James Johnson

 

(SwStr: t. 526)

 

James Johnson, built in 1856 at Jeffersonville, Ind., was one of several steamers purchased at Nashville, Tenn., late in 1861 by Lt. I. N. Brown, CSN, for conversion to a gunboat. She was not yet completed when the advance of the Union gunboats caused Brown to order her destruction by February 1862.
