Forest and Tree

Wise is the person who sees the forest
From its grandeur inspiration glean.
Wiser still the person who sees the tree;
When the tree is what needs seen.

May we then in living life
Be it pleasure, pain, or strife
Steadily that wisdom learn
Their differentially discern.

Moses Johnson

A Family Narrative by Carmen Johnson

(Participant 132137)

 

Anyone with the last name of Johnson has a treacherous and cumbersome path to follow when they are attempting to trace their genealogical line back very far.  The sheer numbers are daunting and the frustrating twists and turns can be very discouraging.  As a boy, my father heard a limited amount about his father’s family.  At one point, he had seen a family tree that listed a connection to President Andrew Johnson.  He wasn’t sure what the connection was – but he knew that he had seen the information from an elderly cousin’s research.

When my mother got the information on my grandfather’s family in the early 1970’s, he didn’t know where the connection was but was able to give my mother a fairly complete picture of his father’s immediate family.  From that genealogy, we knew that Washington Abraham Johnson had two brothers and a sister and was the son of an “Unknown Johnson” and Nancy Mayfield.  We weren’t really sure how his family got from NC to TN and then to IA and ND.  The only timeline we were real sure about was my father’s family coming to ID in 1944.

When my mother and I began our research in the late 1990’s, we wanted to find out who the unknown Johnson was.  Both of us began emailing and leaving postings at various locations until a kind gentleman sent us a marriage record for Moses Johnson and Nancy Mayfield.  From that point, we were able to trace the family to Carter Co., TN.

Figure 1:  Marriage Record for Moses Johnson and Nancy Mayfield

Through the information that my mother had from her father-in-law, we knew that Moses and Nancy had at least four children:  Henderson William Johnson b. 2 May 1817 Greensboro, Guilford Co., NC, Washington Abraham Johnson b. 25 Oct 1819, Martha A. Johnson b. abt 1823 and then Nicholas Moses Johnson b. 1828.  All the children were born in North Carolina probably around Guildford Co., NC.  We later learned of another child by the name of Nancy Jane Emily Johnson b. 27 Aug 1827.  In 1840, Moses and his family were recorded in Guilford Co., NC.  His oldest daughter, Martha, had married Green Walker the previous year.  By 1844, the Johnson family is in Carter Co., TN – for that is where Henderson William Johnson marries Jane Humphreys.   In 1850, Moses and his family are recorded at 3rd Civil District, Carter Co., TN, Pg.170 #11.  (Only son Nicholas and wife Nancy are with him – Washington is in the neighboring county of Jefferson Co., TN – probably near New Market.)  Moses bought land near what is today the Union Chapel Church near Hampton, TN.  He was buried in a graveled area just across the street from the church probably with wife Nancy Mayfield who died sometime between 1850-1855.  Moses remarried on 3 Oct 1855 to Rachel McInturff.  I am fairly sure that is her married name and I do not know what happened to her after Moses Johnson’s death in 1873.

After getting some of the basic data put down through census research and correspondence with various family members, Mom and I started looking for the Pres. Andrew Johnson connection that Dad was so sure of.   We began by trying to find anything and everything we could on Andrew

Johnson’s background and placing queries in many locations.  You will find my postings all over the internet requesting information.  We finally received a copy of an article written by Hugh B. Johnston discussing Andrew Johnson’s family.  Within this document was the following letter (We have a copy of the original thanks to a descendant of Henderson Johnson – but it is very difficult to read – this is an exact transcription):

From Henderson W. Johnson

State of Iowa, Jasper County

February 8, 1861

Dear Cousin Andrew Johnson

Henderson W. Johnson

Hugh B. Johnston surmised that Moses was Andrew’s uncle and that therefore Henderson, Washington, and Nicholas were his cousins.  He also believed there was another connection to another Moses Johnson in Carter Co., TN – but there is no connection as far as I know.   Within the text of this letter is enough clues to determine the familial relationship.  Henderson William Johnson had left Carter Co., TN probably around 1854.  His twin sons were born there and both died within a year and are buried at Sams Cemetery, Poweshiek Twp., Jasper Co., IA.  By this point, Washington Abraham Johnson was married to Mary Ann Smith and lived in New Market, Jefferson Co., TN and had three children – youngest (Martha) had died young.   Nicholas Moses Johnson was married to Mary Ann Jenkins and had 4 children.  Martha and her husband, Grenville Walker were also living in Carter Co., TN and had 5 children as well.  Nancy Jane Emily Johnson and her husband, Benjamin Franklin Ballard had traveled from Guilford Co., NC to Indiana.  By 1870, they are living near Henderson Johnson in Jasper Co., IA.  This letter clearly states the relationship of Henderson to Andrew by referring to him as “Cousin Andrew” and also referring to “Aunt Mary!”  This letter was in the papers of Pres. Andrew Johnson in his library.

After we had surmised that there was indeed a relationship, it was now time to try and figure out what we could about Andrew’s ancestry.  The research out there is very murky.  Everyone agrees that Andrew’s father was Jacob….after that, things get a bit murky.  Here are the siblings we are fairly sure of:

John b. 1772 NC d. abt 1828, St. Mark’s District, Wake Co., NC m. to Martha Andrews on 20 Sep 1791 in Wake Co., NC. Children are:

·         Sallie m. John Morgan

·         Berry b. 4 Apr 1794 NC d. 10 Oct 1855 Bridgeport, Jackson Co., AL m.  Lucy Blalock

·         Gilly Johnson b. 1796 NC d. 5 May 1860 m. John Depo

·         Mary Ann Johnson b. abt 1808 m. John Singletary

·         William Patterson Johnson, Sr. b. 10 Oct 1804 Raleigh, Wake Co., NC d. 24 Oct 1865 Columbia, Brazoria Co., TN m. Sarah G. McDonogh

·         Elizabeth Johnson 14 Mar 1806 NC d. bef 1810

·         Andrew Johnson b. 29 Dec 1808 Raleigh, Wake Co., NC d. 31 Jul 1875 Stoney Creek, Carter Co., TN

Moses Johnson (See line above – this is my family)

Aaron Johnson b. 1790-1800 NC d. ?  m. Betsy Ragan 17 Aug 1816

·         James Madison Johnson b. abt 1819 d. abt 28 May 1841 Wake Co., NC

This last son of Aaron Johnson is when things get a little interesting.  Evidently Andrew, his brother William and his cousins – presumably the sons of Jesse, ran around wild in Raleigh in the late 1810’s.  William and Andrew were both apprenticed to a tailor and both ran away from the tailor.  Mary, Andrew’s mother, got her sons out of NC and headed to TN which is where the family settled.  During my research, I wondered why my ancestor Moses left NC.  My best guess lay in the circumstances of his brother’s son James Madison Johnson.  James was hung for murder in Raleigh, NC in 1841.  I’ve also read that Aaron was jailed for selling liquor to an Indian.  I believe that Moses and his family decided to head to TN to get away from the growing reputation of his family in NC and perhaps in search of new opportunities. 

When you try to get beyond the Johnson brothers to their father, there is a great deal of confusing clues.  Hugh Johnston suggested that the father was William Johnson and others have suggested that it was Andrew Johnson.  My best  guess was William from what I had been able to ascertain, although I have no proof.  I’ve spent most of my time concentrating on Moses Johnson’s descendants and not so much time on the ancestry.  However, during my research I came in contact with a very interesting older gentleman by the name of Ted Johnson.  Ted was one of those men who had a lot of information in his head but unfortunately didn’t have much of it written down.  He was descended from one of Jesse Johnson’s daughters on an illegitimate line.  Ted grew up in the Johnston Co., NC area and was related one way or another to many of the old families in the region.  Ted believed that there was a connection to Silvanus Johnson and worked to gather information on the line.  I live in Lewiston, ID – and have very little access to many of the records that Ted spent his time pursuing through.  I believe that much of his information was handed down in his family through stories.  It was through Ted’s research that I put down the Silvanus relationship in theory – as I have said; I spent my time on the descendants of Moses Johnson not the ancestry.  Ted has since passed on and unfortunately cannot be used as a resource for information.

