Obituary from the “Churubusco Truth”

 

This community was startled by the sudden and almost wholly unexpected death of JAMES M. JOHNSON, Thursday of last week.  Mr. Johnson got up before 6 o’clock on the above morning and seemed to be enjoying his usual good health and having business with Trustee Compton, decided to call on him before breakfast, as they only resided a few hundred yards apart.   Upon his arrival at the home of Mr. Compton, he was invited into the house and it was while sitting by the fireside that he fell over prostrated.   As quickly as possible Trustee Compton and wife were at his side and spoke to him, but he did not answer, and his heart had ceased to beat. 

 

James Johnson was born in Knox Co., Ohio, November 21, 1831, died February 1st, 1900, aged 68 years, 2 months and 10 days. 

 

In the fall of 1851 he emigrated from Ohio to Iowa and in the spring of 1852 came to Allen Co., Ind. with his parents.   He remained in Allen County until 1863 when he moved to Whitley County, and in the spring of 1864 settled on the present home farm.   On December 16, 1860 he was united in marriage to Hannah M. Oaks.   To this union were given 9 children, 6 girls and 3 boys.   These children are all living except one boy, Samuel, who died years ago.   He united with the M.E. Church at Churubusco, February 25th, 1894 under the pastorate of Rev. B. S. Hollopeter and was received into full membership, August 5th of the same year by Rev. J. M. Haines and remained a member of the same until his death.  

 

Funeral services were held at Eel River, Sunday February 4th  at 11 a.m. by Charles Tinkham.  

 

(The funeral cost for James M. Johnson in 1900 were $45.00)

DAVID JOHNSTON (JOHNSON)

David Johnston, For Many YEARS, Resident of Fort Wayne, Dies In Eel River Township; Rites Sunday

 

            DAVID JOHNSTON, age 97, pioneer resident of Eel river Township, Allen County, and for many years a resident of Fort Wayne, died of paralysis Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at home of a son, WILL JOHNSTON, of Eel River Township. He suffered a stroke Monday.

            Mr. Johnson is believed to have been one on the first white babies born in Eel River Township, on August 3, 1836, a son of MR. and MRS. JOHN R. JOHNSTON. His father and two of his father’s brothers, JOSEPH and DAVID JOHNSTON, are credited with having been among the first white men to settle on farmland of Allen County. They claimed farms in Eel River Township 100 years ago.

            The deceased had lived at 2914 Abbott Street, this city, until the death of his second wife, MRS. JANE SIEGMUND JOHNSTON, last August 20. He then went to make his home with the son. His wife was credited with having been instrumental in bringing about the arrest of Jeff Davis, president of the Confederate States, by Union troops the presence near her home of a suspicious character, who was found, upon capture, to be Davis.

FUNERAL SERVICES SUNDAY

            Funeral services for Mr. Johnston will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Eel River Baptist Church with Rev. E.J. Hults, pastor of the Churubusco M. E. Circuit, officiating. Burial will be in Eel River Cemetery.

            Five generations survive the aged man. Surviving are two sons, JOHN, of this city, and WILL, of Eel River Township; three daughters, MRS. DANIEL WINEBRENNER, of Fort Wayne, MRS. ALMEDA ARNOLD, of Churubusco, and MRS. CLARK SIBLE, of Eel River Township, a step-daughter, MRS. EMMA MILLER, of Churubusco; a brother, W.H. JOHNSTON, of Fort Wayne; 12 grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren, and great-great-great grandchildren. A sister died in Florida last January 8 at the age of 95.

REARED IN A LOG CABIN

 Mr. Johnson was born and reared in a log cabin in Eel River Township, on Johnston Road about two miles east of what is now State Road No. 2. He attended a log school known as the old Hickory School, which was the only school in the territory. Mr. Johnston recalled in an interview with a News-Sentinel reporter in 1931 how the pupils sat on split logs and wrote on boards on the wall.

            Mr. Johnston taught school as a young man for five “quarters” in log schools across the line in Whitley County, a “quarter” being a winter term of three months. He drove oxen teams to Fort Wayne during the early days.

            At the time of his marriage in 1857, Mr. Johnston built a log cabin for his bride and they lived in the pioneer home about 20 years. His first wife died in 1911.

            He moved from Eel River Township in 1906 to Churubusco and lived there until coming to Fort Wayne in June 1913 at the time of his marriage to Jane Siegmund. They lived at 2914 Abbott Street until her death.

