IL and a son turned around to check on his father. He found out that indeed, John had taken off as he said he would and spent the night at a relatives house. The next day, with money in hand continued on his journey but never made it. Everyone believed that he was waylaid along the road, his money taken and his body moved into the vegetation, never to be found. Records indicate otherwise and that he headed for AL.
