      Johnson, Henry Mitchell, a member of the Mormon Battalion, Company A,
      was born July 12, 1821, in Dearborn, Dearborn Co., Indiana, a son of
      Cornelius Johnson and Nancy Johnson. He emigrated with his mother to
      Jackson County, Missouri, in 1832, was baptized in the summer of 1833,
      and in November of the same year was driven with his mother from
      Jackson County, being forced to travel bare-footed over the frozen
      prairie. In 1848 he was again exiled, and while on this journey
      westward, he enlisted in the Mormon Battalion and marched to
      California. He arrived in Utah Oct. 24, 1848. In the spring of 1849 he
      was ordained an Elder, and in September, 1850, he married Louisa
      Frances Clark. Bro. Johnson was a minute man in all the Indian wars,
      was a lieutenant in the "Life Guards," and in April, 1856, he was
      called on a mission to Carson Valley, and got as far as Ogden, when he
      was taken sick. He returned to Salt Lake City and died March 20, 1857.
