I don't know the names of William James Warnock of Greenup co. parents the information I have is as follows: Warnock family dates back to Scotland when 3 brothers, like many other people, took arms to defend the Presbyterian form of church goverment. They were bitterly persecuted and fled to Ireland, where they found refuge. James, one of the three brothers, became a merchant of prominence in Inneskillen, County Tyrone. He died in 1667.
Attracted by the promise of religious freedom, several Warnock brother came to America before the Revolutionary War and some of them served with the colonists. Members of the family settled in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. Amound these were William James born in County tyrone, near Londonderry, who married Elizaeth Carlisle. he was with Daniel Boone in 1774 when he came with 40 men from North Carolina to Kentucky, and he was in Greenup Co. before it was organized. William James and Elizabeth had 4 sons, James, Johnson, William J., and Samuel.
I have the list of childrem that son William James & Lucy Forrester had if anyone is interested, also a picture of their daughter Malinda Alice (my line)
