Johnson County, Illinois

Johnson County, located in the southern tip of Illinois, was created in 1812 out of Randolph County. 
It was named for Richard M. Johnson, a congressman from Kentucky.  Johnson served in the Army
in the War of 1812.  He later went on to be Vice President of the United States for one term, under
President Martin Van Buren.  He died in 1850, shortly after winning re-election to the U. S.
House of Representatives.
The original area of Johnson County included the present counties of Alexander, Johnson, 
Massac, Pulaski, and Union, as well as parts of Jackson, Pope, Saline, and Williamson counties. 
The county seat has been Vienna since 1818.
