(b. ca. 1800)

Lawrence County, Alabama 

The third sheriff of Lawrence County resided first in Madison and was sheriff of that county. His first wife was Miss Hart and they settled near Leighton. Since he was well-known by a number of Lawrence county citizens who were from Madison county, he was elected sheriff of Lawrence county. “He was a man of energy and method. All his official business was closed up promptly. His deputies were Andrew Kaiser and Levi F. Warren.”

Hugh and Miss Hart had four sons:

  1. William H. Warren, who was a major in the Confederacy and lived in Colbert county. William first married Miss Cassidy from Florence, Alabama and second, a daughter of John Dial near La Grange. William was a fearless officer but was not always temperate.
  2. The second son of Hugh and Miss Hart was Robert Warren, who married a daughter of Dr. Clark, and lived in Colbert county.
  3. Thomas Warren was the third son and he married a Miss Webb of Madison county and they lived near Moulton.
  4. Hugh Warren’s youngest son was also named Hugh Warren. He married the daughter of John L. Murray and moved to Texas before 1880.


Hugh M. Warren married his second wife, Nancy Emily Smith, the daughter of John (Pond) Smith, who was well respected and the head of a pious Baptist family. Hugh and Nancy Emily had two daughters,

  1. Martha Warren married Robert King, the son of Oswald King in 1856
  2. Mary Warren married Burchett C. King, the brother of Robert in 1858.

They both had many children.

Hugh M. Warren’s deputy, Andrew Kaiser, studied medicine, found some mineral springs ( called Kaiser’s Springs) and settled there. His other deputy, Levi F. Warren, lived near Moulton and amassed a very large fortune and died before 1880.
