He and his brother, Judge Alfred Johnson, were active in all manner of Belfast's businesses and politics. Ralph Johnson was a representative in Maine's first legislature and later served as Belfast's first Mayor in 1853. Alfred Johnson's granddaughter, Louise, married Belfast native, Admiral William V.
