GREEN IS KNOWN MICHAEL JOHNSON DNA INFORMATION AND CONNECTING INORMATION

Haplogroup I  -The I, I1, and I1a lineages are nearly completely restricted to northwestern Europe. These would most likely have been common within Viking populations. One lineage of this group extends down into central Europe. Haplogroup I dates to 23,000 years ago or longer. Lineages not in branches I1a, I1b or I1c are found distributed at low frequency throughout Europe  Group White Oak http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hjohnson/haplogroup.i.html#Group_White_Oak

Olive is the DNA LINE of Leonard Johnson and Todd Johnson

Haplogroup I2A -This subgroup of Haplogroup I is found within the Balkans countries at it's greatest frequency and diversity. These countries probably harbored this subset of Haplogroup I as a refuge during the Last Glacial Maximum.

Lime is the Color assigned to this DNA GROUP OF JOHNSON RESEARCHERS and will be added to Current Files of Johnson and Allied Families in Faquier Co. Va. Halifax Co. Va. Pittsylvania Co. Granville Co. NC

 

Haplogroup R1b1   -Haplogroup R1b is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype . Group Elm

Gold is the Color for descendants of Colonel Richard Johnson

 

Turquoise is the DNA of Jeffery Michael Johnson

Haplogroup E3a - Haplogroup E3a is an Africa lineage. It is currently hypothesized that this haplogroup dispersed south from northern Africa within the last 3,000 years, by the Bantu agricultural expansion. E3a is also the most common lineage among African Americans

 

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.

 

Red is the County lines and Parish Lines: These lines can and will change people in a County or in a Parish. This is to serve as a Time line to show changes, in lines or in changes where families moved to from this area.

 

Notes: Some Quaker dates have been translated Before the 1752 calendar change, the first month of the year was March. The correct date is inserted
before the quoted excerpts below. 
From: Mary E. Stewart  

 

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

 

Rose Color is for Haplogroup R1b1   -Haplogroup R1b is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re-colonized after the last glacial maximum 10-12 thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroup containing the Atlantic modal haplotype . Researchers matching this DNA ARE; James Russell Johnson, Samuel Frank Johnson, C. Thomas Johnson and Stephen Alexander Johnson http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hjohnson/Pedigrees/1195_et_all.htm.

Haplogroup E3b1a -  This lineage is estimated to have originated in north-eastern Africa about 23,000 years ago. Some of its branches exited Africa during the Paleolithic, and today it can be found in Europe, the Middle East, and north and east Africa: DNA Of Researcher Brett Johnson

 

Haplogroup R1bi is the most common haplogroup in European populations. It is believed to have expanded throughout Europe as humans re colonized after the last glaciail maximum 10-13 thousand years ago. This lineage is also the haplogroups containing the Atlantic modal haplotype: Group is Aspen; Color is Light Orange Researchers are Jane Johnson Williams, James Johnson born Ca 1718 died 1785 Brunswick Co.

1749 SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY Formed from Prince George and Isle of Wright Lands a portion (west of the Blackwater River) of Nansemond Co. was later added

NOTE NANSEMOND County split from this County

1749-54, "Joseph Jeffries a mullatto" in Southampton County when the court ordered the churchwardens of Nottoway Parish to bind out his children [Orders 1749-54, 388]. He was a taxable head of household with (his brother?) John Jeffries in Granville County, North Carolina, in the summary list for 1755 [CR 44.701.23], and he and his wife Ruth were "mulatto" taxables in the Cross Road District of Granville County in James Paine's list in Robert Collier's household in 1761 and in Thomas Hawtorn's household in 1762 [CR 44.701]. He mortgaged his livestock and furniture in Bute County to Charles Johnson on 19 November 1764 [Wills & Inventories 3:12, by Kerr, Warren County Records, 2]. He and John Jeffreys were insolvent taxpayers in Bute County in 1769 [Miscellaneous Tax Records in N.C. Genealogy, 2431]. Joseph was taxable in Warren County on an assessment of 59 pounds in 1779 and taxable in Captain Colclough's district from 1781 to 1785: 610 pounds assessment in 1781, 83 pounds in 1782, taxable on 140 acres and poll tax in 1784, 2 polls in 1785, perhaps identical to Joseph Jefferson who was taxable on 196 acres and no polls in 1788 [1779 Assessments, p.2; Tax List 1781-1801, 17, 27, 63, 81, 97, 156; L.P. 64.1, p.19]. http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Jeffery_Johnson.htm

