This page is for John Vail, son of James Vail and Sarah Copus, husband of Frances Kissling, and father of John Charles Vail.

Categories: James Vail Sarah Copus John Vail John JohnVail Vail FullNames

Argument:

Capt. John Vail may have been named John Charles Vail, as his granddaughter Sarah Elizabeth attests in the death certificate of her father John Charles Vail. No instance of either father or son using "Sr." or "Jr." has been found, the father being called "John" and the son being called "Charles" in most instances.

John's surname is transcribed "Veil" in the 1870 census, which seems to be a fair reading of original.

John Vail, Macon Co. Mo (1884)

CAPT. JOHN VAIL.
(Farmer and Stock-raiser).

Capt. John Vail is a well-known and wealthy farmer and stock-raiser of section 14, Callao township. Mr. Vail's grandfather on his mother's side, James Copus, was one of the seven pioneers who settled in Ohio, six of whom were killed by the Indians. He was born March 8, 1818, in Richland county, Ohio. His father, James Vail, was a native of New Jersey, and his mother, Sarah Copus, of Pennsylvania. He has two sisters and one brother living. His father died, leaving John at the age of seven and a half years, and Mrs. Vail, now 84 years old, still residing in Ohio. After receiving the advantage of a good common-school education, he remained in Ohio until 1860, when he removed to Macon county. Mo., locating just north of Macon, following the avocation of a farmer and stock-raiser in Lyda township. In October, 1882, he came to his present residence in Callao township, possessing 120 acres of home farm and 60 acres in Jackson township. The improvements in the former are more than the average of the county. During the late war he was captain of Co. H, Forty-second Missouri infantry volunteers. He is a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and has, at various times, filled a number of important county positions. He married, April 29, 1840, Miss Fanny Kisling, of Pennsylvania, by whom he has 10 children : Joseph F., Elizabeth, Sarah, Ellen, Samantha, Henry, Cetta, John C, William, Fanny and Cyrus, who died November 21, 1849.
