John was a teacher in western Ohio until he enlisted for the Union Army in the Civil War. He fought at Fort Donelson, Fort Shiloh and other places. He was later transferred to a gunboat and were in the vicinity of Vicksburgh, at the time of the surrender. John served through the three years, re-enlisted, became a Captain, and at the close of the war returned home to Carroll County, Ohio. After a short time at home, he, with other pioneers, went to the new State of Kansas, where they founded a town. He was active in all the affairs of his adopted State, was a member of the State Legislature, and finally died in Kansas. John was survived by his wife and at least three children.
This is likely the John T. Morrison found in the 1880 Census of Harvey Township, Smith County, Kansas, employed as a depot agent, living with wife Ella L. and children Bluma D. and Bela G.
