*The above mentioned defendants are, I believe, the children and grandchildren of Thomas John/Johns, Sr. & Mary Magdalena (Stickle) John/Johns. Thomas, Sr. was born 12 July 1764 in Wales, died 28 Jan. 1848 in Madison Twp., Richland Co., Ohio. Mary Magdalena was born 1765, died 15 May 1848 in Madison Twp., Richland Co., Ohio. They were both buried in the David John/Johns Burying Ground on Lucas Rd., Rt. 39 south which is now known as Lantz-Beer Cemetery. Their son was David John/Johns, Sr. After David died in 1889 he didn't want to be buried there, so he had 8 members of his family, including his parents, dug up from there and reburied in Mansfield Cemetery in Lot. 30, Block 9.
