Biography

John, son of Ebenezer Cunningham and Rachel Chilcoat,[1] was born 22 November 1866 in Chester Township, Wayne County, Ohio.[1] He grew up there, where his father cultivated the land. In 1880 John H. (age 13) resided with his parents Ebenezer (49) and Rachel Cunningham (49), and his brothers David E. (16) and Charles Hillis (11).[2]

On 24 December 1891 in Ashland County, Ohio, he married Cora Bella Silvis[3] with whom he had two sons and a daughter:

Before 1900 John (age 33, farmer) and Cora Belle (32, mother of two, one living) settled in Orange Township, Ashland County, Ohio, with their son Hillis Henry (6)[14] next to his parents Ebenezer (age 69, farmer on his own land) and Rachel (69, mother of five, three living).[15] His brother Charles Hillis Cunningham and his family lived on the other side of their parents.[14]

After his mother's death in 1908,[16] his father lived with John's family. In 1910 the household in Orange Township consisted of John H. (age 42, mail carrier), his wife Cora B. (41), their sons H. Hillis (16, farmer) and Ralph E. (7), and his father E. H. Cunningham (79, esquire).[17]

His father died in 1914[18] and Hillis married in 1915[6] leaving John H. (age 53, rural route mailman), Cora B. (51), and Ralph E. Cunningham (16, farmhand on the home farm) as well as Cora's unmarried aunt Elizabeth M. Silvis (83) in their home in Orange Township in 1920.[19]

After Ralph's marriage in 1926,[12] John H. (age 63, rural mail carrier) and Cora B. Cunningham (62) moved to Polk, Ashland County, where they were located in 1930.[20]

John was still living in Polk when he died 8 December 1933 from a fractured skull due to an automobile accident in Ashland, Ashland County.[1] He was buried at Nankin Cemetery in Nankin, Ashland County.[21]
