Henninger-Warner Marriage (1840)Thomas D Warner was born on 19 Jun 18141 in Sunbury, Northumberland, Pennsylvania.2 Currently his parents and siblings are unknown even though there were multiple Warner families from Northumberland County (Birth date was obtained by counting backwards using information provided by the headstone at his gravesite).
1850 Census for Warner FamilyChristina Anna Henninger was born on 06 Mar 18153 in Augustaville, Rockefeller Township, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania to parents Phillip Henninger and Magdalena Dunkelberger. Here Christina was baptized on 11 Jun 1815 at Zion (or Stone) Lutheran and Reformed Church, sponsored by John Ried and his wife.
Christina Henninger and her family moved from Pennsylvania to Wayne County, Ohio sometime between 1820 and 1830.4
The new couple lived in Green Township, Wayne, Ohio in 1840 as neighbors of Christina's father Phillip & brother Jacob Henninger's families.6
1870 Census for Warner FamilyBy 1850 Thomas had purchased a house and farm land where he worked as a farmer in Cedar Valley in Chester Township, Wayne, Ohio with his wife Christina, daughters Anna Maria & Catharine and son Simon Peter.7
Over the next 20 years Thomas purchased multiple properties in the area. His real estate was estimated to be worth $3200 and personal estate at $224.8
Christina died on 20 Mar 1877 at the age of 62, in Chester, Wayne, Ohio. She was buried at Overton Church of God Cemetery in Chester Township.3
Thomas died on 03 Apr 1879 in Chester, Wayne, Ohio.1 For whatever reason, burial records state he wasn't buried at the Overton Church Cemetery until 19 Feb 1889. I have yet to discover the reason for this massive gap in the records, however, Thomas now rests with his wife Christina.

A Christina's father. Phillip, was said to be of Augusta, Northumberland County. Whether this is true and whether or not he lived there when Christina was born, I am unsure.
B Sunbury and Augustaville are only 6 miles apart; Sunbury to the north and Augustaville, a bit southeast. There is a town named Dunkelbergers (same as Christina's mother Magdalena Dunkelberger) about 3 miles south of Augustaville.
