JOHN G. F. CELLAR, farming; P.O. Powell; John was born in this township Dec. 15 1837; son of John T. and Lucy (Wilson) Cellar.  John was born on the homestead now occupied by his sister, where he lived until the year previou to his marriage, when he built him a house just south of the homestead, and made preparations for the reception of his prospective wife, and, March 1, 1875, was joined by matrimony to Naomi Luke born in this county Feb. 22, 1856; she is a daughter of John Luke, who married Lucy Karns.  Mr. and Mrs. Cellar have one child Mary W. born Nov. 15, 1876.  He has 124 acres of land.  They are both members of the Presbyterian Church.  He was in the 100-days service in Co. K, 145th O.N.G., and returned home in August, 1864, and since has been engaged in farming pursuits.

Primary records support a birth year of 1835 for John, and his father was John Flanigan CELLAR, not "John T. CELLAR."  County marriage records have our subjects married in 1876, not 1875.  Our subjects had three children, not one, but it's obvious this bio was written before the second and third children were born.  The 1900 Census indicates daughter, Mary, was born in September, not November.  "O.N.G." = Ohio National Guard, more commonly known as the "O.V.I.," Ohio Volunteer Infantry.

Note that if one is age 28 in 1864, you were born in 1835 or 1836.  John G.F.'s first cousin, John CELLAR, also enlisted and mustered out on the same dates and in the same unit, with the rank of Captain.
