George served in Union army in civil war, 20th battery Indiana, his records state at age 20 he was 6 feet tall, brown hair, grey eyes, he was stationed at Bridgeport, Alabama, he lost his hearing in the war. He filled out a form for the army in 1900 stating he had 9 children, but only 7 living and listed them and marked the ones that were deceased. He died on his 50th wedding anniversary and Jane's 74th  Birthday from a heart attack, while in town transacting business with W.A. Swank, loan officer. His wife and family were planning a surprise anniversary party, and his death was a big shock to them all, even though he was being treated for heart problems.

Mary Arlene Johnson Taylor. Mary's death record says her father was Abner Johnson. I know Jane's maiden was also Johnson as she states in George's pension records she has went my name Jane Johnson since a child, and she is listed in all her Johnson siblings obituaries, so I don't know if she was ever married to Abner Johnson.
