John Courtland Searle was born in Butler, Wayne, New York. His parents were Breed Searle and Rebecca Ann Saxton. He married Jerusha Morrison Hill 20 Mar 1850 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah. They were the parents of twelve children.

(From PETEETNEET TOWN, A History of Payson, Utah, by Madoline Cloward Dixon)
"The first settlers of the new colony at Peteetneet were sixteen in number. They included James Pace, his wife, Lucinda Gibson, and their children: William Byron, who at age 15 had served with his father in the Mormon Battalion, Mary Ann, Warren Sidney, Martha Elmina, John E. and Amanda L. Pace. A second family was composed of Andrew Jackson Stewart, his wife, Eunice Haws, and their children, Sarah, Catherine and Andrew Jackson Jr. A young couple, John Courtland Searle and his wife, Jerusha Morrison Hill were there too. Their baby would be the first white child to be born in the new settlement (and also the first to die). Also in the group were two youths, Allison Hill (14), who was a brother-in-law of John C. Searle, and Nathaniel Haws (18), brother of Eunice Haws Stewart."
