John IX of Salm-Kyrburg-Mörchingen (1575–1623) was Wild- and Rhinegrave of Kyrburg and Count of Salm. He was the son of Otto I (1538–1607) and Ottilie of Nassau-Weilburg (1546-c. 1610). Many of his relatives served as soldiers in Swedish service, including his brother John Casimir of Salm-Kyrburg (1577–1651). Because of this, the family was often on the run during the Thirty Years' War.
