Friendship Church, Saluda, Polk Co, NC).

 

 

Notes for JOHN S. JOHNSON:

[WFT Vol. 7, Ed. 1, Tree #0974, Date of Import: May 1, 1997]:

 

He was raised largely by his grandparents. His father, Leonard, was in poor health and also traveled to find work as a brick mason. John appears in the 1850 - 1870 censuses in the home of Elijah DALTON, with his mother and sisters present in some years. The home was in present-day Polk County near Howard Gap Road in the earlier years, and perhaps Warrior Road later on. The Warrior Road property is probably where his first cousin, Leonard Douglas JOHNSON, later operated a dairy -- the 73 acres referred to in deeds as "the place where Elijah DALTON lives." That land passed through the hands of many in the LANKFORD, DALTON, HENDERSON and JOHNSON families. He had acquired his own farmland by the time he married Evelyn STATON. His first few land acquisitions were on Cove Creek and Capps Creek. Part of the land was in Polk and part in Henderson Counties. At various times he owned land on Little Cove Creek, Green Creek, and Saluda Township totalling several hundreds of acres. He also owned lots in Saluda and Hendersonville. In 1890 he was a trustee acquiring land for a new Babtist church in Saluda. After the death of his first wife, Evelyn, his sister-in-law, Viola TORRENCE STATON, wife of "U. G." (Ulysses Grant STATON) helped take care of his children for about a year. He then married Clementine ARLEDGE of Mill Spring. They lived on the same farm, but in 1900 he bought a large farm on Shaw's Creek at Horse Shoe, five miles west of Hendersonville. They moved there in 1904 and lived there until they died. At one time he was a director of a Hendersonville bank, which went under. He felt obligated to help the depositors, and gave generously of his own money to help them recover their losses.

Children of CLEMENTINE ARLEDGE and JOHN JOHNSON are:

i. ANNIE BELL10 JOHNSON, b. 11 Feb 1894, Saluda, Polk Co, North Carolina; was a nurse; d. 12 May 1965, Horse Shoe, Henderson Co, NC; Bur. Friendship Bapt Church, Saluda, Polk Co, NC.

ii. GOELET CYRUS "SAM" JOHNSON, b. 06 Apr 1895, Saluda, Polk Co, North Carolina; d. 11 Jun 1987, Mountain Home, Johnson City, TN (Bur. Friendship Church, Saluda, Polk Co, NC).

 

Notes for GOELET CYRUS "SAM" JOHNSON:

He never married.

[WFT Vol. 7, Ed. 1, Tree #0974, Date of Import: May 1, 1997]

 

It is said that he was named for his father's friend, Dr. E. B. GOELET, the first doctor in Saluda, NC. However, he spelled his name in the manner of the famous actor, William Gillette, who occasionally summered in Saluda. The Johnson Bible gives his name as "C. G." His sister, Ola, gave his name as Goelet Silas in her will. He served under Eddie RICKENBACKER in World War I and was a member of Rickenbacker's Flying Circus before joining his brother, Tom, in the real estate business in Florida.

My Daddy had a beautiful singing voice and if the opportunity had presented itself he could have had a career in music. His voice was so beautiful that people in the congregation sitting around him would not sing in order to listen to him. My mother also had quite a voice and studied privately. Well, they passed on their musical genes and my brother and I both had a career in music. He was a music producer in Nashville and I taught choral music for almost 30 years and am now teaching private voice students. I am a wedding director now and I am never bored.
