      Caroline Kilday said that her grandmother, Sarah, would not allow any alcohol in the house because John and his brothers had once been playing poker, they were drinking and loosing thier money, in order to stay in the game (and perhaps recover some of teir losses0 they went home and got deeds to property that they owned. Needless to say, they lost. (Years ago I remember being told that the way that John W. got his property holddings was thru a poker game!)