Back to my family – you may wonder how my family got from Tennessee to Idaho.  Henderson Johnson had left Carter Co., TN around 1845.  By 1850, Moses, Nancy, Nicholas and sister, Martha were the only ones still in Carter Co., TN.  In a book on the 13th Calvary, I read a section describing how Moses, Nicholas and Green Walker worked to blow up bridges for the Union army during the Civil War.  Nicholas abandoned his family and no further trace has been found after 1862.  Martha and Green Walker have also disappeared, but their son, Nicholas married his first cousin, Laura Mayfield Johnson.  Nancy Jane Emily Johnson married Benjamin Ballard and stayed in NC for a time and then ended up in Indiana then near

Henderson in Jasper Co., IA.  She died in 1908 in Madison Co., IN.  Washington Abraham Johnson and Mary Ann Smith lived in a Jefferson Co., TN which was between Carter Co., TN and Greene Co., TN.  At the time of the Civil war, there was a great deal of conflict in these counties between those who were loyal to the union and to the confederacy.  I do not know which side, Washington sided on – but he decided to leave (as a family story is told) in the middle of the night and took his family to first Jasper Co., IA and later to Kirkman, Shelby Co., IA which is where they lived the remainder of their lives.  remainder of their lives. 

Washington and Mary Ann lived to celebrate 60 years of marriage and Washington was 97 years old at his death.  Of the 11 children that Mary Ann Smith and Washington Abraham Johnson had, only 2 stayed in Iowa.  Their oldest two children (John and Nanny Johnson Gill) ended up in Hill City, ID and died during the flu epidemic. Lytle also went to Idaho but died in 1915. The town hardly even exists anymore.  From what we were able to discover they were following jobs provided by the railroad.  William Edward Johnson went to ND with brothers Wash, Ulpian, & Frank.  He later went on to Chehalis, WA.    Laura Mayfield Johnson married her first cousin, Nicholas Walker and her family ended up in Spink Co., SD.  Maggie and Nicholas were the two

Gage Johnson lived in Dunn Center, ND - abt 1940

 

that stayed in Iowa.  Wash ended up in Garrison, ND and had a good farm.  Frank also lived in Garrison and married a widow.  My great grandfather, Ulpian Grey Johnson  aka George Johnson was born in 1872, 10 years after his family left TN during the Civil War.  He was the 8th of 11 children.  George and his brothers Washington Andrew and Frank Smith left for ND around 1907 following the path of opportunity through the railroad.  George married a widow, Shirlie Louisa Pope White and they had 4 daughters and one son.  All but one of their children grew to adulthood.  Their circumstances were very impoverished and the depression certainly didn’t help that scenario. 

 

My grandfather, Frank, was Ulpian’s only son and came from a very poor section of North Dakota and after his mother’s death at the age of 14, my grandfather quit school and worked to help support his family.  He spent some time in the CCC’s which is how he met my grandmother in north Idaho.  They married and returned to Dunn Center, ND.  By 1943, my grandmother was lonely for her family and there were few opportunities for jobs, so my grandmother and their children came out to Idaho while my grandfather made arrangements for his father.  Ulpian refused to leave Dunn Center and died not too long after my grandfather’s family left North Dakota.  So, my father, Eugene, was brought up in ID and his spent the majority of his life here except those few short years living in ND.   Other than a few cousins still in North Dakota (descended from Washington Andrew Johnson), Washington State (descended from William Edward Johnson) and back in Hampton, TN (descended from Nicholas Moses Johnson)  – my father, brothers, and nephews are the only males who can trace their ancestry to Moses Johnson, the uncle of Pres. Andrew Johnson. (Below is 3 generations of the Descendants of Moses Johnson)

Notes for MARY (POLLY) ANN SMITH:

Obituary for Mary Ann Smith Johnson -  Harlan Tribune, Harlan, IA - March 1916.

