Warriner, Lewis H.
The particulars came today of a sad tragedy that took place in Colorado Springs, Colo. on Monday Morning July 5. Lewis H. Warriner, on that day observed as the anniversary day of the nation, took his own life. Ill health and insanity caused by nervous prostration, his friends believe, caused the rash and fearful act. He was born near what is now called Creston, then known as Fenkerville, a son of Edwin B. Warriner, grandson of Hon. Lewis Warriner, pioneer of 1837, who was the first Lake county citizen to represent the county in the State Legislature. Both Edwin B. and his father were active and honored citizens for many years, but left the county at length for a new home at Kankakee. Lewis H. was for many years mail agent on the Illinois Central railroad.
His health failed, and in 1907 the family left Kankakee for Colorado. His children, nine now living, are: Harry and Walter, both married, Walter having four sons and Harry one daughter, and two other sons; two daughters, twins, Maud and Mabel, and four others, Charlotte, Ida, Ella, and Ruth Naomi, and my authority says: "They are all splendid children. Maud can do anything, as they all can. In Colorado Springs Maud has earned from $80 to $90 a month." As the name Warriner may not again come into our records, and as the dust of three members of that pioneer family, in nameless and unknown graves, is sleeping in that burial mound on the east side of Cedar Lake's blue waters, it seemed appropriate to refer to these Warriner descendants here, adding also this note: that a son Eddie and a daughter Lucy, children of Edwin B., and descendants of his sister, Fanny Warriner Hunt, are yet living in the Far West. The Warriner name, honored in New England annals, is likely to live.

Wheeler, Edgar C.
On Sunday, March 20th, (1910) was brought from Hammond, to be laid at rest in the cemetery at Crown Point, the body of Edgar C. Wheeler. The burial services were held at the home of his brother, J. J. Wheeler, editor of the Lake County Star. Edgar C. was born in July, 1856, the younger son of Colonel John Wheeler. His wife was Allie A. Taylor, and so his three sons and two daughters and the grandchildren, on their mother's side, are descendants of that aged pioneer, the first Obadiah Taylor, whose descendants are now a widespread and worthy family coming originally from Massachusetts.
