Clayton County Register/Journal, November 1893
John J. (Jackson) Carpenter was born in Lycoming County, Pa., May 1, 1824 and died at
the home of his son Alexander on Cox Creek, Clayton County, Nov 10, 1893. He was married to
Mary F. Marshall, Dec 22, 1842. They with four children moved to Clayton County Iowa in 1854.
Since then three children were born. In July 1862 he enlisted in Co B, 21st Iowa Infantry Volunteers. He served faithfully for three years.
After his discharge he came back to his farm at Cox Creek where he resided until 1894. They then
moved to Strawberry Point where they resided seven years. Since 1902 they have resided with their son amongst their old neighbors and here most of his life work was done. And now the great
Commander has mustered him into the ranks of the Celestial army.
He was buried from his son’s home on Nov 11, 1903. The funeral was conducted by his Comrades
of the G.A.R. He leaves a wife of his youth, manhood and old age, and six children to mourn his
death. He was universally loved and honored by all with whom he associated. Enemies “none”;
friends “all”. A large concourse of friends and neighbors followed him with sorrow to the silent tomb.
