Ella Warden Gawne, 1850-1887

Ella Warden was born on February 12, 1850 to H.P. and Elizabeth Warden. In 1860 census, Ella was age 8, and resided with her parents and siblings in Mount Vernon, Knox County, Ohio. The family later moved to Sandusky, Erie County, Ohio. On June 28, 1877, Miss Ella Warden married Dr. Augustus J. Gawne in Erie County, Ohio.
