bullet  General Notes:

The first child born to M.P. and Catherine was a son, John Joseph on 29 Aug 1863. He was a quiet, gentle man who never married

When he came to visit the Glairs, he always had a bag of candy so they called him "Candy Uncle John". His father left him the 100-acre farm Lot 1, Con 3, Pus 1 inch. From the executors he bought Lot 13, Con 14, on 26 June 1914 for $3,000. On 16 Apr 1920 he sold it to John Ehrhardt for $3,700. On 9 Nov 1927 he bought Lot 14, Con 4 from Thomas Harvey Doyle for $5,500 - Thomas had purchased it from the executors on 18 Feb 1922 for $6,300. He sold it 10 Apr 1941 to Sarah Jackson for $1,900.

He lived with his brother Thomas and Tom's wife Ina in the Borris Home, where the two of them farmed Lots 12 and 13 together until they retired in 1938. During the winters after James and Sarah moved to Detroit, John would go over and stay with them and work and then return in the spring to farm.

He died 20 July 1943 at the age of 80 and was buried in his father's plot in St. Joseph's Cemetery, Guelph, Block C, Section 31, Grave 24.
