Stories

It appears that John and Lucinda had no children. The following is from the 1878 history of Livingston County: "JOHN A. FELLOWS, abstract and loan agent, Pontiac; was born in Tompkins Co., N. Y., Oct. 14, 1831 ; when he was 12 years of age, his parents removed to Walworth Co., Wis. ; after their death he came to Livingston Co., to reside with his uncle, Isaac Burgit, one of the early settlers of Avoca Tp. ; after one year, he came to Pontiac and remained about two years, and then returned to Wisconsin; two years later, he came again to Pontiac, which place has been his permanent home ever since; up to the breaking out of the war he was engaged in clerking. In 1862, he enlisted in Co. G, 129th I. V. I., and served until the close of the war. On his return he was appointed Postmaster, and entered the drug business with James A. Caldwell, which he continued about thir- teen months, and then engaged in the agricultural implement business; he was appointed Deputy Circuit Clerk Jan. 1, 1869, and at the end of four years was elected Circuit Clerk. During his term of office, he formed a partnership with R. Olney, Esq., in the abstract business, which still continues. He was married April 10, 1862, to Miss Lucinda H Hollingsworth, of Pontiac; she was born in Ohio, in Oct., 1831."
