Birth: unknown
Death: Apr. 26, 1849

Aged 51 yrs.

John Eddy was born in Massachusetts, but grew to manhood in New York State, whither his parents moved when he was quite young. Upon reaching manhood, he bought timber lands, which he cleared a and reduced to cultivation, and he resided in New York until 1832, when he disposed of his farm and started for the Territory of Michigan, coming by the way of the Erie Canal and the Lakes to Monroe, and overland to Lenawee county. He joined friends in Fairfield township and remained with them until he selected a location. He soon bought 110 acres of land on section 31, in Blissfield township, of which about eight acres were cleared and contained a log house and log barn. He removed his family there in 1832, and there he continued to live until April, 1849, when he died, in his fifty-first year. (Memoirs of Lenawee county, MI)
