John Kingery - Unknown   
John Kingery was born on October 4, 1840 in what is now Jewett, Illinois. He was the son of David and Mary Kingery.

John Kingery, when the war of the rebellion broke out, was a young man and believing it to be his duty to defend the old flag, on the 22nd day of August, 1862, volunteered for three years or during the war. He was mustered into the service September 8th, 1862, and was mustered out July 29th, 1865. He was a member of Co. D, 97th Reg. III Vol. Inft. He was with Sherman in that memorable march to the sea and during the time he was in the service he participated in some of the fiercest and bloodiest conflicts of that war and yet he came through it all without a scratch or wound, but with his constitutional powers shattered so that he never was a healthy man. In a few years the symptoms of that disease of which he died--consumption--began to develop.

At the close of the Civil War, he, like many others, settled down to civil life and engaged in the tilling of the soil and stock raising, which business he continued as long as he was able to do anything.

On the 8th of March, 1867, he was married to Miss Lena A. Mumper and to this union was born 13 children, 8 sons and5 daughters, 4 of these dying in infancy. Two of them--Charles and Eva--died just as they were budding into man and womanhood. His companion of life died May 22nd, 1892, leaving a babe just six weeks old, together with small children, but Mr. Kingery, with a father's love, and with that indomitable perseverance for which he was noted, kept those children all together and had the happy satisfaction of seeing them all grow to man and womanhood under his watchful care before his death, on August 25th, 1907.
