Buried on former Marsh farm in Conescon, Ontario.
His first wife, Elizabeth Davis, bore him five children. The eldest of these was Catharine, born 1794, who married an educated young Englishman of good family, Eratus Howard a union that blending as it did the best blood of England and France gave a long list of distinguished names to the learned professions in Canada. This family not only furnished to Methodism a fine church edifice, but many clergymen as well : Thomas Demorest, Nathan H., Howard and his brother Eratus S.; Thompson Howard and his brother E. E. Howard, and Fred Howard, a son of the latter; Valentine Rightmeyer, and Dr. E. Badgley ; and Miss Althea (Dolly) Howard, who is engaged in evangelistic work. Nor has Methodism alone drawn from this rich stock of talent. The English Church, the Bar of two provinces, the Bench of the State of Iowa (Judge Thomas Giverson), the medical and teaching professions have all been enriched by the broad culture and tolerant spirit of many descendants of the truth-loving old Huguenot professor, John de Morest.
