William Johnson upon being freed became a barber apprentice in Natchez town. William’s brother-in-law had a barbershop which he took over in 1830 and later on got married to Amy Battles. They had eleven children. Amy was a free person and just like William was black (National Humanities Center Resource Toolbox, 2007). William Johnson went on to operate several barbershops, owned land, and rented buildings. He also had a bathhouse and regularly loaned white and black people money which was paid at an interest. Like other free blacks in the South, William Johnson owned slaves and at times sold them too. The diary is a record of his daily personal endeavors, majorly about the payment of his debts, the items he bought and the running of his family. William was murdered by a free black man, Baylor Winn, with whom they had a boundary conflict. Despite his murderer being identified, he escaped prosecution since according to his evidence, he was a white man, and so no black man could testify against him (Humanities Center Resource Toolbox, 2007).
