  • Notes 
    • Washington Lafayette Jolley and John Osler were probably the first Mormon missionaries that the Johnson family encountered in 1852(per "Reminiscences of E. W. East).

      Henry G. Moyle was probably another early missionary.

      ----------------------------------------------------

      According to the Johnson-Greer-Davis Connection book "After John’s death Nancy was back with her clan ready to strike the trail when the call came from President Brigham Young to go to southern Idaho and northern Utah." John Sprouse died 27 Oct 1858 and on the 27th of June 1860 Nancy is still in the 6th Ward in SLC according to the 1860 census. We don't have record of Nancy north of SLC until the 1870 census.

      ----------------------------------------------------

      "The Community of Laketown has always maintained a belief in the value of formal education. The first organized school was held in 1869, and conducted by Nancy Greer Johnson, three months out of the year. Later, around 1876, a bright, well educated young man, Robert Spence, came to Laketown and began teaching."
