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. She missed him terribly for the rest of her life.

Moved to Beachburg when Angnes was one year old; 1853. First child Peter died in Scotland. Came to Canada with John and Alexander. Had 5 more children in Canada. His farm was on the left side of the road as you came out of Beachburg. Aunt Jessie remembers an old stone foundation but apparently there has been a number of houses built. {Conversation with Aunt Jessie May 2000]
From an old birthday book of Mary [Brown] Johnson wife of Sam Johnson which she kept for the early part of the 20th century she wrote "Feb. 19 John Johnson passed away at age 88 years, 8 months, 9 days."
According to progam and info from above birthday book, John was born on June 10 1810.

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.
