John was born in 1843. Abigail Murdock Goff told Tracy Murdock Rushing that when John was a teen, his brother Pleasant went off to fight in the Civil War and he wanted to go, but was a year too young. He then ran off in the night and lied about his age so that he could fight! He passed away in 1921.
