John W. Ballantyne was born October 20, 1862 in Bandera, Texas to Robert and Marinda Minear Ballantyne.

John married Julia Minerva Jump June 11, 1890 in Charter Oak, Iowa.

They lived for a time on the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. They were there in 1895 when the Robert Thomas Ballantyne family stopped and stayed for 4 years on their way from Texas to Nebraska. The only white people living there at the time were John and Julia and the Robert and Lydia Ballantyne family. They lived across the road from each other. Robert and Lydia had a frame house and John and Julia had a sod house. The Indians were very kind to them.

John and Julia stayed when Robert and Lydia left and later bought a homestead near Lexington, Oklahoma and lived there the rest of their lives.

They never had any children.

John passed away December 31, 1950 in Lexington, Oklahoma and is buried in the Lexington Cemetery.

Information on John was taken from his obituary in the Purcell Register, Jan. 4, 1951.
