John David Warnick was born in the late 1850s or early 1860s. His father James served in the First Regiment Infantry, Company I of the Union army during the Civil War. After his death in 1896, James’ widow, Sarah, applied for and obtained a widow's pension by virtue of James' service in the Civil War. When the pension was approved, it was made retroactive so that the first check was quite large. An unscrupulous Barton attorney charged Sarah a legal fee much larger than regulations allowed. The attorney was subsequently prosecuted and Sarah recovered $25 of the fee. This same attorney had also bilked another local veteran, who also recovered some of his money.

John David Warnick married Agnes Williams, who died in 1895. He was listed in the 1900 census as a 43 year old coal miner with his mother, two daughters and a son living with him.

More information on this family can be found in Walt Warnick’s 1999 book The Fazenbaker Family of Western Maryland
