He started drawing his pension on 20 June 1892. On 3 June 1904 his wife, Minnie, started drawing a widow's pension. Then on 21 January 1907 a guardian pension was issued to Elmer A. Anderson; however, the record does not contain any children names. In both of these civil war records, it's documented that John served in Company D, 11th U. S. Infantry.

The first tombstone is the one mentioned above and issued by the government. The second one apparently was created at the time his wife, Minnie, died which included the inscriptions for both John and Minnie. The memorials, with tombstone pictures, are located here.