 

THE ROLL OF THE SILENT

Johnson

 

   Mary Ann Smith was born in Jefferson County, Tennessee, April 6, 1830, and died at Kirkman, Iowa, Mary 14, 1916, aged 85 years, 11 months and 8 days.  She was raised a Presbyterian and in early life joined that church.  After coming to this county she united with the Kirkman Methodist church where her membership remained until her death.

OBITUARY FOR JAMES HARVEY STORM

Printed in Waterloo Courier, Saturday, November 2, 1907

 

OLD RESIDENT DIES SUDDENLY

 

J.H. Storm Passes Away Quietly Last Evening

 

Another Soldier Has Answered the Final Call

 

Last evening at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J.H. Jackson, 611 Conger street, Mr. J.H. Storm, an aged resident of the city, passed away.  He had bidden his sons good night only a few minutes before his death and they had gone to their homes when his head suddenly dropped forward and he died without a struggle at 10:40, death being due to heart failure.

James Harvey Storm was born in New York state April 28, 1834.  He came to Iowa in the sixties and settled in Jasper county, moving to Waterloo about twenty years ago.  He served in the civil war as a member of Co. C., Fourth Michigan infantry and was faithful in his service to his country.  He was married in 1864 [sic] to Miss Hester Anna Johnson, who survives with five children, all of this city, Ralph, Charles H., Edwin M., Mrs. J.H. Jackson, and Mrs. J. Rex Bryant.  A private funeral will be held Sunday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock at 611 Conger street, conducted by Rev. H.G. Beeman of the Walnut Street Baptist church.

Deceased had been in failing health for about a year, heart trouble being the cause.  He was a carpenter and contractor by profession, industrious, conscientious, and upright.  For several months he had been building a new home for himself and his wife and took great pleasure in watching its progress.  During the time they were staying with his daughter, and it was here that his peaceful end came.  He was well known in Waterloo and many old friends and comrades in Robert Anderson post, G.A.R., of which he was a member, will regret his sudden passing.

Friends who desire to view the remains are requested to call between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2 noon.

10.  NANNY ELEANOR8 JOHNSON (WASHINGTON ABRAHAM7, MOSES6, WILLIAM5, RICHARD4, SILVANUS3, HENRY2, SILVANUS1) was born 17 Oct 1857 in Jefferson Co., TN, and died 12 Jun 1918 in Hill City, Camas Co., ID.  She married WILLIAM A. GILL Abt. 1874 in Shelby Co., IA, son of H. GILL and LOUISA J..  He was born 17 Sep 1850 in KY, and died 19 Jul 1927 in Gooding, Gooding Co., ID.

 

Notes for NANNY ELEANOR JOHNSON:

William A. and Nancy Gill had four sons, Charlie, Ed, Will, and George.

The family moved from Kirkman, Iowa to Garfield, Washington where they

stayed until 1905.  After this date, they moved to Camas Prairie, except

Ed, who stayed on as cashier of the bank in Garfield.  They homesteaded

east of Hill City which is now the Frank Wolf farm.  Nancy passed away

at an early age, and William, who wa noted for his sourdough biscuits he

baked three times a day, and cooked for George and Clyde Martin, who

lived with the Gills.  All were welcome for a meal or overnight lodging

as the following true story related.

   One night after Grandpa (William) was in bed, George answered a knock

at the door.  It was a stranger by the name of Billy Dehnels.  He had

started out from Bliss on foot over the Monument Gulch road.  It was a

long walk and as darkness fell, he headed for a light which was coming

from the Gills.  Grandpa got up and insisted on cooking him a full

course meal, bedded him down, and sent him on the way after a good

breakfast.  Billy stayed on the Prairie, and acquired land in the east

end now owned by Bill Simons, and was quite successful.  Many years

later Ed Gill, now married and with a family, was working as a

bookkeeper in Ketchum when the job terminated.  Work was hard to find in

those days of the big depression.  Ed had found a job on the Prairie

sewing sacks on the combine for Dutch Harness near Corral, so he was

looking for a ride from Ketchum to Corral.  At hailey, he was informed

that Billy Dehnels was in town and was going back soon, but there was

one delay after another and Billy said they would have to stay the

night.  Ed excused himself saying he couldn't as he was too short of

money.  Billy said "Any relative of William Gill is a friend of mine,"

and he told him of the abover story, then paid for Ed's food and

lodging.

