This profile was adopted by Elizabeth Harris on December 8, 2013. I have made the following changes in the original entry:
Removed "Robert" as a middle name.
Marked the birth date and birth place as uncertain. There is a stone at Hat Creek Presbyterian Church erected in his memory, but this was done years after his death. I would like to see better documentation of these dates. All available information does suggest he was born in northern Ireland, but I don't think we have proof that it was in Londonderry.
Removed "Peters Township, Cumberland, Pennsylvania, USA" as his death place. He almost certainly died in Virginia. This is probably a confusion with someone else.
Previously he was linked to Robert Irvine and Margaret Wylie as parents, but Margaret's profile states that she died in 1674, well before John was born. i have removed these links, as of October 20, 2016.
The child Jo Anna does not appear in the history of this family by Julia Asher and Marian Asher Fawcett, of Hat Creek Virginia.
