  1. [S189] Henry A. Ford and Mrs. Kate B. Ford, compiler, History of Hamilton County Ohio with Illustrations and Biographical Sketches (Cleveland, Ohio: L. A. Williams & Co., 1881), Charles JOHNSON was born in Anderson township, December 11, 1819, and married Rebecca CORBLY October 17, 1841. He is the lather of five sons, four of whom are living. He is of Scotch extraction on his father's side, who came from Pennsylvania in 1790, and settled in this county. His mother is of Yankee descent, was Anna BRIDGES in her maiden days, and was the first white child who crossed over into Anderson township and settled permanently with her parents. Mrs. JOHNSON is of German origin on the line of her father, and from her mother received English blood. By trade Mr. JOHNSON is a carpenter, but is now particularly engaged in farming and fruit-growing. He is one of those men who obtained his knowledge outside of colleges and academies, but has that rare culture which comes from experience. During the early years of the war he raised a company of volunteers, was elected captain, and served with his men in the Seventieth Ohio regiment for three years. Among the township offices he held are such as justice, school director, and other positions, which show the estimation in which he is looked upon by the people.
