My Notes On This Group: The Roman Empire was the first to use troops all over the world they left blood groups ever where they went from Countries of Africa to England: The Roman Empire was one of the VAST spreading Empires in the World to first use troops of other Countries it conquered. The use of using other troops from Conquered Countries spread with each developing Empire.

In 1752 the new year began to be counted from Jan 1. Before that it ran from March 26-March 25, Julian Calender changed. So a date in July 1750 would be earlier in the same "year" as one in Feb 1750 (which once 1752 rolled around, would be thought of as the next year). From: Barbara Schenck

1757: James Sanders: The area of Johnston County in which James Sanders lived is in what is now Wake County, divided from Johnston County, NC in 1771.  The grant for 1757 was issued to a James Sanders, 260 acres on Cow Branch joining Samuel Smith's line and Martin Johnston's (Johnson?) line.  The 1761 grand was on both sides of Middle Creek joining Joshua Steven's line, Hardy Sanders line and his own improvements.  This grant could have been made to the young James Sanders, as no record of the settlement of the Estate has survived. Only the court minutes leave any trace of James Sanders, Sr in Johnston County.  There is no trace in the Johnston County records as to a wife surviving James Sr in Johnston County and much speculation has been made as to her name. Since many of the descendants bear the name of Hardy, it is thought that she might have been a member of the Hardy family of Eastern North Carolina.  From: Lisa Grimes

James Sanders married his second wife, Sarah Sanders (maiden name not listed) 4 AUG 1797 in Oglethorpe, GA the widow of John Johnson, formerly of Surry County, NC. The widow Sarah Sanders drew in the 1807 Georgia Land Lottery as a widow of a Revolutionary Soldier. 

On 12 FEB 1785 James Sanders deeded land to his son John, for love and affection, to daughter Nannie, wife of Daniel Holman in 1786; and to son James Sanders Jr for love and affection in 1788.  The family remained in Surry County for ca 20 years before moving to Oglethorpe, GA with a number of other Surry County families, including the Johnsons and Holmans.
 

That's about all I have regarding the Johnsons.  I am assuming that James Sanders died in GA because he must have been rather old when they moved and the fact that his wife was still there at the time of the lottery.

I don't know anything other than what I have written about Sarah's husband or her maiden name.  Nothing about any children either.
 

I wish I could be of more help to you but that's all I have.  If you need citations for some of the records I will be happy to give them to you.
 

Hope some of this helps in your search!

Cumberland County, State of North Carolina: Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions December Term 1834

 

 On this first day of December 1834 personally appeared in open Court before the Court

of Pleas and Quarter Sessions for the County and State aforesaid now sitting Jacob Johnson a resident of said County -- aged 75 years -- who being first duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7th 1832

 

That he was drafted into the service of the United States -- and served in a company

commanded by Captain John Fletcher of Cross Creek (now Fayetteville) Cumberland County -- but being very illiterate and of frail memory -- does not recollect the year, was detached with others of his Company to procure provisions -- in collecting cattle -- butchering and salting them, in conveying the provisions thus procured to the depot at Cross Creek for the service of the Army -- he thinks this service was performed about 18 months or 2 years before the battle of Guilford -- and believes himself to have been then 17 years of age -- he received a written discharge from his Captain which has been lost, he was acquainted with no higher Officer he served this tour until the expiration of his draft 3 months.

 

Six months subsequently to this as well as he recollects -- he was again drafted and

placed under the Command of Captain Archibald Smith of Cumberland -- he was detailed with others of his Company in guarding and herding the Cattle purchased and collected for the service of the United States, which duty he performed -- being absent from home 3 months -- when he was regularly discharged -- this certificate is lost -- A short time before or after the battle of Guilford -- he was called out by the authorities of Cumberland County with the other friendly population -- to suppress an insurrection of the Tories consequent upon the retreat of this US Army -- the Whig militia assembled near Cross Creek to the number of 500 -- the only officer of note he recollects was Colonel Hardy Sanders of Wake the troop remained embodied until the defeat of the Tory chief Hector McNeil at Lindley's Mills in Moore County by one Colonel Butler the Whigs commander not now recollected. The Tories after this defeat being unable again to make head the troops were permitted to return home -- no discharge being given -- he was at this time out about 20 days.

