1780 - 1849 and 1781 - 1871Jeremiah and his wife Ann, wealthy Quakers from Philadelphia, arrive in Springfield in 1830 to claim extensive acreage inherited from his late father's estate. That same year, he purchases from the estate the village of Lagonda consisting of several dwellings, saw mills, a woolen mill, and a gristmill with additional plans to build a large mill with a dam over the stream in order to increase water power for more mills. He purchases the "Western Pioneer", the local newspaper in 1831. Warder desires to improve the quality in Springfield with the founding of a literary club, the Springfield Lyceum, from which our first library grew. He is also instrumental in the incorporation of Springfield High School into the city of Springfield in 1833. Warder helps to stimulate the town's economic and industrial prosperity. Also, he is involved with the politics of bringing the National Road through Springfield.
