John Wesley Warrington was a United States federal judge. John Wesley Warrington was, by family records, born on July 22, 1846, which made him but 16 years old when he enlisted in the 110th O.V.I. Born in Clark County, Ohio, Warrington joined the United States Army during the American Civil War, serving in the 110th Ohio Infantry from 1862 to 1865. He thereafter attended the University of Cincinnati College of Law, receiving an LL.B. in 1869. He worked for the city of Cincinnati, Ohio, as an assistant city solicitor from 1869 to 1873, and then as city solicitor until 1875. He was a Republican Presidential elector for Hayes/Wheeler in 1876. He was in private practice in Cincinnati from 1876 to 1909, during which time he was a professor of equity jurisprudence and trusts at the Cincinnati Law School, from 1901 to 1904. He was president of the Ohio State Bar Association in 1902. On March 16, 1909, President William Howard Taft nominated Warrington to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit vacated by John Kelvey Richards.
