John Downing married Susannah Ann Ellis on 19 February 1770 in Cumberland County, Ohio. John Downing left a will in 1823 in Mason County, Kentucky. He was buried in January 1826 in the Downing farm, Mason County, Kentucky. He died on 17 January 1826 in Mason County, at age 76. The following is from Joe Downing ( long time Downing researcher ) We have more definite dates on John Downing and his family because his daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Ellis Downing ( wife of son Reason ) had a family Bible completed in the mid 1800's. John married Susannah Ellis 19 February 1770, probably in cumberland Co PA. She was born 8 September 1750 and the Bible shows her as the daughter of Ellis Ellis and his wife Nancy. If so, she would have been the sister of Nancy Ellis who married brother Timothy Downing and brother of Isaac Ellis who married Nancy Ann Downing. The Downing family was in Western Pennsylvania near Redstone Old Fort, Brownsville, PA in the early 1770s. John appears in the Ohio County Virginia Court Records for that area on 7 September 1778, he and Isaac Ellis being examined and found not guilty of murder. This was in an area claimed by both Virginia and Pennsylvania. John appears on the Washington County PA tax lists starting in 1781. (PA Archives, Series 3, Vol 22, p741 ). His brother's James and Timothy are on the same lists. He appears on subsequent tax lists until he leaves PA in 1789. He served in the REV War in the Washington Co Militia. On 2 February 1787 a warrant for 400 acres was granted John Downing at Philadelphia. In 1788 he was appointed a supervisor of roads in Hopewell Twp a task he would also perform somewhat later in Mason County Kentucky. The first land transaction recorded in Mason County is a purchase of 370 acres from William Wood on Lawrence Creek. A later purchase was made of 78 acres on the Ohio River from Abraham Bowman. John Downing died 17 January 1826 and his will, written 28 October 1819, was probated in February Court 1826. Susannah Ellis Downing died 6 April 1815. It is believed that both are buried in un-marked graves in the family cemetery on Slack Pike.
