Contributor: vcorn49 Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

A SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF JOSEPH ELMER JOHNSON Joseph Elmer Johnson was born at Georgetown, Utah on April 22, 1890. He was the eleventh child of Seth Johnson and Martha Stratton Johnson. His early life was spent in Georgetown and the immediate vicinity, in the usual manner of that of boys living in rural Mormon communities. He had unusually high aspirations, and as he developed into manhood, he felt that he was held in by he narrow limits of his home district, he did not like being confined to such a small area. Consequently, he left home when about eighteen and went to Idaho. He lived with his sister Rose for some time, but here again, he soon became discontented. Finally he decided to join the navy, for it seemed to offer him a way to the things he desired - - travel etc. so accordingly he went to California and enlisted. His hopes and aspirations were blasted by the dread disease, tuberculosis and he returned home a physical wreck. He was glad now to leave the “Wide World” with its shallow pleasures and come to the “Narrow” country town he had left years before. He declined very rapidly in health, and finally died in July 1922. During all his illness he was patient and did not complain, but made the best of everything as it came to him. He was buried at Georgetown Cemetery. - - - James A. Ott

Life timeline of Joseph Elmer Johnson

Joseph Elmer Johnson was born in 1890
Joseph Elmer Johnson was 15 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Joseph Elmer Johnson was 24 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Joseph Elmer Johnson died in 1922 at the age of 32
