About James Warwick

A daughter of James and Elizabeth WARWICK, whose first name is unknown as of this writing, is believed to have married James BOGGS. Mr. BOGGS became a renowned Indian tracker and an early explorer of Southern Ohio.

Sometime around the mid 1790's, James WARWICK and his wife's brother Joseph CROUCH, probably encouraged by good reports from Wyatt, Jacob and Mrs. BOGGS, decided to relocate in the North West Territory. They probably stopped and stayed for a while in Kentucky but of this I am uncertain. Regardless, by the turn of the century they had settled in Ross County, Ohio in Concord Township.

James Warwick made his home at Old Town, once sacred capital of the Shawnee Nation, and it was here that he died sometime between 1810 and 1820. He had been accompanied to the area by his youngest son William born circa 1760- 1770. Son, William had cleared a farm in Paint Township and had at least four sons: William Jr., James, John and Alexander WARWICK. According to Old Major CROUCH in 1857 one of these grandsons of James became a congressman from Ohio, but he did not indicate which one.

James WARWICK's sons, Jacob and Wyatt, did not accompany him and their youngest brother, William, to Ohio but remained in Kentucky. Details of their lives there have thus far been impossible to ascertain. Wyatt WARWICK appears as a witness on a document dated 28 Dec 1795, concerning the transfer of lands on Elk River in Fayette County. Jacob WARWICK, son of James, is found on a Montgomery County, Kentucky Tax List dated 1797. Curiously, among the men on this same list are: John HAMILTON, James LANE and James HINDS. The next time their names are found in the records are 1807, living on Hinds Creek in then Knox County, Tennessee. Source:

    James Warwick, son of William Warwick, married John Crouch Sr.’s daughter Elizabeth Crouch. In the Warwick article, it was stated that James Warwick met and married Elizabeth Crouch at the ‘Cowpastures’ before this family moved to Tygart Valley. The Warwicks moved to the Cowpasture River area by 1759 and headed west to Tygart Valley circa 1764 where James Warwick and his wife Elizabeth Crouch resided.
