Johnson, Enoch B. (7 MAR 1842 - 5 JUN 1910)

Enoch B. Johnson was born in Summerset Co., Maine, March 7, 1842, and died at Loyal, Clark County, Wis., June 5, 1910. When he was about three years of age his parents moved to Sheboygan Co., Wis., and there he grew to manhood. From here, too, he went to serve his country, enlisting in Co. B. 8th Wis. In the spring of 1862 he was taken ill and honorably discharged. On July 2, 1863 he was married to Miss Clara J. Whitcomb of Sheboygan Falls. In the fall of 1864 he re-enlisted in the army and served to its close.

About 36 years ago he moved his family to Clark County, Wis., settling on a new farm in the town of York, and lived here until the fall of 1902, when he sold his farm and moved to this village where he resided up to his death.

Besides his wife the deceased leaves to mourn his death three children, Mrs. Ward Richardson of Dudley and Mrs. George Gardner and Lyman of Loyal, two sisters, Mrs. Mary Norton and Mrs. Elizabeth Hill of Hingham and two half sisters, Mrs. Martha Rumbsy of Sheboygan Falls and Mrs. Abbie Weston of Talamooth, Oregon.

The funeral was held at the house June 8th at 1 p.m., Rev. Kildow officiating assisted by Rev. Philpott. Interment was made in the cemetery at York Center. There were many beautiful floral offerings from the Woman's Relief Corps and friends.

On behalf of the sorrowing family and relatives let us say their hearts are filled with gratitude for the dear friends who were so kind to them in their time of sorrow and bereavement and they await the opportunity to say in deeds what they cannot express in speech.
