    DAVID WARNER owns a fine farm of 105 acres in Newberry Township, about two and one-half miles north of Covington, but has been a resident of that village for some eighteen years. He was born at Union, Montgomery County, Ohio, February 23, 1828, and is a son of Jacob and Susan (Brumbaugh) Warner, both natives of Pennsylvania..

    Jacob Warner died in Montgomery County, Ohio, about the year 1835. His wife was married four times, her first union being with a Mr. Seas. She afterward married Andrew Warner, then Jacob Warner (brother of Andrew and father of our subject), and fourthly Isaac Hoover, whom she survived many years.

    David Warner was about seven old at his father's death, and was about fourteen, when after his mother's marriage to Mr. Hoover, they moved to Newberry Township, Miami County, Ohio, first locating near Harris Creek. There he grew to maturity with the usual experiences of the farm youth of that period, early turning his attention to the farm work. After his marriage he and his wife set up housekeeping on the farm he now owns and they lived there for almost forty years. He cleared the land and made all the improvements, including the erection of a substantial residence and a good set of farm buildings. He moved with his wife to Covington in 1891, and is one of the best known residents of the place. After fifty-six years of happy married life, he was deprived of his wife's companionship by death, the date of which was August 18, 1908. She was Hetty Miller in maiden life and was born in Darke County Ohio, March 31, 1833, being a daughter of Jacob Miller.
