General Notes: John is thought to be an only child of an Irish immigrant. John was thought to have magical powers because he had never seen his father. People came from all around for him to cure Thrash Mouth, which he did by blowing in their mouth and saying some words. He could talk the fire out of a burn. It is said that when he did this, all the redness left the wound and it never blistered.
After his service in the Civil War, John went home to Coweta County, Georgia, where his wife and two children were waiting. Prior to the war, he had worked for the railroad, but, now, he started farming full time. John and his wife, Mary Jordan, had 13 children. Nine were still alive in the 1900 Federal Census. They moved to Arab, Marshall County, Alabama, in 1892. The trip took them eight days. John farmed there, and at one time, he carried the U. S. Mail from Arab to Huelako. John was nicknamed "Robinson Crusoe", and it was a name he was not fond of being called.
John never forgot his enemies. Once in 1929, he and his grand-daughter , Annie, were walking down the road and a man in a buggy stopped to give them a ride. Annie Mae started to get in until John saw who it was and stopped her. John said "I'm not riding with you, you S.O.B. You fought againstme in the war". Annie Mae said that this was the only time she ever heard him use bad language.
