ID # 719, (1847-)
Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     James Harvey Warner was born on 2 June 1847 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 He married Isabella Misener, daughter of Nicholas Misener and Aramintha Richter Miller Aker, on 30 September 1875 at Galt, Waterloo County, Ontario. (notes: 022208-75. Galt, Waterloo Co. James N.(?) Wismer, age 29, residing and born Beverly, bachelor, carpenter. Parents Thomas and Sarah Wismer.Isabel Misener, 19, spinster, born and residing Beverly. Parents Nicholas and Armintha Misener. Witnesses, Mrs. Stevens and Miss E. Stevens, both of Galt. At Galt on 30 September 1875. Both the bride and groom were Methodists. Clergyman Rev. D. Smyth.

Note re above marriage registration. The name of the groom on the registration, made at Galt, is very poorly written. The handwriting of the clerk at Galt is difficult, but the rest of the document isn't badly written. One transcription, the above, has his surname as Wismer, and this is reasonable based on the appearance. The Misener family transcription shows his name as Misener, but this is not how the name appears on the registration.

The Misener family website shows Isabella first marrying a James Misener and then a James Warner a year or two later. Likely, the clerk at Galt had a problem with the handwriting of the reporting clergyman. Itdoes appear that the parents of James Warner were Thomas and Sarah. This is still being investigated, but the rendering of James' name as either Wismer or Misener would appear to be an error.

Further investigation may show otherwise, but since no marriage registration has been found showing Isabella marrying a James Warner, this tree will treat show her as being married once and to James Warner.).1
Information regarding the birth year of James Harvy Warner conflicts depending upon the document. The 1871 census in Beverly gives his age as 24 and so 1846 or 1847 should be correct. The 1901 census is likelynot accurate as to the year, but the month and day of his birth is taken from this.1
