  • Notes 

    • John R. worked on his father's farm in Missouri until he came of age and then went in the company of Capt. William Roberts (relative?) and others to Calif. by the overland route, and, including the time he spent in the mines, was two years making the trip. He returned in the summer of 1852 by way of the Isthmus and New York. After spending two years with his father, he made another trip to Calif., overland, taking some cattle, and returned the next year by the same route as before. Gives marriage to Anne E. Roberts and says that he established himself on a farm which had previously been owned by Jehu Pyle, and he was still living there at the time of the biography in 1881. It says that he owned 400 acres, 330 in cultivation, and a good two story house and outbuildings, 200 apple and 100 peach trees, plus grapes. Gives death of his wife and lists his nine children by name. It further states that "Mr. Terrill is a man of winning address and much ability; he takes a warm interest in all educational matters and has carried his views into practice in the training of his children; a member of the Morality Lodge, N. 186, A.F. & A.M." The "History of Randolph County", 1920, also has a short biography on John Robert. It states that he lived on the same farm in Randolph Co. for 50 years. It is said that he got the money for his farm in Missouri through making a strike in the '49 California gold rush. (Above provided by W. Wayland)
