John Blystone son of George and Julia, born 1809 in Pleasant Unity, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, married in 1825 Ann Fultz, born 1809, Pleasant Unity, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. He died 3 April 1883, and Ann died 1884, both in Whitesburg, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania. Both are buried in the Presbyterian Church Cemetery.

Wll of John Blystone:
I john Blystone of Plumcreek Twp., Armstrong County, Pennsylvania being of sound mind memory and understanding do make this my last will and testament thereby revoking and making void all former wills by at anytime hereaftermade. And first I direct that my body be decently buried after my decease. As to such state as is hath pleased God to intural me with. I disperse of the same as is the following Org. Item 1st My will and desire is that my funeral expense and just debts be paid after my decease as soon as convenient. Item 2nd I give and bequeath to my beloved wife Anne all my household and kitchen furniture and dwelling house and farm on which I now reside and in short all my real and personal property goods and chattel rights and credits whatsoever, and my beloved wife Anne is to take care of me during my natural lifetime. Item 3rd my will and desire is that after the decease of my beloved Anne all the property real and personal bequested to her shall be dispersed of by my executor hereafter named and equally divided among my 15 (a slash through the 15) 12 children, namely Isaac, Henry, John, Wiliams heirs, Sarah Anne, Maria, Lydia, Finley, Levi, Presley, Jesse, and my son George is only to have one dollar out of my estate. Last I appoint my esteemed friend D. Helfferich, the executor of this my last will and testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the 15th day of February A.D. 1882. John O. Blystone (His X mark).
Signed sealed, published and declared by the above named John Blystone as and far his last will and testament in the presence of us who have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses thereto in the presence of the said testator and of each other. Isaac Dunmire William Dunmire

This information is from the greatest book on Blystone History. It was written by Jeffery Blystone. If you want accurate information on your family he is on the website and sells his book. I am putting this will on the site because of all the discrepancies I have seen about John Blystone.
