    In 1794 (Livingston County History) he apparently came with his son-in-law to Geneseo (then Ontario County, New York) making the journey in wagons. At this time Geneseo was a wilderness with only a few white settlers. He selected a tract of land near the village known as Lakeville, and assisted in organizing the First Presbyterian church in the town of Geneseo, of which he was appointed one of the Elders. He resided near Lakeville but a few years, then sold his land and bought for four dollars a tract of 100 acres in the southern part of the town. A hewed log house and a few acres of cleared land constituted his available estate. Here he resided till his death in about 1812. A few years before his death, John's younger brother, George, and his family came to Groveland.

    1790 census-Northumberland Co.,PA-"John Duart" - 2 males>16, 0 males <16, 3 females. ...living next to Widow Clemons, Hugh Lemond, Peter Smith, and near all the (Haynes)Haines's(Joseph, Jonathan, John, James, and David)

    1800 census-Geneseo,Ontario Co.,NY-"John Ewert" - 1 male 16-25, 1 male 26-44, 1 female<10, 1 female 16-25. (NOTE: the numbers appear to be off by one column - if so it should be - 1 male 26-44(Samuel), 1 male 45+(John), 1 female 26-44(?) --- this leaves open that Mary may not have come to Geneseo and is buried in PA and the female 26-44 is a daughter of John or second wife) ...living next to Benjamin Squires, Thomas Austin, John Hutchin (only 48 heads of household in the town of Geneseo in 1800)
