Revolutionary War soldier.
At the age of 16 in 1777 he volunteered for service as a private in the Pennsylvania militia. He served five hitches which included the battle of White marsh, scouting and range duty, and helping to defend the frontiers against the Indians. His last tour of duty was in 1780

John married Mary Barnett sometime before 1790, and the couple had 10 children. After moving to Washington county in Indiana they found their way to Pike Township. John, however, remained in Washington until old age, when he moved in with his son Thomas and died at age 70.
