Since his brother Jerry, was still in Illinois in 1880, it looks like John and Mary were the first to move to Missouri.
In 1889 they were moving from Galena, KS to Oklahoma. Mary had all the relatives sign her autograph book when they left. One of his Downs cousins has a baby in Kansas in 1889, so that family was probably near them, too.
In 1896 they were in Ravenna, TX, then in 1899 they were moving back to Okla. when John (age 52) died on the trip in Asher, Ok; buried Sacred Heart Cem.
He left 2 sons: William (age 17) and Jerry (age 5).
Mary was back in TX in 1901 where she married her brother-in-law Newton Lindesmith in 1906.
Then they later moved to Okla. where Newton died in 1933.
