I ran across some information on John Henry Justice while searching for info on my great-grandfather David Justice. The George Justice family living in Putnam Co. beginning in the 1830s moved there from Tazewell, Va. In the 1820 Census for Tazewell, George has a son under 10 (no name given). In the 1830 census for Putnam Co., Ind. George has a son between 15 and 19. Indiana marriage records show that Hiram Justice married Ann Vest in 1833 in Putnam Co., Ind. Since George's family is the only Justice family residing in that county at the time, I think Hiram is George's son. Hiram and his wife had a son named John Henry Justice. John Henry is buried in the Sugar Grove Methodist Church Cemetery in Edgar Co., Illinois.
The Putnam County George Justice is a descendant of Johan Gustafsson who arrived in New Sweden in 1643.
