    Grandma Coonc states in her "Reminiscences of a Pioneer Woman" that her father and his brother William Fenn (who later was believed to have been living in Kaski, Illinois) came to America in 1828 in a sailing ship. Her father was 16 or 18.
    He was a plasterer and brick mason and arrived in Canada to work. Later John and William moved to Pike County, IL where both brothers married. It is also assumed they became American citizens. He married Mary Jory in Pike County and in 1846, while preparing to emmigrate to Oregon Mary suddenly died. Mary's sister, Elizabeth, took care of the children until they arrived in Clatsop, Oregon Territory and settled down. In 1847, John Fenn and Elizabeth Jory (his sister-in-law) were married. In 1849, John and unidentified "uncles" of my g. grandmother joined the California gold rush returning in 1850. The gold venture had been fairly successful. He returned from California by sailing ship and had to lay-off the Columbia River Bar for three weeks before it was safe to enter the river.
