In today’s edition of Eastman’s Genealogy Newsletter, I found a link to a new and free DAR database. I did a search for my 5th great-grandfather, Oliver R. Warren and came up with some new leads and information that helps me link him to John Warren the Emigrant of Watertown, Massachusetts.
The search results show Oliver Warren to be the son of Asa Warren and Tabitha Johnson, born in Waltham, Middlesex, Massachusetts on 10 February 1752. This matches the information on John Warren’s descendants shown in Bonds. It also appears that Asa also served in the Revolutionary War, under Col Benjamin Monroe in the Alarm List and in the 4th Middlesex Company.
Oliver’s information also shows son Daniel married to Polly Bullock. I’d seen a reference to this marriage on FamilySearch.org but this information helps piece it together. Records from Monroe County, NY showed his wife’s name as Mary but in those days Mary and Polly were often used interchangeably. I also found information showing that Lucy Winslow Warren was the daughter of Thomas Winslow and Rebecca Ewer.
These search results are not proof but they are good, solid clues. I’m ordering documents from the DAR, hoping they will provide more information and documentation.
