McCourtie, John, is the son of one of the sturdy pioneers of Butler, bearing the same name, who cleared the homestead where our subject now resides, and died there in 1842 at the early age of thirty nine years. Of his two sons, John and William, the latter is engaged in real estate and milling business at Kalamazoo, Mich., and John, of whom we write, is one of the representative farmers of this section, and highly esteemed by all who know him. His wife is Melissa, daughter of Eleazer Smith, who was also a man of note in the early days of Butler. They were married August 28, 1853, and have two children: Jennie, born June 10, 1870, and Smith, born December 1, 1859, and who married Orpha Andrews, of Spring Lake.
