Martin Warren assisted in establishing American Independence as a Private in Captain John Dougherty’s Company, General George Rogers Clark’s Regiment of the Virginia Continental Line.  Private Warren fought with General George Washington at the Battle of Valley Forge.  He received an 80 acre land grant for his service, which he partially sold to create the Warrens Corner settlement, re-named Warrensburg, Missouri in 1836.  His service is documented in Margery Harding’s publication George Rogers Clark and His Men: Military Records and as DAR patriot A121627.
 
Martin was born August 1763 in Augusta, Virginia and died on 19 Aug 1852 in Warrensburg, Missouri.  He was originally buried at the Old Warrensburg Cemetery on West Gay Street, which still has his original tombstone.  However, his body we moved to the Sunset Hill Cemetery in 1915 with a new military tombstone, located at 610 Colburn Street, Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri.
 
 
The town and the SAR Chapter in Warrensburg were named after him.  For additional information, please see link at:  Martin Warren
