FUSHIA COLOR IS MINE AND PEGS RELATIONS

BLUE IS CLUES TO HUDSON JOHNSON

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

Purple is Cousin Joe Matlock Research

Maroon is connecting of Johnson surname researcher to A. Euell Johnson

Lineages not in branches I1a, I1b or I1c are found distributed at low frequency throughout Europe Group Sessile Oak http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hjohnson/haplogroup.i.html

 

Olive is the DNA LINE of Leonard Johnson and Todd Johnson

Haplogroup I1b -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. Group Norway Spruce  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hjohnson/haplogroup.i1b.html

 

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.  From: Mary E.

(These are my Mother's people. At that time, the surname may have been MEADORS. The elder Jason was born 1704 in Eassex Cty, VA and died 1778 in Anson County, NC. Lewis was born in 1730 in Exssex County and died in 1804, also in Anson County. Jason Meadors, Jr. was born about 1734 in Essex County and died about 1834 in Chesterfield County, SC.)

Note: The names Wheeler, Meadows, Johnson and Colemans were connected from Cumberland to Prince Edward Co. Va:::This was around 1745 to 1876.::

James Meadows and Martha Johnson lived in Prince Edward Co. James Meadows was born in Prince Edward County in 1827. Martha Susan Johnson research has produced little information. As a family, I have six children listed for them.

It appears that I cut something out of here by error. I have an Ailsey Phoebe Wheeler that married David W. Meadows in 1822. David was born about 1801 near Bristol, VA. Ailsey was born about 1800 in Washington County, VA. David was a son of Joel Thomas Meadows and Henrietta "Hannah" McReynolds. They were some on my ancestors. I will certainly pass this on to my Meadows cousins.

The Wheelers were from Buckingham Co: Posted on Rootsweb.com message board for Prince Edward Co.Va.

Hi. Thought I'd pass on a couple of items concerning locations. Hope it is helpful in some way. Campbell County was formed in 1782 by cutting it off almost totally from Bedford. The Fishing Creek mentioned is probably the Fishing Creek of Bedford which flows out of the Upper James (called Fluvanna in old days); now in Campbell where the Lynch family had lived.  From: William Hunt

REVOLUTIONARY WAR PENSION APPLICATION - JAMES JOHNSON

 

James Johnson lived in Wayne County, KY from 1898 to 1830. He relocated to Washington County, Mo and died there

 

Revolutionary War Vet. Pension Application

 

On this fifth day of February in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty-three personally appeared before........ the Justices of the County Court of Washington County, Missouri aged seventy three years ......That he was born in 1759 in Louisa County State of Virginia but was brought up for the most part in Bedford County Va but in dividing the County he fell into the part

called Campbell that after the Revolutionary War he lived two years in South Carolina he afterwards lived six years in Sullivan Co. Tennessee and then thirty three years in Wayne County, Kentucky that afterwards he removed to Washington County Missouri where he now resides.

 

He stated that he was living with his brother in Amherst County Va when he first enterd the service---that he volunteered in the summer of 1776 under Col Joseph Cabel with Capt Nicholas Pamplin---that he marched to defend WilliamsBurg from an expected attack from the British whose fleet then lay in Hampton roads. He continued in service till the end of November or December of the same year and then left the service inconsequence of sickness his term of actual service having been four or five months.

 

Late in the spring of 1780 he volunteered under Col Preston with Capt John Hays and Thomas English to go against the Tories in Washington Co Va whom they dispersed taking some prisoners forcing some to take the state oath and give security for their behavior and having others enrol themselves with the troops.

They were then discharged with the thanks of their officers. But the same day ...... . he and most of his companions in arms volunteered .......and went by the way of Chisels old Mines, Harboards ferry and Flower Gap into the hollows of the Dan River in North Carolina against the Tories whom they dispersed or took prisoners. He was discharged about the 10th of September and reached home on the 28th having been in the service four or five months. During this time he furnished his own horse and arms and scarcely tasted salt or bread owing to the extreme scarcity occasioned by the hard winter that had proceeded.

 

In the summer of 1781 he volunteered under Col James Galloway and marched against Col Tarlton, but before they met him he turned and marched back. This time he was out about two weeks, besides the times above stated he was out in several short tours against the Tories guarding prisoners and other services.

1759 Born JAMES JOHNSON (Pension S16891) served in the VA Line, was born in 1759 in Louisa Co, VA and was raised in Bedford Co, VA, and was living with a bro (not named) in Amherst Co, VA at enlistment. After the War, he lived for two years in that part of Campbell County, Virginia which was formerly a part of Bedford Co, VA, then moved to South Carolina for 6 yrs, then moved to Sullivan Co, Tennessee for 33 yrs, then to Wayne Co, KY, then to Washington Co, Missouri where he applied for his pension on 5 Feb 1833, In 1833 his brother, John JOHNSON, was of Washington Co, Missouri, and in 1833, a James J. JOHNSON was a JP for Washington Co, MO, but no relationship to soldier was stated.

