Youngblood, John W.
October 20, 1883 Boonville Enquirer

John W. Youngblood was born Dec. 1st, 1796 in Abbyville county, South Carolina. In 1813 he and his father, his mother being dead, started for Indiana. On the journey the father died, and the orphaned boy came on alone and settled in what is now Warrick county. Two years after coming in Indiana, on Sept 21, 1815, he married Anna Musgrave. They lived together until 1868, when death departed them. Eleven children were the fruit of the union, all of whom, with the exception of a daughter who died in infancy, lived to have families of their own. Six children still survive to mourn a father's loss. When almost nineteen years of age, Father Youngblood attended the first camp meeting ever held in Warrick county. There he gave his heart to God and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church. In the Church of his choice he filled many official positions, and lived them well. He was steward, class leader, exhorter and, in 1829, was licensed as a local preacher, which position he held unto the day of his death. As a preacher he was widely known, having preached throughout Southern Indiana, and also in Kentucky. He was a faithful, true and fearing preacher of righteousness, and many were converted under his ministry. Many who remain and many who have gone to the better land, claimed J.W. Youngblood as their spiritual father. Uncle Johnny, as he was called, was one of the ancient landmarks of Southern Indiana. Wherever he was known, he was respected and praised as an honest man who went about doing good. He loved to tell the story of the cross and of the love of God to man. He labored and toiled for his Master's cause and glory, preaching, praying and exhorting up to the hour of his death, which occurred on October 5th, 1863. He has gone to the reward promised those who live for God. The fight fought, the battle won, he rests in peace. In compliance with a request made to him by the deceased, the Rev. J.W. Julian will preach the funeral sermon at Pleasant Chapel, five miles south of Boonville, on October 28th.
