      John was the proprietor of a mercantile store in Knoxville and made business trips to Augusta, Georgia. It was on one of these trips that he met his future wife, Elizabeth Brooks.
      After becoming a true Christian, John kept a Journal extracts of which were published in the Texas Christian Advaocate following his death. In 1809, John went to hear Thomas Trower preach at Wagoner's Church, and following the church service he joined the church. In June 1811, at a quarterly conference held in Middle settlement, Blount County, by Frederick Steer P.E. of Holston District, John received his license to preach. He was ordained a Local Deacon by Bishop Asbury in 1815, and an Elder by Bishop George in 1825.
      John established "White's Chapel", a church in Knoxville built on land contributed by Judge Hugh L. White and whose family contributed large sums for the building. John also established the Macedonian Church near Knoxville.
      In 1826 John was living in Tuscumbia, Alabama, where he stayed for approximately fourteen years. John moved to Texas in 1839 with his wife, three children and his mother, Catherine (King) Haynie.
