Caleb Warren Genealogy

Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana

Caleb was born on Jun 1, 1799 in Washington Co., Pennsylvania. He married Elizabeth AULT, daughter of Michael AULT (1782-Jan 13, 1849) & Christina MYERS (abt 1774-Oct 17, 1854). Elizabeth was born abt 1800 in Washington Co., Pennsylvania. Caleb was a river man and ran on the Ohio and Mississippi from New Albany to New Orleans. It seems as if the Warrens rather liked boats. In 1933, Addie Hardesty Pipkin had a record of the Warrens owning a boat in Penn. manned by twenty men that was used by the Revolutionary forces.  Gregg Warren writes: "Caleb was a ship carpenter. I know that in the late 1700s and early 1800s, the Upper Ohio Valley was the site of much ship building. I know Wheeling, WV, was a site as was the location where Pipe Creek in Belmont County, Ohio, empties into the Ohio River. Pipe Creek runs along Co. Road 54, the same road that travels past Daniel and Sarah Warren's homestead (my farm) and past the cemetery where they are buried. The shipyard would be about four miles from the farm. Caleb was 5 years-old in 1804 when he came with Haddock to Belmont County. I wonder if when he got older, he could have gained boat building experience at one of those sites, especially since the Pipe Creek ship yard was so close to his brother Daniel's place?" Caleb and Elizabeth had children: Henry James, William L., Mary Ann and Sarah Elizabeth (Lizzie).  Lizzie married Julius Armstrong, a lumber dealer of Belmont County, Ohio and they show up there in the 1880 Census. Elizabeth died in New Albany, Floyd Co., Indiana, on Jun 29, 1854; she was 54.
