Prayer Card and Obit for George T. JOHNSON b. 9 Aug 1910 in Sturgeon Lake,
MN to parents Anna and Charles JOHNSON, married to Martha SUISTE in Reno, NV
and moved to Weiser, ID in 1948 where he purchased his farm. His daughter
is identified as Zetta J. WOOD (husband - James K. WOOD) and grandchildren,
Vickie COALE; Gary WOOD; Tammy VANDERGRIFT; Sandie AMES; John WOOD; and
Theresa NEWKIRK all of Boise, ID. He is also survived by a niece Marcella
GUAY of Maple Valley, WA.
The album includes a total of 39 photographs including both portraits and
snap shots + printed copies of some of the portraits along with the prayer
card and obituary for George.
Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information
regarding the family:
Theodore JOHNSON was b. 1876 and died 1940 and is buried in the Pine Grove
Cemetery in Rock Creek, MN.
Anna JOHNSON was b. 9 May 1881 and died 24 Sept 1943 and is buried in the
Pine Grove Cemetery in Rock Creek, MN.
Floyd, George, Arnold, Edith, and Roland JOHNSON are the children of Charley
E. JOHNSON (1866-1919) and Anna NELSON (b. 1886). Floyd Eberhard or
Aberhard JOHNSON (1909-1985); George Theodore JOHNSON (b. 1910); Arnold R.
JOHNSON (b. 1912); Edith Elizabeth JOHNSON (b. 7 Sept 1913 in Pine, MN);
Roland Fridolph or Fredolph JOHNSON (1914-1979); and then the six child,
Gordon Clifford JOHNSON (1918-1918).
I did find burials which may be a match to Charles and Anna, though details
are slightly different:
Charles O. JOHNSON b. 20 Apr 1962 in USA and died 16 Jul 1916 in Pine Co.,
MN and buried in the Pine Grove Cemetery in Rock Creek, MN. His wife Anna
C. JOHNSON was b. 1 Jun 1963 in the USA and died 22 Nov 1958 in Pine Co., MN
and is buried with Charles in the Pine Grove Cemetery.
Floyd Aberhard or Eberhard JOHNSON was born 4 Apr 1909 in Cloquet or Pine,
MN and he married Loretta M. LESTER (b. 1912). Floyd died 16 Jul 1985 in
George T. JOHNSON was b. 9 Aug 1910 and died 16 Jun 1995 and is buried in
the Hillcrest Cemetery in Weiser, ID.
Edith Elizabeth JOHNSON married Lloyd Elwood SCHAUER (1908-2002) and they
had a daughter, Marjorie Ann SCHAUER (1930-2002).
Roland Fredolph JOHNSON was b. 12 Sept 1914 in Pine, MN and married Margaret
Ione BOWERS (1918-2008) and he died 17 Feb 1979 in Clarissa, MN.
Martha Helen SUISTE was b. 25 Nov 1910 in Butter Creek, OR to parents Joseph
Napoleon SUISTE (1864-1925) and Wilhelmina Josephine FIX (1870-1935).
Martha was one of 12 children born to this couple including, Louis Henry;
Andrew Joseph; Lucia or Lucille Cecelia; Rose Louisa; Leo Anthony; Agnes
Elizabeth; Albert Lawrence; Emily Regina; Martha Helen; Mary Patricia;
Esther Ann or Anna; and Edwin Francis SUISTE, all born between 1899 and
1914. Martha married George T. JOHNSON (1910-1995) on 14 Sept 1941. It
appears that Martha was previously married to Neil Orven POSTON (1907-1993).
Martha died 20 Sept 1999 in Boise, ID and is buried in the Hillcrest
Cemetery in Weiser, ID.
George and Martha had a daughter, Zetta Janet JOHNSON b. 27 Sept 1936 in
Leadville, CO. Zetta married James K. WOOD in 1957 and together they had 6
children. Zetta died 2 Jan 2017 in Boise, ID and is buried in the Morris
Hill Cemetery in Boise, ID. Since Zetta's birthdate is prior to their
marriage I am not sure of her parentage, could she be Martha's daughter from
previous marriage, or George's from a previous marriage, or an adoption, or
I am hoping to return the album to family and would appreciate you
contacting me at your earliest convenience regarding this family and the
