JOHN G FELLER, YOUNG CITIZEN AND VET
Richard Baldwin Cook
John G Feller, young citizen and vet
Of 1812, then his homestead he'd fix,
In Shenandoah, but John G'd not get
A land grant like the vets of '76.
Not social, yet a joiner was John G,
In iron works, scattered in the Valley round.
Formed wood molds for hot iron poured carefully.
Such toil for food and shelter, John G found.
G after John may not a lone G be.
Gefeller got quick shortened by the clerk.
No matter how recalled in history.
John recalled down his line for clever work.
Drawn South, German colonials in PA,
They're found in Shenandoah to this day.
