The link to our branch of the Warner family, and Maria’s descent from William and Hannah, is confirmed by DNA matching (see the post below). It is also confirmed by her second middle name, “Benson,” which she was presumably given in honour of her great grandmother, Hannah.
Her being given that middle name also helps to confirm the descent of all her father‘s descendants and those of her uncle, James Warner, from William and Hannah.
I created this website for my children and grandchildren, my brother and his children and grandchildren, and my various first, second, third and fourth cousins, all of whom are descendants of William Warner (1808–1845) and Sarah Leitch (abt. 1805–1893) who came to Canada over 190 years ago.
In fact, the website goes back as far as that William’s paternal grandfather, who was also named William Warner (1753–1801), and his wife Elizabeth White (1755–1807).
You can jump to any of William and Elizabeth’s descendants by using the Family Tree link in the menu bar at the top of each page or the Search tool directly above.
