  • Notes 
    • In 1815, John's parents removed to Mason county, Kentucky, and there resided until 1819, when they came to Indiana, locating in Veal Township, Daviess county, where the father practiced his profession. John was raised in what was then a wilderness, there being only one house between where his father then lived and Washington that indulged in the luxury of glass windows. At the age of twenty he began working on a flat-boat and continued that occupation for ten years. Since that time he carried on farming.

      Beginning in 1845, John voted the Democratic ticket, prior to that he was a Whig. In 1840 he was elected justice of the peace for Veal Township, and in 1851 was elected to represent Daviess county in the General Assembly. He was trustee of Veal Township two terms. In 1855 he attended a reunion of the surviving members of the Constitutional Convention and of the Assembly of 1851-52. John and Alice were members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
