John William Admire was a farmer who lived in Kentucky, Illinois, and Arkansas during his lifetime and fathered 16 children. The place of his burial is unknown. Although he and his third wife were living in Arkansas around the time of his death, there is no record that he died in Barham or Chidester, Ark. He might be buried in the Fernwood Cemetery in Roodhouse, Greene Co., Illinois, but there is no tombstone in this cemetery for him either.
