John P. McCune, farmer and stockbreeder, Cedar township, post-office Solon; was born in Jefferson County NY, November 28, 1819, and spent his boyhood there until he was seventeen, when he emigrated to Ohio with his parents, William and Sally McCune, both natives of Vermont, and settled in Summit county. There the subject of our sketch lived until 1839, when he took a trip down the Mississippi river, and finally came to Iowa, and settled in Johnson County in March 1840, and took a claim in Big Grove township, and moved to Cedar township in 1851, where he now owns 765 acres of fine land. He has a fine stone residence and pays considerable attention to breeding and raising fine stock. He was married Nov. 28, 1844 to Electra R. Sutliff, a native of Trumbull county, Ohio, and a daughter of Allen C. and Nancy Sutliff, who came to Cedar township in December 1838. They have twelve children, seven now living, viz: Harriet, now married to L. Clark, Tully S., Dora, now married to Geo. Hagea, William J., Edith B., now Mrs. M. Umdenstock, Helen E. and Nancy M.
