Recollection by Dorothy Johns Thomas on April 9, 2003:
Now I will tell you what I know and remember about the family. I am 76, born in 1927, but when I was a child, Bryant and Hattie used to visit my grandparents. The farms were about a mile and half apart. They always came for meals and didn't use forks, but ate with table knives. They lived with their son Dillworth Lovejoy "Dillie" Johns and his wife, Minnie Hickox Johns. Dillie and Minnie has a lot of children, don't remember how many, but times were hard and my father told me years later that the reason Bryant and Hattie came to eat so much was so the family at home would have more. They lived in a small farm. My father also said that then they didn't have a stove, but cooked on the fireplace. Their place was about a half mile from the cemetery.
I should also mention that back in the oldest part of this cemetery there were a lot of stake markers that have deteoriated and we have lost a lot of history and a lot of names.
I think it was sometime in the 1940s that Dillie's family moved to Florida and I think that they all turned out well and prospered. I believe that the sons have all died, but two daughters are still living, Nora and Mary Jane, but don't know their married names nor exactly where they live. I believe all the sons have been brought back to Bethlehem for burial. Dillie had brothers, Sam and James Flemon, and there may have been more. Sam never married and died in a mental institution and Flemon married Mary Thrift. I may be kin to this part of the Johns family some generations back, but don't know the connection.

Samuel B. JOHNS
Sam B. Johns had taken to his bed with a very high fever. While sick his Mother Hattie Floyd Johns and his brother Fredrick Johns were attempting to give Sam some meds left for him by the local doctor at that time. Sam was so racked with the fever and then much so out of his head, that he thought that his mother and brother were both trying to kill him. Laying on a bedside table was a knife. Why this knife was there no one knows. Sam managed to get hold of this knife and he ended up stabbing his brother Fredrick in the back with it and nearly killing him. The local police hauled off Sam to Jail. It did not take them long to figure out, as the family had tried to tell them, that Sam was very sick. They released him back to the family to go home. Sam lived through the fever, but never was "quite right in the head" after that.
