Lt. Julius Johnson,

descendant, submitted by Jane J. Williams.


To my knowledge, Julius Johnson's family did not apply for a pension. The Lunenburg Order Book 21 and Landon C. Bell's book are used as sources.


Veteran of War of 1812:


 Julius Johnson, Lunenburg Co., VA

Lt. of the company of Grenadiers attached to the First Battalion and 73 Regt. of Virginia Militia.


Landon C. Bell, "The Old Free State", Vol. I, (Richmond, VA: The William Byrd Press): 281-285.


p. 284. A letter dated Lunenburg Co., VA, 13 Dec 1813, to His Excellency, James Barbour.

. . . Enclosed is a recommendation of the County Court of Lunenburg made at the last court of a Lieutenant of the Company of Light Infy. attached to the 1st Battn. of the 73 Reg. This Company of Light Infantry is now in requisition at Norfolk attached to the 6th Regiment.

The vacancy in this comp'y was occasioned by the death of Lt. Johnson (who returned home from Norfolk sick)  and has recently died. . . .

The Lieutenant Johnson here referred to was Lt. Julius Johnson and the Company to which he belonged, then stationed at Norfolk, and attached to the 6th Regiment was the Company of Captain Silvanus Ingram.
