Edward Allen Warren (May 2, 1818 – July 2, 1875) was a U.S. Representative from Arkansas.

Early life and education

Edward Allen Warren was born in Greene County, Alabama, on May 2, 1818, to Robert H. Warren and Lydia A. Minter Warren. He received his early education there, and then studied law on his own. He married in October 1838, and he and his wife, Mary Elizabeth Warren, went on to have two children.[1] In 1843, he was admitted to the bar and he began his practice in Clinton, Mississippi.

Legal and political career

In 1845, he was elected to the Mississippi House of Representatives, serving until 1846. In 1847, Warren moved to Camden, Arkansas and opened his law practice there. In 1848, he entered Arkansas politics as a Democrat and was elected to the Arkansas House of Representatives. He served as the House Speaker in 1849. Between 1850 and 1851, Warren served as a judge on the Circuit Court of the Sixth District of Arkansas. Warren was elected as a Democrat to the Thirty-third Congress (March 4, 1853 – March 3, 1855). Warren was elected to the Thirty-fifth Congress (March 4, 1857 – March 3, 1859), representing Arkansas's 2nd congressional district.

Later life and death

After his years of government service, Warren devoted the rest of life to his family and to his law practice. On July 2, 1875, Warren died at the residence of his son; E.A. Warren, jr., in Prescott, Nevada County, Arkansas,[2] and was interred in Moscow Church.

Legacy

In 1876, Warren's son, E.A. Warren Jr., opened 'The Prescott Dispatch' in Prescott,[3] and became Prescott's Mayor in 1881.[4]
