Birth: 16 AUG 1780 Kürnbach, Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg, Germany
Note: His age-at-death on his grave marker places his birth on 16 August 1778, a date often reported for him. However, the record of his birth and christening at the Kürnbach Evangelical Lutheran Church clearly indicates that he was born exactly two years later. Exact birth years were not as important when he was living as they are now. And people often lost track of their exact age but seldom reported their day and month of birth incorrectly. John clearly was one who lost track of the exact year he was born. – Lynn Garn
