Biography of George W. Johnson
Sagadahoc County, Maine Biographies





George W. Johnson was born and educated in Bath; was assistant postmaster several years; when the Patten Car Works were built he was bookkeeper for that company two years, then was elected treasurer of the People's Twenty five Cent Savings Bank, which position he held until January, 1886. Edward F. Johnson was employed at Swanton, Jameson & Co.'s for eighteen years, as was also Ernest A. Johnson for about nine years, as salesmen, thus gaining a thorough knowledge of the hardware trade, so valuable to them in carrying on their own business in the same line. The firm is composed of George W. Johnson, Edward F. Johnson, and Ernest A. Johnson, all of whom are active, enterprising, business men, dealing in general hardware and ship chandlery, both wholesale and retail, occupying their own store in Elliot House Block, which was first occupied by Kendall & Richardson, then by S D. Bailey & Co., who were succeeded by George Fisher, and then by Johnson Brothers in 1885.
