Biography

John developed in 1858 the metal screw-on lid used on jars for caning fruits and vegetables. These jars would be known as "Mason Jars".[1]

That same year he also created the screw-on salt shaker.

He married and had six daughters. There is the suggestion that he had an illegitimate son, John Pearl Mason Deshong.

John died on Feb 26, 1902 and was buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Manhattan, New York, New York [2][3]
