April 1, 1899 "A telegram came from San Antonio, Texas, Thursday morning announcing the death of Mrs. F. D. Johnson, and the news has cast a general feeling of gloom over the community, for Mrs. Johnson was known and loved by all. She, with her daughter, Miss Agness Newell, went to Texas in January, hoping that under the mild skies of the southern climate she might at least alleviate the evils of consumption, which had already assumed an alarming form. Her friends here could hardly hope for her recovery and were partly prepared for the news of her death. Miss Newell has been a faithful attendant at the side of her mother during all her latest sickness.
One of the saddest features of her death is the fact that she was so far from her husband and home that it was Impossible to got word to Mr. Johnson in time for him to reach her before she passed away. The remains will be brought to Wray and interred in the cemetery here Monday afternoon.
A full obituary notice will be given next week."
