Note*   The LDS Patron Files finds John and includes the following notes:

# One source indicated John died "19 March 1913, near Lawton, [Comanche Co.], Oklahoma;" another that he died 19 March 1913 at Eskridge, Wabaunsee Co., KS."

I have been provided a burial location but unable to confirm that information.

What's curious about the conflict is that these to locations are not e ven close to each other.

# John Franklin and Matilda Jane (STULL) FIRESTONE (cousins of the tire FIRESTONE) left Ada, Hardin Co., OH "with his wife and 3 [of his] children on Sep 26, 1892 in a covered wagon for Mayberry, Nebr."3
