Although the family moved around quite a lot, they finally settled on a farm in Fargo in 1900. When they first arrived in Oklahoma, they stayed in the barracks at Fort Supply, then moved onto the land that John had acquired. Many of John and Rebecca's descendants still live in Ellis, Beaver, Woodward and Harper Counties. One of their great-granddaughters was born on the 100th anniversary of John's birth. In honer of that, her parents named her after Rebecca.