The above was extracted from Virgil D. White, Genealogical Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Abstract Files but is partially incorrect; i.e., the original affidavit shows that he lived in Sullivan County, Tennessee for 6 years and in Wayne Co, KY for 33 years. James and John JOHNSON and their brother, William, were sons of Benjamin and Mary MOORMAN Johnson (Miller) of Bedford/Campbell Co, VA, and apparently elder half-brothers of Pleasant Moorman Miller* who removed to Hawkins County, Tennessee in 1796 from Lynchburg, Campbell County, Virginia, to Hawkins County, Tennessee in 1796, and to Knox County in 1800.

Notes: Johnson Mountain

 

Thomas Overstreet was the first person of that name to appear in the records of Bedford County. In 1755, just one year after the formation of the county from Lunenburg County, he made a purchase of 400 acres near the headwaters of the southwestern tributary of the Otter River. This creek came to be known as Orrix Creek, and flows in front of a low mountain ridge known as Johnson Mountain. This creek was named for Benjamin Orric, who had obtained land along the creek as one of the first landowners in the area. This portion of the Virginia colony was basically wilderness to these original settlers who started obtaining land grants along the Otter River in the late 1740's. The Native Americans had of course inhabited the area for centuries. While they didn't claim ownership of the land, they did consider the settlers as intruders into their ancestral hunting areas. And as more and more settlers moved into the area, conflicts were inevitable. However, the English king did claim ownership to the land. And, to encourage more settlement, he granted off large tracts of land to wealthy colonists living in the eastern part of the colony. These patent holders then sold off such subdivided tracts to settlers as they came in. Such men as Obadiah Woodson, Archibald Cary, George Walton, and Richard Randolph patented huge tracts in what is now Bedford County. In fact, Richard Randolph patented in 1755, the same year as Thomas Overstreet appeared, 14,000 acres. This grant included some of the headwaters of Falling Creek, another southwestern tributary of the Otter River, and began a few miles to the northwest of the Orrix Creek site. Between these two creeks flowed another creek, called Island Creek. The Overstreets would become involved in the future of all three of these creeks.  http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/g/o/d/Bryan-S-Godfrey/GENE26-0104.html

Note: He must have been one of those old boys on earlier tithes list in Lunenburg Co. Va. I don't know. Its interesting to note that apparently he didn't have a son named Benjamin Johnson in his will, when he wrote his last will. From  William Hunt Researcher

Thomas Johnson, Andrew Johnson, William Johnson, James Johnson, Christopher Johnson

Rachel Johnson, Elizabeth Johnson, Mildred Johnson and some Say John Johnson

 

Thomas Johnson is untraced

Andrew Johnson untraced:

William Johnson untraced::

James Johnson married Abigail Barton:

Rachel Johnson untraced:

Elizabeth Johnson untraced:

Christopher Johnson married Elizabeth Moorman Aug 16 1758 in Bedford Co. Va.

John Johnson untraced:

 

 

Research Notes:  Benjamin Johnson who died Aug 18 1769 is report to be son of John Johnson "The immigrant" 

 

This is the CONFUSING LINES I am on with Hudson Johnson:

 

They (john Johnson the Immigrant) have a grandson James Johnson married to Rebekah Martin This is the James Johnson reported to have died in 1778 Lunenburg Co. Va well James Johnson married to Rebekah Martin is paying Tithes in Henry County Until 1780. Then he is no longer Traced and in 1782 the widow Rebekah Martin Johnson re married Rev. Thomas Murrell and left for Carters Valley Washington Co. NC with my Hudson Johnson-Johnston and wife Agness.

Also this James Johnson is reported to have two children with him having a death date of 1778 and still having kids until 1790 LOL

 

So Bill Johnson if you can it would be of interest to numerous Johnson researchers if you would be able to take a DNA Test. AS lots of confusion and mis interpitations lie in front of you and William Hunt as it seems you both are going to have a connection to the Above

Note Dunmore’ War was a conflict between the Colony of Virginia and the Native Americans of the Ohio Valley. Following increased raids and attacks on frontiersmen in this region, the Royal Governor of Virginia, Lord Dunmore, organized a large force of militia and marched to Fort Pitt arriving at the end of August 1774. Dunmore also ordered Colonel Andrew Lewis, commander of the southwestern Virginia militia, to raise an army in the south and meet Dunmore’s force along the Ohio River. Lewis formed militia companies from Augusta, Bedford, Botetourt, Culpeper, Dunmore, Fincastle, and Kentucky counties. After Colonel Lewis’ victory at the Battle of Point Pleasant, Dunmore successfully negotiated a peace treaty with the Delaware, Mingo, and Shawnee chiefs that prevented them from settling or hunting south of the Ohio River.
