Warrant, Lena A. Smith Chapman (arrived in Colorado in 1860)

Mrs. Lena A. Warrant was born in Woodbury County, Iowa, October 8, 1854, and came with her parents to Colorado in 1860.

The family settled on Cherry Creek, 9 miles above Denver, and 2 years afterward moved to Pueblo where Mrs. Warrant received her education in the public schools.

Lena first married Able Chapman on June 9, 1872 in Pueblo.

After her marriage on August 1, 1876 in Huerfano County to John J. Warrant they resided in Colfax County, New Mexico,* for 7 years, where he was engaged in stock raising.

Disposing of their property, they went to Minnesota in 1883 but returned to Colorado the same year.

Mr. Warrant died 4 years later, and since that time she has carried on the farm, which they had purchased and, with the help of a small pension, has supported herself and six children.

*New Mexico was admitted to the Union in 1912.
