Birth: Jun. 23, 1824
Ohio, USA
Death: Jul. 16, 1897
Howard County
Indiana, USA

John Linson was definitely born in Ohio -- probably born in Coshocton Co, OH. He married Sarah Marshall in Bartholomew Co, IN, on 18 Jan 1849.

They were the parents of seven children: Francisco "Frank" "Bub," born 1849; Samantha Florence "Flora," born 1851; Clarietta Jane (known as Jane), born 1853; Cynthia Arabelle "Belle," born 1855; William Oscar, born 1857; Marshall "Mart," born 1860; Edward "Eddie," born 1864.

John Linson was listed as a brick mason in the 1850 census in Jackson Twp, Bartholomew Co, IN, and in the 1880 census in Johnson Twp, Clinton Co, IN. (Has anyone found him the 1860 and 1870 censuses?)

John Linson Dead

Calmer Bradford received a telegram last week from Russiaville, Howard county, near Kokomo, announcing the death, there, of JOHN LINSON, who formerly lived out on Whitecreek, this county. He was an uncle of Mrs. Calmer Bradford, Ham Linson, Wm. Linson and Melvin Linson, and well known here. The funeral will take place Sunday. Columbus, Indiana Weekly Times 23 July 1897 p 6.

Above was in a briefer form on the front page Columbus Daily Herald Saturday. 17 July:

H. S. Linson and wife went to Russiaville yesterday to attend the funeral of John Linson, an uncle. The deceased used to live here, was a brick mason and helped to build many of the business blocks of this city. He was seventy-three years of age.

On a visit a couple of years before, he is called a “forty-niner” of that county in Columbus (Bartholomew) and a cousin of George Buxton.
