Edward Warren Jr. was probably born in Charles Co, MD and his mother may have died when he was young. His father may have remarried to a Rebecca Dabney when Edward Jr. was young. They then moved to Pittsylvania Co, VA to be near his Aunt Mary. By 1791 he with his father, step mother and nine brothers and sisters had moved to Chatham Co, NC. He married Elizabeth Dabney in 1795. By the 1820's the family is in Bedford Co, TN where his father died. There are many deed records from his brother's and sisters recorded there. By 1829 Edward Jr. is living in Franklin, Williamson Co, TN and owns a cotton gin.

Edward's daughter, Lydia, married Rev. Andrew Herron Jr August 1831 in Franklin, Tenn. The early Tennessee newspaper notice says all were from Williamson County, Tenn. It also says Lydia is the daughter of Edward Warren.

Sometime later they all moved to Marshall County, Miss. Lydia died there about 1844, two years after the death of her father.

In October 1842 notice was given that Edward Warren had died intestate. Edward A Warren was named executor. The widow, Elizabeth, applied for one year's provision out of the estate. An inventory was taken consisting of one three year old colt, wagon and grain, fourteen sheep, ten hogs, ploughs, one pair of steelyards, two axes, one bureau, one walnut table, one bedstead, one shot gun, one wood clock, one loom, half dozen sitting chairs, two chests, one shovel, one large kettle, two spinning wheels, three hoes, several books, and four slaves. Portions of the estate were sold off at various times. In 1846 two slaves, Adam and Sarah were sold for $120. Bales of cotton sold for $165.62 Andrew Herron bought a lot of sheep and hogs, a scythe and cradle and sugar chest for $72. There were also debts due the estate.
Peter B. Jones owed $440 Andrew Herron owed $475 Wm B. Warren owed $100 and John Herron with John Warren owed $25 These notes were considered solvent by the executor after partial repayments. In 1846 all debts were paid and a final disbursement was made of $272.
