Note
"John Groves came to Perry County about 1811 with his father, who entered a large tract of land since known as Groves' Bottom. The former ... in 1825, settled on a tract of 175 acres which he inherited from his father. Upon this in 1845 he erected a large brick dwelling house, at that time the finest in the township. Here he continued to reside until his death." Source: "History of Warrick,Spencer,Perry Counties Indiana, from the earliest time to the present." Chicago, Goodspeed, bros & Co. 1885 837p. 25cm.
