T.C. JOHNS 1848-1897 Old Red Rock Cemetery
Posted by: Clay L. Brown (ID *****4492) Date: December 07, 2010 at 18:31:51

I was passing by the Old Red Rock Cemetery and took a picture of T.C. JOHNS's tombstone because of the soldier on the top. I found him on Find-A-Grave (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=johns&GSiman=1&GScid=5793&GRid=6974650&) where it was mentioned that the soldier only has one arm. I added my photos to the memorial and started trying to do research on the man.

He is listed on Find-A-Grave and at the TxGenWeb Project (http://www.txgenweb8.org/txbastrop/csa.htm) as fighting for the CSA but the TxGenWeb site mentions that these are people that served in outside units or states. According to the 1880 Bastrop Co., TX census, he was born in Illinois. I'm wondering if he possibly fought for the North? He would have only been 17 when the war ended.

The 1880 census lists him as a lawyer in Bastrop.

Finally, the link for the Bastrop Advertisor Newspaper (http://www.txgenweb8.org/txbastrop/newspaper/bastropadv.htm) says that

"Prof. T. C. Johns Killed by Hendrix, Personal"

for 20 Sep 1897 but the link is no good!

DOES ANYONE KNOW THE STORY OF T.C. JOHNS?
