His paternal grandfather was a soldier of the Revolutionary war. John W. Youngblood was a minister of the Methodist Episcopal faith, and one of the pioneers of Warrick County. He came to Indiana Territory about the year 1812, and settled in Anderson Township , this county, where he was married September 21, 1815 . He was one of the best men ever in the county. The subject of this sketch was raised a farmer, and when twenty years old married Rachel E. Hinman. He was constantly engaged in farming and stock-raising from that time until 1882, when he moved to Boonville, where he now resides, retired from active business pursuits.
