John was born in London, England on October 3, 1884. In 1914, he filed on the eastern half of 17-71-3-W6 and SE 20-71-3-W6. He was living in Stettler, Alberta at the time of his enlistment in July of 1916. John was engaged to Catherine J. Carey of Montreal. It seems likely that they were unable to marry before John’s death on August 14, 1919.
