At breaking out of the Civil War he went to Chicago and practiced his profession, when he was taken sick with typhoid fever. After a lingering ssickness he died at the home of his mother in Binghamton, on July 25, 1865.

Mr. Johnson's predominating characteristics were his love for his family and regard for the rightss of everybody. It wouldf require quite a book to record his acts of love and courage. An instance: When he was seventeen years old, on a Sunday afternoon, a man was drowning in the Chenango River, near his home in Binghamton. Two men went in to save him, but were themselves drowning, when young Chittenden stripped and went in and brought one of them to shore. A reward was offered him, but refuse. A little instance of his love for his family: Before going West, his brother Georrge was living twenty miles away with a farmer. He walked the distance, twenty miles and back, to see him before he should go. Charles Hatch Johnson
