W. Garth Warner

March 26, 1926. ~ August 19, 2023
W. Garth Warner entered into eternal rest on Saturday, August 19th, 2023, at his home on Sholtz Road, Oneida. He was born the second of five boys to Elmina and Stanley Warner on the family farm on Higginsville Road, Durhamville, New York. His birthday is March 26, 1926. That dairy farm had been in the family for several generations, and as he grew up working on the farm his parents were struggling to make ends meet because of the great depression. As was often the case, his grandparents also lived with the family. Of course, there was no electricity or telephones, but the strong ties of his church family and neighbors helped everyone to keep food on the table and cloths on their backs. When World War II was declared Garth was drafted into the army. Garth married Mayola Williams, a childhood sweetheart from in 1948. In the early days of their marriage, he worked washing windows and building houses and dreamed of becoming a shop teacher in public school.

Hawaii becomes 50th state

“The modern United States receives its crowning star when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs a proclamation admitting (Native spelling: Hawai‘i) into the Union as the 50th state. The president also issued an order for an American flag featuring 50 stars arranged in staggered rows: five six-star rows and four five-star rows. The new flag became official July 4, 1960. The first known settlers of the Hawaiian Islands were Polynesian voyagers who arrived sometime in the eighth century. In the early 18th century, American traders came to Hawaii to exploit the islands’ sandalwood, which was much valued in China at the time. In the 1830s, the sugar industry was introduced to Hawaii and by the mid 19th century had become well established. American missionaries and planters occupied the islands and brought about massive changes in Hawaiian political, cultural, economic and religious life. In 1840, a constitutional monarchy was established, stripping the Hawaiian monarch of much of his authority.”
