Notes for Elizabeth Jane WARNOCK

Family Remembrance:795, p. 63. "Elizabeth Jane Warnock, third child of Presley Warnock and Rachel Frame Warnock, was born August 3, 1840, in Porter County, Indiana. As is the case with her brother and sisters, there is some doubt as to the actual birth dates and this is probably due to the fact that the mother, Rachel Frame Warnock, died soon after the birth of her youngest child. The family records give 1838 as the birth year but Elizabeth Jane is listed in the 1850 census as being 10 years of age and in the 1840 census (with her Mother still living) she is listed as being under five years of age. The two youngest children, girls, were not listed as they were born after 1840. Also, Georgie Folsom, her daughter and the mother of Rachel Rolfe Feighny, the compiler of this material, stated that Elizabeth Jane Warnock was 13 years old when the family journeyed by covered wagon from Indiana to Oregon in 1853. She died December 17, 1927, at Beaumont, California, and is buried at Pendleton, Oregon. She married Moses Emerson Folsom at Oregon City, May 6, 1855, in a double ceremony with her sister Margaret and John Edward Folsom, brother of Moses. She wore a white dress and a rose in her hair. Moses was born ca. 1827 in East Corinth, Maine, and died December 29, 1899, at Pendleton, Oregon. They had seven girls and four boys."

Family Reminiscence:795, p. 60. "Not a great deal is known about this journey over the Old Barlow Road, or Oregon Trail, but Elizabeth Jane Warnock was such a beautiful girl that they were afraid the Indians might kidnap her. In fact, one young Indian brave followed the caravan for days."

1840 Birth:795, p. 63.,2280,2614 Birth date of 3 August 1840 taken from family remembrance and is supported by age in 1850, 1870, and 1880 census enumerations. Birth place assumed to be Porter County, Indiana as the Warnock family was enumerated there in 1840. Enumeration schedules actually indicate Lake County, but that is assumed to be boundary error, as no other evidence shows a residence in that county. Father Presley Warnock took possession of 88 acres of federal land in Porter County in 1837.

1850 U.S. Census:1380 Elizabeth J. enumerated on 14 September in the household of her father Presley Warnock in Porter Township, Porter County, Indiana, as a female, age 10, born in Indiana, in school within the year.

1853 on the Oregon Trail:2549 In an affidavit filed on 17 November 1855 in connection with is donation land claim, father Presley Warnock attests that he and his family arrived in Oregon Territory on 25 September 1853.

1855 Marriage:1459 "Territory of Oregon. County of Clackamas.

Warnock with their mutual consent also on same day John Folsom and Margaret Folsom with their mutual consent and the presence of Thomas Johnson and Horace Baker of said County. Joseph N. Preston, Justice of the Peace. Received July 2nd, 1855, F. S. Kolluss, Recorder."

1860 U.S. Census:2428 Elizabeth enumerated in the household of her husband Moses Folsom in Oregon City, Clackamas County, Oregon as a female, age 22, born in Indiana. Children Julia and Henry were also residing in the household.
