Descendants of Christeyan Wanner
Generation No. 1
1. Christeyan4 Wanner (Johannes Michael3, Hans Ludwig2, Hans1) was born 07 Nov 1754 in Beaver Dam,
New York, and died 21 Mar 1833 in Niagara, Ontario. He married Gertrude Ecker 16 May 1775, daughter of
Peter Fecker and Maria Rickert. She was born 17 Dec 1759, and died 29 Aug 1823 in Niagara, Ontario.
Notes for Christeyan Wanner:
Name was changed from Wanner to Warner some time after 1783.
The following was written by Margaretha Warner. This was taken from a paper she titled "Story of a Family."
Michael's son. Christian is one of the strong characters of this story. He was married to Charity (Gertrude Ecker) and was the father of Michael and Peter (twins), Matthew and 9 girls. He had a most adventuresome life. At first he belonged to the American forces, but when his father's property was confiscated and he lost all his own, he joined Butler's Rangers. He fought with them for 7 years. This was a band of terrorists and he was eventually captured and imprisoned. Then he took his father, his wife and a child (riding in a basket on a cow) and walked through the crossing at the Falls. He settled at Upper Canada. This is now the Province of Ontario. Here he proceeded to settle and build a settlement known as Warner Settlement. This is now known as Niagara on the Lake. Christian is still celebrated in Niagara, Ontario. He is buried in Warner cemetery. Dates on his monument show that he died here on March 21, 1833. Christian was a pioneer settler in Niagara Township, Upper Canada. Census of Niagara - 30 November, 1783
Sgt. Christ'n Wanner, age 29 Gertraunt Wanner, age 25 Mary Wanner, age 5 Elizabeth Wanner, age 22
Note (M.W.B.): The name of Christian Warner's wife was recorded as Gertraut or Gertrude until 1805, when it
became "Charity." It is thought that she changed her name, perhaps at the conversion to Methodism.
There was a camp meeting ground on the farm of Christian Warner, in a superb growth of forest with an unlimited supply of excellent spring water. Camp meetings ceased long ago and a maple sugar camp held its place for many years. The first home was a log cabin, the second stone roughcast. Christian Warner, his wife, and two children, from Albany Co., N.Y. crossed into Canada late in the summer of 1783. The children were carried in baskets slung across the back of a cow. This cow, an axe, and an augur constituted the chief equipment for this family to start a new home in the unbroken solitudes of the Canadian wilderness. The tools were the only ones of their kind in the district, and were of priceless use to the pioneer settlers before tools were later supplied by the government. Christian Warner was a class leader for forty-five years, (1788-1833), Steward of the Niagara Circuit, (1796-1823), a successful local preacher and exhorter, noted for his power in prayer. He insisted on simplicity of dress and was inflexibly stern to rebuke pride. He was the soul of hospitality in church relations and neighborly needs. Obesity affected him in his old age. He was said to have weighed over 300 pounds and used two chairs, front to front, the backs of the chairs under his arms for rests. This affliction developed a spirit of dictation. The sincerity of his convictions was clear to those who knew his early career, but were ridiculed by the young people. He condemned the wearing of suspenders as a wicked concession to pride, and his sons used to hide their suspenders 2 in the barn. Finally, with increasing weight, he was compelled to have shoulder support for his trousers, but refused to wear more than one, considering one less pretentious.
It will not be forgotten that he fought for six terrible, depleting years in the fierce frontier strife of the American Revolution, settled in Canada, was well known as a sweet-spirited religious leader at whose side youth loved to kneel in prayer. His service as "local" preacher or lay evangelist was maintained with marked efficiency for many years throughout the neighboring townships."MICROFILM RECORDS, ST.

Conflicting dates on the marriage of Christeyan and Gertraud "Charity" Warner. A second date of 1777 was found as their marriage date. However, I found the full date as a marriage date on a Family Tree site and will try to find a reference confirmation in the future.
History records that Christeyan was jailed in the winter of 1777 in Albany, N.Y. over a land petition
disagreement. Then, in the spring of 1778, Christeyan became a Sergeant in the Butlers' Rangers.
