When Mrs. March went to Washington to visit sick Mr. March, John accompanied her and stayed there while she returned home to take care of Beth. John fell in love with the eldest March girl, Meg and married her after the war- after much “begging” and convincing he’d be a good husband to her. The couple moved into a little house, where their three children were born: the twins' Daisy and Demi and later Josie. He died in the book Little Men. He was mentioned once in Jo’s boys.
