In the fall of 1863 he entered Mount Pleasant College, at Huntsville, [Randolph county,] Missouri, where he continued his studies until October, 1864, when the school was disbanded on account of Price's raid through the state and the trouble it caused, and, returning to Brunswick [Chariton county], he enlisted in the Confederate army as a member of the company commanded by Captain James Kennedy. This was attached to Searcy's Regiment and Tyler's Brigade until January, 1865 (sic).
Mr. Halliburton was then transferred to I. N. Sitton's Company, Williams' Regiment, Jackman's Brigade and Shelby's Division.
He participated in the battle of Mine Creek [October 25, 1864, where six past or future state governors & long time mayor of Dallas, Texas, battled with two confederate generals, Marmaduke & Cabell, captured], and in June, 1865, received an honorable discharge from General Shelby at Corsicana, [Navarro county] Texas. In July following he started for Mexico with a relative, arriving at Chihuahua in November.
After spending the winter there as a clerk in a dry goods store he started northward, March 10, 1866, receiving transportation and subsistence for his services as a guard.
He arrived at San Antonio, [Bexar county] Texas, with only two dollars in his pocket, and from there worked his way to Missouri by driving and herding stock, reaching St. Louis in the month of August. From that time until September, 1867, he managed a general store for his father in St. Louis and at Bonfils Station in the same county, but he determined to abandon commercial pursuits for professional life and became a law student in the office of the firm of DeFrance & Hooper, at Kirksville, Missouri. In July, 1868, he returned to St. Louis county and aided in the work of harvesting and the fall planting, and during the winter of 1868-9 he was a member of the junior class in the St. Louis Law School.
In April, 1869, he received a license to practice law from Judge Irwin Z. Smith, of the St. Louis circuit, on the recommendation of Judge E. B. Ewing, without having to take an examination. In May, 1869, he entered the law office of DeFrance & Hooper, working for that firm until January 1,1871, for his board and clothes. On the dissolution of the firm he entered into partnership with the senior member, tinder the style of DeFrance & Halliburton, which connection was maintained until November, 1874. While residing at Kirksville he had a large and varied practice in Adair and adjoining counties, including the trial of cases of almost every character, and the firm of DeFrance & Halliburton were also general attorneys for the Quincy, Missouri & Pacific Railroad Company.
In the spring of 1874 his father removed to Milan, Missouri, and there in November, our subject joined him in a partnership, under the name of Halliburton & Son, this relation being maintained and a large practice enjoyed until April, 1877, when, desiring a broader field of labor, John W. Halliburton started for Texas. However, he stopped enroute at Carthage for a visit, and, being pleased with the city and county, decided to locate here.
On the 1st of May, 1877, he entered into partnership with Samuel McReynolds, and for almost a quarter of a century the firm of McReynolds & Halliburton, which is now the oldest legal partnership in the state, has maintained a leading position among the most prominent and capable lawyers in the entire commonwealth. Success has attended their efforts from the beginning, and their clientage has not only been very extensive but of a distinctively representative character. They are the general attorneys for [ A H Roger's], Southwest Missouri Electric Railway Company and the Central National Bank of Carthage, [ J E Lang president]. Their practice has largely been of a civil character in Jasper and adjoining counties and in the appellate and supreme courts.
On the 16th of October, 1878, in Kirksville, Missouri, Mr. Halliburton was married to Miss Julia B. Ivie, and they now have four living children:
Westley, a law student in his father's office; John J., Louise and Sarah, all at home.
John was a charter member,among 78 others, of Jasper County Camp 522, United Confederate Veterans(UCV), formed 22 May 1894 and held honorary rank of major general in 1908 when commander of UCV Department of Missouri.

He was appointed a member of the board of managers of the Confederate Home of Missouri, in March, 1897, and was reappointed in March, 1901.