His children were baptized at Beaverdam Reform Church, New York, around 1783, they then petitioned for land in Upper Canada and moved to Niagara Falls, Ontario. In 1794, Christian joined the Lincoln Militia, in Ontario, resigning later, in 1810, with the rank of Captain. He died in 1833 and is buried in Warner Methodist Cemetery, Lincoln County, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
There still stands a Residence of the Warner Settlement at Niagara Falls, Ontario, as well as a Monument and Historical Plaque to Christian, his wife and family in the Warner Cemetery, which is near St. Catherines.

Below notes from Margaretha Warner:4
On Cover: "W. 1834. Original last Will and Testament of Christian Warner late of Niagara Yeoman deceased.
Filed in this office the 25th day of January 1934.
Chas. B. Secord, Registrar."
RECORDS OF JULIA ANN (WARNER) BUTT: UNDATED:
"CHRISTIAN WARNER WAS A VERY BIG MAN, WEIGHING BETWEEN 350 AND 400 POUNDS. HE
WOULD NEED TWO CHAIRS TO SIT ON. WHEN HE DIED, A COFFIN WAS MADE TO MEASURE IN
HIS HOUSE. THEN IT WAS FOUND NECESSARY TO REMOVE THE FRONT DOOR FRAME IN ORDER
TO GET THE COFFIN OUT. HE DIED AT THE HOME OF HIS GRANDSON, CHRISTIAN JR., IN A
STONE HOUSE SLIGHTLY TO THE NORTH OF THE FRAME HOUSE NOW OCCUPIED BY MISS ELLA
WARNER. HE AND HIS WIFE LIVED WITH CHRISTIAN JR. FOR SOME TIME BEFORE HIS DEATH.
THEY FIRST LIVED IN A LOG HOUSE AT THE CORNER OF THE FARM, WHERE A FRAME HOUSE
FURTHER NOTES BY MARGARETHA WARNER:
"Until Recent years, the foundations of a house could be traced on the north side of the Warner road. In 1940, when the monument was erected to Christian Warner, the Research Committee concluded that this was the site of the home of the old Class leader. The house may have burned, for the clock had been through a fire." Miss Ella Warner reported in later notes that it DID burn.
There may have been original markers on the graves of Christian and Charity Warner, which later disintegrated or were destroyed by vandals. For many years, the upright stock of a musket, said to have belonged to Christian Warner, marked his grave, but it disappeared about 1930.
Notes for Gertrude Ecker:
Family tree notes indicate Charity (or Gertrude) was born in 1757, the daughter of Peter and Maria (Richert)
Fecker. Later, her Maiden name shows as Ecker.
Later changed her name to Charity. In 1783 - her name was listed as Gertruce, but in 1805, she signed her name Charity on a land deed. Charity being the English equivalent of Gertrude. They had nine daughters total, but not all are listed. There is no available information on the date of her death, but there is a record of her as administrator of Christian's will in 1834. The Family Bible, willed to Charity, is now in the possession of Mrs. Shirley Hey, Niagara Falls, Ont. She is descended from Peter Warner, eldest son of Christian.

Notes for Ida May Warner:
Known as May, left high school in 1904 to care for her brother Bert who was sick with TB. I think she ran away
from home to marry Lloyd, as her family disapproved of him.
Notes for Lloyd Randolph Dewitt Faling:
Lloyd Randolph DeWitt Fayling saw service in the regular army, and in 1894 during the Chicago strikes served as special Deputy United States Marshal under Marshal Brinton, and commanded a squad of deputies under Colonel Nichols of the Thiel Detective Service, doing hard and effective service throughout the strike. Later he did secret service work in several of the States, among other things holding arguments with "moonshiners" through the medium of Winchesters. After participating in several filibustering expeditions to Cuba as War Correspondent, Lloyd entered the Secret Service of the Cuban Junta, with the rank of Lieutenant, but was soon transferred to the Line under the command of General Gomez, and for two years saw much hard fighting in the interior of Cuba 1896-97. He was twice captured by the Spaniards, the second time being confined in a Spanish prison until he was physically prostrated. When war was declared between the United States and Spain, Major Fayling regained his health, and though now free and holding a lucrative position in civil life, he raised, at his own expense, the first Volunteer company in Ohio that was offered from that State for service in the Spanish-American War with Spain, of which he was unanimously elected Captain for gallant service and later received the brevet-rank of Major. But, not being a part of the regular militia organization, the Company was not sent to the front, owing to political intrigue in the State. The Company spent the summer in hard drill and camp life, but saw no fighting.
