John R. Johnson (1843-1889) was son of Balda C. Johnson (1810-1852), a native of Fayetteville, Lincoln County, West Tennessee who immigrated to Texas in 1834, served in the Texas army 1836-37, and settled near Sulfur Prairie Springs (later renamed Clarksville) in Red River County. Immediately before moving to Texas, he had resided just over the border in Clark County, Arkansas Territory, circa 1825-33, along with his father John R. Johnson (n.d.), afterwards of Shelby County (1830-41) and at least three of his brothers, a sister, and their families. Records concerning them are found in the county circuit court records and in the Arkansas Superior Court records when Balda was plaintiff in Collins vs. Johnson (1832).
