Daughter of Rev. War Patriot Aaron Hall and Sarah Richardson and maternal grand-daughter of Rev. War patriot Capt. John Richmond. She was born in Norwich (now a part of Huntington). She attended local schools in Norwich and Westhampton, and graduated from Hopkins Academy. She taught school in Chesterfield, Westhampton and Leeds. On 1 May 1834 she married Alfred Johnson. They settled in the Hockanum section of Hadley, Massachusetts where they had seven children, 4 of whom survived her. After Alfred died in 1886, Drusilla moved to Florence where she lived with her daughter, Sara Johnson until shortly before her death, when she moved to the home of her son, Rev. Dr. Myron A Johnson, 50 Kensington Ave, Northampton.
For her 97th birthday, Drusilla sponsored a trolley trip to Mountain Park, Holyoke for 45 residents of Florence who had celebrated "threescore years and ten". For her 100th birthday, she attended services at Edwards Church in Northampton and in the afternoon, a picnic at her old home in Hockanum.