Here is a line of Johnsons from VA to Warren Co. GA.  William Johnson was a  Rev. War soldier, and his name is on the monument in front of the Warren Co. Ga. Ct. House with others from that county who served.  In the outline below, I
basically removed the desc. of the daughters who married into the Aldred,
English, etc lines, and left the Johnsons.

Some of this early information came from "William Johnson, Sr. 1750-1830:
The Johnsons of
Warren Co, Ga.", compiled by Bob Guill Johnson.  However, I
tried to find supporting evidence from other sources to verify them.  All
are not verified so if someone is interested in a particular person or
group, please get in touch at billee@truvista.net  and i will send a report
with notes and sources on the particular folks.

Sarah under age,

Rebbeca who married Simon Harris,

Ann who married Shadrach Johnson Dec 1770:

So does any one know more about Ann Collier and Shadrach Johnson: Did they move to SC. posted on Rootsweb Southampton Co by Marj on APril 29 2003:

note Reply to above: Posted July 11 2003 by Cindy Garrison:: I've just started some research on the Johnsons and found a Shadrach in the 1850 Georgia Census. Could your Search have a brother named William who would have been 75 in 1850 and a brother named Elisha or Elijah who would have been 73 in 1850. I found these guys were born in Virginia according to the records. I have a list of possible children if that helps. I'm looking for a Martha Johnson possibly related as a grandaughter or grandneice who was born about 1840 give or take five years who married a Bryan.

1758 Died Gilbert Hay (c1700? – 1758) Perhaps a son, an apparently younger Gilbert Hay died in 1758 in Surry County apparently without children of his own.[459] It isn’t completely clear which Surry records might apply to him, as opposed to his presumed father, since neither is ever referred to as Senior or Junior. It was probably his father who witnessed two deeds on 2 February 1720/1 in Surry County, for the seller (of Prince George County) was the son of a man for whom Gilbert Hay had written a will in Prince George.[460]

He appears to have married the widow of Thomas Griffis, who died in Surry County in June 1726 leaving a widow Mary and minor children Edward, John, Travis, Jane, Mary, and Elizabeth.[461] By the time the inventory was presented on 19 October 1726, Mary Griffis had become Mary Hay.[462] As Mary Hay she bound out her son Edward Griffis in 1743.[463]

When Gilbert Hay sold land in Surry in 1750 his wife Mary released dower.[464] Note that Gilbert Hay’s will names five of his six stepchildren as legatees: Edward Griffis, John Griffis, Jane Jarret (Griffis), Mary Weaver (Griffis), and Elizabeth Prince (Griffis).

There doesn’t seem to be a deed to Gilbert Hay for land in Surry, and he may have lived on Thomas Griffis’ land, 450 acres partly in Surry and partly in Prince George, which Griffis bought in 1717.[465] The earliest deed I found was Gilbert Hay’s purchase of 650 acres from Richard Moore on 14 October 1734.[466]

His will, dated 14 April 1758 and proved four days later, mentions numerous people including his brother Richard, “cousin” (probably meaning nephew) Gilbert Hay, son of Charles Hay, sister Ruth Solowman, wife of William, and son-in-law (apparently meaning stepson) John Griffis. It also left legacies to Edward Griffis and Thomas, son of Edward Griffis;

Betty Prince, wife of Nicholas;

Nathan, Henry, and Nicholas Prince;

Jane Jarrat, wife of Nicholas;

Lucy Cotton, wife of John;

Stephen Johnson;

James Holloway, son of John Sr.;

Mary Weaver, wife of Edward;

Edith Griffis, wife of Thomas;

Betty Tatum.

