Citizen of The Republic of Texas
"John Shearn was born in England, May 15, 1826, and was thus only about 8 years old when his parents came to Texas. Most of his youth as well as the entire period of his manhood was passed in the city of Houston, with the making of whose history he had, like his father, much to do, although in a different way. His life was given to business pursuits, and he helped to develop a number of Houston's leading enterprises. His conduct was always marked by the same probity and the same unswerving sense of honor that was instilled into him by his father. He gave very little attention to public life, but still was not unmindful of his obligations as a citizen, discharging all the duties and functions of such in an acceptable manner.
"He married Miss Kate McAshan, then of Houston, but a native of Buckingham County, Virginia, where she was born June 22, 1835. She died May 21, 1884, and was followed September 15, 1888, by her husband".
