Arkansas Methodist Newspaper
March 7, 1885 page 7 col 1

Sister D M Johnson was born in Carrol Co., Tennessee, Dec 11, 1819; professed religion and joined the M.E. Church in 1836; was married to Bro. Stephen Johnson, January, 1841, and came with him to Dorsey co., Ark., in 1850, where she has lived until called to her home above, Dec. 9th, 1884. The writer made her acquaintance in 1871. When a stranger he went to that part of Warren circuit and was received by Sister Johnson in her home with a warm greeting as P.C. of the circuit. Many a weary itinerant has found a place of rest and received encouragement by her kind hospitality and cheering words. Sister Johnson has brought her children up to love the Church and religion and they have become religious as they grew up to maturity. She was a great sufferer in her protracted illness, but bore her sufferings without a murmur and often gave positive assurance of her confidence in her Savior--asked all the family to meet her in heaven. She is at rest. Her bereaved companion is left to suffer a little longer. He has the prayers of many ministers and brethren, who know him, that he may be sustained and cheered to the end.
