- Death came suddenly and unexpectedly at age 45 when he died "of fever from infection caught by taking shipwrecked men into his house, one of them being under the disease at the time." The official death register states he was living at Ruesdale of Farr at the time, a dwelling about 300 feet south of Touriehouse. John's widow lived at both Ruesdale and Touriehouse another 44 years, dying at the latter in 1891.
