The Beginning of the Job Warrick Family Newsletter
 
The first edition of Woodley C. Warrick's Job Warrick Family Newsletter was August, 1982, and was made available at the Warrick Family Reunion that was held yearly.  Him and his wife researched and traveled far and wide to locate the descendants still living during this time.  He would give an update on select and different family units of Job by publishing their letters that they had written to him. Many had tidbits of interesting history, diagrams and photographs.

1984 JOB WARRICK, SR. MEMORIAL COMMITTEE

Twenty-one people who were all related to Job by family or marriage made up the committee. It is stated in Edition No 4. of the Job Warrick Family Newsletter that the purpose of the meeting was to discuss placing a memorial at the grave of Job Warrick, Sr. as well as the maintenance of the graveyard.  One option discussed was to have the remains moved to Falling Creek Baptist Church cemetery at Grantham with an appropriate marker.  It was concluded to investigate the cost of moving the grave and the practicability in doing so.  Another option was to place a memorial of resonable size at the grave and smaller marker in the Warrick plot at Falling Creek Baptist Church cemetery.  A perpetual care fund for the family cemetery was discussed. 

After researching the two options, the decision was that it was impractical to move the grave due to age and that maintaining the cemetery or preventing encroachment by a plow was no guarantee, even though it was illegal.  So they proposed to place a suitable memorial (min $400.00) at the present grave, and a  marker at Falling Creek Church yard.  Contributions were made by family members and any left over money was placed in a Perpetual Care Fund. A trustee would be appointed over this fund and is being used today for the set purpose. 

Front Row: Claudie Warrick, Mary Jane Warrck Brannon, Betty Warrick Sandford, James H.Warrick,Sr., Janet Bryan Warrick and George Albert Warrick.

Middle Row: Leslie Warrick, Margaret Barrett Warrick, Rachel Holland Warrick, Dorothy Horton Warrick, Pauline Warrick Holloway and Lettie Mae Warrick Shumate. 

Back Row: Woodley C. Warrick, Mary W. Warrick and Morris Warrick. Bill Gaylor, Sudie Warrick Sandford, Trudy Sandford, Margaret McClenny, and Albert and Lucille Edwards had to leave before picture was made.

Were All Three Wives of Job Warrick Sisters? 
by Cathy Warrick Blow

 

    Nancy, Sallie, and Clarissa Brown

 

Job Warrick married 3 times and it is believed all three wives had the maiden name of Brown.  It has also been suggested/stated that the 3 women were sisters.

 

(source: research of Woodley Warrick recorded in the Warrick Family Newsletter Edition 1 August 1982.  In addition to Woodley’s research several genealogy reports, family trees share this belief.)

 

Job and Nancy:  Using census records and the Bible records of Job Warrick,Sr. Copied from Bible Records at the NC State Archives (paper with stamp - not digital).

Nancy and Job married before 1821 (birth of 1st child).  Nancy died between 22-Feb-1836 (last child of Job and Nancy) and 13-Jan-1837 (1st child of Job and Sally) Using the 1850 census showing Sallie as wife and birth of Job’s 8th child and Sallie’s 1st child.  Using the 1840 census (it has no names except head of house and others are marks under age categories) it is estimated that Nancy was born about 1802. Most likely Nancy died shortly after the birth of their daughter Nancy born 22-Feb-1836.

 

Job and Sallie:  The 1850 census Sallie’s age is recorded as 42 years old.  This would  make her birth year 1808.  Job Warrick, Sr.’s Bible has an entry Sally Warrick was born 7-Jul-1808. Sallie and Job married about 1836 using the birth date of their son Job Warrick, Jr. born 13-Jan-1837 and the last child of Nancy’s born 22-Feb-1836.  Supposing they followed the morals of sex after marriage, and that Job. Jr was a 9 month pregnancy -  their wedding date would have been  April 1836 .

 

It is very possible and stands to reason that Sallie was the younger sister of Nancy.  There has not been any proof found to support they were sisters, or that Nancy’s last name was Brown.   

Sallie is named Sally Brown in the Bible of Job Warrick,Sr.

 

Clarissa Brown’s birth year was 1843 according to her marriage license to Henry Sills (after Job’s death).  In the 1870 census she gives her age as 29 making her birth year 1841/42. This would make Clarissa 35 years younger than Sallie and 41 years younger than Nancy.  All things are possible but this would probably make the mother of Nancy and/or Sallie too old to bear children. 

 

Point to search - Harriet Warrick who married Josiah Brown would certainly fit into the family of Nancy and Sally as their older sister who was born about 1800. Harriet had 6 children in 1840 and was in the age category of 20-30.  Josiah lived next to her and was the only 1 in the household age 60-70.  They married in 1846.  Josiah is named Leah, 73 years old in 1850 living with Harriet and 7 others. In the 1860 census  Job Warrick and his family live between  Jane Precise (Job’s sister) and her 14 year old daughter Mary  and Harriett Brown and her 2 daughters Amy Ann 24 years old and Clarissa 20 years old.

Woodley Warrick, Sr., through Council Warrick's lineage, was a great-grandson of Job Warrick and his second wife, Sallie Brown. According to a tribute written by his wife, Mary,  they became genealogy buffs in the 1950s.  They had hoped to live to publish their findings but time was not adequate.  They did enjoy writing 2 family newsletters each year, consisting of about 25 pages which were distributed at the Warrick Reunion.  They spent a lot of time trying to locate all of Job Warrick's descendants and because of their work we have been able to continue his legacy.