 

 This Declarant further states that he was born in Johnson County [sic, Johnston County], State of North Carolina day and date unknown to him having no record of his age and being unable to read it if he had won, that his parents removed into Cumberland when he was an infant that he has since and now resides in that County -- that he was drafted twice as above stated -- was never in service with Continental troops – any [one or more and indecipherable words] procuring provisions for their use -- that he does not recollect the Colonel of the Regiment to which his Company belonged - never being embodied -- when he was with it, that he received 2 written discharges which are lost, has no documentary evidence of his services -- but his brother Alexander Johnson 11

-- who served in Gates Army will testify to his services -- that there is no

clergyman residing in his neighborhood -- --

 

He hereby relinquishes every claim whatsoever to a pension or annuity except the present

and declares that his name is not on the Pension Roll of the agency of any state.

Sworn and subscribed to the day and date above written.

S/ Jacob Johnson, JT his mark

 

The following answers were given to the interrogatories propounded by the Court

1st I was born in Johnston County day and date unknown

2nd I have no record of my age nor am I aware that one ever existed.

3rd I was removed to Cumberland County when an infant and have resided in the latter County ever since.

4th I was drafted twice -- volunteered about one month.

5th I recollect no regular Officers -- nor the names of regiments my services not having brought me into contact with the Continental troops.

6th I received 2 written discharges -- at the expiration of the terms of service -- from my

commanders -- which have been lost.

7th That Alexander Johnson will testify to the fact of my services and __ to my character for veracity and the reputation of my revolutionary services in the neighborhood.

Alexander Johnson maketh oath that the statements in the above declaration are true to the best of his knowledge and belief -- he having personal knowledge of most of them.

 

Sworn and subscribed. S/ Alexander Johnson, M his mark

 

[Facts in file: This applicant's claim was not allowed the calls the nature of his services during the war was not covered by the pension acts. The applicant died March 6, 1847; he married April 18, 1830 Nancy __, in Cumberland County North Carolina; in 1852 Nancy Johnson gave her age as 55 years.]

 State of North Carolina, County of Wilkes

 

 On this 31st day of October 1832 personally appeared in open Court before the Court of

Pleas & Quarter Sessions of the County of Wilkes & State of North Carolina now sitting, William Johnson Esquire a resident of the County of Wilkes & State of North Carolina, aged 78 years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth, on his oath, make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832.

 

That he was born on the 28th day of July 1754 in the County of Amelia & State of

Virginia, (the record of which is entered in his family Bible) where he lived until his father removed to Johnston County (now Wake) North Carolina, at which time he was very small. He lived in said County until he was about 17 years of age, when he removed with his father to the County of Rowan (now Surry) in the same State, where he lived until he entered the service of the United States as a volunteer in the month of February 1776 in a company of volunteers commanded by Captain Hamblin, and marched forthwith to Cross Creek or Fayetteville, with a view of suppressing the Scotch Tories who were at that time committing great depredations in that section of the Country -- before how were they reached the scene of their expected operations, an engagement had been fought between the Tories, under command of General McDonald, and the Americans under General Moore, Colonel Caswell & Colonel Lillington at a

bridge on Moore's Creek, in which the former were defeated & taken prisoners. After the

engagement was over the prisoners were brought to Fayetteville where this deponent was

stationed as one of the guard for a considerable time and until the prisoners were sent off -- this deponent was one of 12 persons detailed from Captain Hamblin's Company to form part of the guard to convey the prisoners to Halifax, but for some reason unknown to this deponent they did not go, and after being detained there some time after the principal part of the troops were discharged, they were also discharged and returned home, which place this deponent reached some time in the month of April, having been in service about 2 months and a half –

