We know he had at least 16 children with 2 wives over the years. 1st wife was Rachel JACKSON, dau of Thomas Jackson and Ann. Looking for John's parents, siblings, etc. I am descended from John and Rachel. She died about 1808 and John and his only son at the time moved to Jefferson Co., Ohio and he married a Catherine Marquis or Cooper. She was a widow with 2 children as we understand it from an old family record.
