Notes
farmer, Friends minister
1981 book:
John sold to his brothers Daniel (1E5) and Benjamin (1E9) his share of his father's 
farm. John lived in Tredyffrin Twp., Chester Co., Pa.  Apparently, John's land in 
Tredyffrin Twp. was land owned by his father Thomas.
	In 1792, John was recorded as a Friends minister.
 John and Susanna were members of the Religious Society of Friends. John died of 
yellow fever contracted in Philadelphia while he was attending Yearly Meeting, against 
the advice of family and friends. John was wrapped in his bedclothes and buried at 
night by his brothers, so great was the terror of the dreaded yellow fever.  
	In 1784, John and his family moved to Tredyffrin Twp., Chester Co., Pa.  In 
1798, Susanna and the children lived in a rented home in Radnor Twp., Delaware Co., 
Pa., northwest of the intersection of Radnor-Chester Road (Rte. 320) and Conestoga 
Road, not far from the farm of Jacob Maule (1E8). Later, she and the children moved 
to Frankford in Philadelphia County, where she apparently remarried a man named 
Harper.