 

In the month of July or August following the deponent again volunteered himself as an

Ensign in the company of Captain Samuel Mosby, under a commission given him by Governor Caswell, and rendezvoused near old Richmond in the said County of Surry, where they remained about a week, making preparations for their intended expedition, and thence marched across the Blue Ridge to Fort Chissel near the Lead mines in Virginia, where they remained a few days and thence marched direct to the Long Islands of Holstein [sic, Holston River] where they joined the Virginia troops under ColonelChristie or Christian, and after remaining there about 2 weeks,

they marched as direct as they could to the Cherokee Nation -- upon arriving at the Cherokee Towns they found that most of the Indians had fled and abandoned the Towns; & after destroying their towns, corn and such other property as they could find, they marched back as far as the Tennessee River where they were halted until they received their rations to carry them home, and then set out for home which place this deponent reached about 19 November -- having been in service during this tour from 3 to 4 months

 

-- From the time that this deponent returned from the Indian nation until the Spring of the year 1780, (at which time this deponent removed into Wilkes County) he performed several tours of duty against the Tories in various parts of the County but the length of each and the particular circumstances connected therewith, he cannot now after a lapse of so many years pretend to recollect --

 

In the month of March 1781 directly after the battle of Guilford, this deponent was drafted for a short tour, to oppose Lord Cornwallis who was supposed intended to return to South Carolina, and rendezvoused at Hamblin’s old store where he joined the company of Captain John Cleveland (son of Colonel Cleveland) and marched direct to the old trading Ford on the Yadkin [River] near Salisbury, with a view of opposing the passage of Lord Cornwallis -- and after being stationed there for a short time, it was ascertained that Lord Cornwallis had marched for Wilmington, when there being no longer any necessity for their services, they were discharged and returned home, having been in service during this expedition about 3 weeks --

 

This deponent has resided in the County of Wilkes ever since the revolutionary war, and

resides there at this time –

 

He has no documentary evidence to prove his services, the commission given him as Ensign by Governor Caswell having been lost or mislaid for many years –

 

He has no discharges, nor has he any recollection of ever having received any -- nor does he know of any person living whose testimony he can procure, who could testify to his service, but refers to Colonel William P. Waugh and Samuel F. Patterson as persons to whom he is well-known and who can testify as to his character for veracity and their belief of his services as a soldier of the revolution --

 

 He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present,

and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any State.

 

Sworn to & subscribed the day & year aforesaid

 

S/ R. Martin, Clk S/ William Johnson Senior

Sill Johnson

Silvanus "Sill" Johnson

Harnett County Heritage Book

 

        Many Johnsons in eastern Harnett County are the descendants of Silvanus Johnson who died between September 13, 1763 and October 1763 and Elizabeth Carrell who died in 1769.  Sill may have been born in Lancaster County, Virginia.  A Sill Johnson acquired land in Prince Edward and Amelia Counties in Virginia.  His brother Richard Johnson and he acquired land in Johnston County, North Carolina in 1748.  John Carrell, brother of Elizabeth Carrell Johnson, deeded land on Swift Creek to Sill Johnson.  This acreage was part of a grant to John Carrell from the Earl of Granville in 1752.  In 1760, a petition was made to the county court for Sill Johnson to build a gristmill on White Oak Swamp.  In 1761, the State of North Carolina granted Sill Johnson 450 acres on the White Oak Swamp.  Sill granted 225 acres on the south side to Henry Johnson and 225 acres on the north side to Sill Johnson, Jr.  On September 13, 1763, Sill Johnson wrote his will leaving his wife Elizabeth Carrell Johnson the manor plantation and his son a reversional interest in his plantation.  Abasalon Johnson was to receive the remainder of sill's estate.  Sill must have died prior to October 19, 1763, because his widow and son Henry presented the will of Sill Johnson in court that date.  Henry Johnson exhibited in court an inventory of the Sill Johnson estate on July 16, 1765.

