    John Hollinshead was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Jnuary 6, 1798. He went first to Canada from his native city, and came to Clyde, Whiteside county, in June, 1839. Soon afterwards he purchased land under the blufffs in Ustick township, and settled there, living upon his farm until he died and on which he lies buried. During his residence in Canada, he participated in the Patriot War, and true to the land of his birth, was an ardent patriot. At one time during that war he had charge of a large number of guns, and quite an amount of ammunition, which the Loyalists determined to capture, but owing to his shrewd management both were saved to the Patriot force. His wife was of the Rush family of Pennsylvania, her uncle being the celebrated Richard Rush, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The childrend of this marriage were, Joshua, born September 7, 1827; Julia Ann, May 19, 1829; Jacob W., August 22, 1831; Daniel, February 7, 1834; Lydia, January 21, 1837; Mary, July 21, 1839; Charles, January 27, 1842, and Emily, September 19, 1843.

    His family was Quaker and thus I wonder about his participation in the Patriot War.
