Events

Children

Birth Notes: Wife - Matilda C. Johnson

Have been unable to determine what place "Taglesbraw" refers to.


Research Notes: Wife - Matilda C. Johnson

Matilda may not have been a child of Lauritz and Caroline. From Mark Johnson 3 May 2012:
"In addition, there is a Chris C. Johnson (1865 or 1866 - 1901) who married Matilda Jensen (?) (April 1871 - 31Aug1938), both of whom are buried in Gibson City, Ill. It is confusing because Matilda is listed by the historical society as 'daughter of Lauritz Jensen Johnson.' No listing of Chris C. parents."

The 1900 census has "Caroline Johnson, Mother" living with Chris and Matilda in Ford County, Illinois. Caroline may have been Chris' mother instead, since he was the head of the household. 26

Research Notes: Husband - Clarence Frederick Johnson

From Mark Johnson:
"Clarence and Christine married in MT, moved to Ill., back to MT before settling in NJ in the early 1940s. Clarence was an executive at RCA, Christina was a high school principal. They had one child, my fater Jack Walter Johnson." 26


Research Notes: Wife - Christina Marguerite Mitchell

Christine's first husband was Ed Gerber, who died in 1931. 29


Research Notes: Child - Jack Walter Johnson

From Mark Johnson 6 May 2012:
"My father was Jack Johnson. I recall his parents/my grandparents fought for years over that - his father/mny grandfather (and therefore in the Johnson/perhaps Jorgensen) line grumbled it should have been John as the family always had "John's". His mother/my grandmother would hear none of it - she said the "deal" was the Johnson's got the family name if it was a girl (they had chosen Anna for her mother-in-law Anna Walters) and her side got the naming rights on a son - she grumbled she had compromised in not naming it after her side. She said she split the difference and named her son Jack hoping that the Johnsons would think it was a nickname for John.

"Was life really simpler back then??????"

From Mark Johnson 15 May 2012:
"I came across a photo in that stack my brother dropped off of an elderly man throwing a baseball with a young boy - I am pretty sure it is my great-grandfather Louie and my Dad - it is labelled "21 W. Collingwood - 1941". So, it is possible that Louie and Caroline moved to New Jersey (they lived in Haddon Heights, NJ at some time) as early as 1941...

"NJ doesn't jive with my father Jack's often told, always
hilarious stories of his boyhood in Montana - spent scanning the
night skies for Japanese fighters and bombers, days spent listening for Japanese words as the Native Americans that worked on ranches would sit in his kitchen as his mother Christina feed them. I guess Jack could have come east for summers (and to ensure his safety from those Japanese warplanes flying over Montana). " 31
