John was born in 1876, the son of John Patrick McGinnis and Johanna Mountain McGinnis, who were both from Ireland. He was a bugler during the Spanish American War in Company H, 5th Ohio Vol. Infantry and additional units. He noted in the family bible that he first received his pension on Dec 3, 1928. John McGinnis met his future bride, Jennie Fenner, in a diner in Massachusetts. He married her on Aug 28, 1916. The marriage was "blessed" by Father Engstrom of St. Joseph's in North Brookfield, MA. on June 20, 1920. (Blessed means the marriage was recognized by the Catholic Church.) After living in Oxford, MA, and the Brookfields, they moved to CT and then settled down in Youngstown, OH. Their children were: Hazel, Elizabeth, Sara, James Edward, Charles Francis, Harold E and John L McGinnis.

OBIT: Mrs. Johanna McGinnis, the widow of John McGinnis and a most estimable Christian woman, died in the family home, 612 Thomas Street. An illness from blood poisoning, extending over a period of 11 days, prefaced the end. Prior to that time Mrs. McGinnis was an unusually robust, strong woman. From her infancy Mrs. McGinnis has lived in Youngstown and both as a girl and a woman had the sincerest regard and respect of everyone who knew her. She was a member of St. Columba's church since her babyhood and was loyal to its every precept. As a neighbor she was generous and thoughtful, and as a wife and mother, everything that could be wished for --faithful and indulgent. The death of her husband occurred three months ago --a fact which adds to the grief of the nearly distracted children. They are Mrs. Thomas Clark, Mrs. John Reilly, Mrs. Martin Lyden, Miss Hannah, John J and William E McGinnis.

Ida is the daughter of Luther Fenner and Lucy Ida Bitgood, and the sister of Henry Eugene Fenner, who is buried in the same cemetery. She was probably born in southeastern Conn. Ida can be found on the 1860 census for Voluntown, the 1880 census for Leicester and the 1900 census for Spencer. Ida married Charles L Bugbee, who was born in 1864. They had the following children: Mary L who was born and died in 1888, Ella M who was born in 1888 and died at the age of ten, another daughter named Ella Eveline who died at thirteen from typhoid fever in Webster, Everett who lived from 1890 to 1914, and Ralph who lived from 1892 to 1975. The date and place of Ida's death is unknown but probably occured after 1935 because her granddaughter remembers her.

EEverett was the son of Charles and Lucy Ida Fenner Bugbee. He was disabled at some point in his life and lived to the age of twenty-four. He appears on the 1900 census for Spencer and the 1910 census for Lancaster, MA. In 1910 he is listed as being at home, rather than as a worker.
