Birth: Dec. 24, 1776, Germany
Death: Nov. 17, 1842
Adams County

It is likely that the headstone for John is the same as for his wife, Mary (Polly), and that the inscription is on the back side of that marker. While this grave marker states that he was born in Germnay, some records, including the article that follows, indicate that he was born in Pennsylvania.

from: Chicago: Biographical Review Publishing Co.
John, was born in Pennsylvania, while his father was a native of Germany and came to America in colonial times and served in the Revolutionary war. He was a farmer and lived in Washington county, Pennsylvania. John served in the war of 1812 and removed to Kentucky directly after the war, being a pioneer of Wayne county. He has served as County Commissioner several terms. In 1833 he removed to Illinois and settled in Adams county, where he bought land in Honey Creek township, residing there until his death. The maiden name of his wife was Mary Beeson. She survived her husband a few years and died at the house of her son, John, Jr., in Pea Ridge township
