Death of Ex-Senator Warner. ----- Hon. Andrew S. Warner died at his resi- dence in Sandy Creek, Sunday, Dec. 25th. He has been in failing health for a year or two back and his death was not altogether unexpected. Mr. Warner has filled an honorable place in the history of Oswego county politics and business. He was born in Vernon, Oneida Co., in 1819 and removed to Sandy Creek, Oswego county, in 1837, where, upon the same farm down to the present date he has resided. He was married to Mary E. Green of New Haven in 1842, by whom he had several children. His second wife was Miss Chloe Moore, of Sandy Creek, who survives him. Mr. Warner early took an active part in politics, and has been for many years one of Oswego county's most conspicuous public men. He represented his district in assem- bly in 1855 and again in 1856, and was elected to the state senate and served during the years 1860 and 1861. During the war he was elected colonel of the 147th regiment of N.Y. Volunteers and went to the front, but resigned after a few months service on account of his health. Since the war Col. Warner has continued to take an active interest in politics, and his name has several times been prominently before the public in connection with the of- fice of representative in congress. He was an enterprising and good citizen in every respect and will be missed in the community in which he so long held a conspicuous place. He was a brother-in-law of Oswego's well known citizen, W.H. Golt, and held the same realtionship to Hon. S.C. Huntington of Pulaski.
