Dorothy Warner

August 1913 - 21 September 1914

The 1 October 1914 issue of the Republican and Press indicated that the Dorothy Warner, a 13-month old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Warner, died and was buried at York Center Cemetery.

The 1900 Census for York Township, Clark County, Wisconsin lists a Harold Warner (6) as the youngest child of (Whitney) William and Mary Whitney.  The 1920 Census for Milwaukee (Ward 5), Wisconsin shows a Harold Warner living with his wife, Gertrude and his brother-in-law, Fred Zuehlke.  Therefore, Dorothy Warner was probably the daughter of Harold and Gertrude (nee Zuehlke) Warner.  Likewise, she was the grand-daughter of Whitney W. and Mary (nee Wareham) Warner, who were early settlers of York Township.

The obituary for Whitney W. Warner from the 31 July 1930 issue of The Loyal Tribune indicates that W.W. Warner was born 27 July 1848 in Jamestown (Long Island), New York.  At the age of 15, he became a sailor and sailed in the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes.  In 1870, he married Mary J. Wareham of Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  After being married, they farmed in Sheboygan County initially and then came to Clark County.  The 1880 Census for York Township, Clark County, Wisconsin lists a W.W. (31) and Mary (30) Warner living with their daughter, Lillian (3) and son, Shirley (1).  Therefore, the Warner family must have moved to Clark County sometime in the 1870s.

The grave for Dorothy Warner is not marked so its exact location is not confirmed.  However, it is very likely that she is buried in one of the plots owned by her aunt and uncle, Lillian (nee Warner) and Harvey (Harry) Bowman.  Whitney E. Bowman, the infant son of that aunt and uncle, is also believed to be buried in one of those same plots.