For some months previous to the Galveston 1900 storm, Major Fayling had been the southern manager of a New York corporation, with offices at Galveston. He had become familiar with the city, and when the storm broke he not only knew what should be done, but had the training which qualified him to take the initiative in restoring order and protecting life and property. An account of his services in the work of rescue and that of maintaining order in the storm-stricken city is of historical value, and interesting because of its heroic character. Official record states that Major Fayling was at Galveston, Texas, during the great hurricane and flood of Sept. 8, 1900; rescued 43 persons at the peril of his own life; took command of the city, under martial law, and restored and maintained law and order. He formed a battalion of the handful of survivors of Battery O, 1st U.S. Regular Artillery and Militiamen, whom he drafted into service, and was in absolute command of the city under martial law until relieved by the Adjutant-General of Texas, with the most of the National Guard of that State.
The authorities approved of his work and he received the official thanks of the city of Galveston, through the
Mayor, who said officially, in a letter of thanks, that 'Major Fayling's work was the saving of the city.' Major
Fayling also received a gold medal, costing several hundred dollars, from citizens of Texas, inscribed "For
Bravery," (Note, this medal can be seen on my other family tree website.)
Lloyd had one common law marriage to Dorothy - producing a daughter, Sylvia, born about January 1910.
His second marriage to Ida May Warner, daughter of Andrew Hall Warner Jr. and Rhoda Eleanor Snelling,
produced three children - Enid, Lloyd R. C., and Dione.

+ 225 i. David Michael10 Smith, born 21 Feb 1944 in Highland Park, Michigan.
226 ii. Tina Marie Smith, born 08 Jun 1950; died 09 Jun 1965; Adopted child.
Notes for Tina Marie Smith:
Died from a Strep disease that attacked her kidneys. The cure was found, but not treated in the proper
doses and back then, they didn't have dialysis like they do now. The doctor actually had the right two
medications to fight the strep infection, but after a long battle and could not keep the kidneys functioning
long enough to clear it from her system. Poor Tina died a day after her 15th birthday.
183. Lloyd Randolph Clinton9 Fayling II (Ida May8 Warner, Andrew Hall Warner7 Jr., Andrew Hall6
Warner, Matthew5, Christeyan4 Wanner, Johannes Michael3, Hans Ludwig2, Hans1) was born 05 May 1917, and died 08 Nov 1982 in Res: Kalamazoo, MI. He married Elza Ella Gostola 26 Jun 1938, daughter of Joseph
Gostola and Mary Horvath. She was born 05 May 1918 in Indiana.
Notes for Lloyd Randolph Clinton Fayling II:
After their marriage, Lloyd and Elza lived with Enid for a short time and was also offered a chance to go into
business with Glenn Faling.
He ended up working for Two Legs Pant Company (also known as Kalamazoo Pant Company), later known as
Redwood and Ross. Two Legs Pant Company sent him to Kalamazoo for a while, giving him one pair of pants
and one shirt, which Elza washed and pressed every night for work. Later, they transferred them to Ohio, where17 he joined the Ohio State Guard. The war broke out and he wanted to enlist. Elza didn't want him too, but Lloyd wanted to. They had one child, Sue, so Elza had to sign the exempt form, which was the law back then for a man to join the armed services, during times of conflict.
