JOHNSTON, Samuel H. - Samuel H. Johnston was born in Monroe County, Tennessee January 17, 1826 and died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Cowan, in Springdale, February 11, 1904. He was converted at the age of twenty-one years and joined the Methodist Episcopal church, South, continuing a member of that church until his death, with the exception of a period when he did not have access to it, during which time he was a member of the Protestant Methodist church. On February 9, 1856 he was married to Margaret Hickman. This union was blessed with eight children, four of whom are dead, and the other four are left to mourn the loss of their father. His last affliction was long and trying indeed. For eight months he was confined to his room, shut up in total darkness, having lost his sight about the time he became ill. He bore his sad affliction with christian fortitude and cheerfulness and died in great peace. The remains were interred in Bluff Cemetery Friday, services being conducted by Rev. J.W. House, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church, South. The bereaved family take this means of expressing their heartfelt gratitude to all who, n any way, gave assistance during the illness and death of Mr. Johnston.
