John married Susan Scontz (who was born about 1843 in Indiana) in Decatur County, Indiana on 10 October 1861. I have also seen Susan's maiden name spelled as Scounch. John and Susan had 4 children of which I currently have the names of 3: Ira born in Indiana about 1864, Gabriel E., born 1 September 1867 in Greensburg, Decatur County, Indiana (and the one whose history will also be shown here) and Alvin, born about 1874. By 1900, only 2 of the 4 children of John and Susan were living.
Alvin is shown as dying in 1896 with subsequent burial in the Evergreen Cemetery in Montgomery County, Iowa as is his father, John, dying in February 1915.
There is no record there about John's wife or parents.
Ira may be the Ira A Pribble, shown on Findagrave as memorial 75714006, with burial at Gypsum Hill Cemetery in Saline County, Kansas.
When Gabriel was 4, the family left Indiana and settled in Montgomery County, Iowa. Not only the family of John, but John's parents were also there in the 1880 census.