  Son Will Gill, moved to Hill City in 1910.  He married Gertrude

Maxwell and they lived north of Hill City which is now the Boyd Harrison

place.

  Son, Ed Gill, married Alda Goheen, daughter of John and Jan Goheen of

Broken Bow, Nebraska on Alda's birthday, Nov. 4 1903 in McMinnville,

Ore. They came to Camas in 1912.  They settled one half mile north of

what is now the Pete Trader place.  The house where Dorothea and George

were born was moved to Fairfield and is now the Jack Lee residence.  In

1919, the family moved to Boise where Ed worked as bookkeeper at Reily

Atkinson Co for many years.  They moved back to the Prairie in 1930

where he did clerical work at the A.S.C. office and later for the

Bunting Tractor Co.

In 1945 they returned to Boise and Ed worked for the Pumice Products Co.

until his death in 1962, 22 months short of the 60th wedding

anniversary.  Alda passed away at Easter time, April 4, 1977.  Their

children are:

Eleanor - worked for many years at the State House in Boise.  She passed

away in March of 1984.

 Harold - was killed in a work related accident in Boise. 

 Glenn married Edna Burns Sept 27, 1935.  Glenn worked on the Darrel

Hallowell farm and the John Bahr ranch.  He also worked for 15 years at

the Wendell Mill in Fairfield wher he was amill right.  Glenn died

Nov. 1971 (the rest of this sentence is missing.)

  Robert, employed by the Forest Service, and Jim who has a boot and

saddle repair in Bellevur.

Dorothea retired from St. Alphonsus Hospital where she was a dietician

and resides in Boise.

George remembers during the depression working for his board and room

for C. J. Sincels who had a large home on Harrison Blvd. in Boise.

George was the gardener, floor polisher, and dishwasher while attending

Boise High School for two years.  He finished high school at Fairfield.

George married Elizabeth Burns on June 28th, 1936.  George worked for

Bunting Tractor for 20 years and was county Clerk and Auditor for ten

years before retiring.  George was active in the Community Church,

serving as treasurer for many years.  He and Elizabeth served as

caretakers on the church for a number of years as well.  George was in

the Marine Corp in World War II and served on Okinawa while Elizabeth

drove grain truck for Uncle Jesse at harvest and worked at the telephone

office as well as running the Fairfield Hotel above Ray Jones Grocery

where she lived with their two children and Mrs. Burns. 

(This sentence is missing but appears to read George and Elizabeth

have four children.)  Tom was a navy fighter pilot in the Vietnam War,

and served on the aircraft carrier Ticonderoga and the Oriskiney and was

a member of Attack Squadron #192.  Tom flew 252 combat missions, plus

700 day carrier landings and 300 night landings.  Tom was decorated 8

times while serving.  Tom married Joy Rice and they have two children,

Kim and Todd.  Tom is in real estate with Northwest Mutual as an

insurance agent.

  Gary runs cattle for the Glenns Ferry Cattle Association on Juniper

Mountain.  He married Mary Ireland and they have four children, Kelly,

Pat, Polly and Billy.

  JoAnn is a housewife and part time teacher in Minneapolis.  She

married Tom Ambrose, a pilot and they have two children, Ryan and Katie.

  Mike has worked for Camas County Road and Bridge for 10 years.  He

married Tracy Brackenbury and they have two shildren, Stephanie and

Brandi Lyn.