WESLEY JOHNSTON

 

WESLEY JOHNSTON, was the son of JOSEPH and MARTHA JOHNSTON of Eel River Township, Allen County, Indiana.   Wesley was born March 23, 1842.   His father was born February 15, 1802, in the state of New Jersey.   While his mother, MARTHA OPDYKE, was born December 18, 1811.  JOSEPH JOHNSTON, father to Wesley, in 1822, removed to Greene County, Ohio, where he married Martha Opydyke, February 14, 1825.    In 1835 he immigrated to what was then the wilds of Allen County, Indiana, settling on the land still owned and occupied by Mrs. Johnston, in Eel River Township.   Braving the hardships and perils that overshadow the pioneer's pathway, with strong hands and fearless hearts, they made headway rapidly toward fitting up a home for themselves.   Enduring toil and privation for many years, they finally acquired 300 acres of excellent land, a home, surrounded with comforts and with plenty.   Respected by all who knew him, this noble pioneer departed this life June 29, 1869, leaving the venerable partner of his toils and hardships, his joys and sorrows, to mourn his loss.   Mrs. Johnston, now nearly "three-score and ten" looks back to a long life, well spent. 

 

The career of young Wesley ran along about in the channel of other young men of his rude opportunities, up to the period of the late rebellion.   He was attending the Methodist Episcopal College at Fort Wayne.   The spring term of that institution closing in June, 1861, he enlisted as a private soldier on the 27th day of July following, at Fort Wayne, to join the Nineteenth Regiment, U.S. Infantry, then being recruited in this city by Lieut. Stanberry.    Two days after enlisting, he was sent to Indianapolis and assigned to Capt. Gillman's company A.    At that particular time, there were no volunteers being recruited in Allen County, the cause of his having enlisted in the regular army.   Wesley was impatient of delay, fearing the war might terminate ere he could take a part.   In September 1861, his company, being full and ready for field service, reported for duty to Maj. Gen. Anderson, commanding in Kentucky, with headquarters at Louisville.   They continued with this command, participating in the terrible battle of Pittsburg Landing;  in the long retreat back through Tennessee and Kentucky;  in the hotly contested fight at Perryville;  thence on, after the name was changed to the Army of the Cumberland, under Maj. Gen. Roscercrans;  in the battle of Stone River, the skirmish at Tullahoma, and finally in the great battle of Chickamauga.   At this time, they were in Gen. Baird's division, Fourteenth Army Corps under Maj. Gen. Thomas.     Up to and including the second day of this famous battle, September 20, 1863, whether in camp or on the march, or facing deadly missiles of the enemy, young Johnston could ever be found present of his company and command, faithful and true to his trust.   But unfortunately, on the Sabbath evening, even after the contest virtually ceased, he was captured.   And now, an unwilling prisoner of war, with a myriad of others, he was hastened off to Richmond, VA, to there be lodged in the Pemberton Building.   Here, confined about six weeks, he was removed to Danville, of the same state.    Thinly clad, deprived even of clothing sent them for issue of the United States Government, sparingly fed, on miserable food, and allowed no fire through that long winter;  snow, at one time for three days being many inches deep on level, and including the extreme cold of that memorable New Year's .... here he was kept to suffer, from November 1863 until May 1964.    With his fellow sufferers he was then removed again, this time to Andersonville, that famous prison so famous for its horrors.   Here in common with the general rule, a victim of the most painful privation and exposure, he was detained until September 1864.   To Charleston, S.C. they were next removed, and after a stay there of about six weeks, were again transferred to Florence, also of South Carolina.   While here about the middle of December 1864, they received the joyful news of relief.   Wesley, with a large number of his prison comrades, had been exchanged.  

 

Reaching the sea coast, then, in the hands of the "boys in blue", they hailed the "old flag" once more, with shouts of gladness and with hearts of joy!   At Annapolis, Maryland, a new outfit of clothing and other necessaries were provided and from here, Wesley received a furlough to come home.  

 

His furlough, twice extended, he finally returned to Annapolis, and on the 21st of March, 1865, was discharged.   But by now he was a mere walking skeleton;  his weight was reduced to about one hundred pounds.   Following his final return home, he had a long sickness, necessarily caused by his hardships, exposures and privations, during about fifteen months of prison life.   For a long time his restoration was almost despaired of.   However, providence desired it otherwise.   In a measure, he was finally restored to health, and is still alive to narrate the scenes of cruelty and suffering, to which a prison life had made him a victim.   On the 5th day of October 1865, he wedded Miss MARILYN McKEE, daughter of JOHN and MARY MCKEE, of Eel River Township.   Her mother, however, was a widow at this time.    

 

Their union was blessed with four children, LUTHER H., CHARLES L., JAMES and CLARA MAY.    In the accumulation of property, they have prospered liberally.   They now have a farm of 103 acres, having occupied it since 1872, and possess with it a comfortable happy home.    Both Mr. and Mrs. Johnston have been members of the Methodist Episcopal Church since 1859.   In politics, Mr. Johnston is an uncompromising Republican, but not a politician.   

 

He is an enterprising farmer;  has already taken steps toward breeding an improved grade of cattle, sheep and hogs, and intends a continuance of improvement as fast as circumstances will permit.   He is a friend to education, a supporter and advocate of good schools, and, as far as able, ever stands ready to aid in advancing general improvements for his county.   Peaceable, temperate, kind to his family and industrious;   better by far, would our communities be, could we have a greater number of citizens like WESLEY JOHNSTON.
