Johnson Miles Williams

Obitaury of J. D. Johnson, Atlanta, Texas.

On the 21st of December, 1914, the death angel removed from our midst our beloved Commander, J. D. Johnson, who had served us faithfully many years. Comrade Johnson came to Texas with his parents in the fifties and settled near Cusseta, Cass County, on a farm. When his country called, he answered, enlisting in Company I, 32d Texas Cavalry. After the battle of Elk Horn, Ark., his regiment was dismounted and attached to an infantry Brigade at Corinth, Miss., and remained with that command to the surrender.

After the war, Comrade Johnson moved to Atlanta, Tex., and engaged in the mercantile business. He was a successful merchant, a good citizen, a Christian gentleman. He was elected Commander of Stonewall Jackson Camp, No. 91, U. C. V., of Atlanta, Tex., and served as such for more than ten years, being reelected every year.

Comrade Johnson is survived by his wife, who for so many years shared his fortuness, rearing a large family of children, and to her and her children the heartfelt sympathy of the members of Stonewall Jackson Camp was extended.

[J. H. Williams, A. Miles, committee for Stonewall Jackson Camp.]
