He was married to Sarah Jane Gilbraith March 20, 1900. Following their marriage they lived two years in the West Chester community and two years at Atkinson, Ill., before moving to their farm southeast of Washington. He had been a farmer his entire life.

He is survived by his wife and one son, Marvin of Washington; two brothers, James and Clark Warnock of Thornburg; a sister Mrs. Albert Molyneaux of Rose Hill. A daughter, Alice is deceased and a daughter died in infancy.
