Pedigree Policy: Each participant has been asked to submit his own pedigree and all effort is being made to present the pedigrees as received. As one would expect, this administrator will not alter any pedigree. However, I may add notes or comments (before, within or after a pedigree chart) in parenthesis and signed (“HJ”). Whether short or long, famous or not, each pedigree is of equal importance in trying to solve the problems of genealogical research where records have been lost or have not existed.

Note from Joseph Henry Johnson:   A long (several pages) genealogical footnote about the William Johnston (of Virginia) family in the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography begins:  "William Johnston, of Spotsylvania County, was probably a native of Scotland; but nothing positively is known of his origin."  I think that is still as true today as it was in 1930.  The only clue I have to William's whereabouts prior to Spotsylvania County is a statement in an old Larkin Chew family chart in the Library of Virginia that says Ann Chew married William Johnston of Gloucester County.  And Gloucester County's courthouses burned three times prior to 1865!
