JOHN N. JOHNSON was born in Louisa County, Va., on February 22, 1832, being the fifth of nine children born to Thomas and Elizabeth (Seargeant) Johnson. Both parents were born in Virginia; his father dying there in 1847, his mother moved the family, including John, to Beverly, Christian Co., Ky., in 1849. She bought a farm on which they lived three years, but being too small, she sold it, and bought one on which John now resides. John remained with her as the head of the family till he was twenty-five years old. He then married Martha, third child of Pleasant and Sarah (Weathers) Cayce, borrowing the money on which to start house-keeping. He resided at home one year longer, and then bought a place near Lafayette, and settled upon it. Here he remained thirteen years, till he secured the farm next to his present place, on the east. He built his residence in 1883; his mother died ten years ago; he was a charter member of the Lafayette Grange, and is now a member of the Church Hill Grange. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson are members of the Christian Church. Mr. Johnson’s maternal grandfather was a soldier of the Revolution, and refused to receive any pension. His four grandparents lived to be very old, each nearly reaching one hundred years, and all finally died without any trace of disease, and simply from old age.
