From the Pioneer and General History of Geauga County (1853)
John R. Justus, another 1812 veteran, settled in Chardon in 1817, and in Munson in 1829, setting up a tannery south of the old stone bridge.

From the Portrait and Biographical Album of Jo Daviess County, Illinois (1889)
John R. Justice, the father of our subject, was born in Westmoreland County, Pa., the son of a Revolutionary patriot, while he himself, in later years, was a gallant soldier in the War of 1812. He was a pioneer of Ohio, to which State he went from his native State in 1814, and there he engaged in his trade of tanner and currier for several years. He married Abigail Townsley, a native of Westhampton, Mass., and her father likewise was a brave soldier in the revolution. Of that marriage seven children were born, four of whom are now living: Polly (Mrs. Brainard), George, Lucinda (Mrs. Wright), and Sidney.
