The 1851 census listed this resident as shoemaker as his father had been before. Like all 'pioneer' settlers son John was also a farmer who provided the necessities of life for his family and neighbours."

      "July 28, 1865 issue of The Borderer he was listed as the Secretary of the Dorchester Agricultural Society.  He would have been 48 years old." [16, 17]
