married Jodi Ann and also has two daughters, Katie Lea and Michaela.

I have not included the descendants of other than my direct lineage, so no information is logged here about siblings and their offspring.

*NOTE: My grandmother, Anna Ellen May Warnick's, father was James Harvey Warnick, born in 1837; he married Nancy Wallace. His father was James Warnock, born 1799, who married Sina Payton and was my grandfather's great-grandfather -- all those big families spread out over quite a few years - so we go back 10 generations on my grandfather's line and 9 generations on my grandmother's.
