John left his wife and young son before 1880 and moved west to Burt and Thurston counties in Nebraska. His wife moved back in with her parents and later married a man who worked on her parents’ farm, Martin L. Tanner.

John came back to Indiana a few times to visit his siblings and one of his sisters, Melinda Jane (Scott) Martin, later settled in Burt and Thurston counties. One of his nephews took care of him in his later years.

He worked as a hired hand on a farm until his health began to fail. His will specifically stated that his siblings were not to receive anything from his estate, and he also left money to his son Sherman, “from whom I have not heard for a great many years.” It is not known if he was aware that his son had moved to Coles County, Illinois several years before.
