Birth: Sep. 30, 1849
Clearfield County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jun. 13, 1917
Indiana, USA

John was a hard worker, very strong physically, and at various times worked at butchering, had his own shop for a while, hauled pope stems on his "uncoupled" wagon for the oil fields of Lima, farmed, broke horses for himself and friends, and had his own liverly stable in Coldwater for a time. He died of an accident in Eel River Township, Indiana. He was plowing corn with a riding cornplow and a team of horses when a storm frightened the team and they ran straddle of a stump in "newground" and threw him from the plow, breaking his back. He was never able to speak after the accident, and died shortly thereafter. He had been a member of the Bruntwood United Brethren Church for over 35 years.
