John Herring Wetherington enlisted in the Civil War on June 30, 1862 as a private and became company cook. The nearest he came to a Yankee bullet was when the handle of a pail of food he was carrying was shot in two. When the War was over, he returned to Tuscarora, and married Siddie Daugherty. They reared their family on land his father had been granted.
