Birth: Nov. 18, 1821
Harbour Grace
Avalon Peninsula Census Division
Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Death: Jun. 30, 1854
Montreal
Montreal Region
Quebec, Canada

Son of William Gordon and Elizabeth French, he married Louisa Elizabeth Lee-Whiting on the 25th of November, 1844 at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland. They had (at least) six children; William, Robert Lee, Isabella, James Whiting, John Jr., and Samuel Augustus Gordon.

John Gordon was the captain of the brigantine "Clipper", built in the Kitchin shipyards in River John, Nova Scotia in 1845 modelled expressly for the seal fishery, but also carried oats, potatoes, turnips, flour, butter, Indian corn, spruce board, oak staves and scantling.

Captain Gordon died in 1854 of cholera while in Montreal, and may have originally been buried at the cemetery in Christ Church Cathedral in what is now downtown Montreal. These graves were moved to the mountain in the mid to late 1850's in the interests of public health.
