      Mrs. Mary Ellen Johnson, 92 years old, widow of John K. Johnson, one of the early settlers of the Canon County, died at 1:40 o'clock Sunday morning at her home, 2409 Angelique Street, after a prolonged illness. Mrs. Johnson was born in Garrett County, Kentucky, the daughter of an old family of that region. When she was ten years old, the family removed to Callaway County, Missouri.

      In 1844 Mrs. Johnson went to Andrew County and was married there the following year. Her husband and herself settled on a farm three and 1/2 miles northeast of St. Joseph on Bell Road, where they lived until 20 years ago, when they removed to the city. Her husband died six years ago. She is survived by two sons, the E. A. Johnson, St. Joseph, and Samuel Johnson, Wyoming; two daughters, Mrs. Mary A. Poteet and Mrs. Nannie Lewis of St. Joseph; 32 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren and two great great grandchildren. John F. Johnson, former city comptroller and once a member of the board of public works, who died several years ago, was her son. Mrs. Johnson was the last of the pioneers of the old "Jamestown" settlements in Andrew County. Both she and her husband united with the primitive Baptist Church in 1857. The funeral services will be conducted at 12:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the home, and at 1:30 o'clock there will be a service at the Fairview church, five miles northeast of the city, where the burial will be.