Elza took Lloyd's old job at Two Legs in Columbus, Ohio, leaving Sue with a private family, while she held the
position of manager at the clothing company. On one of her rare visits to see Lloyd in Hopkinsville, Kentucky,
during one of his two-day leave's, she got pregnant with Randy. She worked as long as she could, but then,
having to leave her job and having no other place to live, she returned home live with her mother. Lloyd came
home long enough to see "Randy" born. He came back once more when Randy was 3 weeks old, but didn't see Randy, only saw Elza before he was shipped out. Elza saw him once more in Pittsburgh, Penn., then didn't see him again for 2 1/2 years. He was promoted (through Officers Training - Louisville, KY). Lloyd received the highest honor in the class - 'honor man' immediate rank 2nd Lieutenant. Elza always regretted that she couldn't pin on his bars. All the other wives were allowed to pin the bars on their husband's uniforms, but for Lloyd, the general did the honor since he won the highest award. Overseas, Lloyd later awarded field promotions to 1st Lieutenant and then Captain. He went through the whole European theatre, staying in England a long time and later landing in France (losing over 4000 at Omaha Beach), He fought with Patton and ahead of many of main force. He helped developed the machinery to cut through the hedgerows, through Yugoslavia and many small countries before reaching Germany.
At the end of World War II, Lloyd decided to return to his goal of becoming a lawyer. He had been to Western
Michigan and Notre Dame before the war, so had to choose between a higher post, he was offered, if he stayed in the Army, or his former dream of a legal profession. He knew if he stayed in the Army, he'd get used to the money. So, using the G.I. Bill, he went back to school. Both he and Elza worked more than one job, lived in a basement apartment and struggled with their growing family as he worked to achieve his goal,
He received his Juris Doctor degree from University of Michigan.
In his later years, he served as a Federal Magistrate, involving federal land and preliminary examinations. He had his own private practice in Vicksburg, which was taken over by his daughter, Melanie after his death.

In 1959, Richard Miles and his wife, Dione, loaded up their seven children -- ages 9 months to 16 years old -- and headed to India for a year. Mr. Miles, a Wayne State University history professor, had a teaching assignment at Madras University as a Fulbright professor.
"It was quite a thing at that time," said his daughter, Margaret Miles. "There was press coverage of us when we were leaving. I remember a newspaper photo of us all lined up."The experience in India -- including meeting Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru -- has stayed with the Miles children, his daughter said. And her father, upon returning to Wayne State, took an interest in making foreign students feel comfortable. The trip to India was a teaching highlight for Mr. Miles of Bloomfield Hills, who died July 1 at Henry Ford Hospital of a heart attack. He was 82. He was born in Amesbury, Mass., and attended Kalamazoo College. During his senior year, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served in Europe until the end of World War II.
He returned to Michigan and enrolled at the University of Michigan, first finishing a few classes to earn his
undergraduate degree at Kalamazoo and then a master's and a doctorate from U-M. Mr. Miles began teaching history at Wayne State in 1948, specializing in early American history. His daughter said two of his favorite subjects were Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.
He authored numerous articles and book reviews on early American history, served on the editorial board of
Wayne State University Press, was a member of the Organization of American Historians, the American
Historical Association, the Society for Historians of the Early Republic and the Friends of Benjamin Franklin.
He retired from Wayne State in 1987 but continued to give seminars on American history to foreign executives
working at U.S. companies.
In his spare time, Mr. Miles enjoyed camping and traveling -- journeying to such places as Egypt, Greece, Italy, France and England. He collected classical and jazz music. Benny Goodman, Harry James, Ramsey Lewis and Duke Ellington were some of his favorite artists, his daughter said. He also liked to take photographs, many of which he developed in his own darkroom. "We are coping right now with a huge number of family photos," his daughter said with a laugh. Besides his wife and daughter, Mr. Miles is survived by daughters Julie Miles, Linda Coppens, Karen Voigts and Rebecca Miles; sons Jon and Michael; nine grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. A private memorial service was held.

Dick Miles lived an interesting and satisfying life, full of family warmth, travel, music and intellectual pursuits.
His mother Delia Reich's family had emigrated from Germany before she was born, and lived for a while in a sod house in Nebraska. The family moved to Michigan, where Delia was born, and as a young woman Delia met and married Herbert A. Miles, a Congregationalist minister. According to family lore, the Miles branch of the family19 is rooted in early colonial America, mostly in Massachusetts and Maine. When Herbert and Delia Miles were living in Amesbury, Massachusetts, Richard Donald Miles was born on June 8, 1921.
