Just read your post. John Coons was also my gggrandfather.
According to our research, he was married twice to Hannah Blakley and also to Mary Ruepert. My name is Gwen Finley, daughter of Nelson Coons & Audrey Preston, Granddaughter of Henry Coons & Annie Fawcett, Greatgranddaughter of James Coons & Margaret Nelson. I am really stuck on John Coons. We are in Peterborough On. area. I would like to know what information you have on John & Wives. I can also fill you in on all names etc. on my side? Looking froward to a reply. I would really like to know info. as far back as to who came from Germany.
