John (20) Grosvenor
Birth: Dec. 14, 1810, USA
Death: May 5, 1847, USA

Born in a two room log cabin on his farm one mile west of Glenn Cemetery. His father died when he was 10 years old. He married Agnes Lawrence. He apparently led an idylic life. The hunting and fishing were good and the land amazingly fertile. Indian corn grew wild and profusely providing food for both man and livestock. He cleared farmland and prospered. Unfortunately he died young, at 36, leaving his wife Agnes 36, son Parker 14, daughters Mary A. 12, Martha, 8, and Sarah 5. Agnes then married (19 Jul 1849) Peter Kiefer who had a store on Degonia Creek. In 1855, with Parker married to Eliza J Herring and Mary Ann married to Willis Crain, Agnes with her a two younger children and all the Kiefers moved to DeSoto where Peter opend a store.
She died there and is interred in DeSoto Cemetery.