It names several of these as godchildren: Gilbert Hay, Lucy Cotton, Richard Corlisly, Jane Jarret, Stephen Johnson, James Holloway, Lucy Griffis, and Betty Prince. http://www.genfiles.com/ivey/AdamIvey.htm#_ftn125

1760 Oct 16: William JOHNSON, born 16 Oct 1750 in Southampton Co, VA. Served 1774-1775 as a Patriot in the American Revolution. Moved family to Warren Co, GA about 1794 where he received bounty land. Died 6 May 1830 and is buried in Johnson Methodist Church Cemetery which was from land he had donated in the southern part of Warren Co. GA.

His brother Willis Johnson also served and located in one of the counties south of Warren Co.

 

Two brothers, Willis Johnson and William JOHNSON, of Southampton Co, VA  settled land claims in Warren Co, GA in 1792 as the results of being in the Revolution. With them came Soloman & Peter Newsome

But then History of Warren County, Georgia 1793 - 1974 by Wilkes Publishing

"To him (William Johnson) and Lucy Rosannah Johnson were born eight sons
and three daughters: Randolph Johnson, Amos Johnson, Lewis Johnson, Aaron Johnson, James Johnson, Sarah Johnson, Reece Johnson, Seaborn Johnson, Lucy Johnson, William Johnson, Jr., and Polly Johnson."

Genealogists which have corresponded with me use the following on the

Martha Elizabeth Johnson, born about 1782, married 1802 to William Aaron Aldred and
died after 1860 (This information is agreeable in all sources.)

Sarah Johnson born 1789, married 1803 to James Bailey and died before Oct 28, 1826

John BEALE

Geo WASHINGTON
1727, George Washington, Oliver Woodward, and Benjamin Johnston appraised the estate of Henry Flowers. 
George Washington witnessed the 1740 will of Oliver Woodward, Sr., Another witness to Oliver Woodward, Sr.'s will was Thomas Alling (Allen). 
George Washington witnessed the will of Benjamin Johnston, Sr., in 1764 and was one of three men who inventoried his estate in 1767. 
Similarly, George Washington witnessed the 1773 will of Job Johnston, son of Benjamin Johnston, Sr., 
In 1741, Benjamin Johnston, Sr., Thomas Drake, Sr., and George Washington appraised the estate of Thomas Allen. 
Since these records involving George Washington cover a span of 46 years, there may be two different men by the same name involved, but probably they were of the same family. http://www.woodardfamilytree.com/html/oliverwoodwardsr.html

1777 - September 13, John Beal Will: To son Drury land adjoining Dr. Browne and Howell Whittington; son Burwell; son John; wife Liddia. Ex., Joseph Johnson. Wit: George Gurley, Thomas Edwards, Jacob Braswell. (Southampton Co., VA WB III Pg. 199) R. Feb 12, 1778

Researchers Notes: Lydia's brother Benjamin Johnson Jr. witnessed the 1744 will of Richard Braswell who was named as child of Susannah Burgess Braswell & Richard Towle in Towle's 1692 will.

Jacob Braswell moved to
Johnston County North Carolina shortly after he witnessed the above will and his descendants fall into the S/H DNA group.
 
BEALL, JOHN. To son Drury land adjoining Dr. Browne and Howell Whittington; son Burwell; son John; wife Liddia. Ex., Joseph Johnson. D. Sept. 13, 1777. R. Feb. 12, 1778. Wit. George Gurley, Thomas Edwards, Jacob Braswell. (W.B. III P.197) NOTE: This Jacob's descendants fall within the S/H DNA Group.

