The following was written by Johnnies niece Rita Rodrick:
John or Johnnie was just twelve when he died of pneumonia following a bout of measles. As was common before antibiotics, he died very suddenly and it left a great hole in the family. Johnnie was spoken of often and remembered with great love. He is buried in the cemetery in Oronoco, MN with his parents. As Daniel had helped layout the cemetery, a section was set aside for his family, surrounded by four great pines. John was buried there with his grandparents. The four pines still stand guard over these loved ones.
