Edward Warren was one of the early settlers in Silver Creek Township having been listed in the 1816 enumeration. He had been a soldier of the American Revolution serving as a private in the First Regiment of foot from the state of Pennsylvania. In 1820, at the age of 71, he petitioned the government for a pension due to the fact that he had been honorably discharged because his left hand was crippled due to the fact that he received a wound from a ball during battle. He served a total of 16 months in the Army before being discharged on account of his injury.
