Jaine Johnson. Cairo, was born
March .5lh, lsJS, near Vienna, Clinton
eounly, Ohio. His patents were John
and F.ll.abelh (MeKifler) Johniou. His
lather w as a contractor, and in that ca
pacity built a number of very tine Mruc
turei in the "neighborhood ol Y'lenna.
His grandfather's name was Scarlett
Johnon, a native of Virginia,
in which state he owned a
huge plantation. 1 he great-grandfather
ol our subject, who was also named Scar
lett, and who served as a soldier In fhe
revolutionary war, was a native ol the
North of Ireland and settled in Virginia
aliout the year 1770. His mother's ali
enators were also of jotch-Irish origin,
having settled iu irglnla about the same
period, her grandfather being likewise a
revolutionary soldier. His father died
when'our subject was but two and a half
years ol age, leaving a widow and two
cnildren, a on and daughter, of whom
he was the eldest. His sister died at the
age ot seventeen, leaving bim ole survi
vor. His father lelt behind bim
but little property, so that be
was thrown upon hi? own resources at a
very tender age. lie was educated at
the common school at (lilisboroin hit na
tive state ; studied the ordinary Eng
lish branches and mathematics ; was an
apt scholar, and early manifested traits
ef mechanical genius. Having lound a
preference for mercantile life, at the age
of seventeen years he entered the dry
goods store ol William C. Huntley, of
Lynchburg, Ohio, where he remained
five years, and became not only an ac
complished salesman but thoroughly ac
quainted with the rules aud prin
ciples of commerce. While in
this employment the subject ol
Western railoads began to receive eonsid.
erable attention, and Irom hearing the
subject discussed with enthusiasm, he
formed the purpose of lieeoining a rail
road man ; and the success which has
marked his career in this rapacity shows
that he did not mistake his calling. The
llillsboro and Cincinnati railroad was
then being built, and his employer, Mr.
Huntley, being an officer of the com
pany, (assistant treasurer) he waa olten
