Mr. Isaac Warren, Jr.

Isaac Warren, Jr. is something of a mystery. The man most frequently listed as “Isaac Warren, Jr.” was born in 1745 in Woburn and was an almanac maker. However there is no clear connection either to Deacon Isaac Warren, or to other founders. Deacon Isaac Warren had a son named Isaac born in Charlestown on Aug. 9, 1787. While in most genealogies he is listed as Isaac Warren 3rd, his baptismal record lists him as Jr., making him the favored candidate for our founders list. It appears that Deacon Isaac Warren’s son was cut down in his prime, as his death date is recorded as Oct. 13, 1815, making him just barely 28 years old.
