Unfortunately John's profile doesn't provide enough information to even search to see if he is possibly a patriot or even a troy.
Where was he born? Where did he die? When did he die? Where is he living during the RW? Did he immigrate to the US? If so, when and where?
I looked at his daughter's profile and it indicates she was born c1770 and died c1841 all in Scotland.
Hope this is helpful.
