Sandra, I found land like he owned 284 acres of land in different plots in Faithorn MI, He is listed as CC Johnson on each of the 4 plots. It seems like in Wisconsin there was also a CC Johnson who owned land in Harmony Wisconsin in 1896 and right below his says Caroline Johnson, which I thought strange with his wife at times being listed as Caroline.
On his obituary it said he was 86 at death which would have made his birthdate 1856, the photo on the obituary page shows a vehicle with no snow on the ground and it talks about an agency coming to Rhinelander Wisconsin on July 3, 1942. It also showed his name at the heading as Charles Johnson, but the first line of the obit says Charles Johnston and only spelled that way, The mention of his sons shows their last name as Johnston also but it gives his birth date as Dec 15, 1855 on the obit?
Well, one day we you and I will break this mistery. Thanks Rita
