JOHNSON, Jacob Queener – {from Johnson} Jacob Queener Johnson was born in Coffee County, East Tenn. in July 1828 and died at this home in Johnson, Ark. Sunday evening Feb. 16, 1908. Mr. Johnson came to Washington county in 1851 and has been a citizen of this county since that time. He was married to Miss R. J. Boatright in 1852. Thirteen children blessed this union, nine of them now living. Mr. Johnson has been identified with various business interests in North West Arkansas but some years ago he retired from active business circles and has been living on a farm near Johnson. His children are all grown up and married and scattered away to various parts of the country. B.F., Jr., Mrs. Mary Lichlyter and Mrs. Edna Vernon being the only ones now residing at Johnson. The funeral exercises are to be held this evening or to-morrow morning. The uncertainty is owing to the arrival of the youngest daughter, Mrs. Dora McGuire, who resides in San Jacinto, Nev. She started eastward Saturday night and is expected to arrive here today noon. The passing of Uncle Jacob will cause many pangs of regret among his large circle of friends and reminds us that the rear guard of our old pioneers is being thinned out rapidly. Peace to his memory. Mrs. Lizzie Corlew of Bentonville, Mrs. Tennie Vernon of Springtown and Mrs. Kate Ramey of Carter are here to attend the funeral and burial of their father, J.Q. Johnson.
