Obituary for Sarah Ann Johnson

Another of the old landmarks is gone. Mrs. Sarah Ann Johnson, a resident of Rock Port for the past decade and of this county for almost half a century, departed this life at the home of her son-in-law, John F. Pierce, five miles southeast of Rock Port, Oct. 2, 1905. The funeral service, conducted by Elder D.M. Philippe, were held at the old home, where she had been taken a short time before her death. The remains were laid beside her husband and father in the Hunter Cemetery.

The sill of medicine and surgery failed to cure a cancer which came on her face more than a year ago, so that all her friends, relatives and son-in-law could do was to use their uniting thoughts to alleviate her sufferings, which they faithfully did.

Her maiden name was Hayes. She was born in Jefferson County, Indiana, February 15, 1826, was married to Daniel Johnson in 1852. They moved to Atchison County, Missouri in 1856, locating five miles southeast of here. She was left a widow soon after locating here. Being a strong willed woman she managed her business affairs with so much energy and thrift that she accumulated considerable property. She united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church in 1852 and remained identified with them forty or more years.

Upon her removal to Rock Port about twelve years ago, she united with the ME. Church, of which she has ever since been an active member. She belonged to the W.C.T.U. and was an untiring worker in the temperance cause. She was a good neighbor and always tried to throw her influence on the side of right.

She leaves on child, Alice R., wife of John F. Pierce, and eight grandchildren, viz: Charles, Lonnie, Geneva, Venus, Zane, Zeno, Lottie and Sallie Pierce, and on great grandchild. All but two grandchildren were present in her last hours.
