Following information from letter from Clayton Davis dated 23 Jan 1988:

HISTORY: "I never saw Wm. A. Johnson but did see the house he and Grandma lived in when we lived in Tawas City, MI, 1911-13. In the early 1960's my oldest brother Howard and I searched the Tawas City Cemetery for his grave, but were unsuccessful because all of the real old stones had been removed and discarded. Courthouse records were not available either." [Fom a letter by Clayton Davis].
