Ancestral View
John was a soldier in the War of 1812. He moved from Worcester County, Massachusetts to Caroline Center, NY in 1820 with his brother Henry. He bought 61 acres of heavily wooded land, built a log house and barn, and gradually cleared the land. It took two years to clear the land and build the house. He lived on this property the rest of his life. When he and Arethusa were to be married in 1823, he went back by oxcart for her and their household goods.

John was a quiet, unassuming man of retiring disposition, and was highly respected by all his acquaintances.
