SAMUEL JOHNSON Was born in Ireland in the year of 1818, where he lived his life until 1844.
Then from there he departed for the United States locating in Ohio, where he lived for a number of years.  He left Ohio for Illinois and from there he came to Kansas, where he made his home until death took him away; Nov. 10, 1900, making him nearly 83 years of age.
Mr. Johnson was a farmer by trade, in which he was an unrelentless worker.
He was united in marriage at the age of 25 years. Ten children were born to them of which 8 are living.  He united with the Baptist Church when a young man and lived a good Christian life, always ready to make a new friend or to help an old one.  
Death came to him very suddenly.  He was out about the barn doing some chores, where it is supposed he fell dead.  It is thought he had been dead nearly half an hour when found.


Samuel Johnson died at his home in South Haven, Kansas, on the evening of Nov, 10, 1900.
