John Kimberlin was a second lieutenant with the Bedford Co, PA, militia in the Revolutionary War. He is honored as the first white settler of Scott County, Indiana, claiming forest land he had purchased for $1500 in April, 1805. His blockhouse became a place of refuge during the War of 1812 after the Pigeon Roost Massacre. His story has been researched and described in detail.
