HUCKLEBERRY
John Huckleberry, was said to have been the son of George and Rosanna (Wise), Huckleberry. According to the biographical sketches, George Huckleberry, Sr. was a native of Wurtemburg, Germany who had come to America, settling in Pennsylvania. In about 1784, he moved to Jefferson County, Kentucky near Abbott's station. There, one of his sons was captured by the Indians, and when they discovered they were being pursued, they killed the boy near Twelve-mile Island, which was the cause of the creek on the Kentucky side being called Huckleberry.

George moved to Clark County, Indiana in 1796 and settled near Charlestown Landing, where he purchased a large tract of land. He had seven sons and two daughters, those being: John who married Eliza (Murdock); Martin who was in Captain Wells' company at St. Clair's defeat; George Jr., who was one of the volunteers that went to the relief of Fort Harrison when Major Zachary Taylor, afterwards President Taylor, was besieged by the Indians; David; Abraham; Susannah; Henry, who was in the battle of Tippecanoe; Jacob; and Elizabeth Huckleberry.

JOHN HUCKLEBERRY, the son of George as mentioned, was born in Pennsylvania in 1769. He married Elizabeth "Eliza" Murdock on 21 Sep 1799 in Jefferson Co., Kentucky, and died on 27 Sep 1823 in Clark Co., Indiana. He was laid to rest at Baird Cemetery, and a humble stone marks his place of rest.

Note: Uncertain if Murdock is Eliza's maiden name or married name.
