hopefullly i am not too late to reach you Chris, I have some information on the line of Thomas Warmath b. 1775, down several genrations, he was my 6th times great grand father, recently discovered actually. John Warmath seems to be scarce in my records though. I suspect this is because I found him on the 1850 mortality schedule for Nashville, Davidson County, TN. having contracted Cholora during the epedimic of the late 1840s there. From the evidence I have found, I am confident that he IS the brother of Thomas Warmath 1775 and this cooberates some of the information I have seen about their origins on some of the online boards and family tree sites I have querried. Their father is supposed to be John Henry Warmath (Warmouth) of S.C. who is recorded by most researchers as marrying Willy House and having left a will that was proved in 1816 in Franklin county, NC. I havent seen the will myself though, I have some scanty notes that say some researchers have thier families earlier origins as having been in England and coming over to Virginia, specifically citing birth and christening records which are indexed at the LLDS familysearch center for Northfarnham parrish, Richmond, Va. I havent had much of a chance to look into their background furhter because I have been tracing from Thomas (1775) forward. I am guessing that John either did not come to TN with Thomas or came after 1840 as he is not listed as a head of household on any of the Davidson county, TN. census at any time. I am going to be leaving a detailed note of my findings for Thomas Warmath on the rootsweb family tree website for the researchers of that collaborative to review as well, another fairly acurate resource i have found online which i have cited on my own tree is : http://www.wachdorfconnect.com/thomas_warmath.htm
I did not know that John Warmath had any children, so hopefully this will help us both make connections to the generations before them. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~warmoth/
