John's birth name was Kane and he had a Twin Sister Helen Kane and brother James Kane. Their parents were Patrick Kane and Ellen Carolan, both from Ireland. Patrick and Ellen left Ireland for religious reason, one was Catholic and one was Protestant. Patrick and Ellen died a few months apart from each other around 1899. They died of TB.

John, Helen, and James were put in orphanages and only John was adopted. John was adopted, around the age of 5 to 9 years old, by very loving parents Patrick George Horace 1870-1951 and Catherine Fields 1878-1952.

John served in the Army during WWI. He was stationed in England and when he had a leave of absence he went over to Ireland to look up his relatives. Unfortunately his grandparents had passed away not long before he went to Ireland and apparently his relatives were not very nice to him as they thought he was coming after his grandparents property. So sad as we have now lost our connection with Ireland.
