  • Notes 

    • From the book "Uniting of the Masseys and the Jarrells", page 228
      Johnny was the first child born to John D. and Cynthia Massey while they lived on Fox Creek in Colorado. One of their closest neighbors after the family moved to Manassa, was the Dempsey family. One of the Dempsey boys was a little younger than John, named William Harrison Dempsey. He used to fight Johnny and always won. William later changed his name to 'Jack Dempsey' and went on to become the world's heavyweight champion.

      After Johnny's family moved to Utah...
