53 From Clarke Johnson
The 'George' was for George Brown who was his mother's brother. As related to me by Harold (Aug.2002) Harold was born on the Broome Place. At age 5 he started school at the Zion Line School. He sat with his brother Jim. When the teacher asked him to go to the school he turned and asked Jim if it was alright. They were living at the "Martin Place" when he was 9 and he went to "Crozier"s School" He went to High School for 4 years and then worked at Jack Kenney's farm for $12 a month. He joined the R.C.A.F and went overseas on the S.S. Cuba leaving Halifax on Dec. 14 1941 and arrived in Scotland Dec. 25 but because it was Christmas Day, for some reason they were not disembarked until Dec. 26. He noticed the first morning after sailing that the convoy was scattered and most of the day they were trying to gather. Every morning they seemed scattered. Out of accident or design he never knew. related by Harold (Feb. 2003)
As the war was starting to wind down and they had enough forces, they rotated home the longer serving people, perhaps also because they volunteered. Harold left Liverpool in Jan 1945 on the Queen Mary and sailed to New York on a three day crossing. He took a train to Valcartier Air Base and then to Uplands Airbase in Ottawa where he was stationed a month before his discharge papers came through. He could have volunteered for the Pacific but with his mother sick and having serve 4 years he did not. Related by Harold (April 2003)

Baptized Martha Elizabeth Mabel on Sept. 25 1901 in the Presbyterian Church at Bryson . The minister was Robert Whillams and the witnesses were her grandfather William Brown and William Prior.
Received from the Pontiac district court on Oct. 15 1962. Died of cancer. Started as breast cancer and she did not tell doctor until it was too late.
As a young woman she worked in NJ for the Wiss family. (Wiss scissors) She was cook, they were going to their winter place in Bermuda or Bahamas and wanted her to come also, maybe to look after the kids. She instead came home and got married. Aunt Jessie thinks that either Uncle John or David Peever got her the job. Perhaps it was arranged as she was going with dad and her parents did not approve. They married on May 22 1926 in Beachburg by Rev R.W. McVey at St Andrews Church. Witness's were William D. Johnson and Jessie Johnson, bro. & sis. of the groom.

We move to Ottawa in 1960 and I went back into grade 10 as I was missing French which I had not taken. .I went to Ridgemont High School on Alta Vista Drive.

Buried Oct. 13 1982 in Cobden Cemetery She lived in Smith Falls on Beckwith Street. Her husband Howard Jackson worked in the Roundhouse and had a heart attack and died at work. After his death she moved back to Cobden where she lived until her death. She liked to go out and would often coax her husband to go out after he got home. He would be tired and she would say ,"Have a cup of tea and you will be fine" She liked a very strong cup of tea. Jessie and Leta would often go down to their place. Once Leta was there and when Howard came home he was very tired but the Ottawa Ex was on and with a supper and a cup of tea she coaxed him into driving them into Ottawa.

61 From Clarke Johnson, Aug 2007
Witnesses at marriage of J. B. Johnson and Susan Brown were Robert Thomas Brown and Janet M. Johnson.

The 'B' was just an initial to distinguish him from another John Johnson His first farm was in Westmeath. I think they called it the old Hennessy place. He moved to the Zion Line farm he bought from John Wilcox. When he sold it to Tom Broome , Jessie cried because she missed it and hated Tom Broome for buying it This was on the left side of Zion Line coming from Cobden. It was a fair distance off the road. Dr. Pye bought it from Tom Broome and fixed it up and lived in it. She was very young at the time. They lived in a rented house approx.. where the old age home is on the outskirts of Beachburg. JB travelled all over looking for a farm. He went to Kinburn near Ottawa, north to Iroquois Falls Ont and west to the prairies. he finally bought the place outside of Beachburg that Delbert eventually took over. While at this farm they were sitting inside when somebody came in and yelled that the chimney was on fire. Uncle Sam happened to be there at the time. They ran to the horse trough in the barn yard and filled buckets of water . It was fortunate that there was a ladder already standing against the house. Sam ran up the ladder with a bucket in each hand and they threw water on the fire that had caught the shingles on fire and saved it For some reason the children and mother were throwing articles out the window to save them in case the house was lost and the boys threw out the commodes,[thundermugs] from under the beds and not one of them broke. [Story from Aunt Jessie who saw them do it and from Edsel, son of Sam told to me in April & May 2000.]
From his son Harold Johnson in interview in Aug 2002 that John B Johnson's first farm was the "Hennessy Place" whom he worked and then rented from. At this time John B was school trustee of the school near Hennessy's His 2nd farm was on Zion Line which he bought from Mr. Wilcox and then sold to Tom Broome. It was known as the "Broome Place". His 3rd farm was know as "Gov. Farm" which was at the Little Lakes in Beachburg, basically on the site of the old age home. He rented it in 1922 and worked on the road that went through there from Foresters Falls . He was there from spring to fall. His next farm was the "Hynes Place" on Zion Line. It is about 1/2 mile past Keith Johnson's place and on the opposite side of the road. They lived on the Hynes Place for approx.. 2 and a half years from 1922 to the fall of 1925. His last farm was known as the "Martin Place" and was on McLaughlin Rd. beside the farm that became my father Alex's farm, {John B's son) and my fathers farm was bought by his brother Bill.
