John had a hat shop in North Carolina. He moved his family to the vicinity of the Moravian community of West Salem, Edwards County, Illinois in 1837. He owned a large farm in Illinois.

John first married to Marie Magdalena "Mary Polly" Walk (1783-1822) on 20 Oct 1803 at Stokes (now Forsyth) County, North Carolina. John and Mary were the parents of seven known children, four boys and three girls. All seven children lived to maturity. However some records show them with six children, four boys and two girls. The seven known children are namely:

1. Jesse Clodfelter (1804-1870)

The family lived in the vicinity of the Moravian community of Friedberg, then on the border of Stokes and Rowan Counties, North Carolina, but presently on the border of Forsyth and Davidson County, North Carolina.

After Mary died, John remarried to Mary's widowed elder sister, Johanna (went by Hannah) Walk Mock (1772-1853) on 17 Feb 1824 at Friedberg, Rowan (now Davidson) County, North Carolina. Hannah had no children by either of her husbands.
