Finding such information, particularly when a child is born out of wedlock to someone married, is usually hard especially if the mother didn't tell anybody who the father was. There is the chance John's death certificate and marriage record has his correct father's name (assuming he was told who his father was).
It is possible something was recorded in the county Orphans Court records although this is only likely if John were to inherit something or at least claim to inherit something. Sometimes, and it wasn't very often and usually only involving single mothers, the fact of the birth was recorded in county Prothonotary office in a file called, I believe, Bastardy (or at least something like that).
John's baptismal record may or may not list the father's name.
