Margaret Johnson Patterson Bartlett
* ? * ? *
Margaret Johnson Patterson Bartlett, great-granddaughter of Andrew Johnson, is the donor of this memorial and tribute to her illustrious ancestor. As heir to the Johnson estate following the death of her mother and father, Andrew Johnson Patterson, grandson of the president, Margaret carried the Johnson torch for the ensuing forty years, waging a constant crusade of dedication to the preservation and perpetuation of the name and political career of her great-grandfather. An oft-expressed wish, the crowning jewel in her final tribute was that this statue mark a daily visible memorial to Andrew Johnson, 17th President of the United States, and so Margaret's legacy to Greenville and Greene County is this ageless image, an unsurpassed legend in American history, to all mankind for generations upon generations yet unborn.
