Our 18-year-old cousin, Elizabeth Warner of Royal Oak, Michigan, has a lot to teach us about how to deal with a health crisis.
She shared her experience and her advice recently in an article on the website of the Bonnell Foundation.
I need your input on this one. I hope you’ll let me know what you think in the comment section below (or, if you prefer, a private message through the contact page).

I wrote a little story in March about a moment in the life of my grandmother, Helen Warner (who was born Helen Price), and shared it on the Price family website. Some of you may have seen it.
In my last post, I told you how I came up with the hypothesis that my great great great grandfather William Warner (1808-1845), the one who married Sarah Leitch in Quebec City in 1832, was the son of William Warner (born 1789), of the village of Howden in West Yorkshire, and his wife, Sarah Benson.
.In this post, I’d like to tell you how I was able to use DNA testing to confirm that hypothesis and, going one generation further back, to show that I’m also descended from William Warner and Elizabeth White who were married in Howden in 1776.
Here’s what happened.
It was about ten years ago that I discovered that our branch of the Warner family was descended from a man named William Warner who migrated with his parents from England to Canada in the late 1820s. All I knew about his parents was that his father was also named William.
To kick off what I hope will be a series of many family stories that I’ll share with you on this website, I’d like to start with a story about something that happened to my great great grandmother. Her maiden name was Margaret Ann Quinn (1837-1915) and she was married to James Warner (1837-1909), who was the son of William Warner and Sarah Leitch.
It’s part of a chapter in the Warner family history that I’ve been working on for the past nine years, but I thought it was good enough to share with you now rather than waiting until the book gets published.
This website is for the descendants of William Warner (1808–1845) and Sarah Leitch (about 1805–1893), and for anyone else interested in the history of the Warner family. It also tracks many of our more distant cousins, descendants of William’s paternal grandparents, William Warner (1753–1801) and Elizabeth White (1755–1807) of Howden, Yorkshire.
The mission is to research, preserve, and share our roots and our history, our documents, pictures, and stories, and to bring the family together.
