He married twice. He married Sophia N. Welch BEF 1811. (Sophia N. Welch is #3453.) Sophia was born 17 AUG 1793 in Vermont. Sophia was the daughter of Nathaniel Welch and Lura Dickinson. Sophia died 20 FEB 1848 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 54. Her body was interred FEB 1848 in King Hill Cemetery, Sullivan Town, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. He married ElizabethUnknown(King) AFT 1848. (Elizabeth Unknown (King) is #7196.) Elizabeth was born 1791 in Vermont.

John registered to pay taxes 1816 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Sullivan Township was formed in 1816. It was taken from Covington Township. Its original boundaries included the southern half of Rutland formed in 1829, and the northern part of Ward which was formed in 1852.

John was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. John was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. John and Sophia were 40-50 and 30-40 mrespectively. They had one daughter and one son 15-20, two daughters 10-15, and one under five.

John was listed as the head of a family on the 1840 Census in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. The household of Sophia and John included one female 0-5, one female 10-15, one male 15-20, one male and four females 20-30. Apparently a married child with spouse and infant was living with them, probably George and Martha with infant Mary.

In the Census of 1850, John was listed as a head of household in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. John and Harry were farmers. John's property was worth $2000. Amanda Welch was counted both here and with her brother Uriah's household.

He was listed as a household member of Harry W. King's house in the Census of 1860 in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Harry was a farmer with real property worth $2000 and personal property worth $300. Note: The King line of Sullivan Township is related to Joyce M.

John L. King and Sophia N. Welch had the following children:

2 i. Polly W.2 King (#4878) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. She married Damon Keyes*. (Damon Keyes* is #4879.)

3 ii. Mariah King (#21677).

4 iii. Clara King (#4880) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 1811. She married Enoch Sellard. (Enoch Sellard is #4881.) Enoch was born 1805. Enoch was the son of Stephen DeWolf Sellard and Polly Spencer*. Bradford COunty History confirms parentage of C.S. and Ichabod. Enoch's parentage is by assumption. He married a sister of Enoch's wife.

Her body was interred JAN 1877 in Mainesburg Cemetery, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Minnie WELCH (Seymour) work says Luzetta Gray is wife and gives no furher information. 1850 Sullivan Township Census gives wife as Martha. It was typical then for people to interchange first and middle names which sometimes tricks us into thinking there were two people when there was only one.

6 v. Eunice W. King (#4882) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 1821. Eunice died 1858 at age 37. Her body was interred 1858 in Stull Cemetery, Union Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. She married John McNett. (John McNett is #4883.)
