We have a John Peter King, b.26 Dec 1815, Sugar Creek, Armstrong PA, d.06 May 1896 McIntosh, Polk, MN in our family. He married "Lydia ??" in Ohio but we have no more information on the marriage date or location. While living in Ohio, John Peter King and Lydia ?? had a son, Daniel John King in Oct, 1840. Specific date or place is unknown. They moved to Laketon, Wabash County, Indiana. where we assume Lydia died (no record found yet) and John Peter King returned to Ohio, eventually marrying Magdalene Snyder. Daniel (and his sister?) were apparently taken care of in Laketon, IN by a friend or neighbor or acquaintance until adulthood. Daniel John King lived in Laketon, Indiana for the remainder of his life. He died in 1919. Daniel was married on 16 Feb 1869 in Wabash, Indiana to Mary Magdalene Grisso, b. 28 Mar 1847 in Clark County, OH, d.18 Mar 1944 in North Manchester IN. I believe Daniel was a Union soldier and also a farmer in Laketon, IN.
Daniel and Mary are my great grandparents. I have been researching for over a year to find more information about John Peter King and his predecessors. Any information or suggestions would be appreciated.
Our John Peter King did move with Magdalena to Waseca area of MN. Sincerely, Larry L. Thompson, Fort Wayne IN