 

1777 November 3,  Patience dated her will on and it was recorded in court on May 13, 1779.  Witnesses were Joshus Johnson, Moses Johnson, and Josiah Pope.  The order of the children listed corresponds to the order given in Patience's will.  Guardian records for Southampton County indicate that Elijah Pope was appointed guardian for Nathan Pope, orphan of Nathan Pope and that a bond was posted.  A date of October 14, 1779 was listed, indicating that he was either not yet of age at that time or unable to care for himself for some reason.  No record of a guardian was indicated for Jehu, Phoebe or Joel, but a bond was posted on July 8, 1784 by Burton Barnes, guardian for Richard Pope, orphan of Nathan Pope.  Bonds were also posted for Patience and Charity by their guardian, Elijah Crorker

 

Notes for PATIENCE EVERETT:
Some researchers say that Patience last name was Averett instead of Everett. http://www.genealogy.com/users/n/e/a/Tina-L-Nealon/FILE/0021text.txt

GEORGE WASHINGTON NOTES:
 
1727, George Washington, Oliver Woodward, and Benjamin Johnston appraised the estate of Henry Flowers. 
George Washington witnessed the 1740 will of Oliver Woodward, Sr., Another witness to Oliver Woodward, Sr.'s will was Thomas Alling (Allen). 
George Washington witnessed the will of Benjamin Johnston, Sr., in 1764 and was one of three men who inventoried his estate in 1767. 
Similarly, George Washington witnessed the 1773 will of Job Johnston, son of Benjamin Johnston, Sr., 
In 1741, Benjamin Johnston, Sr., Thomas Drake, Sr., and George Washington appraised the estate of Thomas Allen. 
Since these records involving George Washington cover a span of 46 years, there may be two different men by the same name involved, but probably they were of the same family. http://www.woodardfamilytree.com/html/oliverwoodwardsr.html

1792 Decd. Hugh Ivey (c1700? - 1792) Hugh Ivey appears to have been especially long-lived and, based on his apparently inheriting his father’s patent, was evidently the eldest son. He was living in Prince George County through 1725, for he witnessed the Prince George deed by Adam Ivey in late 1723[236] as well as the will of John Scott (along with Henry Ivey) in 1725.[237] These records also place his likely year of birth within a few years of 1700.[238]

Sometime between 1725 and 1734 he moved eastward into Surry County, for as Hugh Ivey of Surry County, he sold the 1720 patent of “Henry Ivy decd., father to the aforesaid Hugh Ivey” to George Wyche Jr. on 3 April 1734.[239] Elizabeth Ivey, either Hugh’s wife or his mother, also signed the deed.[240]

Hugh Ivey didn’t move southward with his presumed brothers, rather he remained in Surry (later Sussex) County all his life, settling adjacent to his uncle John Ivey in northwestern Sussex about four miles from the Prince George border. He bought 100 acres from John Wilkason on 13 June 1736, within a few hundred feet of his uncle John Ivey’s land on Pigeon Swamp.[241] On 13 March 1740/41 he bought an adjoining 100 acre patent from Amos Horton.[242] He acquired John Ivey’s patent of 1730 from John Baird in 1759.[243] He recorded his own patent for 145 acres adjoining all three tracts in 1764, although the survey was so out of date that Hugh had probably possessed the land for nearly ten years.[244] He bought another adjoining 75 acre parcel from John Mason in 1767.[245] This gave Hugh a single contiguous parcel of approximately 455 acres on the south side of Pigeon Swamp, a parcel he would later distribute in his will. Note that he was still accumulating this land well into his 60s.

He made one odd transaction. In 1747, as a resident of Surry County, he bought land in Brunswick County (now in northwestern Greensville County a few hundred yards east of the Brunswick County line).[246] This purchase is intriguing, for it was more than 30 miles from where he lived. He clearly did not live on this land, but he kept it for seventeen years during which he consistently appears as a resident of Surry, and later Sussex, County. It is unlikely that he was providing land for a son, for his eldest known son was under ten at the time. He may have been contemplating a move, but he and his wife Elizabeth sold this land to Edward Goodrich in 1764.[247] Hugh Ivey was listed on the 1755 Suffolk tax list with two tithes, probably slaves since his sons weren’t old enough to be tithable.[248]

He appears very frequently in the records of Surry and, after its formation in 1754, in the records of Sussex County as a juror, tobacco inspector, constable, and in several other capacities. He appears less frequently during the last twenty or so years of his life. His name appears on a Sussex County list of those taking the oath of allegiance in 1777, and was later paid for supplying 185 pounds of beef to the militia.[249] By the 1782 state census Hugh was heading a household of three whites and eleven slaves, with his son Daniel listed separately. (The son Richard may already have left the area.)

