Biography:Josiah Stoddard Johnston (November 24, 1784 - May 19, 1833) was a United States Representative and Senator from Louisiana. Born in Salisbury, Connecticut, he moved with his father to Kentucky in 1788, and returned to Connecticut to attend primary school. He graduated from Transylvania University (Lexington, Kentucky) in 1802, studied law, was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in Alexandria, Louisiana (then the Territory of Orleans).
