Tombstone Tuesday - 22 June 2010 - Louis Johnson

Evergreen Cemetery, Oconto, Oconto, Wisconsin; May 2006

Louis Christian Johnson, b: 23 May 1888; d: 26 June 1894 (116 years ago this week),
son of John Johnson (AKA Hans Hansen) and Mary S. Jensen Johnson (my great-grandparents)
Had Louis lived, he would have been my mother's uncle. His death was the third in a three-year streak of losses for my great-grandmother, who lost her husband and another son in the 2 previous years, causing her to be very bitter throughout her life, something she allegedly regretted on her death bed.
