Horton, the oldest of the 5 brothers involved in the founding and management of the company, followed in his dadís footsteps by going into the oil business in Warren and Sheffield counties, Pennsylvania. The next youngest son was Homer, who actually founded the Johnson Oil Refining Company. He went to Princeton for a year, thought it was a waste of time and wanted to go into business and join his brother in the oil fields. Younger brothers Ralph, James and Isaac were still 'finding themselves' and were initially along for the ride. The Johnson Oil compamy ran from 1929 - 1956 before it was bought out.
