      JOHNSON - at her home in the town of Eaton. May 19, 1881, Mary A. Johnson, wife of Mr. M. D. Johnson, and daughter of B.D. [sic] Knapp of Rockland, aged 28 years. The deceased was born in the town of Rockland, Oct. 8, 1852, and was married Dec. 26, 1878. Mrs. Johnson was a most estimable woman and was very highly esteemed among her neighbors. Her loss will be deeply felt, but no where so keenly as in her own home where she was a kind and affectionate wife and a help mate indeed. She leaves a husband, an infant and a huge circle of relatives and friends. The funeral was very largely attended on Saturday and a long procession followed the remains to the burial at Clarks Mills. Manitowoc Pilot Thursday, May 26, 1881
