Matt Johnson was imprisoned on 11 May 1918 at Montana St. Pen. in Deer Lodge, Montana, convicted of sedition, age 33, born Finland, lumberjack, 5'9", 160 lbs, sentenced to 2.5 to 5 years. His crime had been committed in Missoula. He had been in Montana for seven years, working in different lumber camps.

U of Montana students are seeking a pardon and want to locate and inform his descendants. Does anyone know of this man?

Thanks for your help.
