He was ordained by Bishop Griswold at Newport, 8 July, 1813, served for a year as curate at Grace church, New York city, and removed thence to Newtown, New York, where he was rector until 1826. In 1826 he built, on his own ground and at his own expense, St. John's church, Brooklyn, and served it, without remuneration, for more than twenty years, His personal history is interwoven with the interests of the city of Brooklyn. To his exertions is due the opening of the important thoroughfare of Myrtle avenue. On the petition asking for it was his single name, and, though he was opposed by 400 remonstrants, his energy and resolution prevailed. In 1847 Mr. Johnson established a mission church, St. Michael's, which he served until his death.
