      His parents, Robert and Margaret Murray Goheen were among the pioneer settlers in the Glades, occupying a farm near the village of Rock Springs. It was there John Bailey Goheen was born September 20th 1845. He had lived to the ripe age of 87 years, 3 months and 24 days. Before he had attained his majority the Civil War was on and he enlisted for service and proved a good soldier. On his return home he worked on the farm until his marriage in 1869 when he engaged in farming for himself in "The Loop." Fifty eight years ago he moved to the farm near Baileyville, which he later purchased and where he spent the balance of his life. His most striking characteristics were his strict integrity and kind brotherly feeling for his fellow man. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church from boyhood and for many years had been a trustee. He was a member of the G.A.R. and for a long period of years had been a member of the board of Directors of the Farmer's Mutual Fire Insurance CO.
