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.

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

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 Linda Griffin; 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

I have attempted to fill in the names for the first posting below

To the honourable, the speaker and gentlemen of the house of Delegates. The petition of sundry inhabitants of the parish of Littleton in the County of Cumberland.

Humbly showeth
that the Rev. Mr. Christopher MacRae has for about seven years past been minister of the said parish during which time his conduct and behavior as a minister has given general satisfaction to the members of the church of England that tho he has not taken the oath of fidelity as required by law. We have good reason to believe he has I may instances showed himself a friend to the cause of liberty and that the reason of his not taking the said oath is owing to a scruple of conscience that your petitioners are just ----- a petition is set on ----- and to be ----- to your house by the ----- from the established church for the ----- of the said Mr. MacRae from the glebe, your petitioners therefore humbly ----- that as Rev, Mr. MacRae has hitherto behaved and conducted himself in a manner becoming his station, he may be permitted to remain on the glebe of the said parish and to continue the duties of his office -----
       Your petitioners further show that they look on it as a hardship the imposition of a triple tax on these who have not taken the said oath tho scruple of conscience and have always manifested a friendship to the Common Wealth. Your petitioners therefore further pray that a triple tax money not be imposed on such upon their giving personal or other security for their good behaviour.

1790: Following an Act of the General Assembly, the voters who voted for the two members to go to Congress are listed in the Cumberland County Deed Book for 1790. Because the first Federal Census was taken in 1790, it is important that researchers have access to those who had the privilege of voting and who used it. The following 264 voted for GILES.

Notes: This is Michael Johnson married to Sarah Watson

 

Sarah Winston

Sarah WOODSON was a brave pioneer woman. In the absence of her husband during the Indian Uprising of April 18, 1644, aided by Robert LIGON, she resisted an attack by the Indians, killing nine. She loaded the gun while LIGON fired, and hearing a noise up the chimney she threw the bed upon the coals, the stifling smoke bringing two Indians down, whom she dispatched. Her sons, Robert in the potato hole and John under the tub, were saved. For many years they were called "Potato Hole" and "Tub." Over the years this story has been passed on from one WOODSON generation to the next and as passed among the various families has varied a bit in details but not in Sarah's bravery in defending her children.

 

After John WOODSON'S death his Sarah married a DUNWELL and then a JOHNSON. On her death she left a combination inventory and nuncupative will which was recorded January 17, 1660/1. Bequests included John WOODSON, Robert WOODSON and Deborah WOODSON and Elizabeth DUNWELL.

http://webpages.charter.net/pepbaker/woodson.htm

 

Sarah Winston is reported to be the daughter of Isaac Winston and Sarah Dabney: Her brother is  recorded as Anthony Winston.

 

Robert Ligon

 

My notes in order for Robert Ligon in 1644 to be of aid he has to live close to Dr. John Woodson and wife Sarah so lets see if we can find him. Also Mr. Dunwell must also be in the area to Marry Sarah Winston

We also know that the Lands South of the James River or known as Flower De Hundred will go into Prince George Co. in 1703 when it forms.

 

Col. Thomas Ligon was baptized at Walsgrave-on-Sowe, Warwickshire, England, 11 January 1623/4. The grandson of a second son, I had little chance of inheriting titles, land, or fortune. King Charles I appointed my cousin William Berkley the royal governor of Virginia and, although I was just 16, I decided to join him in the New World.

 

On 18 April 1644 Indians attacked our settlements, massacring about 300. I was then at the home of Sarah Woodson, wife of Dr. John Woodson whom the Indians killed. Using my 8-foot gun, I killed 3 Indians with the first shot, then 2 with the second. I fired a third time as they fled, killing 7 in all. This gun with “Ligon” still carved in the stock, is now at the Virginia Historical Society. 

 

Around 1648-50 I married Mary Harris the daughter of Capt. Thomas Harris, and we were the parents of 7 children. 

 

Berkeley appointed me to represent him in many matters. Because colonial records for Henrico and Charles City counties were mostly destroyed, little evidence of my official acts remains

 

In 1656 I was a member of the House of Burgesses at Jamestown,  I was a member of “ye Committee for private Causes.”  Major William Harris my brother-in-law, was the other burgess representing Henrico County. I was a justice for Charles City County 1 August 1657,  county surveyor from 1667 to my death in 1675.

