You best order his CW pension file. Something is amiss.

John filed for his pension in 18?? from Colorado. His bro James [J A] resided in Lake Co from 1880. The filing yrs are smudged on both, but it looks like his mom Lucinda M DOFFLEMEYER filed for his pension 1884? 89?. But yet they have John's d/date listed as 4-23-1917. His mom couldn't file for his pension unless he was dec'd, and by 1885 MOLLIE had m J G SMITH, so she wouldn't be eligible to file. And, are you sure there was a marriage between Mollie/Nellie and John?

Lucinda left a will in Sedgwick Co...Bk 27, pg 21

Found his parents....
12-1-1842 Noah DOFFLEMYER m Lucinda PETERS, Van Buren Co IA
Looks like Noah had gold fever for a few yrs, as he is in El Dorado CA 1850.

John P is not at home 1875/1880 KS census.
