Williston, Feb. 12. - Thomas Johnson died in Williston Feb. 4, aged 82 years. The funeral was held Feb. 7th at St. Mary's Cathedral, Burlington. Rev. P. J. Barrett officiated. The bearers were J. E. Burke, G. B. Paul, Herald Stevens, P. H. Corley, Frank Forbes and C. E. Crowley.

Thomas Johnson was born in County Tryon, town of Mullin, Ireland, in March, 1827. In 1837 he came with his parents, Edward John and Susan (McKenna) Johnson to America and settled in Williston. In early manhood he went West and lived many years in Minnesota and Ohio. Returning to Vermont he enlisted October 10, 1862, in the service of the United States as a private in Co., F, 13th Regt. Vermont Vol. Infantry. After the close of the war he returned to Burlington and was a member of Stannard Post. The declining years of his life were spent at the home of his sister, the late Mrs. Maurice Sullivan of Williston, where he so endeared himself to nieces and nephews that his death is to them a great bereavement. Mr. Johnson will be sadly missed by a wide circle. A noble soul has gone from our midst and many of us are blessed in having known him. All his many friends mourn his death and tender their heartfelt sympathy to his relatives.
