He carried the ball with him through his long life.....born 14th day of Sept. 1716 and died 26th day of Dec. 1829, aged 113 y., 3 mo., 12 da. He brought his young wife and two children with him, also a little Irish lassie. During a scourge of smallpox his wife and both children died and himself severely marked. After a widowhood of some years and at the age of 58 he led this Irish lassie (Jennet McNeere) at the age of 13 to Hymen's Altar. This proved to be a happy and fruitful marriage. They raised and educated 11 children, 6 boys and 5 girls: viz. Bettie, John, Robert, Mary, David, Mattie, Arch, Rosa, Jennie, Thomas, and William....... a native of Ireland, a soldier of 1776, and a sincere believer in Jesus Christ."

I was looking for John's parents to fill in some of my DNA information and went down the rabbit hole of the bible record/letter. Found a source for it and added it. I also updated the Bio section a little bit - Anything I have done can of course be reversed by clicking on the Changes tab at the top.
