|Death: ||Jan. 25, 1876|
John was the eldest of five known children born to Rachel Callahan (1788-1856) and Abel Oxford. His family moved from Ohio to Vermillion County, Indiana, about 1821.
John married Mary Gilman (1818-BFR 1853) on July 23, 1835, and they had three known daughters: Lydia C., (1839-AFT 1880), Mary M. and Martha A.
Following the death of his first wife, John married Minerva A. Emery (1824-AFT 1900) on August 4, 1853. Three children were born of that union: Sarah R. (c1859-AFT 1883), John N. and George W.
AN ASIDE: After the death of his brother Elias (my Great-Grandfather) in the Civil War, John had himself named as guardian of Elias' children. Pension records and court documents affirm that John was not as honest in his guardianship endeavors as he should have been.
