L. L. Warner, who is successfully engaged in business as a dairyman of Bartlesville, was born in Pennsylvania on the 17th of March, 1867, a son of Joseph and Catherine (Warner) Warner, who though of the same name were not related. They removed to Illinois six weeks after the birth of their son, L. L. Warner, settling in Fulton County, that state, where Joseph Warner carried on farming until 1879.
In that year the family home was established in Fremont County, Iowa, where Mr. Warner of this review remained until he was twenty-three years of age, when he was married and made his way to Nebraska. He devoted his attention to general agricultural pursuits in the latter state for three years, after which he spent another year in Iowa and then disposed of his property removing to Arkansas City, Kansas, where he made his home for eighteen months. On the expiration of that period he settled in southern Oklahoma and for two and a half years followed farming in the Chickasaw Nation, while subsequently he spent five years as an agriculturist in Nowata County. He next took up his abode in Bartlesville, where he was engaged in teaming for more than fourteen Years and then conducted a grocery store for fourteen months. It was in 1920 that he embarked in the dairy business with but two cows and through the intervening period he has developed his interests to large and gratifying proportions, having recently completed a most modern and well equipped dairy house. He owns a handsome residence at No. 1308 Shawnee Avenue and is widely recognized as one of the substantial and representative citizens of northeastern Oklahoma.
Mr. Warner has been married twice and by his first wife had two sons: Carl, a young man of thirty-three years; and Alta, thirty. On the 24th of June, 1894, he wedded Miss Lizzie Owen of El Reno, Oklahoma, and they have become parents of three children: Clarence, twenty-five years of age; Belle, twenty-two, and Brookie, twenty.
