"Isaac Grenawalt was born in Hardin County, Ky., December 20, 1817, and is a
son of John and Rachel (Logston) Grenawalt, descendants of Germany. Upon
their marriage they moved to a farm in Hardin County, Ky. Isaac, the sixth
child of a family of eleven boys and three girls, worked on a farm until he
was twenty, then in the fall of 1837 took a flat boat for New Orleans, La.,
where he went to work at the carpenter's trade, until the fall of 1839. He
then visited Texas, volunteered to fight Indians, and during the conflict
received a wound. He was in Texas 18 months, then returned to New Orleans
where he finished his apprenticeship in the summer of 1844. Soon after he
went to Nashville, TN, and while there worked at this trade. In the fall of
1845 he retraced his steps to the parental home in Hardin County, Ky. He was
absent 8 yrs and six months, still working at his trade. On July 8, 1847,
Mr. Grenawalt wedded Miss Mary Bunt, after which they commenced housekeeping
at Louisville, KY. He followed his trade until October 26, 1849, when he took
a boat for Keokuk, Iowa, moving thence to Jefferson County, Iowa. He then
worked at carpentering, and while there entered eighty acres of land. In the
spring of 1855 he sold out, and in the fall of 1855 immigrated to Harrison
County, Mo., where he arrived October 17, 1855, and soon entered 160 acres of
land where he now lives. During the war he belonged to the Home Guards. Mr.
and Mrs. Grenawalt have had six sons and three daughters, of whom three sons
and one daughter are now deceased. Mr. Grenawalt is a Democrat and a member
of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Mrs. Grenawalt belongs to the United
Brethren Church. He is a well-to-do man, and the owner of 240 acres of good
land." This is retyped from copies of pages of an early Harrison Co. MO
History sent to me by an older cousin of mine — Pat Young, Madison, WI
(daughter of Nina Traxler Crouch).
