August 2, 1870
Jackson, Johnson County, Missouri

In 1864 John enlisted in the Wisconsin Volunteers. He was so ill when he was discharged at the end of the war that Mary and Lorenzo drove a team and wagon 640 miles to Indiana to bring him home. In Martin County, Minnesota he became too weak to travel further, so the family was moved to him. They lived in Minnesota until October 1866 when John's doctor recommended a warmer climate for his health.

The 1870 census finds them in Johnson County, Missouri with three additional children - Mary Jane, George William, and Asa Horatio. No occupation was given for the Sally McBride who was living with the family. Could she have been related to Prudence McBride who married John's brother George?
