The North Dakota 1885 Census has him living in Emmons County with his wife and two children.

There are two Find A Grave memorials for John since there are two tombstones. Early cemetery inventories listed two burials not knowing at the time they were the same person. 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 and here.
