John's gravestone is situated between both his wives and there is a baby's grave behind one wife.
In 1840, prior to his marriage, John lives in Richmond, RI and after his first marriage he lives in Westerly until near his death as he outlived both wives. He is listed in the 1850, 1860, and 1870 census. In 1870 at the age of 75 he is listed as a mill worker. The 1860 census is very faint and hard to read.
I have found two researchers to help me with this line back to the immigrant Jeffrey Champlin.
