OBITUARIES

Sarah Johnson

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.