In the 1789 tax list, Hugh and sons Jesse and Daniel were separately listed. The baptisms of seven of the eight known children of Hugh Ivey and his wife Elizabeth are recorded in the Albemarle Parish register. Hugh Ivey was the same person who left a will in Sussex in 1792, for the names of these children and the land distributed in his will both match.[250]

His will was dated 24 March 1792 and proved 4 April 1793 in Sussex County, naming his wife Elizabeth and “all my children” Daniel, Jesse, Richard, Martha Jarratt, Elizabeth Johnson, and Rebecca Collier.[251] His tract of 450 (or so) acres was devised to his three sons. Daniel Ivey was devised 150 acres “whereon he now dwells”, Jesse Ivey was devised 150 acres, and Richard Ivey was devised the 255 acres “whereon I now dwell”. Each of the six named children were left one or more slaves. Granddaughter Elizabeth Collier was given furniture and a saddle.

The widow Elizabeth was apparently the same Elizabeth recorded in the parish register as the mother of the children, and the Elizabeth Ivey who had earlier released dower in his land sales.

According to a Methodist history (see below), Hugh’s son Richard Ivey returned to Sussex County in 1794 to care for his aged mother. She evidently died shortly thereafter, for the following year Richard Ivey emancipated the six slaves he was to possess after her death. She may have been the daughter of Daniel and Martha Horton, but the evidence is tenuous and rests mainly on Hugh’s giving both given names to his children. Daniel Horton, who had arrived in Surry by 1705, had died intestate in 1718 with his widow Martha administratrix.[252] No certain record of his children exists. Amos Horton, who may have been his son, obtained a patent near Hugh Ivey in 1739, which he sold to Hugh Ivey two years later in 1741. A Martha Horton was a sponsor of the baptism of Hugh’s son Henry in 1740, and witnessed the sale of Amos Horton’s patent to Hugh Ivey the following year. Martha may have been Amos Horton’s widowed mother. However, Martha Horton’s appearance as a sponsor of one of Hugh Ivey’s children could be adequately explained by her being a close neighbor. While it is possible that Hugh Ivey’s wife was Elizabeth Horton, it cannot be adequately proven. http://www.genfiles.com/ivey/AdamIvey.htm#_ftn125

1796 After Decd: Elizabeth Ivey (1 February 1735/6 – aft1796) The parish register calls her Martha’s twin. She was called “Elizabeth Johnson” in her father’s will. She was likely the wife of Thomas Johnson, whose 1772 will named Hugh and Jesse Ivey executors.[258] Elizabeth had relinquished dower in two parcels near Pigeon Swamp sold by her husband Thomas Johnson in 1766.[259] Perhaps the same Thomas and Elizabeth Johnson had earlier sold a patent in Southampton County to John Ivey, son of John, in 1752.[260]

The Albemarle Parish register records the baptism of three children to Thomas and Elizabeth Johnson:

Aggy Johnson (1754),

Elizabeth Johnson (1768), and

Thomas Johnson (1773).

Thomas Ivey (apparently her cousin and neighbor) and Elizabeth Ivey (probably her mother) were sponsors of the first child.

Thomas Johnson’s death was reported in the Albemarle parish register as 17 April 1772 (which is obviously inconsistent with the baptism of the child Thomas nearly 20 months later, but which is consistent with later records). Initially, Thomas Johnson was thought to have died intestate, for Elizabeth was named administratrix and filed the inventory of his estate on 17 September 1772.[261] Twenty-one years later a will was produced, dated 10 April 1772 a week before his death, leaving his estate to Elizabeth for her life and after her death to his children

Agee (Agey) Johnson,

Martha Johnson,

Henry Johnson,

Stephen Johnson,

Hugh Johnson,

Rebecca Johnson, and

Elizabeth Johnson

[262] At the probate on 6 June 1793 both Jesse Ivey and Elizabeth Johnson refused the executorship.

