I believe he was married to a woman known as Mettie in 1899. His father and mother are listed in the 1880 Census. His father was Rueben Kurr. His mother was Malinda Leffler. Malinda's father was John Leffler who died in St. Lois MO in Civil War. Rueben's father was Eli Kurr who came over from Germany to Penn thru Ohio to Decatur County. He died as a result of a rat biting him in a hay mow. Listed in 1850 Census. e-mail me. Important. My aunt Margie knew John and Mettie. Mom may have known them. Aunt Margie would love to meet you. John's sister Laura Kathryn somehow was in Illinois working at Arthur Burkett's store when she met and married James Riley Scrivner - my aunt and mother's grandpa. How did Laura end up in Illinois, do you know? Thanks! Contact me. I will send you what I have. I am just now getting it entered in Family Tree software. Do you know any more than I have just told you? Oh yes, a woman named Bertha Harding says Lefflers are descended from Doty's who came over on Mayflower. Where this is documented I have not found yet. I got most of this information from my other aunt, deceased.
