Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 756, Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"RICHARD M. JOHNSON was born in Starke County, Ohio, July 1, 1840, and is one of nine children born to ELI and JANE (SOUTH) JOHNSON, viz.: RICHARD, CATHERINE (deceased), WILLIAM (deceased), MARGARET, THADDEUS, ELIZABETH, JULIA, SARAH (deceased) and SCHUYLER. The father brought RICHARD to this township when the latter was eight years of age, and here reared him to farming. In the spring of 1864, RICHARD enlisted in the One Hundred and Fifty-fifth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and was in the service about eleven months. He was married, November 8, 1866, to CAROLINE MOORE, who has given birth to three children - WILLIAM, JENNIE (deceased), and MELVIN. In 1870, MR. JOHNSON moved to his present home, two miles southeast of Monterey. His farm is level and fertile, and he has erected upon it a comfortable dwelling and fine, large barn. He is one of the early settlers of the township, and is highly respected as a farmer and citizen."
