From the Rochester (Indiana) Mercury, 9 August 1860
At the residence of his son-in-law, Thomas Shelton, in this county, four miles southeast of Rochester, John Johnson, at 3:00 o'clock a. m., August 7th, 1860, aged 96 years, 2 months, 24 days.
Mr. Johnson was born and raised in the state of Virginia; served in the Revolutionary war; was present at the siege of York when Cornwallis surrendered, and was perhaps the only person in our county that ever saw the face of Washington. He died in the full triumph of a living faith.
