Additional Information:
"Isaac V. D. R. Johnson was reared a farmer, and August 19, 1862, enlisted in the Sixty-ninth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, under Col. Tom Bennett, and served until honorably discharged, at Mobile, Alabama, July 1865. He was wounded at Baker's Creek Mills, Mississippi, and also fought at Richmond, Kentucky, Chickasaw Bluff, Arkansas Post, Champion Hills, Jackson, Mississippi, and many minor engagements. . . .

Mr. Johnson became a minister of the Christian Church in 1871, has had regular work since that time, and has preached more than 1,000 funeral sermons. As a soldier he was brave and fearless. As a Christian he is always found at his post of duty. Hospitable to a friend and stranger, a kind husband and father, and ever willing to aid in any laudable undertaking that has for its aim the elevation and improvement of society, he has won the respect and esteem of the entire community. He was elected Treasurer of Randolph County in 1888 and served two years; is a member of Masonic Lodge, No. 223, at Farmland, is a member of the G.A.R. at the same place, and is a Republican. He is the owner of a fine farm of eighty acres, on which he resides, and also considerable property in Farmland."
