In addition to the above research we have added information on another Warbington line. This line is of Ohio and Indiana and predominantly spells the surname as Warbinton.

"I am descended from James who was in the Clermont County, Ohio 1820 census. He married a Jane Gillispie. It is her father's will that has created a mystery for us. I will send that information to you. You have so much good information already on James and Jane's family. My lineage is through John A. He lived in the original Montgomery County, Indiana house and tradition has it that his son Edwin was born (1860) in the same house as John A. In 1878 John A. and his wife Eliza Ward, sold out and purchased land in Labette County, Kansas. Ed was 18 years old and moved with them. John A. lived until 1914. Ed married Inez Oliver and they had a son, Oliver Ward Warbinton in 1897. Ward, as he always went by, was my grandfather. Ed died in a farming accident in 1934. Ward died in 1979. My father, Robert, was born in 1924 and is still living. My brother and I believe that Richard Warfington of the Lewis and Clark expedition was really a Warbington...."
