His WW2 Draft Card gives this date and place of birth. The 1910, 1920 and 1930 censuses and the marriage record (in Iowa to Rose) also give Missouri as birthplace, only 1900 Census mistakenly gives Illinois as his birth place.

John was first married 16 October 1901 in Quincy, Adams County, Illinois to Grace Minnie Brosi.

He next married 17 Nov 1913 in Sioux Falls, Minnehaha County, South Dakota to Rose Bernice Caplan, but that marriage wasn't legal because he was still married to Grace. He was tried for the crime of bigamy in Sioux Falls in February 1914. He claimed he thought he had procured a legal divorce, but he was convicted anyway and was to be sentenced later. Have not yet found what his sentence was.

The divorce must have been procured as John and Rose were married again 19 March 1916 in Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie County, Iowa. They moved to and continued to live in Omaha, Nebraska. John was a traveling salesman.
