Sarah R. Griffin Johnson, 1839-MS to 1906-TX, OBIT
Posted by: Sherry Wilkinson (ID *****6795) Date: March 21, 2010 at 09:56:06
  of 1354

NO RELATION

I came across her Obit in the Aug 3rd 1906 issue of The Commerce Journal, Commerce, Hunt Co., TX

See clipping here:
http://www.genealogywise.com/group/oldnews/forum/topics/aug-3-1906-the-commerce

She was born Dec 18,1839 in Desoto Co, MS and came to Texas in 18_2. She married R.N. (Richard Neely?) Johnson in 1867(?), moved to Hunt Co TX in 1889.

I believe this may be her:
