    Notes 
    • According to his Journal which was written in a psalm book John stowed away on a cattle ship when he was 16.

      pp Judy M Morey
      This information came directly from his personal psalm
      book that he brought over from England. The book is not much more and a 4x5
      text. The writing is John's where he documented his information.

    3. [S233] Information provided by Judy M Moray, ( Judy M Moray;).
      Judy writes:
      I got John Bolstridges birth date from a journal that he wrote that my aunt has in her posession. He mentions Ratcliffe Culey in his journal. The journal I am told is a book from the church.

      John settled in Sutton, Quebec, Canada at the age of 16. He was a stowaway
      on a cattle ship as I said. My grandmother used to say that he went back to
      England at one time and found all his family gone. We interpreted it to mean
      they were all dead. John died on July 8, 1952 in Sutton, Quebec, Canada and
      is buried there.
