John sailed to America in 1852 on the ship Kennebec. The first documentation to place him in Utah is his marriage to Jane Lubbock in Salt Lake City on 11 December 1853. His name is also recorded with the Utah, Territorial Militia Records in 1853. He likely arrived in Utah in 1852 or 1853, but further research is needed to determine the year of his arrival and the name of the pioneer company with which he traveled to Utah.
John became a member of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on 3 October 1875 at Prairie City, Grant, Oregon.
The years of his birth and death are confirmed by the inscription on his gravestone in Iowa.
