He was born Hans Peter Rasmussen in Brandrup, Odis, Denmark.

His father is Hans Peder Rasmussen and his mother is Ann Kirstine Ludvigsen Kjar.

He married Ann Walrade Whipple on 24 Aug 1874 in Salt Lake City, Utah. They had six children: Harriet Ann, Edson Stanton, Minnie Leoma, Blanche Walrade, Ralph Willard and John Charles.

The above information was contributed by Marty Beadleston.

He served the citizens as Justice of the Peace in the Safford precinct and he was a Stake Patriarch. After Ann passed away on 11 Dec 1927, he met and married Celestia Chloe Durfee Spencer on 22 May 1929. They served as ordinance workers in the Mesa Arizona LDS temple. He died from injuries from an automobile accident that he and Chloe were in along with his daughter Harriet and her husband. Spencer Kimball was the Stake President and spoke in his funeral. Information on his death certificate says that his father is James Bilby from New York and that he, John, was born in Missouri. (There has to be more to this story...)
