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.
