John C. Durham was born 28 March 1888 in Mississippi, the son of Thomas and Mary Price Durham. He grew up with seven brothers and sisters: William Lucian, Guy Thomas, Ola Maye, Bryant Eugene, Ruby Elizabeth, Lilian Gertrude and Mary Blanche.
John was a farmer before entering the Navy 22 September 1917. There is little information about his service, but we know he was a fireman on a ship. In the Navy a fireman is a crew member that works in the engine room. They keep up the equipment
that moves the ship. John was discharged 31 June 1919.
John married Johnnie Beatrice Lawrence and they were the parents of nine children: John C., Jr.; Bryant E.; Milton Ray; Thomas Lee; Betty; Juanita; Patricia Ann; Mary Jo and Brenda Sue. He worked for the Missouri Pacific Railroad for 45 plus years before retiring.
John C. Durham, Sr. died in 1967 and was buried in Cogbill Cemetery, Wynne,
