Note: John apparently changed his name from Eitterman to Etiman about the time he moved to North Dakota in the early 1880's. He was teaching school at Ionia, Mich., in 1880. The 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 census all list his birthplace as Illinois, although he reportedly told his children that he was born in Missouri, and his death certificate (with his wife as informant) lists his birthplace as Iowa! He was farming in Durbin Twp., Cass Co., N.D., from at least 1906 through 1930 (he owned 160 acres in section 14 of Durbin Twp.). He also had a grain mill at one time at Mapleton which handled feed, flour, and coal. Note that his son, Clifford, reported that his father's middle name was "Marshall" rather than "Mathew" as reported by John's niece, Madia Eitterman Mesler.
