JOHN W. JOHNSON 


Camden Courier-Post * October 29, 1931

JOHN W. JOHNSON WILL CENTER OF COURT FIGHT

FInsisting that their father was in­fluenced by one of his sons when he made his will, three children of the late John W. Johnson, of Camden, are seeking to have Vice Chancellor Robert H. Ingersoll set aside the probating of the will.

Former Judge William T. Boyle, representing them, appeared yesterday before the vice chancellor on an appeal from a decree handed down by Judge Samuel M. Shay in Orphans Court, which admitted the disputed will to probate. John Y. Johnson, of  Camden, who was associated with his father in the late roofing business, is named the principal beneficiary. 

Arrayed against Johnson are his brothers, George E. and Charles L. Johnson, Camden, and his sister, Mrs. Carrie Shackelford. Haddonfield. Another daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth E. Bishop, Camden, is taking no part in the controversy. A fourth son, William H., the only one not married, died shortly after his father. He was also associated with him in the business.

Mr. Johnson was a slate roofer here many years. He resided at 408 Haddon Avenue and was fatally injured by an automobile January 12, 1929, while crossing the street near his home. He was 86 when he died.