        Sill Johnson, Jr. was born before April 1744, and died before January 1, 1787.  He married Elizabeth (?) and located in Rowan County, NC.  Henry Johnson was born before April 1744, and died between October 11, 1807 and November 1807.  Henry married Sealy West, daughter of Robert West.  Benjamin, the Harnett County forebearer, was born after April 1744 and died after 1820.  He married Mary (?).  He left Johnston County to live in Wake County, but later settled in Cumberland County (later Harnett).  Absolon was born after April 1744, and located in Robeson County.

        Ben Johnson and his wife Mary sold 40 acres on the south side of Swift Creek to a Richard Apperson.  Later on February 17, 1775, Benjamin of Wake County deeded 150 acres in Johnston County on the north side of Swift Creek to Benjamin Clements of Wake County.  This tract of land earlier belonged to John Carrell and Sill Johnson.  Ben Johnson is found on records in Cumberland County, NC in 1801.  Three hundred acres on a branch of Black River were deeded by Benjamin Johnson, Sr. to Sill Johnson.  Sill Johnson and Benjamin Johnson show up on the same 1820 census of Cumberland County.  Benjamin sold land to Sill in 1831.  Benjamin's issues are Benjamin Johnson, Jr., who was born before 1775 and died after 1834 in Cumberland County, and Sill Johnson who was born about 1786.  Other than the 300 acres he acquired in 1801, he received 100 acres via grant on Panther Branch in Cumberland County from John Green.  Benjamin, Sr., later deeded other tracts of land to Sill in 1831.  Sill was twice married.  First, he married Edith (?) who died between the 1850 and 1860 census count.  A second wife Sarah (Sally) is listed as 64 years of age on the 1860 count.  Sill and Edith had six children. 

        Hugh A. Johnson was their first child being born on April 30, 1816., and dying between 1870-1873.  He married Angelina Barnes who was born on February 5, 1819, and died after 1894.  Angie was the daughter of David and Bethania Newsom Barnes.  Hugh's sister was born about 1831, married Lewis Bryant Barnes, born about 1815.  Angie and Lewis were siblings.  Lewis died before 1870.  Morrella Johnson, another sister of Hugh's, was born about 1820.  John Johnson, a brother to Hugh, was born 1829; Lucy Johnson was born in 1832 and died October 12, 1899.  She married Neil Barnes who was the son of John and Sarah McLeod Barnes.  Rufus and Lucy Johnson were both 17 on the 1850 census indicating that they were twin siblings of Hugh.

        On this same 1850 census of Cumberland County listed Hugh Johnson as age 35 with real estate value of $200; Angelina was listed as age 29.  In the 1860 Harnett County census records, Hugh's real estate increased to $1600 and he had twelve living children residing in the Hugh A. Johnson dwelling.

        These children were Mary Johnson (November 15, 1841), Lewis (January 1843- he died before the next census), Louise E. "Lucy" (January 25, 1844), Elizabeth D. (August 20, 1845), William C. (October 14, 1846, civil Ann (April 8, 1848), David H. was born May 26, 1849 and died March, 1908.  "Hen" married Lena Weaver. Edy Winifred Johnson  (August 4, 1850), Benjamin Franklin (May 5, 1852- May 7, 1820) married Mary Alice Johns(t)on (August 4, 1857-April 5, 1938). She was the daughter of Amos Greene Johns(t)on and Mary Alice Sutton of Johnston County.  Sarah A. (January 14/1854), Martha M. (November 29, 1855), Thomas J. was born August 20, 1858 and married Effie Parrish, Hanna (March 6, 1859) married Robert L. Johns(t)on - brother of Mary Alice.  John A. (September 25, 1860 - September 26, 1813) married Mary Gregory.

