    • WILLIAM JOHNSON MURDER - SEEKING INFORMATION

      I am seeking information on a murder. The victim was William Johnson who lived at Park, KY. The date of the murder was April 22, 1875. I am seeking the name of the murderer, where the murder took place, reason for the murder and the possible murder of the individual who killed William Johnson. The known facts are:

      William Johnson was born 12 March 1849; he was married to Josephine Creel/Creal who was born 13 June 1853, died 9 July 1876.

      William was the son of Jonathan Johnson who was shown on the 1870 Metcalfe County KY census, born March 1802, died 10 Jan 1893. He was married to Emily Yates Johnson who was born 29 Jan 1810 and died 3 May 1900.

      William and Josephine had three children; her will is on file in Metcalfe Co, Will Book 1, p. 25.

      The late Governor Louie Nunn knew about the murder and was planning on dictating this information to one of his relatives in Edmonton, but he moved from Park and then died. Governor Nunn's sister lives in the house where William Johnson bled to death and supposedly the blood stains are still visible.

      Since Park KY is located at the junction of Barren, Metcalfe and Hart Counties, I have been unable to locate any records to date or any family member who still has memories of the murder. It is not known in Metcalfe County and with the transfer of all Circuit Court records up to the 1980's in Barren and other counties, I cannot check for any trial information.
