Information on Elizabeth (Dunlap) Warwick Sittlington
Note: the portion in bold below has been changed from the original source. James Gay's wife, possibly Jean Warwick, was too old to have been a daughter of William Warwick. She is perhaps a SISTER of William, but this is unproven and needs additional research.
William WARWICK saw service during the French and Indian War under Capt. George Wilson - and appears on this Company's Muster Roll of 11 August 1756 as a private. The ever present danger of Indian attack during these years prompted the WARWICK's and other settlers along Jackson's River to retire eastward over Jack Mountain and resettle on the Cowpasture River. William Warwick patented 216 acres there in 1759. His brother John also moved to the Cowpasture at this time and took a three year lease at 4 L (Lira) annually on 149 acres that belonged to James GAY. Mr. GAY had married William's POSSIBLE SISTER Jenot (Jean). Sometime soon after the last move, William WARWICK left the Virginia Frontier bound for England. He never returned.
In 1763-64, his brother John, his POSSIBLE SISTER Janet married to James GAY and another daughter Martha who was married to Major John STEVENSON were killed by the Shawnee.
The WARWICK Brothers of West Virginia
Joseph BELL was made guardian of the WARWICK children - "until William's return". Nineteen year old John WARWICK joined the punitive Boquet Expedition against the Shawnee in 1764 and was awarded 80 acres in 1780 for his services.
In 1779, after the family had been nearly twenty years with no word from William - he was "given up for dead" and Elizabeth DUNLAP WARWICK married long time friend Andrew SITLINGTON. Andrew died 15 April 1804 and Elizabeth was still living on 3December 1805.
