Biography:

It's not known where John was born; in the 1880 census he claims to have been born in Canada, while in the 1900 and 1920 censuses he claims to have been born in New York.

According to the 1880 census he was a farmer and his 10 year-old son was a herder, so he probably had animals.

John and Sarah were living in Palmyra, Nebraska in 1880, Richwoods, Illlinois in 1900, in Peoria, Illinois in 1910, and Walworth, Wisconsin in 1920.
