He is a son ofWilliams Corn, who was one of the earliest settlers of the county. Thefather was born in Henry County, Kentucky Feb 16, 1800 and he in turnwas a son of George Corn, who was a native of Germany, and had come tothis country when a young man, in season to take part in theRevolution, and his adopted country found in him a good soldier. Heserved faithfully throughout the war, and then spent a number of yearsfighting the Indians on the frontier, being actively engaged in 9campaigns. he finally retired to private life, locating in the wildsof Henry County, Kentucky where he met and married Jane WILLIAMS.

They reared a family of 7 children: John; Sam; Singleton;Miles; Williams; Margaret and Mary Ann. Williams Corn was married inhis native county in 1821 to Sarah, daughter of Joseph Allen.

Mr. Corn labored with untiring zeal to clearhis land and to get it into a good state of cultivation and has 124acres of land, all in a fine condition and supplied with all thenecessary improvements. In the summer of 1869 he replaced his humblecabin home by a neat frame residence, and has other substantialbuildings. Mr. and Mrs. Corn have had 10 children of whom 8 are stillliving.
