John F. Foor

Johannes F. Foor

Johannes F. Foor, a.k.a. John F. Foor, was born near Lithopolis of Fairfield Co., Ohio, 08 Nov. 1832. He was baptised 09 Dec 1832 at Zion Lutheran Church, son of Friedrich and Elizabeth (ALSPACH) FOOR.

In the 1850 census he's with his parents in Hancock Co., Ohio. He marries Mahala FRIEND, 07 Nov 1853 in Fulton Co., Indiana, and is there in Henry Twp. of that county in the 1860 census. By 1870 he has went to Neosho Co., KS. In the 1860, 1870, and 1880 census he is always listed as a farmer. By 1900 he's listed as a minister, and newspaper articles found previous to 1900 -- namely one dated 1881 -- show he was considered by that time, "Rev. John Foore".

It is unknown why he took on the spelling with the additional 'e' when his immediate relations and ancestors all maintained the spelling of FOOR rather than Foore. John died in 1915 in Parsons, Labette Co., KS.
