    Notes 
    • One of his life-long friends was a Samuel Dayton was acquainted with John in Pennsylvania, a neighbor in Leslie, Minnesota and in Minneapolis.
    • (Research):In the 1875 census of Irving, Kandiyohi, John is living next door to a Laurie Rand, age 26, who is living with J.B. Rand, age 64 or 84.  Could this be his wife?  J.B. could be her father, as a J.B. Rand was on John's probate records.  John also has a 9 year-old female, Lily living with him.  Who is this?

      The Stearns County, Minnesota death records (FHL Film #1309459 item #9) show an unnamed Brown who died 28 Oct 1871.  Parents were J.W. and Mary Brown.  This could possibly be John and Laura's child.
    • (Medical):Widow's claim for pension dated 31 Dec 1885 says the cause of death was due to a large double scrotal hernia which he contracted while in the service of the U.S.
