Death: Oct. 30, 1836 Kirtland Lake County Ohio, USA

Daughter of Ezekiel Johnson and Julia Ellis Hills. Married Joseph J. Clark on Feb. 10, 1827 in Grafton, MA. In early 1830’s Nancy was thrown from a horse and her thigh bone was broken close to its hip-socket and the doctors said that she would be a cripple for life. “In the summer elder Jared Carter, a man then of mighty faith, came with other elders to our house, and seeing sister Nancy upon her crutches commanded her in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to leave her crutches and walk, which she at once did, and never again did she use them, although for years she had borne no weight upon her broken joint.” [Benjamin F. Johnson, My Life’s Review, p. 11] “Nancy, my eldest sister, who had ministered to us in infancy and childhood, who had taught us our first lessons both in the Sabbath and day schools, who had ever been as both mother and sister, always self-sacrificing, and uncomplaining through all the periods of her lameness and feeble health, --seemed now fading away in consumption….She continued to sink until the 30th of October, when, like others, she bade us all adieu, leaving us her life’s example as a testimony to the truth of the gospel.” [Ibid, p. 19]

Buried in the little orchard on the hill behind Johnson home in Kirtland.
