Birth: 1790
New York, USA
Death: Jun. 7, 1862, USA

Born in Tompkins, New York. Though John's grave marker implies a birthdate of abt. 1800, census and family records put it at around 1790.

In 1840, following in the footsteps of sons Alvah, Walter and Alanson, John and Mary came to Iowa County, Wisconsin, bringing with them their youngest son, John A. The 1850 US census has them in Ridgeway, but by 1852 they had relocated to the then-thriving small community of Dover, where Walter and Alanson both lived. By occupation, John was a farmer.

John passed away in 1862, and is buried in Alanson's private family burial plot, now known as the Dover Culver Cemetery.

John and Mary had eleven children: DeLancey b. 1810; Alvah (buried in Old Helena Cemetery, Iowa Co.) b. 1811; Alanson (whose wife, Abigail, and daughter, Frances, are also buried here) b. 1813; Frances b. 1815; Wilson b. 1820; twins William and Walter b. 1822; Malinda Climena b. 1824; Alphonse b. 1826; Joshua B. (who became a Civil War colonel of repute and the first mayor of Duluth, Minn.) b. 1828; and John Almond b. 1831.