Thomas Johnson apparently died on property not far from his wife’s father in upper Sussex County, for a deed by John Sledge in 1777 for land in the area of Hugh Ivey refers to the adjoining land as Elizabeth Johnson’s.[263]

There were at least two widows named Elizabeth Johnson by the time the state census was taken, but Elizabeth is likely the one shown as head of a household of six whites. She is evidently the Elizabeth Johnson in the 1789 tax list with Henry Johnson as a poll in her household. She was apparently still alive at least in 1796, for she is mentioned in Daniel Ivey’s accounting of his father’s estate and is inferred from Daniel Ivey’s accounting of his brother Richard’s estate filed in 1801 but referring to five legatees as of 1796. http://www.genfiles.com/ivey/AdamIvey.htm#_ftn125

Notes Jesse Ivey (c1752/3 – 1834) Baptized 11 February 1752/3, with Elizabeth Ivey a godparent. He inherited 150 acres in his father’s will and remained in northern Sussex County, appearing in several records. He and his father were named executors in the will of Thomas Johnson, his brother-in-law, in 1772 though he refused to serve in 1793 when the will was finally proved.[271] He is evidently the Jesse Ivey who married Sarah Anderson in Sussex on 7 April 1787.[272] He appears on the 1789 and 1798 tax lists, and is in the 1810 Sussex census with three apparent sons and three daughters, he and his wife both over 45.[273] By 1820, both older sons and the eldest daughter had left the household.[274] In 1830, Jesse was 70-80, his wife 60-70, and a son 30-40 and two daughters 20-30 remained in the household. His will in Sussex is dated 13 November 1832 and proved 4 September 1834.[275] It names his wife Sarah, sons David Anderson Ivey, Jarrat Ivey, and Asberry Ivey, and three daughters: Sarah Ivey, Susannah Easter [Esther?] Ivey, and Elizabeth Jennings.[276] Two of his daughter Elizabeth’s children also received legacies. His land was left to the two unmarried daughters, Sarah and Susannah Easter, with the other legatees receiving slaves. “My two sons David Anderson and Jarrat” apparently lived elsewhere, as they were left no land but rather equal shares in two slaves, implying that the two were living near one another. Asberry Ivey was left a slave of his own, and was bequeathed the residual estate. ”My two sons David Anderson and Asberry” were named executors. (It seems clear that Jesse Ivey’s will named three sons, not two as W. Mac Jones interpreted it.)

Thomas Ivey (c1720? – 1796) He first appears as a witness to a deed on 24 August 1748 along with his John and Hugh Ivey.[421] The following year, he and Hugh Ivey witnessed the will of John Sledge.[422] Two years later, he witnessed his father’s sale to John Baird. He also appears in the Albemarle parish register as one of the godparents of Thomas Cullam Jr. in 1750, and in 1752 he and Amy Ivey, presumably his sister, along with Anne Gilbert, were godparents of a child of William and Mary Johnson. His father’s will devised him 180 (sic) acres, with possession upon the death of his mother. He and his wife Anne Ivey sold that inherited land whereon he then lived, described as 200 acres (the original 1716 grant to his father and the 100 acres purchased of John Mason), on 17 August 1759 to John Baird.[423] He must have married Anne by 1757, because Thomas and Anne Ivey witnessed two deeds by Phoebe Johnson on 8 August 1757.[424] The Albemarle Parish register records Thomas and Anne Ivey, along with Amy Ivey, as godparents of Betty Ivey, a foundling, born in 1758, and the birth of a son named Curtis Ivey to Thomas and Anne is recorded on 6 September 1759. No further children are recorded, suggesting that he left Sussex County. Indeed, he does not appear in Sussex records past Anne Ivey’s release of dower in the 1759 sale, which occurred on 18 April 1760. He was clearly the same Thomas Ivey who patented land in Brunswick County on 29 May 1760.[425] The land was located in present western Brunswick County just south of the Meherrin River near Genito Creek. (This is the land of “Ivie” referenced in the sale of an adjoining patent by John Knight in 1761.[426]) He sold this land on 23 March 1772 as a resident of Duplin County, North Carolina.[427] As Thomas Ivey “of the County of Dunwidie (sic) and Colony of Virginia”, he had purchased 350 acres in Duplin County very near his cousin Henry Ivey on 15 February 1766.[428] William Ivey, presumably Henry’s son, witnessed the deed. The land fell into Sampson County when it was formed in 1784, and where Thomas Ivey died in 1796. Thomas Ivey appears in the 1790 census of Sampson County with three males over 16 and four females. His son Curtis Ivey is separately listed nearby.

