I have additional information on Josephus Warner 6379 Schaeffer 5th Gen pg. 26.

He is buried in Eureka Cemetery about 2 miles south of Manhattan, Riley Co. KS.  The stone reads:

Josephus Warner
June 4, 1817 -  June 24, 1881
Lucy Ann Warner
Mar. 29, 1820 - Sept 18, 1858
Mary Eveline Warner
Sept. 3 1849 - Sept. 8, 1857

I am a descendant of Josephus.  Also have pictures of the grave stones and other information.  There are other Warners in the cemetery.

Attached is a picture of the stone in Eureka cemetery.  The author notes that he planned to pursue the Kansas angle so this may help him out.  They owned several acres of farm land adjacent to the cemetery.  Josephus and Lucy (Ryder, Rider) Warner had the following children:
Addison R Warner b 8/18/1840 d 12/15/1861

John Ephrim Warner b 5/28/1854 d bef. 1939
Anna Cordelia b 5/31/1856 d 8/19/1939

Thomas Sanford moved to Oak Hill, Kansas and married Elizabeth Alcey Baker 7/15/1868.  They are buried in unmarked graves in Greenwood Cemetery, Clay County, Clay Center, Kansas.  I have additional info is anyone is interested.
