4th Illinois Cavalry
Company D and Headquarters
John served a private with the 4th Illinois Cavalry and was promoted to Quartermaster. He moved to Missouri in 1885.
Illinois Census of 1850, through 1880 shows John in Mt. Morris, Ogle County, in early 1900s Missouri, Census shows John living in Big Apple Township, Oregon County, Missouri
Here lies a conflict:
John is listed being buried in two different cemeteries:
Koshkonong Cemetery of Big Apple Twp, Oregon Co, Missouri and in the Oakwood Cemetery so the records show in Mt. Morris Township, Ogle County, Illinois
