JAMES WARREN, a resident of Northeast Township, Orange County, Indiana for
the past fifty years, was born in Wayne County, Ky., May 29, 1828. Reuben
Warren, his grandfather, was a Virginian by birth, but moved to Crab
Orchard Springs, Ky., when it was a wilderness filled with wild Indians.
He there lived in a fort and distinguished himself as an Indian fighter,
and finally became owner of what is now the Crab Orchard Springs, a
celebrated summer resort. He died at Fulton, Miss., at the ripe old age
of ninety years. In 1834 Nathan Warren, father of James, together with
his family, moved to Orange County, Ind., where he followed farming until
his death, April 20, 1873. James Warren was raised on the farm, secured a
fair education from the common schools of his day, and, like his father,
has made farming his vocation through life. In 1851, he married Ruth A.
Van Cleave, a native of Orange County, who died in 1867, leaving five
children, named: Benjamin N., Jasper A., Hiram E., James A. and Mary E.
December 24, 1869, he married his second wife, then Martha J., daughter of
John and Polly (Walker) Elliott, who were among Orange County's pioneers
from Kentucky. Mrs. Warren was here born September 24, 1845, and her four
children are: John T., Lettie M., Sarah A. and Harley F. Mr. Warren is a
Republican, a member of the Baptist Church, and Mrs. Warren belongs to the
Methodist Episcopal Church.
