JOHNSON, Oliver and Matilda home

Home of Oliver Bryson & Matilda McCullough Johnson. They are seated in rocking chairs.  Oliver B. Johnson, Sr., died in May of 1900 of Typhoid Fever at the age of 59.  I believe this house is on Putnam/Clay County, IN line.  (circa 1890's)

Mary Ellen Johnson Foreman,  Bertha Johnson Lowdermilk & Alma Johnson  are most likely the standing young women.  The small boy Wm. Henry Foreman, Jr., would the son of Mary Ellen Johnson who was a widow at the time.
