JEFFERSON COUNTY IL
Mrs. Lucretia H. JOHNSON, whose death was mentioned yesterday, was born
May 7, 1812, in Sumner county, Tenn. At the age of 14 years she accompanied
her parents to this county. While a very young girl she professed faith in her Savior
and ever after lived a thoroughly consecrated Christian life. In 1837 she was united
in marriage with W.F. Johnson, who still survives her. Eight children, seven of whom
are still living, blessed this union, viz. John F., who died at one year of age, Mrs. Martha
Burger, Mrs. P. C. Bates, J. T. Johnson, Mrs. D. J. Mcvey, W. H. Johnson, Geo.
D. Johnson and Mary C. Johnson. With the exception of Mrs. Mcvey who resides near
Lamar, Colorado, all of the children reside in this county. The deceased was a sister of
Mr. Thos. H. Hobbs of this city. Her death resulted from the effects of a fall last August
in which her hip was broken, and from the effects of which it was impossible to recover.
She was a good woman, loved and esteemed by a wide circle of acquaintances and had
lived to the good ripe age of 82 years.
The funeral occurred this forenoon at 11 o'clock, Elder J.D. Flint conducting the services
with interment at Hopewell Cemetery.
