The following is an article published abt. 1949 in the Willcox, Arizona newspaper:
INTERESTING PERSONALITY:
A resident of Willcox for 40 years is our personality this week - Mrs. H. L. Johnson. She came to Willcox as a bride in 1909 and claims Willcox "was the greatest place you ever heard of." Those were the days of buckboards and buggies and the greater part of the population were native born Texans, which probably made her feel at home, for she was a Texan too. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson lived in Willcox for a year before moving to the Seven Dash Ranch which is now operated as a guest ranch. When moving back to town they built the residence where she still makes her home and it was then considered to be in the suburbs. Mrs. Johnson has held the position of secretary of the Cochise-Graham Cattle Growers Assn., for 13 years, is a past president and charter member of the Willcox Woman's Club, past matron of the Harmony Chapter, O. E. S., a member of the Christian Church and the Willcox Garden Club. Mrs Johnson is more proud, however, of the accomplishments of her husband who prior to his death was engaged in cattle buying and ranching here. He was also instrumental in founding the union stockyards in Los Angeles. In 1947 Mrs. Johnson retired after teaching for 18 years in the Willcox Grammar School.
