Juda Johnson

The Gazette
June 5, 1895

Last Wednesday morning, a negro woman named Juda Johnson, was found dead in her bed on the farm of Mr. J. M. Underwood, one mile east of town. Thinking she had been a victim of foul play the Coroner, Dr. W. W. Barnes, summoned a jury and investigated the case. The body bore no marks of violence and the witness, another negro woman, who lived in the same cabin with the deceased testified she was well on going to bed Thursday night. The verdict of the jury was that her death was occasioned by heart failure.
