Mrs. George H. Johnson

One of the prominent pioneer families of Cedar county, is the Wilkinson family.  Philip Wilkinson came to Iowa from Indiana in 1837 and entered land located near the present town of Tipton.  Here he built a cabin in which he lived alone for nine years, cutting the forest and tilling the prairie ground.  In 1845 he was married to Elizabeth Anderson.  The original farm has remained continuously in the family, being now in the possession of Philip Wilkinson's daughter, Mrs. Drusy Moffett and her son, Perry Moffett.  The subject of this sketch, Ella Wilkinson Johnson, of Iowa City, was born April 6, 1857, the daughter of these Iowa pioneers.  She was educated in the public schools of Tipton and the Iowa State University.  In January, 1882, she was married at Anamosa, Iowa, to George Henry Johnson.  They have one son, Ralph Wilkinson Johnson.  She is a prominent church woman in the United Brethren denomination.  She is president of the Iowa state branch of the Woman's Missionary Association.  She is a member of the Iowa Woman's Club of Iowa City and has served as its president.  She has also served the Toledo Woman's Club as its president.  Mrs. Johnson is a widely read woman, one who studies and keeps abreast with the times, although she is inclined to be conservative in her views.