Thomas Ivey’s will in Sampson County is dated 19 September 1796.[429] It bequeaths his land and most of his slaves to sons Thomas and Claiborn, a slave to grandson Thomas Routledge Ivey, and other goods to daughters Charlotte, Elizabeth, Rebecca, and one daughter who seems likely to be Amelia. http://www.genfiles.com/ivey/AdamIvey.htm#_ftn125

Benjamin Ivey (c1760 – 1802) There are two entries in the parish register for a son of John and Mary Ivey named Benjamin, both carrying the same date (24 May) but one in 1760 and the other in 1761. His godparents were Benjamin and Elizabeth Adams and Joseph Prince. He is apparently the Benjamin Ivey who married Sally Reese by bond dated 17 October 1782 in Southampton County. On 19 January 1790, barely a month after his father’s will was proved, he and his wife Sally sold his interest in the inherited plantation to his brother Phillips Ivey. He must have left the area almost immediately, for Benjamin does not appear in the 1790 tax list, compiled mainly in March and April that year. He and his wife are, however, named in the will of his father in law, John Reese, dated 1 December 1792 and proved on 9 October 1794. The will distributed the estate equally among ten of the Reese children, and gave five shillings each to three other daughters: “my beloved daughter

Sally Ivy, wife of Benjamin Ivy”,

Sucky Ivy wife of Philip Ivy (sic), and

1825 Nov. 21: BAISDEN  v.  Bill GOLD Inj.c awarded
To the worshipful the County Court of Southampton in Chancery sitting. 
Humbly complaining sheweth unto your worships your oratrix Lydia BAISDEN that she is the widow of a certain Samuel BAISDEN dec.d who died the last part of Dec.r last leaving a will which was duly admitted to record in this Court at the Jan.y term last, a copy of which is herewith filed & prayed to be made a part of this bill- that at the Same Court Charles G. GOLD qualified as the executor of the Said will being by it appointed the Sole Exor.- that the Said testator after several inconsiderable legacies [illegible in copy] the whole of his land & bequeathed the residue of his personal estate (after payment of his just debts) to your Oratrix- that afterwards the said GOLD made a sale of the personal estate (xcept the legacys) at which sale your Oratrix became a purchaser to a small amount, and other persons purchased the balance, which Sale to the other purchasers, was deficient for the payment of the debts only for a very small amount as your oratrix believes, only about eleven dollars,- that as the while property (except legacies) was after the payment of debt the property of your oratrix she Consented that she would take the rest of the property (except that which had been sold to others) and became herself responsible to pay the am.t due from the said estate that should be unpaid after applying to that purpose the am.t arising from the sale- that in Consequence of that arrangement, She executed a deed in trust to the said Exor., Conveying for his benefit her interest in the testator's estate to secure the payment aforesaid- that your Oratrix Can neither read nor write & that in Consequence of her ignorance she was impared upon in that transaction and the sum of Ninety four dollars 75 cents is spoken of as, 'the Consideration': but the Condition is the payment of the debts above spoken of- 
that your oratrix believes it is the intention of the said Exor. to enforce a sale of the property & make her accountable for more than the debts Contemplated in their agreement or the deed itself by chargeing her for the legacies which she did not purchase.- that a certain Johnson RAIFORD is the trustee to the said deed.- that she has reason to believe that she will be turned out of possession of her land under the deed & the same Perhaps sacrificed by sale when in fact there is little due from the estate of her husband dec.d; which would produce an irreparable injury to herself.- In tender consideration of the premises and in as much as your oratrix is 
without any manner of remedy unless this Court will interpose, it is prayed that the said Charles G. GOLD and the said Johnson RAYFORD (what are prayed defend. ts hereto) be restrained from selling the said land & other property above Conveyed or incommoding her in the possession thereof until a fair settlement Can be mad before a Comms.r of this Court shewing the am.t of the debts which were due from her testator- how far the Same have been discharged by the sales of the property to other purchasers, & a final decree rendered in this Cause, when she (as she has been always) will be willing to pay the Same or have a Sale of Such part of the Said Property as may be necessary- that the said defts. may answer hereto: 
& that the [illegible in copy] restrining & may issue & such general relief as may be equitable &c & as in duty &c.

