    • John worked at Westinghouse, Sharon, PA - John lived at Sharon, PA in 1942; at Parker, PA in 1911 - Info provided by Evelyn Knight, Columbia, MO - John lived at Canonsburg, PA in 1936; at Alliance, OH in 1918; at Pittsburgh, PA in 1918, 1928, 1929, 1935, 1936; at Miami, FL in 1957, 1958 - John lived w/his sister, Alta, in St. Petersburg, FL for a while - John Lived at McKeesport, PA in 1936 and was living there with a daughter, Marvil, when he died -- 1920 census gave occupation as Steel Worker -- John lived in Venango Co., PA when he registered for the draft in 1942 and listed his "nearest relative" as Dan Fogel; The only Daniel Fogel I find on the 1930 Venango Co., PA Census was b. in the 1870's and was md. to a woman named Margaret; If this is the Dan John referred to in the Draft Registration, I doubt he married Marvil as he was much, much older than her -- John was survived by 3 daughters and 1 son living in the Pittsburgh, PA and Miami, FL areas -- John lived with the family of his sister, Marie (Pryer) Brown, in 1940 and stated he was md. though divorce proceedings began shortly afterwards -- John lived in Oil City, PA in 1949 -- John lived in Franklin, PA in 1939 -- John was not mentioned among the survivors in the obit of Rosa (Pearl) Hughes
