He married Hannah Dawson in Montreal on July 10, 1848. They were both 21. They had six children (according to his obituary) but I have only found information about four of them:
- William John D. Warner
- Maria Jane Benson Warner
- Emma Milcha Clifford Warner
- Ellen C. Warner
Robert died on March 27, 1892. According to his obituary, it was in Rock Creek, Oregon, but his death certificate says it was in Mill City. He was buried at Greenwood Hills Cemetery in Portland. You can visit his grave, virtually, here.
Robert’s connection to our branch of the Warner family is proven by DNA evidence. My father and I share DNA sequences in common with a great granddaughter of Robert’s brother James. For a fuller explanation please refer the entry for Robert and James’s father and to the post below.