1804 Jan 16: HARDY JOHNSON family got into the movement, and on January 16, 1804, HARDY paid 400 pounds for 718 acres on Juniper Swamp, east of Averasboro, east of the Black River. The seller JAMES WATSON, had owned the plantation since 1774. The deed refers to adjacent owners JOSHUA GIST and JOHN RAY, and was witnessed by JAMES PRITCHETT and WILLIAM WATSON. (20-880) On the same date, and with the same witnesses to deed, HARDY AND REBECCA conveyed "to son, WILLIAM JOHNSON" 300 acres of the 718 acres purchased from WATSON.(20-89) http://www.wayman.us/paf/pratt/pafn07.htm

1835, when the following certificate was submitted by friends regarding HARDY'S application for benefits under a recent enactment: "The undersigned having been for a number of years personally acquainted with HARDY JOHNSON, who immigrated to the State of North Carolina about thirty years ago from the State of Virginia, since which time he has been a resident of Cumberland County. Said JOHNSON having set up claim authorized by an Act of Congress for services rendered in the war of revolution to which, with others, he considers himself entitled from the exemplary life of MR. JOHNSON since he has resided in our County and his undoubted veracity, we have no hesitation in saying that we believe his claim to be just, and confidently hope he may receive that reward which his country holds forth to those who participated in the perils for independence. March 2, 1835 HECTOR STEWART JOEL WILLIAMS DUSHEE SHAW H, GODWIN FARQD CAMPBELL V. SMITH" The application was not acted upon. 
Researchers Notes: 
The last entry in the Pension Office was in 1834 to the effect that there was not sufficient proof; which doubtless prompted the above certification by HARDY JOHNSON friends and neighbors. The assumption is that HARDY JOHNSON died soon after the above paper was sent in, making the question moot. The parties signing the above statement were leading citizens of the Averasboro area; http://www.wayman.us/paf/pratt/pafn07.htm

1840: Census Moses J. Johnson
 I am searching for information on the parentage of William W. Johnson born September 1809 in Virginia. He was living in Marshall Co, MS by 1841 when he married Susan D. Hail. William W. Johnson had an uncle named Moses Jones Johnson b abt. 1785 in Virginia, who also moved to Marshall Co, MS. Moses J. Johnson died 1857. His Sardis Cemetery tombstone indicates him to be Col. MJ Johnson. Moses Jones Johnson mentioned in his will a brother James Johnson and a sister Dorothy Thomas. His nephew William W. Johnson was probably the brother of Evelina Johnson who married Henry Bowden. The family was livinging Southampton Co, VA at the time of the 1840 census enumeration. They had moved to Marshall Co, MS by 1846. Does anyone recognize this family? From: "Carol Shrader" < wi4k@cox.net> http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/johnson/2004-02/1078022852

The three youngest children are listed in the 1910 census with John and Louise Raiford. They are listed as adopted. If anyone can help me find out what happened to Joseph, Josephine and Alexander I would greatly appreciate it.

James City County was one of eight original shires designated in 1634. At that time it extended toward the southwest between Charles City and Isle of Wight (then Warrosquyoake), being terminated later by the boundary with North Carolina. South of the James River it was separated from Isle of Wight county by Lawne’s Creek and from Charles City County (later Prince George County) by Upper Chippokes Creek. James City was made the capitol of the colony in 1639 by an Act of the Assembly.
