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 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. The correct date is inserted

Notes: Francis Mackemie

He qualified under the Toleration Act of 1689 and was the pastor of a congregation on Elizabeth River until his death occurred in 1716.  But the person who was regarded as the real founder of Presbyterianism in the United States was Francis Mackemie, who came from Ireland and
settled in
Accomac County, Virginia.  He was licensed to preach in 1699 and lived a time in Virginia, but the greater part of his life in America was spent in the North.  After his removal from Virginia, Presbyterianism practically died out in the eastern part of the state. 

"It is to Mackemie rather than to Mackie that Foote gives the honor of being the first in Virginia.  He says: 'The interest attached to the name, birthplace, and labors of Mackemie arises from the circumstances, that he was, in all probability, the first consistent Presbyterian minister in the United States; certainly the first in Virginia.

"In 1738 a group of Presbyterians led by John Caldwell, 'who are about to settle in the
back parts of Virginia,' requested the Synod of Philadelphia to appoint persons to wait upon the Governor and Council of Virginia, 'in order to procure the favor and countenance of the government of that province to the laying a foundation of our interests."

"The governor assured the
Philadelphia Synod that the Presbyterians might settle in VA and not be disturbed by Virginian authorities." http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/va/lunenburg/misc/cumbpar.txt

Summary The certificates issued by the commissioners of the provision law include date, a description of the item impressed including its value, and the name of the owner of the item. Court booklets and lists compiled by the county courts contain excerpts from the court proceedings and lists of authenticated certificates. The commissioner’s books recorded the date payment was authorized, the name of the claimant, and a description of the property. Other Format Available on microfilm. Public Service Claims. Commissioner’s Books (Nos. 1-3, reel 5; Nos. 4-5, reel 6). Biog./Hist. Note During its session begun in May 1780 the General Assembly passed an act authorizing the governor to impress supplies needed by the American army. The governor appointed commissioners of the provision law in each locality to carry out the terms of the act.

1846/47 November 11,  in Accomack County John Quincy Adams married (date unknown) an Elizabeth Susan Johnson.

Notes: I have a copy of a letter produced by some distant relative which provides in relevant part:

"I am Charles G. Adams, Jr. born July 4, 1913 in Crittenden, Virginia; son of Charles G. Adams, Sr. (born August 1st, 1881) (
Crittenden, Virginia) and Sarah Bush Adams; the grandson of John Quincy Adams, Jr. (born in Accomac County, Virginia 1846 and Sarah Gray Adams; the great grandson of John Quicy Adams and Elizabeth Johnson Adams; and great-great grandson of Samuel Adams and ?."

"I was told by my grandfather, John Quincy Adams, Jr., that he and his family moved from
Accomac County, Virginia to Crittenden, Virginia just before the Civil War. He was 14 years old at the time. An examination of the records indicate that my great-grandfather, John Q. Adams and Elizabeth Johnson Adams purchased property in the Crittenden area in the year 1860, and they also sold their property in Accomac County in 1860. The records in Accomac also show that my great, great grandfather was named for Samuel Adams.

If you, or others, have any information pertaining to these individuals, I would love to share

Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents & Grants, 1623-1666 [Nell Marion Nugent, Cavaliers and Pioneers (Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, 1983), vol. I, p. 158]: [p. 31] Mr. John NUTHALL, 300 acres Northampton County, Virginia July 27, 1645. At the head of Hungars Creek, adjacent land formerly belonging to John HALLAWAYE, running Ely. etc. For transactions of 6 persons: John NUTHALL, twice; Eliza, his wife; John Towson; Andrew Ditch; John Evere.

Francis Doughtery is next heard of as pastor of Hungars parish on the Eastern Shore of Accomack County, Virginia. The Virginian church had been strictly Anglican up to 1652, when the colony submitted to parlimental authority. After that date the several parishes were left to go their own ways without interference by legislative acts of reform. Doughty came here, probably, in a modified Anglicanism, having no surplice or Book of Common Prayer, but otherwise very much what it had been prior to 1652. Of his pastorate at Hungars, very little is recorded.

 It is mentioned that in 1655, he instigated a witchcraft prosecution, and in 1656 was favorably mentioned in the will of a parishioner. In June of 1657, he was married again, to Ann Graves, who had the distinction of marrying 3 successive rectors of Hungars parish. Ann and her sister, Verlinda, were the daughters of Capt. Thomas Graves, one of the original adventurers of the Jamestown Colony, and had both been born in Accomack county, Va. Verlinda was married to the Governor of Maryland, and this fact gives rise to the misconception that the maiden name of Bridgett Doughty, the 1st wife of Frances, was Stone. Gov. Stone was known to refer to Frances as his brother-in-law, and someone seeing this thought it must mean that Bridgett and the Governor were brother and sister, making her Bridgett Stone.

