  • Notes 
    • Several months after Adam and Henry came to South Dakota, John bought a railroad ticket to Yankton and walked the rest of the way to Adam's home. He and Henry got jobs working for the Milwaukee Road, building a railroad from Marion to Bridgewater. The railroad to Bridgewater was finished in 1880.

      John chose a claim about 2 miles south of his brother Frank's place.
