An in-depth article by Grange B. McKinney on actor J.B. Warner in "Classic Images" magazine points out that H.B. (Henry) was not the older brother of J.B., a handsome western film actor who died of tuberculosis at age 29. In fact, they were not related. J.B.'s real name was James B. Tobias and he adopted the surname of Warner after H.B's grandparents took him in and raised him.
Grandfather of actor Ed Garner.
Was survived by a son and daughter by actress Rita Stanwood.
