BIOGRAPHY

E. O. AND JOHN JOHNSON

In Company D there were eight pairs of brothers; the Johnson boys were one. Both good soldiers, always well, marched with the regiment to Gettysburg, fought through the battle and returned unharmed except a slight wound received by John. John went West soon after the war, last heard of in Utah, more than thirty years ago. Eben O. remained here, succeeded to his father's farm, was prominent in town affairs many years. He made many friends. He died Jan. 14, 1903.
