Among the early settlers in Grimes County. He signed Austin's register of families in Dec 1822. His mother, Mary Peterson, was the sister of Francis and William Holland. The book Saga of Anderson tells of their migrations with the Hollands from Ohio. John and his brother William fought at the Battle of San Jacinto and are on the Honor Roll of the battle. They returned to Grimes County after the battle. His league of land was just south of the Francis Holland league near Anderson.
