B. Johnson was a physician who was born on June 9, 1867 and died
November 28, 1962. He was the son of
Clarissa (Sherkley) Johnson. He and his wife are both buried at St. Joseph RCC Cemetery. On January 19, 1897 in Washington, D.C. he married
Mary Edith "Mamie" Morgan (b. December 15, 1873, d. February
9, 1958) of Friendly Hall, Helen, Md. and Georgetown D.C. However,
the The Beacon, (January 21, 1897)
issue has them being married at Friendly Hall, Helen, Maryland.
They had no children by 1910.
