Jacob Warrick (1773–1811) was an Indiana militia leader.
One of the distinguished and early settlers and Indian fighters was Capt.
Jacob Warrick. He raised a company of rangers during the Indian troubles
of 1811 and, at the request of Governor Harrison, joined the main army at
Vincennes and marched against the Indians, and while gallantly leading a
charge at the battle of Tippecanoe was killed, being buried on the field.
General Harrison, in his official report of that battle, took occasion to commend
in the highest terms the bravery of Captain Warrick. He was a Kentuckian
by birth, and removed here with his family in 1807, settling in the
northwest quarter of section 11, township 3, range 12, Gibson county about two miles west
of Owensville. For that period he was regarded as a man of considerable
wealth. He brought with him several slaves, and was probably the first to
introduce well-bred horses in this section of Indiana.
