     Almira Johnson was born circa 1826, daughter of Richard Collins Johnson and Frances Turner, in Sumner County, Tennessee.2,3      Almira Johnson was born on 10 April 1832, daughter of Richard Collins Johnson and Frances Turner, in Tennessee.4 She was also known as Elmira.4

     Almira Johnson died on 7 March 1920 in Lexington, Lafayette County, Missouri,4 and was buried in Country Farm Cemeterey, Lafayette County, Missouri.

     Her death certificate indicates she was a widow, but parents are unknown. The informant was C. L. Kinkaid. For this reason, I wonder about this identification.4