16.  NICHOLAS KEFFER8 JOHNSON (WASHINGTON ABRAHAM7, MOSES6, WILLIAM5, RICHARD4, SILVANUS3, HENRY2, SILVANUS1) was born 28 Apr 1876 in Kirkman, Shelby Co., IA, and died 25 Mar 1950 in Denison, Crawford Co., IA.  He married LILLIE ANN BAKER 24 Jun 1913 in Denison, Crawford Co., IA, daughter of G. BAKER and ELLA BALLOU.  She was born 17 Mar 1880 in Vail, Crawford Co., IA, and died 31 Oct 1972 in Dow City, Crawford Co., IA.

 

Notes for NICHOLAS KEFFER JOHNSON:

Material taken from the Manilla Iowa Centennial Boo, 1886-1986, pg. 239-40.

 

   N.K. Johnson (Keff) was born April 28, 1876, and raised on a farm in Shelby County, near Kirkman.

   His father and mother were Washington Abraham and Mary (Polly) Smith Johnson.  They came to Iowa at the beginning of the Civil War.  Although they were raised in Tennessee and North Carolina, they did not sympathize with the southern leaders and decided to go north.  They had to travel mostly at night, so they would not be found and made to go back.  They settled on a farm near Kirkman, and lived their many years before retiring in Kirkman where they both died.  Mary was 87 years and Washington was 92 (actually 97) at the time of thier deaths.  They were the parents of 11 children:  Nancy; Maggie: Laura; Mildred, who die din childhood; John; Will; Wash; Ulp; Lytle; Keff; and Frank.

   Keff was next to the youngest of the family. When still a young man, he came to the Manilla area and began working on a farm for Will Thompson.  He worked for several farmers in that area as a farm hand.  It was by attending neighborhood parties and attending the Pleasant Hill Methodist Church that he became acquainted with and later married Lillie Baker.

   They were married at the Methodist Parsonage in Denison on June 24, 190, by Rev. Miller.

    Later that summer, Keff had two serious operations.  He had been injured earlier, when he and a brother were breaking horses.  After a long recuperation, they purchased a confectionery in Manilla.  While they operated it they lived in the rooms above it.  After that, they moved to a farm north of Manilla, that was owned by Lillie's father. Homer Baker.  While living there, they became the parents of a daughter, Eva, born June 13, 1907.  Three years later, they purchased an 80 acre farm.  Keff added some building to the farm, where he raised some hogs and Hereford cattle.  Lillie had flock of rosecombed White Wyandote chickens.  She sold roosters for breeding and also hatching eggs, besides selling young chickens in the fall, she also sold eggs a the store each week.  One or two 30-dozen cases of eggs would be taken in and a credit slip was made according to the egg price.  The credit was used along with a weekly cream check to pay for clothes and other supplies needed.  It also helped pay the hired man.

    Eva graduated in 1926 from Manilla High School with a 1st grade teaching certificate.  She taught school until marrying Glenn McCutcheon, in 1934.

     The Easter Tornado of 1913 did considerable dame to their farm buildings.

     In 1918, Keff and Lillie became the parents of a son, who died soon after birth.

     In 1939, they sold their farm to Everett and Dorothy Quick.

     Lillie's father, Keff and Lillie bought a 200 acre farm near Dow City,  They lived there for four years, but due to Keff's failing health, they rented it out and moved into Denison.  Homer (Lillie's father) lived with them until he passed away in 1949.

     Keff passed away on March 25, 1950, at 74 years of age.  Lillie continued to live in her home until she became ill in 1966, and then lived with her daughter and husband, Eva ad Glenn McCutcheon.  Lillie passed away October 30, 1972.

HAZELWOOD, E. E.

"Elizabethton Star," Friday, October 12, 1934

REV. HAZLEWOOD[sic] DIES THURSDAY NIGHT AT HOME

     The Rev. E. E. Hazelwood[sic], 61, well known Baptist minister, died at his home at Hampton last night, following an illness of several weeks.

