Farmer in Carroll Co., Indiana
John married Lydia BRACKNEY in 1846. With Lydia, he had five children: Calvin, Amanda, Marvin, Diantha, and Hulda. By the time Lydia died in 1858, the first four children were dead, and only Hulda remained. Hulda was just over four years old when John married again.
John married Rachel SMITH on January 25, 1859. Just over nine months after he married Rachel, two things happened on the same day: John's last surviving child from his first married died, and John's second wife gave birth to their son. That day was November 4, 1859.
With Rachel, John had four children: Franklin, Dora, Charley, and Jesse.
John was a farmer in Clay Township, Carroll County, Indiana. Sometime during the California Gold Rush (which was 1848–1855), John and a group of men from Carroll County joined the rush to California in search of gold.
