1870 Mar 25 Birth to R F Binns and Abby Binns of Woodstock, Michigan, farmer
1870 US Census at Woodstock, Lenawee, Michigan, John Binns age 4 months, born in March
Mentioned in the Memoirs of Lenawee County, Michigan, Vol 2, page 538.
John K. Binns, a successful contractor and builder, now residing near Devil’s Lake, was born in the village of Addison, March 25, 1870. His parents were natives of Lenawee county, the father having been born in 1845, at Addison, and the mothers birthplace was in Rollin township, near the village of Addison, in 1848. During the latter part of the father’s life he was a minister of the Gospel and preached at various places. His early education was to fit him for the profession of the law, but on account of his father’s failing health it was necessary for him to return from Raisin Valley Seminary,where he had entered, and take up the work on the farm. Thus his law studies were neglected, but later in life this preliminary education was utilized to great purpose in his work for the Master who presides not over local courts, but whose judgment over lives is final. When our subject’s father returned from the seminary his attention was engrossed in farm work, and his first Church was at Holland, Mich.,where he preached for two years. From Holland he went to Shiawassee county, and his next Church was at Hickory Corners, northwest of Grand Rapids. His health becoming impaired, he then returned to the old homestead,where his death occurred in 1901.
The homestead farm his parents secured direct from the Government is now the property of his wife. To Reverend and Mrs. Binns were born four children, as follows: John K. is the eldest; Louisa, born in 1876, is now principal of a business college in Kenosha, Wis.; Rose P., born Dec 24, 1880, is the wife of A. B. Branch, a blacksmith of Moscow, in Hillsdale County; and Paul P., born in 1884, married Nellie Slack and is yard foreman of the Lake Shore railroad at Lansing. Our subject attended the schools of Addison and remained at home elected to that office about this time. During this period the trade of carpenter was also acquired by him, and since 1899 his home has been at Devil’s Lake and the occupation of builder has engaged his attention. His residence at that point is modern in every respect and so pleasantly located that our subject has expressed his intention to pass his days there. His building contracts necessitate at times employment of numbers of men and he also engages in general contracting. Ever since his majority was reached, our subject has held public office, seventeen years of that time having been justice of the peace; he also has served as supervisor, and at one time was clerk of Woodstock township, as before stated. In politics he is a Democrat, and an ardent worker for that party. On Oct. 21, 1894, was celebrated his union with Miss Hattie Terry, of Woodstock township, who was born May 21, 1873, daughter of Hiram and Louisa ‏(Cary)‏ Terry, the former a native of New York state, and the mother, of Michigan. Hiram Cary’s father was one of the early settlers of this county, and owned a farm near Devil’s Lake, where he lived till the time of his retirement to the city of Jackson, and since the death of his wife he has made his home with a son in Morley, Mich. He is now in his ninety-first year. Mrs. Binns’ father was also a farmer, but is now living a retired life near Devil’s Lake, conveniently near the residence of our subject. To Mr. and Mrs. Binns three children have been born, namely: Glenn, born Nov. 23, 1895 ; George, born March 10, 1897; and Ruhl, born March17, 1898; all living at home with their parents.
