The records provided by the National Home for Disabled Veterans indicate that John lost his left eye during the war and that his sight was very diminished in his right eye. He was also senile by the time of his admission on November 25, 1901. His residence subsequent to his discharge from the army was Rensselaerville, but he continued on with his life elsewhere and returned to Rensselaerville before he became gravely ill.
