10.  Anon.  1882.  History of Muskegon County, Michigan.  H.R. Page & Co., Chicago (online at the Muskegon County MIGenWeb site; courtesy of Joyce VanderVere):
John G. Rasey was born in Oneida County, N.Y., in 1824.  At twelve years of age he moved to Lawrence County, where he lived twelve years.  Here he married Orrilla Harris, who died in less than two years after marriage.  He next moved into Jefferson County, and after living there twelve of thirteen years removed to the state of Illinois with a family of five children, having been married a second time, and remained there ten years.  He then bought eighty acres of wild land in Holton and settled on it.  He has now ten children.  He taught school for twenty-four years.  Has been School Superintendent for Holton five years and Justice of the Peace two years.