When he was five years old, the family moved to western Michigan, first to Muskegon and then after a few years to Whitehall, a small town on Lake Michigan. The houses where he lived in both towns are still there, and during a recent visit, Dick could recall in detail the names and personalities of the neighbors. He was active in Boy Scouts and at age 12 was a patrol leader. He enjoyed his years in high school: newspaper clippings kept by his mother extol his athletic triumphs on the baseball diamond and basketball court. By practicing on uneven, homemade surfaces, he became a virtuoso table-tennis player. He played the clarinet and piano, and through the radio, developed a great interest in swing, jazz and classical music. He also had interesting summer jobs as a teenager, such as caddying in a golf course. He was president of his senior class and Valedictorian. Those were good years for him, and in recent years Dick was very pleased to attend occasional reunions of the Whitehall High School Class of 1939.
He won the top scholarship prize to Kalamazoo College in a regional competition. In the fall of 1939 he met the
love of his life, Dione Fayling, when they were both freshmen at Kalamazoo College. They met at a Halloween
party, and ever after celebrated the anniversary of their meeting, October 28th. He impressed her with an essay he wrote about a humorously failed sailing trip that he read aloud in a composition class. They used to get up at 5 am and play tennis before classes, and they went to all the college dances together. They became constant companions during college days, and were married in October of 1942. But the bombing of Pearl Harbor had interrupted everyone's lives, and like many men of his generation, Pearl Harbor instantly made him wish to enlist.
He joined the Army Air Force earlier in 1942, and managed to finish his course work by taking double course
loads before he was actually sent off to Europe. After basic training he was sent first to England as an Administrative NCO, with a special qualification in MM Rifle, and served initially with the Hq. 323 Bomb Group. In the course of the war he served in campaigns in Northern France generally, Normandy, Ardennes, the Rhineland, Central Europe and the Air Offensive Europe. He landed after D Day on "D Day + 17" as it was known then. He was discharged in October of 1945.
The G.I. Bill helped Dick return to school after the war. He entered the graduate program in the Department of
History at the University of Michigan, and earned a M.A. and Ph.D. Dick and Di lived with their three small
children (Julie, Linda and Karen) in a basement apartment in Ann Arbor. They had access to great live jazz and swing, and used to go out dancing in clubs in the area. Dick was quite interested in philosophy and took a minor in it for his degree. Initially he was interested in Latin American History as a specialty, but then became
fascinated with early America, and the impact of Benjamin Franklin in particular. He wrote his dissertation on the image of Benjamin Franklin (completed 1949). His mentor was Prof. Verner Crane.
Dick accepted a teaching position at Wayne State University in 1948, and that would be his academic home for the future. Wayne's History department was an exciting place to be then, as Dick recalls in the chapter he
contributed to Reminiscences of Wayne (ed. Henry V. Bohn and Paul J. Pentecost, Ann Arbor, 2000). With the returning veterans, academia generally was booming, but also the faculty already there–Raymond Miller, William Harbison, William Bossenbrook, Sidney Glazer, Al Kelly and Rolf Johannesen–set a high tone and made the department congenial and stimulating. Dick enjoyed the students and the experience of seeing them "wake up" to new realms of knowledge and become exhilarated by history and philosophy and just being in school.
At first the family lived at 887 Calvert in Detroit, but after their fourth child Margie was born, Dick and Di
looked around for a larger place, and bought a wonderful old Victorian house at 50 Tuxedo in Highland Park.
The house had a large yard on two sides (it was actually a triple lot) with gingko, cherry, chestnut and pine trees. There was plenty of space for flower and vegetable gardens, and swings and a playhouse in the backyard. In a few years three more children were born (Becky, Jon and Michael) so now the house held nine.
This was the ideal place for a growing family. There was space in the basement for a workshop and photo lab for Dick, and plenty of bedrooms on the second floor. One of the remarkable characteristics of Dick was that he could take on any sort of household project, be it woodworking, laying insulation, painting, fixing, plumbing, etc. and do it. This was a good thing since a house built in 1885 requires a lot of maintenance and repair. Eventually he converted part of the attic into more bedroom space and a study. The two living rooms were furnished in cool beige and Danish modern furniture (bookcases made by Dick, curtains by Di), all very chic and on the cutting edge of the 1950s, a style that is back in fashion now. They gave lots of parties and in the summer, big picnics in the backyard.
