There were several Johnson's in the settlement days of Englewood; Richard H. Johnson, was an oil agent who lived in the "Western Dist." of Englewood, in the 1880's with his young wife (probabaly a 2nd marriage), and several children. His homestead was located off present day Teaneck Rd. on land that had been owned by William Walter Phelps. By the 1910 Census, his widow (age 68) was living with three of their children and a servant on Booth Ave., as neighbors of Mayor Dan Fellows Platt [4].

A (Alvan?). J. Johnson

There was an even larger property owned by one A.J. Johnson as of 1876. but one can find no trace of him, or his family in Englewood/Teaneck in the census records of the time. There is a record of one Alvan J. Johnson in New York at the time who was in the book publishing business. (but there as no discernable tie to Englewood).
