Rev. Richard Johnson settled in Sumner County, Tennessee in about 1806. He moved there with his wife and children from Louisa County, Virginia.  He was born abt. 1760, in Hanover County, Va.  At this writing the names of Richard’s parents are uncertain. It is inferred from his pension application, and that of his brother, John Johnson, that the family lived in Hanover County, Virginia at least through the end of the Revolutionary War.

The Revolutionary War pension file of John Johnson includes in his affidavit that he was born in Hanover County on 14 May 1762.  His application was made in Marion County, Indiana on 6 October 1835 and there is a reference to his brother, Richard, who was a minister of the gospel in Sumner County, Tennessee.  Obit of John Johnson.  Richard Johnson gave a deposition in Sumner County in 1829 for his acquaintance, Samuel Higgason, who was also born in Hanover County.  (See Richard Johnson, 1829)

Richard Johnson was also soldier in the American Revolution, and entered the service from Hanover County, Virginia in May 1777 for seven weeks in the regiment commanded by Col. William Dandridge and Major Thomas Johnson. He was in Capt. Robert Dabney's militia company and marched from Hanover to Williamsburg, and was discharged at the end of seven weeks. In July 1778 he again entered the militia for three months from Hanover County in the regiment commanded by Col. Flemming, and Major Robert Dandridge in Capt. John Anderson's company. He marched from Hanover County through the City of Richmond, James City and Charles City and was stationed at Cabin Point in Surrey County, Virginia. He was then "pressed" by Capt. James Waller in July 1779, one of the commissioners of the Army of the United States, and served for three months, being discharged at Meadow (?) Bridges in the State of Virginia. Once again he entered the militia service from Hanover County in the year 1781 [sic. Probably should be 1780] and served one month in the regiment commanded by Col. Charles Dabney, in Capt. Fox's company. In January 1781 he enlisted in the Continental Line of the United States from Hanover County, Virginia and served twelve months in the regiment commanded by Col. Harvey, in Capt. Martin Hawkins company as an artificer in the shoe making business. They marched from Hanover County to the Old Barracks in Albemarle County, Virginia and then to the City of Richmond, where he was discharged at the end of twelve months.  

On 21 February 1783 in Louisa County, VA Richard Johnson was married to Lucy Hunter, daughter of George and Mildred (Austin) Hunter of Louisa County, and granddaughter of Andrew  and Jane Hunter of Hanover and Louisa Counties, Virginia. Lucy was born there on 25 November 1763 and was baptized by Parson William Douglas on 5 January 1764. (Her tombstone gives her date of birth as 25 November 1764, but is evidently off by one year). Her siblings were Austin (b. 6 June 1761, and baptized 5 July 1761), Ann (b. 9 August 1766, and baptized 20 September 1766), David (b. 24 March 1769, and baptized 21 May 1769) and Samuel (b. 12 January 1773, and baptized 9 May 1773). George Hunter died in Louisa County, Virginia in about 1805, survived by his wife, Mildred and three children, Austin Hunter, Samuel Hunter and Lucy Johnson.

Richard and Lucy (Hunter) Johnson were the parents of eleven children: George H., Mary, Richard C., Benjamin J., Samuel, Nancy M., Austin, David L., Nathan S., Andrew W. and Sarah W. The Johnsons moved to Sumner County, Tennessee in about 1806. All of their children were born in Virginia, except Sarah, who was born in Tennesee after the family's move.

By 1816 Richard Johnson was listed in the Sumner County, Tennessee tax records as owning 167 acres on the East Fork of Bledsoe Creek. This continued for a number of years, although he sold 50 acres to John Mabry in 1818 and 24 acres, also to John Mabry in 1823. In 1837 he sold land to his son, Benjamin Johnson.

Early in life Richard Johnson espoused the cause of Methodism, and became an active local preacher in Virginia. He was ordained as a deacon of the Methodist Episcopal Church by Bishop Francis Asbury in September 1799 while still living in Virginia. In November 1812 he was ordained elder of the M. E. Church by Bishop McKendree at Fountain Head, Sumner County, Tennessee. He was well known in the Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky Conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Richard Johnson deeded a one acre lot on 20 March 1819 to the Trustees of Providence Methodist Episcopal Church, who were named as Richard Baskerville, John Crenshaw, Richard Johnson [the grantor], Samuel Johnson, Richard C. Johnson, Austin Johnson and Chism Davis. According to the deed, "they shall erect a house of worship for the Methodists in the United States of America." This was taken from his own land on the waters of the East Fork of Bledsoe Creek just south of Bethpage.

Richard Johnson was allowed a pension of $68.80 per annum by the United States Congress beginning in 1832 based on his service during the Revolutionary War. His wife, Lucy (Hunter) Johnson died on Christmas Day, 25 December 1839. Richard continued to preach as long as he was able to ride horseback, and died 22 June 1849 of dropsy, in his 90th year. (Obit) Lucy's grave in the family cemetery on Chipman Road south of Bethpage, bears an inscription with her name and dates of birth and death, although the date birth is off by one year, giving it as 1764 rather than 1763 as shown in the Douglas Register. An indecipherable stone next to Lucy's is undoubtedly the grave of Richard Johnson, the Revolutionary soldier, shoemaker, Methodist preacher and farmer. Richard Johnson's Last Will and Testament was dated 19 November 1848 and proved in the Sumner County Court during the November term 1849. He specifically named ten living children and provided for the heirs of his son, Austin Johnson, but did not name them in the will. Estate of Rev. Richard Johnson.
