Excerpts from "Centennial History of Washington County, Indiana, Its People,
Industries, and Institutions", by Warder W. Stevens, published in 1916 by B.F.
Bown & Company, Inc. Indianapolis, Indiana.
"John Redus was but a child when his parents, Aaron Redus and wife, came with
their family from Virgina to this county, and he grew to manhood on the farm
on which they settled, about three miles east of Livonia, adjoing the Wright
farm on the east, and there he married Hulda Wright, who was born there,
daughter of Asa and Phoebe Wright...
John Redus had been married twice before his marriage to Hulda Wright, his
children by his previous unions being Mary... Sarah..., and Samuel. To his
union with Hulda Wright, three children were born, of whom John M. ... the
others being Phoebe, living in Oklahoma, widow of Walter A. Wibble, and Howard
Malcolm, who died at the age of ten years. Following his marriage, John Redus
moved to what is now known as the Carter farm, just north of the Presbyterian
Church at Livonia, and it was there that John M. was born. In the fall of
1860 John Redus sold his farm at Livonia, his wife having died in 1858, and
moved to the state of Kansas, where he bought a farm of two hundred acres,
near Iola, Allen County, paying for the same two dollars an acre, and there he
died in the spring of 1862."
