Something has occurred to me that may be worth pondering. It seems I remember in our prior discussions about John, that he was partially Native American.

In the Native American societies, surnames were not used and genealogy follow the Maternal, rather than the Paternal line. With that in mind, it would make sense that John received his Surname of Rich from his Mother because his Father had no Surname to give??? Just a thought to ponder...