 State of Tennessee, County of Warren

 

 On this the 11th day of October 1833 personally appeared in open court before the Court

of Pleas and Quarter Sessions for the County of Warren the same being now in session present the Worshipful William McGregor Samuel Durby & Aaron Higginbotham Esquire residing Justices of said Court Barnabass Johnson a resident in the County of Warren and State of Tennessee, aged about 80 years who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his Oath make the following declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress, passed June 7th, 1832.

 

 That he entered the service of the United States under the following named Officers, and

served as herein stated.

 

 That in the early part of the year 1776, the Militia of North Carolina were called out and

into the service to defend Wilmington against the attack of the British commanded by General Clinton. Applicant then lived in Cumberland County in said State (North Carolina) when he about the first of May in the year 1776 volunteered into the service for the space of 3 months, he joined a Company commanded by a Captain Guess he does not recollect his given name, he joined the Company and Rendezvoused at a place on the Neuse River in Johnson County [sic, Johnston County] State of North Carolina called Smithfield, he does not recollect the name of the Ensign or Lieutenant of the company, various other companies rendezvoused at the same place he recollects one of them was commanded by Captain of the name of Bryant. At the place of Rendezvous the American flag was suspended from a pole. From Smithfield he was marched to Wilmington North Carolina crossing the Cape fear River, passing through Fayetteville, he also crossed [word obliterated] Creek and a little River of the same name: At Fayetteville his company was attached to a Regiment commanded by Colonel Armstrong does not recollect his given name nor does he recollect the names of the Majors of the Regiment or of any of the other officers commanding it than Colonel Armstrong nor does he recollect his given name: from Fayetteville he was marched to Wilmington NC he thinks it took them 10 or 12 days to perform the route they crossed the Cape fear River at a ferry near Fayetteville. After his arrival at Wilmington, there was an officer attached to his Regiment by the name of Fulsome or some such name he thinks he was a Colonel though he may have been a Major he thinks there was a General in command in Wilmington by the name of Brown. Also thinks General Lee was there a part of the time he was in Wilmington, he does not recollect of seeing him, when he arrived at Wilmington there was a British ship of war in the Cape fear River below Wilmington, he also understood that the whole British fleet sailed to the Cape during the time he was there and shortly after sailed for Charleston South Carolina; he remained in Wilmington until some time in the first part of the month of August in 1776 when after having served out his Tour of 3 months he was discharged in writing by his Captain Guess in Wilmington in the State of North Carolina, during his stay there he was frequently exercised and sometimes stood Sentry whilst there the intelligence of the declaration of Independence was received in that City it was greeted by the fire of 13 Cannon. He served in this Tour at least 3 months.

 

 From Wilmington he returned to his residence in Cumberland County North Carolina.

After he had been home about 6 months perhaps a few months longer he was again in

Cumberland County State of North Carolina drafted into the service for 3 months and

commanded to rendezvous at Fayetteville in the same County, which he did he thinks it was in moderate whether perhaps the spring season indeed he feels satisfied that it was late in the spring from the circumstance that during the service of this Tour one of his Company who had ate a watermelon was afterwards shot, and a watermelon seed came out at the bullet hole.

 

