John is first found the 1871 census in Burford, age 7, living with his parents and siblings.
He is in Bangor Township, Bay County, Michigan, as of the 1900 U.S. census. He is a carpenter and shown with his wife Nettie. His year of birth is shown as 1862. His gravestone dates his birth to 1863 and this rather more agrees with his age in the 1871 Canadian census.
The 1900 census also shows with John and Nettie, Sarah Thatcher, Nettie's mother, born in Pennsylvania in 1839.
The 1910 census has John and Nettie and, again, her mother Sarah, still in Bangor Township, Bay County.
John is still living as of the 1920 census, but died later that year. This shows his arrival in the United States as being in 1889.
