Warner Johnson was born in 1866 in Tennessee. His father William Franklin Johnson moved the family to Dent County, Missouri in 1869. Nettie Friebelman was born in 1869, probably in Dent County, Missouri. In 1882 the Johnson family left Missouri for Montana, going up the Missouri to Fort Benton by steamboat, where Warner's father first worked on a dairy farm. Soon after, he staked a homestead claim on land outside Highwood, Montana. At the time the letters in this collection were written, Warner was 23 and was probably living on his own. Nettie and Warner were married sometime after the date of last letter in the collection. They lived on a homestead near Belt, Montana.