It was in the 1950s that the family began taking camping trips, quite a production for Dick and Di with so many
children. We enjoyed swimming in Duck Lake near Whitehall, and campfires in the dunes of Lake Michigan,
where Dick grew up, Brighton Lake nearby home and the Pinery in Canada. We also visited sites of historical
importance in the northeast, such as Fort Ticonderoga, Boston and Williamsburg. All this is well-documented by a large number of excellent photographs and slides taken by Dick, who was an avid photographer. He was
interested in the aesthetic and technical aspects of photography, and of course its historical value too.
For the year 1959-60, Dick won a Fulbright professorship to India, where he taught American History at Madras University. He flew to Bombay to start work early, and Di took the freighter Jaladruv with the seven children from New York through the Suez Canal to Pakistan and then to Bombay to join Dick. The family was based in Madras, at 31 Cathedral Road. An American couple, both dancers of Bharatanatyam, lived on the upper floor of this large, sprawling, colonial-style house, and we came to enjoy the sounds of their practicing and the jangle of their ankle bracelets: Indian rhythms were pounded into our lives. The house was wrapped around a central outdoor courtyard–a perfect and safe place for small children to play. The four eldest attended school in Madras.
We have many photos and some movies taken by Dick of religious ceremonies, construction sites, school
festivals, ordinary traffic and special events in India. Dick and Di traveled to Assam, and the whole family to
Bangalore and New Delhi, where we met Prime Minister Jawaharlar Nehru. While Dick gave lectures on
American history, Di took courses on Indian mythology and history.
When the year was up, the family traveled first to Germany, where they picked up a VW microbus (ever in the
"vanguard," this was some years before this vehicle became a hippiemobile) and camped through Germany,
Switzerland, France, Italy and Spain. In France and Germany, they visited some of the places where Dick had
fought in WWII. The time in India and Europe had a major impact on the children, especially the older ones, and helped instill a love of travel in everyone.
Back on the campus of WSU, Dick was immersed in teaching and was a co-founder of a new interdisciplinary
program in American Studies. He also took a special interest in making foreign students feel comfortable in the U.S., and offered lectures on American society and the history of American social values to foreign students in the College of Nursing. At Wayne as on other campuses, the period of the later 1960s was one of turbulence, strikes, controversy over the Vietnam War, assassinations, and in Detroit, racial riots. Some people might remember this as a happy time, but it probably was not for Dick.
The family by now had a well-established tradition of camping trips every summer and with the older ones now
married and leading lives of their own, Dick and Di continued to take the younger ones on fun trips to the Pinery, Wisconsin, and national parks in Maine and upper New York. In 1965 the family left the beloved house at 50 Tuxedo and moved to Bloomfield Hills, where they hoped for a better school system. The new house on Forest Lane did also have a great, huge yard with a "forest" in the front and a meadow in the back. There was room in the back for a good-sized softball diamond, a horseshoe pit and a huge garden. Dick converted part of a small stable into a study. Dick and Di transplanted cuttings of lilacs, pussy willows and forsythias from the yard of 50 Tuxedo, giving visual continuity from the older home.
Dick's skills as a Boy Scout became manifest again when he took sons Jon and Michael on outings with first Cub Scouts and Indian Guides, then Boy Scouts. He was one of the few fathers not to swamp a canoe during canoe trips, thanks to his excellent navigation in the water. For a while they had an extensive set of small-scale trains set up in the garage, complete with landscaping and model villages. We also learned to play table-tennis and pool and held family competitions.
