Total records = 50.
To reach cemetery drive southeast out of the community of Johnson,
on the Johnson Colton Road. After a couple turns in the road you
will spot the cemetery on the hill on the left side of the road.
This was in the cemetery for the community of Johnson, at one
time a small town. As one heads south on the Johnson Colton Road,
shortly after you leave town, you will see the cemetery off to
the left, on the hillside. It is a grove of shrubs and trees now,
with no access. Farmers have plowed the road closed, allowing
no access to the cemetery. Since there was no access to the cemetery,
I only could take a photo of it.
The Johnson Cemetery was established in 1898 with the first burial
being G.W. Warfield. It had affiliations with the IOOF lodge.
This is a cemetery used by the early settlers, but as they moved
to other areas, the cemetery soon was not needed.
The records listed are done by Wes & Carrie Lartique, in Aug
of 1973. I am told the last burial was done in 1982, so this is
fairly close to being a complete reading. If anyone knows of more,
please contact me and I will be very happy to add the name.
I visited this cemetery on Jul 03, 2006.
