  • Note: After serving his required term in military service, John was retained by the king as an officer in his body guard as he was tall, erect and of great physical strength, being 6'-6" tall and weighing 225 pounds. Being impressed by his executive ability and his undaunted courage, the king soon made him governor of a province recently acquired by conquest. Soon he aroused the king's displeasure by refusing to execute a mandate which considered unjust, for which he was thrown into prison for thirty days. Upon release he openly voiced his displeasure of the punishment and vowed he would leave the country. Hearing of this the king had him again placed in prison. This taught him to be more cautious as he quietly made plans to go to America. In the summer of 1753 he, with his wife and two children, his father and mother and two sisters, took passage at Hamburg on the ship Leathley. After a long and perilous journey of several weeks, during which his mother died and was buried at sea, the party landed at Philadelphia 19 Sep 1753. The family settled in 1757 in what is now Randolph Co., NC. Here he lived the remainder of his days, death occured in 1801. Twice married, his first wife was a Lough, who bore him eight children. His second wife was Elizabeth Louck, who bore him seven boys.
