John was born in Danville, Illinois to Jacob H. Bumgardner and Margaret Baston.
John was married to Mary Inez Sullivan on May 1, 1872 in Cloud Co., Kansas, and they had seven children.
Jno. W. Bumgardner was born at Danville, Illinois in 1849, and moved to Iowa with his parents when five years old. Five years later he came to Kansas where he resided until his death at the age of 57 years on Saturday, March 16th, 1907. Mr. Bumgardner had long been a resident in the neighborhood where he died, and had the respect and esteem of a wide cirlce of friends. He was a popular and successful auctioneer and his business in that line gave him a much larger circle of friends than ordinally [sic] falls to men, and it is doubtful it many met him in that capacity who did not later become his friend. Mr. Bumgardner had been suffering for many weeks with cancer of the stomach and his death was not unexpected. He leaves a wife and grown family to mourn his loss. The funeral sermon was preached at the Christian Church near Heber by his old friend and pastor Rev. Bushong. Later the body was laid to rest in the Oakland Cemetery. It is said the largest concourse ever assembled at that place gathered to pay their last sad tribute to the memory of their friend and neighbor, over one hundred and fifty teams joining in the procession to the cemetery.
