John C.

The subject of this sketch came to Parke Co. with his parents in 1844 and in 1854 he was married to Mary J. WATSON daughter of Richard & Sarah (BURFORD) Watson, both natives of Shelby Co, Ky. Her parents died shortly after coming to Parke Co; her father in 1837, age 38 years and her mother in 1839 aged 30 years. Mr. & Mrs. JC Reddish have 4 children: Clayborn W, husband of Eva C. Sutton, Lizzie B, Cora A and Effie J. They are members of the Missionary Baptist Church at Goshen, Washington Twp. He lost two brothers in the late war. During the war he was ready at any time to defend the laws and institutions of the country. In politics he is a Republican. In practical business life he is a success.
