John's memoir is quite extensive and describes the meeting, courting, and marriage to Rebecca. John was a blacksmith in/near Clinton c 1889-1892 and even empoyed 2 of Rebecca's brothers, he said. My friend, Larry James, grandson of John and Rebecca, is in the process of publishing the memoir into a book. Dennis Earle has helped us understand the geography of Clinton, streams and rivers, and the location of the Sharp land. he has been extremely helpful. Richard Crowe
