John Kent Johnson was born on 11-28-1813 in Greene County, Tennessee, to William and Nancy (Morgan) Johnson. The last date John and Nancy Allison Johnson can be placed in Greene County is October 1842, when John petitioned the Circuit Court to serve as estate administrator to sell 400 acres of land owned by his deceased father, William Johnson. John and Nancy left Greene County, Tennessee about 1847/48 and migrated to southern Illinois. In 1850, John and Nancy are enumerated in the census of Hamilton County, Illinois.

The brothers, John Kent Johnson, Robert Henry Johnson and Hiram Gibbs Johnson, lived only a few households apart in the Knights Prairie Township, near the town of Macedonia. John Kent was a shoemaker and a farmer.

They are buried in the Macedonia ME Church Cemetery in Franklin County, Illinois. Several of their children are also buried there.
