Birth: Death:

Jan. 14, 1846 Apr. 20, 1884

Moses H. Johnson was honored with the unveiling of a Texas Ranger Memorial Cross at his grave in Eimwood Cemetery this past weekend. The dedication ceremony was conducted by family members and representatives of the Former Texas Ranger Association and the Former Texas Rangers Foundation, which furnishes the crosses. The Texas Historical Foundation provides grant funds for the crosses. Moses H. Johnson is the father of Moses Johnson, who created the Johnson Poultry Ranch in Bowie. Vicki Lovette Jones, great great granddaughter of the senior Johnson, brought the weicome and made introductions. Deanna Johnson Woods, great granddaughter presented the family history summarized below. Moses H. Johnson was born Jan. 14, 1846 in Texas, possibly Navarro County. He was the son of James Allen Johnson and the former martha Jane Parker. He was the twin of Reuben R, and one of seven children born of this union. Moses H. was named for his paternal grandfather, Moses E. Johnson. The family lived in Mississippi for a few years, before moving to Arkansas, then on to Texas. They moved to Dresden in Navarro County near Corisicana. His father was the first sheriff of Corsicana, Texas, while his mother died in child birth in 1849. Eight children were born of this union.

Moses was probably about seven when they moved to Fort Belknap and grew to manhood at this location. In June 1864, he enlisted in the Confederate Army under the command of Lt. Charles Neuhaus, Company B. Young County. Moses met a pretty, red headed woman from New Harp, Texas, named Sarah Elizabeth Freeman. They married at O'Neal Station in Montague County on Oct. 28, 1864. The couple had six children, two which died in childhood. They lived near New Harp, where Moses made a living as a stockman and farmer. Their life on the frontier was very hard and again they had to deal with Indian raids. In 1867, the Indians kidnapped his nephew, Dick Freeman and in the spring of 1870, the Indians stole his fine race horse, Old Yellow Boy. Moses Johnson's twin brother, Reuben, 20, was massacred by the Indians at the Elm Creek Indian Raid #2 on July 17, 1867 at Fort Belknap, along with two other young men. On April 20, 1872, Moses enlisted as a private in company U, Minute Men of Montague County, under the command of John Willingham of the Texas Rangers. He was discharged Aug. 20, 1872 with a total of only eight days of active service. The last Indian raid in Montague County proved to be in August of 1872. Moses moved his family from New Harp to Victoria (Queen's Peak), then to the railhead at the new community of Bowie. Here he assisted on the first


grade of the Fort Worth and Denver Railroad. He died April 20, 1884 at the age of 38. Family stories indicate he died of pneumonia. Retired Texas Ranger Phil Ryan gave remarks on behalf of the Texas Rangers, Company C. "Eight days of service back then was probably worth 10 years now," Ryan said. Richard Gardner, great grandson, unveiled the Texas Ranger Cross, while Claire Lovette McWilliams, great great granddaughter laid the wreath. Gary Johnson, great grandson, read the Texas Ranger prayer. Zachary McCaig closed the ceremony playing "Amazing Grace" on the fiddle and then taps on the trumpet overlooking the grave site.
