This is just general information for all Yount/Yunt researchers.In 1977 a Mrs. Isabelle Yount sent me this information. We could never connect the dots.

She said the above James's application for a invalid's pension because of Civil War service states he was born in Hendricks, Ind. She found a John Yunt/Yount in Vermillion Co., Ind. 1850. Some think James's grandfather was John Allen Yunt. That his father had 2 full brothers and at least one full sister with the names Of Mary Catherine, Amos Wesley, and George Washington Yount. There is a record of "A" John Yount m. Hannah Chamness both citizens of Hendricks Co, Ind. 2-14-1832. The Chamness family lived in Boone Co. Ind.but that this YUNT/YOUNT family is not on the Boone Co. Census, that Isabelle could find........... Son of above Civ. War soldier, James William Yunt stated that his father freighted before and after the Civil War with the Grandfather, John Allen Yunt, between Council Bluffs Iowa and St. Joseph, Mo. with winters on "fathers farm".
I hope this will help someone with your research. We were interested because I had a George W. and a Amos Wesley Yount. Our Amos Wesley was born in Louisiana. We never connected the dots. Isabelle had tons of Yount research. I hope before her death that she put it in a book.
She believed the early Younts come from Switzerland abt. 1752. She said two Rev. War soldiers who went in to Ky with Daniel and Squire BooneI remember she mentioned Daniel Boone but over the years that page has been lost or misfiled.
Hope this will help someone researching the Younts. As most of us know the informtion is hard to come by on this family. They stuck with the same names. We still have the same names.
