John A. WORMELSDUFF, Caldwell County, is the second son of Henry and Pernecy (Quisenberry) Wormelsduff, and was born in Caldwell County, December 15, 1847. His paternal ancestors came from North Carolina and were of German descent. His grandfather, Daniel Wormelsduff, came to Kentucky many years ago and settled in Crittenden County; he died in Caldwell County while on a visit in 1864. Subject's maternal grandfather was Benjamin Quisenberry. He was a native of Virginia, but came to Caldwell County when there were but few settlements within its present limits, and located near the Harmony Church. Henry Wormelsduff came to Kentucky in 1842 and settled near where our subject now lives, five miles southeast of Princton, where he died in October, 1866, aged fifty-three. Mrs. Wormelsduff is still living on the old home place. Our subject is the second of a family of nine children, named as follows: Richard (deceased), J. A., Henry William, Sallie (wife of Thomas Lafoon), of Hopkins County, Edward (deceased), Lucy, Floyd (deceased), Oda, and two who died in infancy. Our subject commenced business as a farmer on the old home place, which he now owns and on which he lives with his mother, never having married. With the exception of three years spent in a western tour through Texas, Kansas, the Indian Territory and various other States and Territories, he has been a resident of Caldwell County all his life.
