     HORACE MAYNARD WARWICK, a prosperous farmer residing two miles south of Moscow, Washington, was born in Anderson county, Tennessee, August 10, 1854, the son of Willis and Elizabeth (Lewis) Warwick, both natives of Tennessee.  The father was born in Knox county, was of English descent, and died in the state of his birth.  The mother, also dead, was the daughter of Jesse Lewis, a lieutenant in the War of 1812.  Mr. Warwick has one brother, Joseph, and another brother, Burton, is dead.
     H. M. Warwick came west in 1874 to Portland, Oregon, via San Francisco, and located on a farm in Linn county, Oregon.  Prior to that time he lived in his native state where he attended the rural schools and acquired a good education.  In the fall of 1882 he came to Dayton, Washington, and to his present home in the spring of 1883.  Here he took a homestead and set about with the limited means at his command to improve it.  He endured many hardships and vicissitudes in order to accomplish his purpose, owing to the newness of the country, but his success has been almost phenomenal.  He has over one thousand acres of land, seven hundred and sixty acres of which are suitable to agricluture, and four hundred utilized for pasture, a large herd of cattle, and some horses.  His house and farm buildings are among the finest in the vicinity and everything about his farm betokens thrift and prosperity.  He farms principally as a business but does some speculating in grain and horses.  He is one of the shareholders in the Moscow Grain Company, of which he is now one of the directors and has been president.  He is a member of the K. O. T. M., and is a leading spirit in the educational welfare of the youth of his locality.
     During the autumn of 1878 W. M. Warwick was married to Sarilda Petre, and to this union have been born six children: Viola S., wife of Olie Mangis, of Moscow, Washington; Edna J., wife of George Black, of Moscow; Jesse L., Clyde, George B., and Denny, in Lincoln county.
