    Notes 
    • There were at least two Willis Johnson in Texas in the 1840s. Peter Hansborough Bell, the governor of Texas, issued a proclamation in October 1851 stating that murder had been committed on the body of Willis Johnson on or about 25 October 1848. In 1859 Sarah Allday, the oldest child of Willis and Nancy Johnson filed a suit stating that her father had died on or about 20 December 1853.

      Some of the documents in this collection pertain to one of the "Willis Johnsons" living in Texas in the 1830-1850's time period. Everything that has been found has been posted on this site in order to aid in the collective research of all interested parties. As evidence is found to determine documents that refer to the Willis Johnson that died in 1848 they will be removed from this collection.

    Notes 
    • Lycurgus Johnson was born in Brennam, Washington County, Texas, August 25, 1844 to Nancy Reddick Greer and Willis Johnson. His father died when Lycurgus was about 8 years old. Mormon missionaries converted his mother and some of his older siblings in 1854 and the next year most of the family traveled by wagon to Salt Lake, Utah. Lycurgus lived with his mother, brother Alfred, sisters Victoria and Nancy, and cousin Adeline York in the Greater Salt Lake 6th Ward until after 1860. The family then moved to the Bear Lake area of northern Utah and lived there for about 10 years. Lycurgus married Cora Isabella Davis 1 March 1867 and had their first child Willis Lycurgus in St. Charles, Idaho on the northwest end of Bear Lake. The family moved to the south end of Bear Lake and there Willis died in September 1870. The couple had seven children in the Bear Lake area but only Warren, Alfred, and Snellen lived past the age of 2. Lycurgus was appointed Constable of the Lake Precinct of Rich County on August 1, 1870. Having been asked by Church leaders, in 1878 they moved along with his brother Alfred Summers Johnson, Joseph Hardy Sr., and Allen Davis families to Ashley Valley or the area of present day Vernal, Utah. Nancy Reddick Greer Johnson Sprouse, the mother of Lycurgus, was killed in a tragic accident on the way to Ashley Valley. In 1879 excitement with the Indians forced families to move their cabins to Ashley Town which was located 2.5 miles northwest of Vernal. Lycurgus was about 35 years old at this time. He opened one of the first stores in Ashley Town. He became the second postmaster of the valley in September 1879 and was also elected the first sheriff on August 2, 1880 and served for two terms. He served three terms as Selectman, 1882 to 1888 while acting as Deputy United States Marshal. Four children were born in Ashley Town including Clarence, Nancy, Cora and Hazel. They lived in Ashley Town for nine years. Lycurgus built the 2nd flour mill in Ashley Valley in 1885 which operated for over 20 years. After 7 years he finished building the ?Rock House? in 1888 from large stones cut from Ashley Canyon. The home stood on 19 acres complete with excellent irrigation and built close to the flour mill. The family then moved to Maeser and lived there for twenty years. He moved his store from Ashley Town to Vernal and sold general merchandise and furniture under the name L. Johnson & Sons as all his sons participated in his business ventures. Lycurgus represented Ashley Valley in the Territorial Assembly in 1890 and also in the Constitutional Convention in 1894 and became one of the 99 signers of the Utah constitution in 1895. In the late 1890?s Lycurgus won vast contracts including duty to supply the government with wood at $3.50 per cord and 80,000 pounds of bran at $1.30 per hundred. He was appointed the general contractor for the building of the Stake Tabernacle in Vernal in 1900 and completed that work in 1907. In 1905 Lycurgus was elected Mayor of Vernal and filled the office January 2, 1906. By the end of this life he had acquired considerable real estate and wealth through vast enterprises including commerce, stock, water interests, and mining. He died June 29, 1908 and is buried at the Rockpoint Cemetery in Vernal.

  • Notes 
    • "Lycurgus "Curg" Johnson was a Texan whose family had migrated to Bear Lake, Idaho. In 1878 LDS Church officials asked the Johnson clan to resettle in Ashley Valley. Besides operating several businesses in the valley, Johnson also served as the first elected sheriff of Uintah County, a selectman and a deputy U.S. Marshal. He represented the county in the 1890 territorial assemble, attended the Constitutional Convention in 1894 and was elected Vernal City mayor in 1905. Johnson also served as Ashley's second postmaster.1 "Johnson, a well-known entrepreneur opened a general merchandise store with two of his sons, Alfred and Snellen." About 1880 he purchased the Hatch store in Ashley Center, located on the southeast corner of the town's main intersection. He also owned and operated a flour mill, which he built in 1885...2 and one in Maeser in 1888.4 "In the fall of 1893 the Uintah Milling & Flume company was founded by Dry Fork and Ashley Valley water users. The company was begun with $26,000 in their coffers" and with Lycurgus Johnson as president.3

I Recently purchased a home in Hagerman Idaho. The previous residents left a lot of old items and this weekend I stumbled upon a ledger that John Lycurgus Johnson documented some of his monthly expenses in, what appears to be a loan settlement t with Snellen, and little notes here and there about cows that he purchased,etc. I was exited to come upon this myfamilyonline page to learn some history of the man that the ledger belonged to. This is wonderful!

What an appropriate comment to be made on Memorial Day! Lycurgus is one of the people in history that stands out because of his key role in the development of Utah as a civil servant, congressman and businessman. Over 100 years later his dealings are still affecting our lives! Thank you for your comment.
