GENERAL NOTES

Toensing, and the Minnesota Legislative Manual, 1862 list his last name as Johnson. The St. Paul Pioneer and Democrat, January 7, 1862 lists Johnston.

He came to Minnesota in 1856.

The St. Paul newspaper traditionally listed members who won the election with party affiliation (Democrat or Republican). In 1862 they only identified the Democrats, the assumption is that the rest were Republicans. Since he wasn't identified as a Democrat, the assumption is that he was a Republican. (St. Paul Pioneer and Democrat, January 7, 1862)

Total Days Served: 364
