John Barngrover spent his early boyhood days on the old home farm (Highland Co, OH), and at the age of sixteen started out to make his own way in the world, served a four-year apprenticeship to the tanner's trade. He then entered the employ of Jesse R. Grant, father of Ulysses S. Grant, and was working for that gentleman when the future general and president returned from West Point. Mr. Barngrover left for(from?) Ohio in 1843 and went to Indiana in time to vote for James K. Polk the following year. He remained in the Hoosier State until 1846, when he enlisted in the service for the Mexican War as a member of Company C, First Indiana Infantry, under Colonol James P. Drake. He remained at the front for a year, and received a pension in recognition of his service. Married in 1848 and had 10 children, of whom a daughter died at the age of two years, and one son in his twentieth year. Eight are now (1896) living.
