Upon the death of his parents, John became head of the family. This is reflected in the 1900 US Census for La Grue precinct, Arkansas County, Arkansas. He is listed as single, head of household for that census. Appearing in the same household are his siblings: Emma (Emily), Minnie, Wallie (William), and Elsie. A nephew, Ira Perry, also is listed in the household.

I have been unable to locate this family in the 1920 US Census.
