Description

Peter Johnson, known by his friends as Uncle Pete, was born in Kentucky on April 4, 1847. He was a familiar face in Madison and always had a smile for everyone he met. He was a laborer and handyman all his life. Pete died December 12, 1950 reaching 103 year of age. That, in itself, is quite an accomplishment.
