Greenway, John Campbell
"John Greenway was born in Huntsville, Alabama, and graduated from Yale University with a degree in engineering. Rising to the upper echelons of the mining industry in Minnesota and Arizona, Greenway took a professional break to join the Rough Riders at the beginning of the Spanish-American War. He met his wife, Isabella, through his friendship with her first husband, Robert H. M. Ferguson, another Rough Rider. After their marriage in 1923, the couple moved to Ajo, Arizona, where John built a house for his wife. They had one son, Jack, before John died after a gall bladder operation." --Cathy Callopy
