Souvenir Edition, The Williamstown Courier, Williamstown, Ky, May 30,
1901, reprinted September 19, 1981 by the Grant County KY Historical

JOHN J. BLACKBURN was born in Grant County, near the home where he now
resides, on the 7th day of September, 1865. He is a son of J. J. and
Louisa Blackburn, and is the second son in a family of two sons and
seven daughters. Both sons and seven of the girls are living. They
are: Rankin, John J., Rachel, Nancy Jane, Mary, Lucretia, Martha C.,
Elizabeth and Atha F. His father was born in Harrison County on the
8th day of February, 1823, and lived until recently. His mother was
born in Grant County on the 16th day of October, 1823. John J.
Blackburn is a farmer, and a good one at that. He owns 500 acres of
fine blue grass land in the highest state of cultivation. He has
seventy head of find cattle and 215 head of good sheep, and other stock
in proportion. He is up to date in his methods, and if he lives and
the past is an index to the future, he will one of these days be one of
the richest men in the county.
