Thomas Dawson Johnson

November 2, 1886
Union Recorder
DIED, At his home in this city on Thursday last, Mr. Thos. Johnson, who was not only a very aged man, but with one exception had probably been a citizen of this place longer than any other of its inhabitants. He was in the 86th year of his age and was noted here for having been the husband of six wives, his last wife having survived him. He married several of his wives late in life and it seemed the general impression of our citizens, whenever he lost a wife that he would soon get another, an expectation which he never disappointed. He was we think a kind husband and seemed to have no trouble in supplying the place of a lost helpmate. No doubt very nearly all of his friends, who knew him in his prime, had preceded him to his grave, but such of  them as remain, remember him as a jovial, stirring man, fond of a joke, attending with due diligence to whatsoever he had on hand he continued to be able to do so. At the time of his death he had a number of years been a member in good standing of the Methodist church in the place. His funeral services and his burial took place in our city cemetery on Friday, last.