In reality, the wives of Francis Doughtery and the Governor were the sisters, Ann and Verlinda. Ann Graves married, before July 10, 1637, the Rev. William Cotton, who, on that date patented land in right of his wife Ann Graves. Rev. Cotton, whose mother resided at Bunbury, Cheshire, England was the first minister of Hungars parish, the first formally organized church on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. He left a will of August 1640, naming "Brethrin-n law Capt. William Stone" and another as overseers of his estate.

Ann then married, by 1642, the Rev. Nathaniel Eaton, who came to Virginia from Massachusetts, where, in 1638, he had become the first master of the school that later became Harvard University. He had been born England in 1609, and came to Massachusetts in 1638. His father had been a clergyman in England, and his brother was the respected first Governor of the New Haven Colony.

Governor Winthrop of New York mentions in his journal that Eaton, after he went to Virginia, was a "drunken preacher". In 1642, he assigned land at Hungars Creek due him by right of intermarriage with the ""widdowe and relict of William Cotton, Clerke", (often a misspelling for the word cleric). By 1646 Eaton had left the colony, deserting his wife, and returned to England, where he lived privately until the restoration of King Charles II. Conforming to the ceremonies of the Church of England, he was fixed at Biddlefield, where he became a bitter persecutor of the Dissenters, and died in prison for debt.

 In June of 1657 Ann married the Reverend Doughty, rector of Hungars, but moved with him to Charles County, Maryland by 1660. The earliest reference to the presence of Rev. Doughty in Charles County is found in a bill of debt, a paper that in those days performed the function of the modern promissory note. The bill shows that in June 1660, the minister promised to pay George Short a certain amount of tobacco either at Pickawaxen in Charles County or at Potomac, on the Virginia side. About January or February of 1661, a Captain William Battin, who kept a store at Pickawaxen, summoned Mr. Doughty to county court, but the matter was adjusted and the case never came to trial. Meanwhile, Francis had organized a church and was officiating as pastor.

The earliest evidence of this is the suit of Joan Mitchell, filed in the summer of 1661, which called for trial in the court session of September. Earlier references show that Joan Mitchell had for some time been under popular suspicion of witchcraft, an allegation she stoutly denied. At this particular time the imputation had again been raised and, in self-defense, she brought suit against four persons, alleging slander. Her petition in the case shows that she felt that Mr. doughty was shielding her enemies. "Whereas your poor petitioner is most shamfully used and her good name taken away from her she dowth desire that she may be righted and that shee may be searched by able women whether she bee such a person or no which those persons say I am and if I bee found to bee such a one I may bee punished by law or els to bee cleared by proclimation and that the worshipfull bench would take it into ther serious consideration how that I am abused and my good name taken from mee withoud disart and I most humbly desire your worships that I may have the law against them and I your poore petitioner shall bee bound to pray for you and yours. I desire YT Mr. Francis Doughty may bring those persons to light that have raised these scandalous reports of mee for hee says that I aslluted a woman at church and her teeth fell acking as if shee had bin mad and I desired him to tell mee who had raysed this report of mee and hee would not and so from one to another my good name is taken away that I cannot bee at quiet for them for it is allther delight and table talke how to doe mee a mischief being a poore distressed widow but my trust is in God that he will plead my case for mee and will never suffer the poor and innocent to perish by the hands of ther enemes for of a sunday as I was going to church with too of Capt. Fendalls folks Mr. Walker hurled stones at me as I was going a long and so hid hemself again which for any thing that I know his master might set him on to mischiefe mee and hee himself wrongs mee by word and I your petioioner shall be ever bound to pray for you.

" The suit of Joan Mitchell against the minister went no further than the complaint. The trial was postponed to the November court and at that session the case was formally dismissed because neither party appeared. Another case that came before the September, 1661 court had some reference to ministerial work of Mr. Doughty. Eleanor Empson, widow of William Empson, was about to be married to John Morris. The pastor was to have performed the marriage ceremony, but he received a note forbidding the banns. Mrs. Empson brought suit against the supposed author of the note, alleging defamation, and called Enoch Doughty as her witness. Says the court record: "Mr. Enoch Doughty aged 22 years or thereabouts swore and examined in open court sayeth that he saw a note sent by Richard Watson to his father Mr. Francis Doughty to forbid the banns of matrimonie betweene Elenor Emmpson and any other person for that she was his wife before God this to the best of this depanants knowledge to bee the substance of the noat and further sayeth not.

