Caldwell Co.

J. 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
Caounty 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.
He is an ardent supporter of Democratic principles, but votes for the
man rather than the party.
