Son of Joel H. Johnson and Annie Johnson. Baptized in May, 1842, by John Smith and migrated to Utah in 1848 (F. D. Richards' Company).

He was acquainted with Joseph Smith, who stayed at the family home many times and he endured the persecution of those early days.

From 1851- 53 he lived at Cedar City, Utah; one of the first settlers in Iron county. He was called on an Indian mission and for many years after that he worked diligently in settling the valleys along the Rio Virgen and the Muddy.

In 1858 he went out with Col. Wm. H. Dame's exploring company to explore the desert west of Utah, and Bro. Johnson led some of the party as far west as Death Valley.

The same year he led an exploring party and built the road into Upper Virgen valley, locating the town of Virgen City, where he lived for fourteen years. While a resident he acted as presiding Elder, acting Bishop and Bishop's counselor.

In 1871 he moved to Kanab, Kane county, Utah, where he was first counselor to the Bishop; he also served three terms as county commissioner, acted as town president for several years, was superintendent of waterworks three years and road commissioner ten years.

In January, 1856, while living at Cedar City, he married Mandana R. Merrill, who bore him ten children and in October, 1860, he married Conradina A. Mariger, who bore him sixteen children. In 1889 he married Mrs. Bodel M. Jensen, a widow with six children, who also bore him one child.
