As the profile is unsourced it isn’t likely. Are you able to add any that might help?

Barbara, There was a Theodore Johnson living in Clarenden Twp., Orleans, New York in 1890 who was a Civil War veteran.  He had his right leg shot off.("United States Census of Union Veterans and Widows of the Civil War, 1890," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K83F-P95 : 12 March 2018), Theodore Johnson, 1890; citing NARA microfilm publication M123 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 338,214.) I'll see if I can research and add more info to Theodore Johnson (Johnson-22668) to see if they are the same men.

Please check his profile, now that I have added info.  I have confirmed that he is the Theodore Johnson who lost his right leg at Cold Harbor in the Civil War. I even found his obit and his picture. I was not able to find anything showing that he was called "Tip."
