John F Jewell History

Fulton County, Illinois

John F Jewell, son of Enos and Elizabeth Clark Jewell was the husband of Julia Smith. They were the parents of the following children, namely: William S., Ida, wife of Harry B. Stoge, of Lewistown, Ill.; Josephine, wife of Harry Mathews, of Canton, Ill., and Elizabeth, Clara and Minnie, who dwell under the parental roof. John F. Jewell was a member of the Thirty-second Regiment, Illinois Volunteer Infantry, during the Civil War, and took part in Sherman’s March to the Sea. In the battle of Atlanta he was struck in the left shoulder by a ball, which glanced downward. On account of the location of the ball the surgeon declined to undertake its extraction, and for twenty long years he carried it in his body, causing him at times great suffering. The ball gradually worked its way to his side and made its exit under the arm. He followed farming until he came to Lewistown in 1893, when the effects of this wound, resulting in a general impairment of his health, compelled him to retire from active life. Enos Jewell, the father of John F., was one of the pioneers of Fulton County and a prominent figure in the early history of Lewistown
