      The citation above provides the following:
      "John was twice married. First, to Virletta O'NEAL; they had sevenchildren -- six of whom lived to maturity. Second, to Priscilla NIXON,the widow BEEZLEY; they had three children, all who lived to maturity.

      John was shot on the Court House steps in Danville, Illinois, onAugust 24, 1863. He was shot because he was wearing a "butternut pin,"a symbol of support for Confederate troops, or for the support of theidea that states could secede from the Union. Less than a month later,John died from that gun shot.

      From his grave stone: "The brave man seeks not popular applause, norover-powered with arms deserts his cause. Undaunted, though foiled, hedoes the best he can. Force is of brutes, but honor is of man."

      He had served in the U.S. Army himself during the Mexican War. He hadsons serving in the U.S. Army during the Civil War; he had a brotherserving as a Captain in the U.S. Army during the Civil War. He was nocoward. He was simply a man with his own opinion about what washappening in the Civil War.

      For decades, his descendants attempted to pretend that he had beenwearing the butternut pin "by accident." That is not believable. Andthe words carved in his grave stone argue that -- at the time of hisdeath -- the family realized and admitted why he had died."
