James W. Warren, b. 1853, PA
- The last Warren relative I have hard evidence for is James William
Warren. He was born in Pennsylvania on May 27, 1853. He died December
6, 1920, in Philadelphia, PA. He married Clara Godshall (born PA Nov
1859) in 1884. They had a daughter, Ethel Warren, born Dec 1884, and
a son, Harold Stites Warren, born December 1893.
On the 1900 Census, he listed himself as J. William Warren, so he may
have used William rather than James.
According to his death certificate, his parents were James W. Warren
and Mary Hobson, both born in PA (according to the death cert and the
1900 Census). Since James William Warren is not listed as a "Junior",
the "W" in the father's name may not be William.
James W. Warren (the father) died sometime between 1853 and 1860,
most likely in the Philadelphia, PA area. I know this because James
William (the youngest child) was born in 1853, and Mary Hobson
Warren, James W.'s wife, was remarried to a Daniel Lineau or Lineaw
James W. and Mary had at least 5 children:
Clara - b. 1841
Thomas C. - b. 1843
Benjamin Franklin - b. 1845, d. April 1914
Henry L. - b. 1851
James William - b. May 27, 1853, d. December 6, 1920
James William, Thomas, and Benjamin are all buried in the Laurel Hill
Cemetery in Philadelphia, PA.
If anyone has info regarding this family, particularly of the father,
James W. Warren, I would love to hear from you!
