Birth: Feb. 4, 1856
Ontario, Canada
Death: Oct. 30, 1937
Cook County
Illinois, USA

John J. Risdon came to Chicago from Ontario, Canada in the 1880's. He worked as a claims agent (attorney) for the railroad. He married Delight Mills, of Indiana, in 1894, possibly his second marriage. They lived in Chicago's 3rd Ward, including their last home at 3900 Lake Park Ave, where some of Delight's siblings joined them by the 1920 U.S. Census. By that time, he was a well-established claims attorney in Chicago, working for Chicago Mutual Casualty Co. Delight, who also went by Delia, is my second cousin, four times removed. She followed him to the grave in 1943.
