Jacob and Rachel Fouts Yost arrived in Tippecanoe County in 1839. Their son David lived in Perry Township, Tippecanoe County, and Ross Township, Clinton County. Aaron and Rena lived on the Warwick homestead in Perry Township, Tippecanoe County. Aaron died of pneumonia he contracted after helping with household chores while Rena was sick. He is supposed to have gone out, wet and sweaty from doing the family laundry, to do the outside chores in cold weather, contracted pneumonia, and died.