" The supposed author of the note came into court and stated that, being a blind man, he had to trust in the fairness of others in the writing of his messages, and that he disclaimed any interest in the widow's matrimonial affairs. There is nothing in the court records to indicate clearly the denominational character of Mr. Doughty's church.

When the minister came from Virginia to Maryland, the English republic was still under under Cromwell’s rule, and Anglican worship was illegal. On May 5, 1660, the republican period ended with the reinstatment of the monarchy and parliament's order that henceforth all writs should be issued in the name of King Charles. With that act, the followers of the old worship services were free to return to some form of Anglicanism. Such was the situation when the Charles County church was formed, and, in all probability, the church was modeled after the modified Anglicanism of Virginia.

It is at least certain that it adopted the vestry form of government so familiar in the Anglican system. But, by April 22nd, church papers show that Doughty had left the parish. Mary Doughty Vanderonck remained in Maryland, after the departure of her father. She apparently had come to Virginia either with or soon after her father, and found a home in Charles County. Here, she acquired repute as a healer of the sick, for which service she demanded good fees, and sometimes, when her patients were reluctant to pay their bill, she took them to county court for due settlement of her claims.

Beginning on April 22, 1662, the court records accord her the new name of Mrs. O'Neal after her recent marriage to Hugh O'Neal, planter and active man of the county. To Enoch Doughty now fell the task of guarding his fathers interests in Maryland, and from the absent minister came a letter of attorney, prolix with legal verbiage, bearing the date of June 4, 1662, and beginning thus: "Know all men by thees presant that I Francis Doughtie now minister of Rappahonnock county in Virginia doe authorise immpower and intrust my dearly loving sone Enock Doughtie of Charles countie in the Province of Mariland my trew and lawfull atturney....." It may be noted that one of the 3 subscribing witnesses of this document was John Washington, one of the original Washington emigrants from England, and the ancestor of George Washington.

Francis then removed himself to the parishes of Sittingbourn and Farnham that lay on each side of the Rappahannock River at the lower end of Old Rappahannock County. 1665 listed The Reverend Doughty listed in church papers as the Minister of both parishes.

The following item is found recorded in the Old Rappahannock county court papers: "We whose names are hereunder written being vestrymen for the parish of Sittingbourne and Farnham do here unanimously agree for the future maintenance of Mr. Francis Doughty the next two ensuing years and it is agreed upon as followeth: that Mr. Francis Doughty shall receive yearly of each parish above sd. Sixty pounds sterling to be paid in tobacco according to act of Assembly the said tobacco to be paid in caske without salery or other charge to the afore said Mr. Doughty revoking and disannullingal former orders bargaines and contracts whatsoever made by and between the said Mr. Francis Doughty and both or either the respective vestrys of the parishes aforesaid to the true performance of which the said Mr. Doughty and the vestry of both parishes have hereunto set their hands this 3rd day of November, 1665.

" The Reverend Doughty was popular with a large part of his congregation, but stirred others to high indignation. He must have been a vital person, for in the 5 years that he was there, he organized and revived the church work. In Sittingbourn Parish, he planned, bought land for, and erected churches, one near Cabin Point and one at the mouth of Occupacia Creek. He also built a church at Piscataway, and a church on the north side. At Farnham Parish, to which he gave half his time, he organized the vestry. While popular with the people, Francis was repeatedly unseated, either because of the control of the church by the state, or because of the vagaries of his own personality. He was accused of implacably censuring his parishioners conduct, and of refusing to administer the sacrament of communion on Easter Sunday. For this he was tried, his accusers being not only vestrymen, but also justices of the court. This charge made it very difficult for things to happen other than for Francis to be convicted.

This trial aroused much interest, and grew largely out of the quarrel over whether he should be paid in sterling or in tobacco. It preceded by more than a hundred years the famous "Parson's case", which has been immortalized by the fiery eloquence of Patrick Henry. At the outcome of the trial, Francis was "put out" as minister of the parish, and after making provision for his wife and son Enoch to continue their residence in Virginia, he departed. His destination, as indeed, any further knowledge of his life, is unknown.