By the late 1970s and 1980s with the children fairly well grown up, it became possible for Dick and Di to travel
to Europe–they were especially free after they retired, Di from the Walter Reuther Archives at Wayne and Dick
from the Wayne's History Department. They visited Greece, including Athens, Delphi and Dodona (the site of the oracle of Dione), and later Greece again (an extended visit to the island Crete). They went to Italy twice, first to Rome and Etruscan sites and then in another year to Sicily. Southern France and Carcassonne were also a favorite destination, and one year they rented a car and drove up to England as well. For Di's 75th birthday, they took a trip to Egypt that included a cruise up the Nile river, and even Philai, the sanctuary of Isis beyond the Aswan Dam.
They also enjoyed anniversary trips to jazz festivals at the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island. Dick photographed the musicians while they were playing, people such as Dave Brubeck, Pete Fountain and Ramsey Lewis. Dick's 21 love of swing, jazz and classical music was lifelong, and earlier he had photographed Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington in performances. Dick and Di were ardent attenders and supporters of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera in Detroit and especially the Stratford Festival in Stratford, Ontario.
Another pleasure was traveling to visit with grown children and grandchildren. Dick and Di had nine
grandchildren: Marty and Alina, Lynn and Cynthia, Jessica and Ben, Tabitha and Michael, and Lena. They now
have ten great-grandchildren: Eve and Nina; Xavier; Robin, Dione and Raphael; Elysabeth, Bronwyn and
The stacks of books by his bedside left when he died attest to the wide range of Dick's interests. Among them is the Mozart Companion, a Harvard dictionary of music, recent biographies of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Chopin, Haydn and Isaac Stern, a book on the early history of gun ownership in the U.S., a book on Cleopatra and one on India, Kenneth Clark's Civilization, Lance Armstrong's autobiography and Garrison Keillor's Pretty Good Joke Book. Some were gifts from his children for his most recent birthday and Father's Day. We loved him dearly and he is greatly missed.

'Randy' is the son of Lloyd Randolph Clinton and Elza (Gostola) Fayling II. He has two brothers and three sisters in the Augusta, Michigan and Kalamazoo, Michigan area. After growing up in the Augusta, Michigan area, Randy joined the Kalamazoo Police Department in 1964. Two years later, he enlisted with Michigan State Police, December 11, 1966, completing their recruit school before moving his young family to Houghton Lake, Michigan. His second assignment with the State Police was at the Romeo Post, which lasted from 1969 through 1972. Randy was promoted to Sergeant at the Flint State Police post in March, 1972, and soon after, dedicated himself to establishing the first central dispatch center in Michigan. In 1979, Lloyd took a promotion to run Lansing's Dispatch Center at Headquarters, but one year later, returned to Genesee County's Central Dispatch. He developed the first 40 hour Telecommunicator Training Course in Michigan. He became a National APCO certified instructor at Delta College and served on the Governor's task force for the development of 24 Telecommunications. Soon after his promotion to Lieutenant, Randy became known as Lloyd to everyone but his family.
Lloyd serves on Michigan's Emergency Telephone Service Committee (ETSC), as a Senate appointment, he
chairs the Emerging Technology Committee and Legislation Action Subcommittee and was past Vice President of the Michigan 911 Directors Association. He was chairman of the State Training Conference for the Association of Public Safety Communications, Michigan Chapter (APCO) and has also served as President of Michigan's Association of Public-Safety Communications Association. Michigan's APCO has recognized Lloyd in past years as Telecommunicator of the Year, Director of the Year and then awarded him with a Life Membership achievement, to recognize his dedication and achievements done on behalf of 9-1-1.
His list of recognitions included a myriad of State, National and International awards presented to a man who
obviously loves his job.
On October 21, 1995, Lloyd retired as a State Police Lieutenant - Director of 9-1-1 and returned the next Monday as a civilian, still the Director of 9-1-1, but run insteam as an employee of Genesee County 9-1-1 Consortium. In Genesee County, he has been a member of the Medical Control Board, Police Chiefs Association, and the Fire Chiefs Association. Over the years, Lloyd's dedication has proven itself over and over again at work. His family also knows that he is even MORE dedicated to them. He is an example hard to follow, but his example has left an indelible print in all our hearts.
