      John was born in Maryland about 1776, the year Andrew Jackson, the future
      pre sident, was born. John, known as Stumpy John because he was so short
      and had frostbitten feet, was married to Elizabeth (Betty), daughter of
      George Oller and Prudence Logsdon, in Madison County, April 19, 1792.
      Stumpy John moved to Hardin County, in the area of present Hart County,
      as early as 1802. He liv ed on a road between Cub Run and Houchin's
      Ferry. In the Court Orders of Har din County is this notation, "ordered
      that the road be widened to thirty feet wide from Roundstone Creek to
      John Durbin's on Dog Creek." This road had fi rst been made in 1798 "wide
      enough for a man and a horse."
      About 1812, John and family moved to the area of Cape Girardeau,
      Louisiana (now Missouri), but because of earthquakes and unhealthy
      conditions moved back to Grayson County about 1814. The area to which
      John moved back was in present Edmonson Count y, and probably in the
      Sunfish region. It is believed that Elizabeth died ci rca 1826/27, and in
      1828 John left Kentucky for Illinois.
      According to the H istory of Illinois, John migrated to Illinois in 1828,
      taking his sons John Z ., Josephus, and Leonard. He settled on Bear Creek
      and died there in 1832. Bear Creek became a Durbin settlement in
      Illinois.
      The first real settlement of Bear Creek, Illinois started in 1829.
      Esquire Joseph P. Durbin, Nathania l Painter, and Old Grandfather Durbin
      migrated on one ox wagon and oxen. Old Grandfather Durbin is believed to
      be Joseph Durbin, Sr., Joseph P.'s father.
