Frank Johnson was born on September 23, 1880, on a farm in Montgomery County, where he was educated in the country school and taught the "whys" and "wherefores" of tilling the soil. He remained on the farm several years with his parents, when the call of the city reached him and he responded by taking up his residence in Dayton. On September 26, 1902, he was appointed to the police force and later assigned to the position of ambulance driver, in which capacity he is now engaged. Mr. Johnson is a Modern Woodman. He has a wife, Edna, and three children, Arthur, Edward and Treva.
