Many thanks to Stan Warmath, a descendent of this line, for the information on this page, sent in an email in 2008. The information that he sent along (spouses, children's names) was not part of any other Warmath genealogy I had seen, and so is much appreciated. Where possible, I have added the paper trail backing up his information (census, WWI draft registration, etc).

1887 Goodspeed Bibliographies, Gibson TN (regarding William James's brother John): "John W. Warmath is one of eight surviving members of a family of ten children born to Henry and Elizabeth (Fly) Warmath, who were born in North Carolina in 1799 and 1803 respectively. They came to Gibson County in 1832 and after 17 years' residence in that county, crossed the line into Madison County, where they afterward made their home. The father was a Whig and farmer and died in 1849. The mother is yet living and is 82-years-old. John W. was born February 20, 1834, and although his early education was limited, he afterward extended his abilities to algebra, botany, chemistry and several other of the higher branches. In 1861 he joined Capt. Branche's company Forty-seventh Tennessee Infantry, Confederate States Army, and was a faithful soldier for three years. After his return home he resumed farming and is now the owner of 568 acres of fertile land. He resided in Madison County until 1880, but has since made his home in Gibson County. In 1865 he married Martha A. Jones, born in 1845, and their union has resulted in the birth of seven boys. Mr. Warmath is a Democrat and he, wife and three children are members of the Missionary Baptist Church.
