William's second wife was Lula Elizabeth
Wathen. She was born on June 21,
1896 and died on January 9, 1989.
William is buried in the St. Aloysius RCC Cemetery in Leonardtown,
Maryland along with Lula Wathen. I do not show a listing for Mary
Adams. Parents of Lula were John T. Wathen & Margaret
While living in St. Mary's County Lula worked at the powder plant
located at the corner of Friendship and Three Notch road.
After her husband died Lula Johnson worked in Washington D.C. She
moved into the same apartment complex as William Alfred & Mary Etoyle Johnson and cared for their children. Pallbearers at
Lula's funeral were: Willie
A. Johnson, John R. Bowles, Jr. Robert T. Oliver, Ricky M. Johnson, Alan
J. Johnson and Toney E. Wheatley.
Alan J. Johnson tells me that because there was
a 25 year difference in age between Lula and William her brothers frowned
on her marriage. To elope they had to cross a river with the two
brothers in hot pursuit!
Children are as follows:
