VILLAGE RECORD, Chester county, February 19, 1834: 'Death Notice. Hunt Downing an old and respectable inhabitant of the Great Valley, died at his residence in West Whiteland on Friday last. He had been much in active life; a public house keeper, an extensive Stage Proprietor, and a Director of the Bank of Chester county, until about two years since, when infirmities brought on by increasing age, induced him very wisely to resign his situation as Director, and lessen hi business responsibilities. The companieon of his early life, and his tender solace under the weight of affliction, was taken from him about two months since; for some time previous to which he was afflicted with a paralysis, which unfitted him for active life. He has gone to bourne whence no traveller return - at a ripe old age - and the recollections of his kindness and his usefulness will be pleasing to his family and numerous friends.1,2,3'

     John Downing
John Downing was born in Lancaster County, PA, about 1783. He was raised in a strict Quaker environment, and sometimes after 1788 his parents left Lancaster county, later living in Frederick County, VA. In 1807 he was married to Abigail White, daughter of Deborah Lee White and granddaughter of Anthony and Abigail Lee, who were also Quakers. John and Abigail 'married contrary to discipline' and were dismissed from the Quaker religion of their childhood. After their marriage, John and Abigail Downing farmed in Berkely county, VA, where their ten children were born. Berkeley county was a part of Virginia at the time, but was separated into West Virginia when West Virginia was created as a state in 1862. Berkeley county, WV, adjoins Frederick county, VA. In 1831 the family left Berkeley county, moved to Clark county, Ohio, for a brief period, moved to Elkhart county, Indiana, for a period, then to Henry county, Iowa. by 1840 the family was settled in Iowa. The family is listed there in the 1840 census. Before his death, John and his family moved south into the next county, Jefferson, where at least four of his sons had acquired land and were farmers. A listing of the original land entries for Jefferson county, Iowa, shows the lands acquired by John Downing's sons. It must have been discouraging to the father, William, to see his children deserting their Quaker religion. Over the years, John, Mary, and Phoebe were all dismissed from the membership for marrying 'contrary to discipline'. Sarah was called before the meeting to answer testimony against her.1
