However, the records from the Baird & Hardy Funeral clearly state that he died in 1909.

Checking my RootsMagic database, I had cited his death date as December 13, 1910 from Baird & Hardy Funeral Home Records: Jay County, Indiana 1909-1911 (N.p.: n.p., n.d.), . Somehow I must have mistyped the date.
John was the husband of my paternal 2nd-great grandaunt, Catherine E. Lemasters (1840-1911), daughter of Luman Walker and Nancy (Young) Lemasters. John was a farmer in Madison Township, Jay County, Indiana.
I need to search out an obituary for him and see what additional information I can find on my next trip to Jay County.
