Maybe a stretch...
My ancestor: Johann Hinrich Bockelman (a great, great, great uncle) married Anna Catherina Margareta Rohrs. They were both born in Visselhovede, Hannover, Germany. Johann was born July 08, 1829 while Anna was born June 02, 1835. They immigrated to the US in 1869. Johann died January 14, 1912 while Anna died March 19, 1910. Not aware of any children. The Bockelmans settled in Ridgeville and the Napoleon area.
Wonder if your John is related to Anna; maybe she was a sister of John's father?
The Ridgeville connection is probably significant!
