This is what I know about John and his family, so far.
When I visited the cemetery, I learned that John m. Elizabeth__? after Delilah died in 1862. Elizabeth died and is buried next to John and Delilah. There is another article on AGSI about John's estate and why it was probably never probated. After Elizabeth died in 1865, John married Mary Ann Polka. John died in 1868 and Mary Ann contested the will and asked that it not be probated! Apparently she succeeded in stalling the probate until 1823, but according to the article the estate was already being divided and sold.
