The Johnson Cemetery is located on land that was originally owned by John Stoker. The land was deeded to Joseph House Johnson and the cemetery established in the 1820's. The first known burial was Joseph H. Johnson, the three-year old son of Joseph House Johnson, in 1823. The land lies on the eastern bank of the Great Miami River. Many tombstones were washed away or destroyed in the Great Flood of 1913. The land closest to the road and farthest from the river is now used as a pauper's cemetery.
