.... Susannah MEANS (1), (reportedly daughter of Francis MEANS and Hannah SMITH (1)), born 1 Nov 1786 (1), perhaps died after 1840 (c1840). John may be the one who married 1 Dec 1831 (3) Montgomery Co., IN (3)
.... Susan SPRADLING (3) since it seems unlikely his son did. John reportedly married second 25 Oct 1836,
.... Catharine POWERS or Catharine POMS in Tippecanoe Co., IN (1). However, this seems to be a mistaken identification of the groom. A John Albert Cooley, son of J and E Cooley , possibly Joseph and Elizabeth, born ca 1815, died 26 March 1891, interred Union Cemetery, Clarks Hill, Tippecanoe Co., IN (fg no stone pictured) is the husband of Catherine FORMS COOLEY, born 12 March 1819, died 26 Dec 1895, age 76y 9m 14d (fg).

John may have married second 1 Dec 1831 (3) Montgomery Co., IN (3) .......... Susan SPRADLING (3) but this seems unlikely if Rebecca did not die until 1834 . John married 18 Aug 1836 (3) Montgomery Co., IN (3)
.......... Abigail FRENCH (3), or Abigail McGILLIARD FRENCH, dau of John McGilliard and Susanna PRESTON (mw), born 1 Aug 1803 (fg,em) OH (c1850), died 21 Feb 1868 (mw,fg stone), age 65y 6m 21d (em), interred by John (fg). She married first 13 Dec 1822 Hamilton, OH (mw)
