My name is Cheryl Johnson Ludecke. I have a great uncle who was named Arthur Johnson. He was the son of the US Consul to Germany, Charles F. Johnson. Arthur was born in 1874 in Cincinnati, Ohio and died in 1954 in Berlin, Germany. Could this be the Arthur Johnson who you are looking for?

Editor's Note: I thank Cheryl for her information. I can't establish a relationship at this time, but perhaps this information from Cheryl may be the key to the mystery. If you can help, please contact us.

     If you search for "Arthur Johnson +aviation" using Google, (11-24-10), you will find about 28,700 links! None of them appear to be relevant to this pioneer aviator.

I can't find anything about his dates of birth or death.
