New York, USA
|Death: ||Mar. 2, 1877|
John was a carpenter born in New York. He moved to Cincinnati and boarded in a home owned by the Collins family according to the 1860 Census. He married Emma Collins about 1861 or 1862. He and Emma moved to Illinois sometime after the end of the Civil War, possibly around 1867. They had two living children, Alida Jo (born about 1862) and Frank (born about 1867). John died of Typhoid pneumonia in 1877 was was taken to Ohio to be buried in Spring Grove.
If you look through Spring Grove's burial record note that they misspelled Conover so look under Conoven.
Emma (Collins) Conover was born in Ireland in 1842. Her family came to America around 1849. The last census record for Emma was 1880 and shows her still living in Illinois. I have been unable to learn when she died or where she is buried.
Alida Jo Conover Abernathy (1862 - 1936)*
