Sources: (1) My notes on John's father says they moved to Warren County, Ohio in about 1817. John always said he was born in Ohio up until 1900 when he may have confessed he was actually born in Virginia. And it says he was born June 1816. That would have been before his parents left for Ohio. Anyway, there is a real possibility that he was born in VA and not OH. I can't find any information to back that up other than my hunch and his "confession." There may have been some reason to hide the fact that he was not actually a native of Ohio. (2) Date is from tombstone. History of Fountain Co., Wabash Twp. - Ohio. (3) 1880 Census, Fountain Co. (Wabash), IN - age 64, OH, VA, VA. (4) 1880 Census, Fountain Co.
