|Birth: ||Jun. 26, 1840|
|Death: ||Mar. 13, 1918|
Daughter: Isabelle Bradley Johnson
From obituary: "Prior to her marriage...was active on her father's broad plantation, in caring for Confederate soldiers. At the time of the break between the north and the south she was in Baltimore at College, and joined her father there who came up as one of the delegation from the southern states to declare war...Her gracious hospitality, and kindness for others, filled every day of her life....reared in the tradition of the old South, and throughout her life remained according to her own statement 'an unreconstructed rebel.' ...When Huntsville was occupied by the Union army, and the larders of the citizens had been stripped of food to feed the hungry soldiers, this spirited girl, the oldest of fourteen children, gathered her brothers and sisters about her, and proceeded in a body to the 'Yankee' camp where she demanded food for all. The colonel in command of the regiment, Gilbert L. Johnson, who afterward became the youngest brigadier general in the army, was destined to be her future husband. Shortly after the war they were married, moving to the general's home, Cincinnati, where they were brilliant figures in the society of the day. After the general's death, his widow, with her young daughter moved to Florida. Here she remained until her death, living in Arcadia, Key West, and finally Miami, being one of the pioneers of the Magic City."
