  • Will, : Unlike his brother, Joshua Johnson avoided politics and entered into business in 1764 which took him to London in 1771. During the Revolutionary War year's, he and his family lived in France because Joshua was not a loyalist. After the war, he returned to London and was the first American consul and their residence was a gathering place for Americans. He entertained on a lavish scale and his home was most grand and impressive. It was at this home where his daughter, Louisa Johnson met and was courted by John Quincy Adams.
    Joshua Johnson arrived back in America during the autumn of 1797 and was virtually bankrupt. Critics blamed his wife for their lavish lifestyle and he received little help/sympathy even from relatives. Finally, in 1801 his brother Baker Johnson, took pity on him and took Joshua to his home in Fredericktown, MD where he died in 1802 his mind and body broken in spirit.
    will of Joshua Johnson - filed at Washington D. C. Dec. 27, 1803
    In the name of God, Amen, the testament and last will of Joshua Johnson, of the City of Washington, made the 12th day of December in the year of our Lord, 1801, as follows:
    I give and bequeth to my wife the use of all my household goods during her life, with power to dispose of the same to my children, or any of them , in such parts or proportion as she may think fit. I also give to my wife $800 yearly during her life.

    I give to my children the whole and residue of my real and personal estate to be equally divided among them, but as several of my children are under age, I empower my executors, to sell at public or private sale, all or any of my lands, and the monies or securities thus produced, I direct shall go to my children equally; this power to continue until my youngest child comes to 21 years of age.

    Executors: son Thomas Baker, and sons-in-law, John Quincy Adams and Walter Hellon
