I do not know who frrst settled and occupied Johnsrun. It was once owned by the Williamses, who lived there; it was held by various persons on hire until 1793, when it was bought by a Frenchman, who soon abandoned it, and it was purchased by Capt. John Palmer. It is now the residence of his grandson,Warren Palmer.
