JEFFERSON COUNTY IL 
OBITUARIES

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.
