HORSE INDUSTRY Owingsville Wilkes [a horse] will make the season of 1891 at the stable of Jacob Warner, 1 1/4 miles southwest of Owingsville on Slate Creek. J. Dudley Warner

There were many famous horses owned by local residents. There were many citizens who dealt in horse breeding. "Jacob Warner, who had Owingsville Wilkes, Dillard Dudley and Ben Franklin."

From an illustrated History of Bath County, Kentucky by J.A. Richards Jacob Warner was born near Owingsville, Bath County, on June 8, 1827, being a grandson of Jacob Warner, the original pioneer who cleared the farm and built the brick residence on Slate Creek long in the possession of the late Dudley Warner. He was a man of the highest integrity known far and wide for his honorable condust and fair dealings. He was a practical farmer and prospered well, owning several hundred acres of valuable land at the time of his death. He died in 1903 leaving surviving him three children, Dudley Warner, William Warner and Mrs. Jeff Dawson. For many years he had in his possession an old razor, the property of his grandfather, Jacob Warner, who came from Pennsylvania to this county in 1796 and settled on Slate Creek. This razor bore the engraves address "Dickson and Palmer, Flemingsburg, Kentucky" on the blade and dated 1776, though the latter was believed to be the name of the style of the razor and not the date of its manufacture. Wade & Butcher, Sheffield were the makers.

January 16, 2003 By Darrell Warner Today I called Mary Linda (Warner) Copher who lives in Owingsville, Kentucky. When I visited the Warner farm located in Owingsville in 2001 I looked for the 2 houses marked as Jacob Warner residence off an old 1880 map of Owingsville and the area around it. I found the one built by Jacob Warner the son of William and the grandson of Jacob. The other one on the map was located across Slate Creek. I walked along Slate Creek and did not see a way to cross and did not see a house on the other side. This house should have been the original Jacob Warner home who cleared the land. After talking with Mary she remembered the house. She said her father even thought of fixing it up to be a fishing cabin but never did. She said it fell in and was torn down many years ago. She did not realize what the historical value was nor did her father. She did mention that the whirlpool in the bend of Slate Creek was still there. Mary was a wonderful person to talk too and made the offer to help me find things as needed. She said to keep in touch.

Know all men by these presents that I Jacob Warner now seventy six years of age and a resident of Bath County, Kentucky, do make and publish this writing as my last will and testament to wit.

My wish is that my three children, William T. Warner, James Dudley Warner and Mary Susan Dawson shall be made equal in the division and distribution of my estate left at my death.

The share divised to my daughter Mary Susan Dawson, she is to have and hold for her own use for and during her life. To have a life estate only therein and at her death if she leaves surviving any children to pass to such children equally and if any of them shall die before they are twenty one years of age childless then to the survivors and if they all shall die leaving no descendants then said property devided to them to return and vest equally to my said two sons if then alive or to their descendants if they or either of them be dead.

I hereby make and constitute my said sons W. T. and James D. Warner as my Executors who may qualify as such without giving security and having confidence that they will act justly in settleing up my estate they are not to be required to return to the court any inventory or appraisement of the property that may come to their hands nor are they to make any settlement of their accounts with the Courts as other financiaries are required by law.

I do hereby make this codicil to the foregoing will made by me on July 8th1903. That my son W. T. Warner and Mary Susan Dawson are each to be charged with the sum of twelve hundred dollars in making partition or division of my estate.

That my household and kitchen furniture and other household goods are to be divided between my three children, Dudley to have one half and William T. and Mary Susan one fourth each.
