Johnson Toppin, retired farmer, Carmichaels, Pa., was born in Maryland, February 25, 1808, and is a son of John Toppin and Rebecca Johnson Toppin. They were members of the Society of Friends and of English descent. His father was a farmer and carpenter through life. Johnson was one of three sons and three daughters, and spent most of his life in Greene County, Penna, where he also attended school. He learned the gunsmith trade, in which he engaged for a time, then followed ship carpentering as a business. He also ran on the river as captain on a keel boat for nineteen years. He afterwards bought a farm in Cumberland Township, Greene County, where he lived until 1885, the date of his retirement. In 1833 he was united in marriage with Miss Harriet Dalby, daughter of John and Jane Dalby. Mrs. Toppin was born in 1813 and is also a native of Pennsylvania. Of their five children, three are living, two in Iowa. They are all married; Matilda Toppin, wife of William Gass; Rebecca Ann Toppin, wife of J. K. Parshall; and Almira Toppin, wife of Thomas W. Lincoln. Mr. Toppin is a Democrat and his wife is a faithful member of the Methodist Church.
