    "Susan C. Todd was born in Carroll county, Maryland March 8, 1833 and departed this life a t her home in Prescott Sept. 12, 1920, aged 77 years, 6 months and 4 days. She removed with h er parents to Lafayette, Illinois in her girlhood, and was there united in marriage to Harr y C. Johnson Sept. 12, 1861. To his union were born three sons and four daughters.
    Her husband and two daughters had preceeded her to heaven, leaving three sons, Lewis Johns on, of Centerville, Clede Johnson, of Henyetta, Oklahoma, and Ernest Johnson of Prescott, an d two daughters, Mrs. Essie Carpenten, of Denver, Colorado and Mrs. Gladys Johnson of Garland , Kansas; one brother, B. M. Todd, of Edmond, Okla; two sisters, Mrs. Margaret Thompson of La Fayette, Ill, and Martha Crowl of Prescott, Kansas, 21 grandchildren and a host of friends t o mourn her departure.
    She was converted and united with the M. E. church in girlhood, and was one of the most lo yal, earnest christians to her last concious hour.
    Her husband answered the call of the nation in the dark hours of the civil war, and she lo yally sent him forth to its service while she remained at home with her little child to pra y and keep the home fire burning.
    A quater of a century ago she came with her husband and family to the homestead north of P rescott, and ten years ago, on account of the failing health of her husband, they removed t o the little home in Prescott where, on the Sabbath evening just as the chruch bells were rin ging for the everning service, she went forth to answer the call to the higher service in hea ven.
    A devoted, loving wife and mother, a loyal friend, a neighbor, always busy and cheerful, E arth is poorer and heaven is richer by her departure.
    The funeral services were held at the M.E. church, Sept 16th, and were conducted by her pa stor, R. J. W. Mosslander, assisted by the choir. Her body was laid to rest beside her husban d in the Prescott cemetery."

    In the same paper as the obituary:
    "The sale of the Johnson property was well attended and most of the things brought very go od prices. Col. Harry Henson improves with every sale. Robert Schooley bourght the residenc e at $3100 and Mrs James Ham the smaller house at $610."
