John Logan Dines was born near Roscoe, St. Clair County, Missouri, on January 16, 1871. He was the son of William F. and Rebecca Jane (Knouff) Dines. His parents had come to Missouri during the year 1869, from Vermilion County, Illinois.
On October 14, 1896, he married Miss Minnie Mae Carroll. They were married in St. Clair County at the home of N. T. Casey, a Justice of the Peace. After the marriage, the couple lived on several different farms in the county. They were the parents of seven children, Vern, Bill, John Les, Bertha, Dorothy and Ted. One child, unnamed, died at birth in 1902.
On the occasion of their Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1946, John purchased five gallons of ice cream and Minnie baked a cake on her wood stove. They invited all of their family and friends to join them at the home. They served many meals in this home to a host of grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends. John loved to catch grandchildren with the crook of his cane as they ran by his rocking chair. And children were always running by.
John Logan Dines died on November 16, 1954, in Appleton City at the age of eighty-three years and ten months. John's obituary gives a clear description of his life's philosophy. It states, "He was remembered as a kind, sympathetic and loving man to all who knew him. He was always concerned about the future welfare of his children, teaching them the ways of good citizenship."
