Step Back in Time: Feb. 6, 2013


In 1897 he was appointed by the late Judge Lynn J. Arnold as clerk of the Surrogate’s Court. He was clerk of the Otsego County Board of Supervisors for a period of four years, and in 1917 he was elected county treasurer.

In 1924 he was named postmaster at Cooperstown, serving until 1936.

Constantly devoting time and energy in advancing the welfare of the community, he held many places of honor in various groups and organizations.

Mr. Johnson is very proud of his connection with the Grange. He said that we must not forget to say (“whatever else you want to say”) that he is a life member of the Fly Creek Grange.

Mrs. Robert Johnson will hold “open house” between 3 and 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, in honor of her father-in-law’s 90th birthday, at 74 Fair St.
