||1920 census Henry Warren, Mathew Warren, Roscoe James|
Note that Mathew Warren evidently was single all his life and in 1920 is living in the Warren house at Pitman Creek with his older Brother and his wife Henry and Samantha Warren.

||Henry Warren death certificate|
||1930 census: Henry & Samantha Warren, son Andrew Moses Warren (widower) and daughter Geneva|
Shows Moses Warren born about 1883. (WWI registration shows dob 12/24/1883) So he was same age as Sam Colyer up the road in 1900 who lived on Pitman Rd at Cherry Grove school. Where they playmates in school era ? Max Lay reports that Sam told him he went to Warren house (formerly Sam's father's house before Warrens purchased) in the summer.
||1884 deed from Andrew Warren to Henry Warren 75 acres|
Trace of John Colyer home place deed that was sold to Andrew Warren....this is Andrew Warren transferring part to son Henry. Another 1884 deed to son William H Warren, transfers another 56 acres. Have not identified yet where other acres went to total the 200 sold by John Colyer to Andrew Warren. One son of Andrew Warren , Mathew, I have not found any land to him yet. Mathew who was first Ruth Ky postmaster, did purchase some acres across street from heirs of Alexander Colyer by court ordered auction. Not that road is referred to Rockcastle Springs Rd. Based on obituary of Charles Grenade Colyer in Somerset Republican paper 1910, it was later referred to as Sublimity Springs Rd. Earliest records refer to it as Salt Works Rd. After 1910 it was known as Ruth Rd and lately as hwy 192.

- Interview of Mr. Lyman Alexander in June 2016, a life-long resident of Ruth Ky and 87 years of age, He recalled "Uncle Henry and Aunt Samantha Warren". In that era, Mr. Alexander stated that folks referred to their elder neighbors and acquantances as "Uncle and Aunt", regardless of whether they were related.
Interview of Mrs. Vertie May Hughes, Age 92, another neighbor living on their family home place on Strawberry Rd on July 10, 2016, she also recalled "Uncle Henry and Aunt Samantha".
- Log house at Ruth KY: Evidently Henry Warren occupied the old home beginning by at least 1925 and perhaps earlier, based on found photo of family at house in 1925. Local interviews recall them living there until their death. Harold Colyer recalls seeing Moses Warren living there in 1940s. Based on records, since Henry Warren died in 1944, son Moses likely lived there with his widow mother until her death in 1955. Interview of Ms. Linda Dugger in 2016, her great aunt Ina Colyer, rented the house from Joe Warren starting in about 1955. Linda stated that she began spending her summers in the house about 1955. She said that Ina's son Bobby Scroufe lived in the house with Ina. Linda said her Aunt Ina stayted there until early 1970's when Geneva Warren decided to move back into the house. This must have been when Geneva married Attorney Dan Canning. Geneva and Dan Canning remodeled the house in the early 1970's by adding porch, fireplace and rec room, kitchen and moved in until Geneva death in 1995.
