Obituary - Death of Mrs. P. P. Johnson -
Died at her home in Toulon, March 24, 1893. Mrs. Jane Brown Johnson
Jane Brown Johnson was born April 4, 1826, in Ross county, Ohio, and departed this life March 24, 1893, at her home, in Toulon.
She was married to P. P. Johnson, August 7, 1845, in Fayette county, Ohio, Rev. John W. Kelley performing the ceremony. To them were born nine children, of whom eight are now living: Elizabeth M., Mary Ella, Augusta Belle, Plessie, Peter A., Roswell M., Lyman L., and Dr. A. L. Johnson. They came to Stark county in 1854, and settled where John Martin now lives. She was converted and became a member of the M. E. Church early in life and has been a firm believer in the holy doctrines of Christianity. She was a devoted companion and an affectionate mother. Her life was so adorned with Christian virtues that all who knew her say that she was an excellent lady. As the wise man said, "Her husband and children arise to say of her, she was a blessed woman." She has passed from this lower sphere of life, clothed with morality, to a "house not made with hands, eternal of the heavens, and is clothed upon with immortality, having joined the company of those gone before."