Applicant therefore states that late in the spring season of the year of 1777 he entered the service he was attached to a company of infantry commanded by a Captain Armstrong does not recollect his given name a son of the Colonel who commanded his Regiment at Wilmington, he does not recollect the Lieutenant or Ensign of the Company. His company as applicant understood was by the order of Colonel Armstrong to range through the Country in pursuit of Tories and to keep them in proper subjection. What Regiment if any it belonged to applicant does not know as it was not attached to any during his service he does not recollect the day or month when he entered the service: Shortly after he joined his company they marched to Drounding Creek [sic, Drowning Creek?]. From there to the little Pedee River. There they received information of a company of Tories being on the Cape fear River, wherefore they immediately marched back to that River upon their arrival at which they ascertained that they had been there but a few days previous and had killed a man by the name of Guess [?] and fled in the direction of the big or Great Pedee [River] to which place they immediately pursued them, upon their reaching the latter place they found that their object had fled down that River causing them to be beyond the reach of a successful pursuit. Applicant and his company were marched back to Fayetteville for the purpose of refreshing and resting -- themselves and horses here applicant remained for some time does not recollect how long. From there they marched to a place known by the name of the Bare Swamp [Bear Swamp?] which place was frequently resorted to by the Tories, finding none there they were marched to a place called the Ash pole Swamp [Ashpole Swamp?], not finding any Tories at either of these places they marched back to Fayetteville and after having been there a few days they marched to Guesses Ford on the Cape Fear River, there they found a large Company of Tories commanded by one Fannon [sic, David Fanning], they attacked them and had a pretty sharp skirmish with them. The Tories retreated and were not pursued being as was believed superior in number to applicant’s Company. In this skirmish they killed 4 Tories and had 3 of their Company killed and one by the name of Young Birt [?] badly wounded, after this applicant and his Company scoured about in the neighborhood of that place for a few days and then returned to Fayetteville where they remained a few days when his Tour expired where and when he was in the latter part of the summer or first of the fall in the year of 1777 in Fayetteville in Cumberland County State of North Carolina discharged in writing by his Captain Armstrong.

Applicant understood that his Company was retained in the neighborhood of Fayetteville by the direction of Colonel Armstrong, from there he went to his residence in Cumberland County in the State aforesaid where he remained until about 2 or 3 months before the siege of Little York when he was again drafted into the service after which he had a rising to come on his body being so much troubled by that as to make the service uncomfortable to him and at the same time it not being a sufficient inability to extricate him from the service he hired one Hogwood does not recollect his given name to serve his Tour as a substitute which he did for which Applicant paid him $52. This was the termination of applicant’s military service in the last Tour under Captain Armstrong he served at least 3 months, in all he served at least 6 months for which he claims

compensation.

 

He has no documentary evidence of his services, nor does he know of any person living

whose testimony he can procure who can testify to his services.

 

1st . He was born in Edgecomb County in the State of Virginia in the year of 1753 as he believes from the information of his parents.1

 

2nd . He has not nor never did have any record of his age.

 

3rd . When called into the service he lived in Cumberland County North Carolina. Since the Revolutionary War he lived a few years in Cumberland County North Carolina, he then moved to Johnson [sic, Johnston] County in the same State lived there several years, then he moved back to Cumberland and remained there until about 6 years ago, when he moved to this Warren County in the State of Tennessee where he now live and has ever since he moved to it.

 

4th . The first Tour of 3 weeks he served he volunteered into the service. The 2nd Tour of 3 months he served he was drafted into the service.

 

5th . When he served in Wilmington he understood that there was Regular Officers and

Continental regiments there, if so he does not if he ever knew at this time recollect any of their names or Nos., nor does he State anything more about Militia Regiments than he has [stated] in the body of this declaration, he was an ignorant back woodsman, and had not either the means or inclination to make any inquiries upon the subject & if he had he does not suppose that after the lapse of 57 years with a naturally weak mind and that too enfeebled by old age that he could recollect them, his mind is now quite feeble as well as his body, he is very poor, to his weakness of memory he attributes his not recollecting more of the field officers of his Regiment.

 

6th . For each of the Tours he served he received written discharges from the service, the first one was given to him by his Captain Guess, the 2nd by his Captain Armstrong, they have been lost or destroyed many years ago when how and where he does not recollect.

 

7th He is known to Joseph Banks, Sampson Bethell and some others all of whom live in his present neighborhood and can testify as to his character for veracity and of their belief of his services as a Soldier of the Revolution.

 

He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a Pension or annuity except the present,

and declares that his name is not on the Pension Roll of the Agency of any State.