     The deceased was one of the most highly respected and beloved ministers in this entire section and has the distinction of preaching, in almost every church of the Watauga Baptist association, which comprises Johnson and Carter counties.  At the time of his death, he was pastor of the Union Baptist Church at Carden's Bluff, having accepted the pastorate on May 11, 1913.  Ordained a minister in 1906, at Hampton by the Rev. W. J. Potter, assisted by the Rev. John Rainbolt and the Rev. Sam C. Deloach, he has served as pastor at Milligan, Limestone Cove, Little Mountain, Hunter, Winner, Carter, Stoney Creek, Harmony Baptist Church, Poplar Grove, Caldwell Baptist Church, Siam, Gap Creek, Fish Springs, Dungan's Chapel and at Hampton.  In his ministerial work, he has held numerous revivals and baptized more than 2,000 converts.

     Following out the command of the Master, he has loved his fellowmen as himself and led a life of service, going throughout the mountainous section, helping those, not only in spiritual need, but physically as well.  Dark, stormy weather meant nothing to him and many times at night he has traveled miles through rain and cold to help those in need.  He served as preacher and teacher to many.

     The Rev. Hazelwood was born on September 7, 1873.  On Feb. 11, 1894 he was married to Miss Celia M. Goodwin, four children being born to this union, two daughters and two sons.  His Christian life began very early, having professed faith in Christ in 1888 uniting with the Hampton Baptist Church one year later.

     He is survived by his widow, Mrs. E. E. Hazelwood; one daughter, Mrs. John Miller; four grandchildren, Dovie Pearl Miller, Edgar Miller, Mary Christine Hazelwood, Charles Hazelwood; one brother, George Hazelwood, all of Hampton.

     Funeral services will be conducted from the Union Baptist Church at Carden's Bluff Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. C. L. Bowden, the Rev. Clay Wilson and Judge W. R. Allen officiating.  Interment will be made in the Morton Cemetery.

     Active pallbearers will be Henry Guinn, Donce Street, James B. Deal, Percy Campbell, Bob Campbell, Bruce Pierce, Roy Wilson and Will Sams.

     The Roy Hathaway Funeral Home is directing the funeral arrangements.

Mountain City Youth Shoots Father To Death

Killing Occurs After Father Threatens Son - J. L. Goodwin Believed Insane Threatens Family

     John A. Goodwin, 18, shot and almost instantly killed his father, J. L. Goodwin, 63, at their farm home two miles west of Mountain City at 8 o'clock this morning.  He gave himself up to the sheriff and was released under bond on a technical charge of murder.

     The mother of the youth declared the boy killed his father in self-defense, after the father had threatened to kill the entire family.  Witnesses state they believed the man had suddenly gone insane.

     "He followed me to the wood shed this morning just after 8 o'clock with an axe," declared the mother," and threatened to kill me.  I begged with him to desist from such an impulse, believing his mind was gone.  He still persisted in killing the family and said that he would kill John A. first.

     "He then went toward the house where John (rest of sentence illegible)

     The son is said by Sheriff Madron of Johnson County to have shot his father with a .32 caliber pistol.  The bullet entered his side just above the waistline and came out to the skin on the other side of his body, and died almost instantly.

     John A. then went to a telephone and called for Sheriff Karl Madron, stating what had happened.  He was brought to Mountain City and immediately placed under bond until a further investigation of the killing could me made.

     The family are prominent in Johnson County having been residents here for many years.  Mrs. Goodwin is a daughter of John A. Lowe, assistant postmaster at Mountain City.

     It is believed that Goodwin has been unbalanced mentally for some time and the climax came this morning in his made desire to kill his family.

     He is survived by his widow and six children.  He will be buried in the Phillips[sic] cemetery at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.

MESSAGE OF APPRECIATION

     It is during times of trouble and despair when friends are needed.  It is also then when true friendship and good neighborliness shows its truest form.

     This was proven in recent days in various ways, by so many from far and near.  Words cannot adequately express our gratitude.

     We sincerely thank each and every one for the food, beautiful flowers and other tangible things.  Most of all we appreciate the sympathetic understanding during this period of emotions, great loss and sorrow.

     For all the acts of kindness, so evidently shown through her illness and death, we are eternally grateful.

     The Family of Mrs. Ethel Goodwin, Children, Grandchildren and Sisters
