Bothe John and Dorcas died in PutnamCounty, she in VA, and he in W. Va., though both ddied in the same house, The State had been divided.
Even as a mature man, John's head wwas a mass of golden curles which, shining in the sunlight, could be seen afar off. He was known for his hospitality. He died of typhoid fever, One daughter was ded and her small children lived in Mo.; the other daughter was quarantined in her home across the river because her children had scarlet fever. He was cared for by a faithful servant and by his nephews.
Presbyterian, but not religious. He deserted his religion when his sons died, so his heart broke.
