Death of Grandma Johnson: Mrs. Sarah Johnson died at the residence of her
son, Dr. A. C. Johnson, in this city this morning at 6 o'clock. Mrs. Johnson
was born February 22, 1815, and had therefore just passed her 78th birthday.
She was a native of Sumner county, Tennessee. When but eleven years of
age she came to Jefferson county, where, on December 4, 1834, she was united
in marriage with John N. Johnson, with whom she lived peacefully and happily
until his death November 26, 1855. Mrs. Johnson joined the Methodist church
at the early age of ten, and ever after lived a patient, earnest christian
life. For a long time she had suffered great bodily pain and death to her
was a welcome messenger. She leaves five children living: A. C., John and
J. D. Johnson, Mrs. D. H. Warren and Mrs. Mary Waters. Two children have
preceded her to the heavenly home. The funeral will occur tomorrow from
the M. E. church at 2 o'clock p.m., with interment at Oakwood cemetery.