Researchers Notes:

Hi, my name is Ernest Knoxie Johnson. As you know I'm in  the Johnson Project as leader of the Pond Cypress group. I have  researched my Johnson line for many years, correcting old  genealogies along the way. I have been involved with dna research,  mostly through FTDNA for almost six years. I got my first results  back from FTDNA in Dec of 2002. I have been in touch with Mr  Bennett a number of time since we have similar results on our 464  markers. My ggg grandfather Noel Johnson/ton was born in 1769   suppose in either Johnston or Wake County. He was in the 1784-87  Johnston County census living next to William Jonston (the way the  census taker spelled it). William and Noel were in the "List of  Inhabitants of Capt William Bryant's Company" along with Sill Jonston and Absilum Jonston( Richard had already deceased).

 That she is the widow of Moses Johnson who was a private soldier of the war of the

Revolution in the militia of North Carolina and that a part of the time he served under one

Captain Smith at length of time her said husband served under Captain Smith she cannot say on account of the loss of memory -- and the balance of the time he served under Captain McCullers as he often told her and that the whole time of his service was better than 3 years as she has heard him say divers times -- and that when her said Husband Moses Johnson entered the Army he was a resident of the County of Johnston and the said State -- and she heard him often speak of being in the battle of Camdin [sic, Camden] in South Carolina in the battle of brier creek [sic, Briar Creek] also and several others which she cannot now recollect and she further saith that she was married to her said Husband Moses Johnson on the 25th of February 1791 in Johnston County in said State by one Hardy Bryan Esquire and she further saith that her said Husband

SUB NOTES

 

Hello Tony,
Thank you for your email. My Johnson/ton line comes from
Johnston County NC. This line came into Johnston County NC between 1750-55 from
Isle of Wight County Va. in the persons of Thomas Johnston Jr, John Johnston
and Amos Johnston. Thomas and John were brothers and the sons of Thomas
Johnston Sr of the Isle of Wight County Va. Amos was the son of John. You and I
are in the Johnson DNA project but are different haplogroups(I'm R1b1) so
there is no relationship in our Johnson lines. My ggggrandfather was Noel
Johnston. He left Johnston County in 1802 in a move to Chesterfield
County SC
where my roots are. Noel's father was Joel Johnston. This is proved
by estate records. Joel Johnston's father was the above Thomas Johnston
Jr. This relationship is proved by a gift of deed from Joel to his father
Thomas where he gave land and livestock to his father for " the care he has
taken of me while under doctor's care". Noel did have a brother named
Urias(Uriah) who was the adminst. of Joel's will. Urias relocated to Maury County
Tenn
.,from there his descendants spread to Missouri, Illinos and Iowa.

The person who knows most about the Johnson/ton families of Johnston County is
Mark Valsame. He lives in Johnston County and is a genealogist for the
State of NC. Mark has related to me that the Sill Johnson/ton line is a
different line from the Thomas/John Johnston line. I guess our DNA test prove
that if you are related to the Sill Johnston line. Richard Johnson/ton was a
son of the elder Sill Johnson/ton. If I'm not mistaken, I believe Mark
indicated that the Sill line came to Johnston County from Amelia County Va area.
I will have to verify that. I have a perfect match with another Johnson
in Chesterfield County area that descended from a William Johnson/ton who
lived in Johnston County. He relocated to Chesterfield County between
1810/20. I hope this information has been of some help. My project #is 5962. I'm
located in the Linden Tree group.

Researchers Notes:  Lee,

       Wanted to let everyone listed that I’m will in the next 30 minute be placing an order  for  Ydna test for a proven descendant of the Sill Johnson(Sylvanus) line. His name is Joey Travis Johnson. He does live in Johnston County NC has a proven line to Sill Johnson.  Mark Valsame  and I have been looking for a candidate from the Sill Johnson line. Mark was able to find Joey through a relative. The results of Joey test will be a bench mark to see if our President Andrew Johnson test candidates are descended from the Sill Johnson line and of course give others such as myself a chance to verify paper evidence. I will be ordering and covering the cost for a 37 marker test (missed the Sept discount, darn). Joey results will also be very important to me in establishing the relationship of the different Johnson lines in Johnston County and Wake County.

Regards,

Ernest
