1824 - 1828

Henry Johnson and Elizabeth Rousby Key Johnson had a daughter and possibly one son. 

Emily Louisa Johnson, their daughter, is buried in a tomb in St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Thibodaux, La.  This is quite surprising, since Henry was such a devoted Episcopalian.

Also buried in this tomb are Elizabeth Rousby Key Johnson's brother, Philip Barton Key, her sister Louisa Emily Key and a nephew William Thompson Key.  The tomb is not maintained.
