|Birth: ||Oct. 22, 1875|
|Death: ||Apr. 3, 1930|
John (Jehu) was the son of Ambrus (A M) & Josephine. One family source shows his middle name as Smith.
While some things are known, there are big gaps in the information. He apparently had 3 wives:
1 Fay L West, 1874-1915, m. 1893, ch. Wm J & Madge
2 Unknown Nurse, said to be Ella Bryant
3 Effie Limbeke, 1901-unk, m. 1921
In Jan 1910 Jehu was injured in a Chicago street car accident. Transportation accidents were too common back then.
From 1918-1920 it is known that John and his two children were living on a farm in Stephensen, Michigan. By 1930 John and his then wife Effie were living in Minonk, Woodford County, Illinois.
On 3 Apr 1930 John was living with his last wife Effie and working as a veterinarian in Menonk. John died before 31 Dec 1920. (Apparently Effie is not buried in this cemetery but his first wife Faye is.)
While the cemetery shows John was born in 1874, his obit shows it was 22 Oct 1875.