Graduated from Midland High School in 1973, and received an Associates in Accounting from Baker Junior
College in 1986. Later, after returning to her education, she received two Bachelor degrees from Southern
California University, October 1996 - one in Business Administration Management and the other in Applied
Leslie began her career working for her father at his Optometric business, learning to do many jobs within his
practice, including adjusting glasses, changing the prescription of contact lenses and a myriad of office duties,
including bookkeeping skills. After moving to Texas, she began working for Arby's Roast Beef Restaurants and
continued working for them when she and her first husband, David Mayo, moved on to Myrtle Beach, Carolina.
The two of them used their skills of training and management to train new employees and management two of the restaurants on Kings Hwy in Myrtle Beach. Eventually, they both retired and returned to Michigan. Leslie
managed a Sunshine Food Store for a while before going to work for Mead Containers in Flint.
Unfortunately, the economy was such that Mead closed down just short of Leslie being able to graduate on their college program. But it was good in that she was able to get her Civil Service exam passed and get hired just before the hiring freeze in 1980. Leslie was hired for a seasonal bookkeeping position at Michigan School for the Deaf, December 1980. Every Summer, she was laid off without benefit of unemployment but with benefit of her medical insurance. Five years later, an opening and interview came up, followed by a job offer. In April
1985, Leslie transferred to the Michigan State Police as a emergency dispatcher (before 9-1-1 was active).
Leslie's husband died while she was working as an emergency dispatcher (March 21, 1986). After the death of
her first husband, she found the work too stressful and transferred again to the State Police Headquarters,
Criminal Investigation Division, Technical Services Section, working as their office manager. There she
advanced her computer skills, taking many classes available through the State of Michigan.
Eventually, she made one last transfer to the Department of Social Services in Flint, where she was supervisor
over their bookkeeping staff. The Social Services division had a free education provision if homework wasn't
done at work and if the employees attained a 3.0 point or better average. Though employees still had to incur
some cost, most was paid by the State. Leslie took advantage of this benefit and finally finished her education.
She had already finished her Associates degree in Accounting at Baker College back in 1985, receiving her
diploma in 1986. It took from 1995 to 1996 to finish her classes and get two more degrees. Though internet
classes are very popular now, Southern California University was a front-runner of internet studies.
Leslie graduated AND retired in 1996 and turned her interest to writing, genealogy, gardening, and family.
Though retired from the State of Michigan, she continued to be guardian and conservator for her Grand Uncle and Aunt until 2000 and 2002. Leslie also continued to do bookkeeping for her father until he sold his business in 2004. Leslie's real retirement didn't commence until after the estate was settled for her Grand Uncle and Aunt and until her brother, Dave Cummings took over all the bookkeeping dealings for their father.
Leslie's main goal is to write her family's history, complete with photos.

Notes for Murray Chester Warner:
Murray was a man of all trades: Logger, Cat Skinner, Truck, bus and taxi driver - fisherman, mechanic, fireman, hunting guide - husband, grampa, and poppa. He was very proud of his family and their accomplishments. He once bragged that his eight kids were his best assets! He had a stubborn streak, but had a heart of gold, and generosity for friends and family that made up for the difference. There wasn't anyone who went hungry or homeless when he was around. He adopted and raised more than his own eight children over the years. One of his greatest loves was gardening. He loved to watch everything grow and then harvest it. He was also one of the best butchers we knew. He was always there to help anyone butcher meat and wrap for them. He often smoked people's fish for them and told moose and fish stories for entertainment to make the wrapping less tedious. He liked to drive his 2-wheel drive car like a 4-wheeler.
He could have made great Ford commercials! He liked to play pool and cards, chat with anyone who would listen and drank too much, thereby talking too much at times, as well. But whether he was drinking or sober, if you really listened to him, some of his stories he told you, made a lot of sense. He was a very intelligent person. He loved to to sit and watch wildlife programs, go for snoozes and shared all the good and bad times with his family and friends. He never lost his cool under pressure and if anyone needed help, he'd be the first one to lend a hand. The best description of Murray is all in his favorite song called, "Wasn't that a Party?" He was also adopted into the Haida Tribe at Skidigate, Q.C.I., his Haida name was "GUNGINAAY" which pronounced (Goon-gi-nung) known as "always crying."
