Charles Adams Warner, son of Park and Joanna (Adams) Warner, born in Amherst, Mass., September 5, 1829; died in Chaska, Minn., October 27, 1867. He sailed for California from Boston on March 1, 1849, with a party of over a hundred men from New England who had formed a company and purchased the vessel Regulus and equipment. After a voyage of about seven months they landed at San Francisco on September 29th. Mr. Warner spent the winter near Benicia making shingles and in the spring went to Salmon Falls on the south fork of the American River thirty-five miles from Sacramento City to engage in mining. In 1856 Mr. Warner went to Minnesota and located at Chaska the following year. There he kept a frontier store; was postmaster; took an important part in territorial politics and the establishment of  state government; was Senator for Carver County in 1860; established the Chaska Herald in 1860; was a Mason of high degree. In the History of the Minnesota Valley it is stated, "It is due to the memory of T. D. Smith and Charles A. Warner to state that much of the business prosperity of Chaska was due to their enterprise, when in the early day of competition the weight of one man's character often decide the prestige of  a town. Charles A. Warner was married  in Easthampton, Mass., September 5, 1851, to Catherine Knight, born in Stafford, Conn., April 25, 1829, died in South Hadley, Mass., February 19, 1902, daughter of Milo and Mary (Ingalls) Knight. She  was descended from David and Sarah (Backus) Knight, who were married March 17, 1691-2 and resided in Norwich, Conn.; Benjamin Knight, who was wounded at the falling of a bridge across the Shetucket in 1728, an accident in which many lives were lost, and his wife, Mary Adams; Asher and Mary (Clark) Knight; Milo Knight and his wife, Mary Ingalls, the daughter of Calvin and Mary (Horton) Ingalls.

The combined ages of the four were 282 years, distributed as follows; James C., Syracuse, 73; William A., Corunna, Mich., 72, George H., Saranac Lake, 70, and Charles, Corunna, Mich., 68. The four brothers, with another who died in Corunna in 1871, and a sister, who died in 1884, were born in Potsdam. The quartet moved to Mexico, N.Y., when young men, and all four married Mexico girls, Charles was somewhat less fortunate than the others, but his brother’s wives each lived to celebrate their golden weddings. After working together on the Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg railroad, as carpenters, for a number of years. William and Charles decided to join the fifth brother in Corunna, Mich. All four are still carpenters and joiners, however, making quite a little carpenter’s union all by themselves. It was the death of Mrs. George H.
