In July 1774, John's plantation where his widow lived in Rowan County, North Carolina, was ordered sold at auction to settle debts.
The sale took place in October and it was sold to the highest bidder, Nicholas WELCH.


John married Elizabeth in Quittapahilla Township, by Casper STOEVER, Lutheran Minister. About a year before the marriage, John received a land grant in Lebanon Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for 150 acres of land.