 

Mary survived me 29 years. Able to fend for herself, she never remarried. Like me, she was handy with a gun, earning a bounty for killing 2 wolves in 1678.  got into a dispute with our son William, and when she failed to evict him from her land, she left his heirs out of her will. http://www.virginians.com/redirect.htm?topics&3520

 

Notes: Sir William Berkley brought Stephen Johnson into the Colonies and received land at Neck of the Woods called Green Creek, or Green Swamp.

1818 Aug 14: Married Benjamin Johnson married Elizabeth T. Jordan Cartersville, Cumberland County Virginia

Notes: 1911 Aug 7, John Thompson Brown was taken to Round About Castle, by Mrs D.M. Walker Jr, daughter in law of Major D.M.Walker of Richmond, who served as Captain of Otey’s Battery in the War of 1861-65. Mrs. Walker then lived in Louisa Court House in the house where J. William Jones (General Lee’s Chaplain) was born. At that time the Farm included only 500 acres, and the homestead was occupied by Mrs. Walker’s mother, Mrs. Thomasia Johnson Fox the daughter of Thomas Johnson, the son of Thomas Johnson the Sheriff, the son of Nicholas Johnson, the son of (31) Thomas Johnson. Thomas Johnson son of Thomas Johnson the sheriff not having any sons, named his daughter Thomasia to perpetuate the name. The Homestead, then over two hundred years old was in fine condition.

 

At the time Mrs. Fox whose sister was the wife of John H. Montague or Richmond, was over eighty years old. Her husband was Beverly H. Fox, grandson of Dr. Meridith Fox of Louisa.

 

John Thompson Brown copied the following entries from the Johnson family bible ( published in Edinborough in 1744)

Nicholas Johnson born 10th day of October 1713

Elizabeth Johnson, wife of Nicholas Johnson born July 14th 1718

Mary Johnson, daughter of Nicholas Johnson and Elizabeth Johnson born October 29th, 1737

 

 In April 1913 Round About Castle, its contents, Bible and all was destroyed by fire.

 

 John Thompson Brown describes the Johnson coat of arms as a shield and bars with a cock on top and the motto (translated from latin) “Victory Always in a Fight”

 

He Credits much of the information on the descendants of (3) William Johnson to Mrs. Belle Porter Ellington who lived on Monument Avenue in Richmond, and who in a letter to John Thompson Brown dated 2-6-1912, identifies herself as the great-great-granddaughter of Benjamin Johnson who married Elizabeth T. Jordon on 8-4-1818 and lived in Cartersville, Cumberland County Virginia. This Benjamin John apparently was a son of Thomas Johnson the Sheriff, who married his cousin Nancy, and who was a member of the House of Burgess in 1761-5 along with (36) William Johnson. Mrs Ellington obtained her information frm “ Family Portraits, Bible records and old letters written by Elizabeth T. Jordan Johnson by Nancy Johnson ( Wife of Thomas Johnson the Sheriff). Pg 170 (Chesterfield County need rest of source)

Round About Castle:

 Apparently most of the clan of Johnson’s were Quakers and many of them settled around Louisa County Court House. Their farm originally was several thousand acres. ( Patrick Henry once lived on a part of it) and included the court house which was 5 miles from the Homestead, Round About Castle

On the 26th day of September, 1832 personally appeared before the county clerk of
Cumberland Obediah Johnson, a resident of Goochland County in the State of Virginia who being first duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the act of Congress passed June the 7th 1832. That he is a native of the County of Cumberland and State of Virginia and has always resided in the county of Cumberland until recently when he moved across the James River to the County of Goochland where he now resides. That he is 67 years of age and that the register of the same is at his son's in the County of Goochland.

That in the year 1780 as well as he now recalls he was drafted for a three months tour of duty in the militia of Virginia from the County of Cumberland and marched from said County under Capt Charles Ballow and formed the Southern Army under General Gates. That this officiant was in the battle of Camden when Gates was defeated and after his term of service ended he was discharged & returned home.

That afterwards in January 1781, he was again drafted for a three month tour which he performed under Captain Richard Allen from the County of Cumberland and was stationed at the Long Bridge.

That as soon as that term expired or very shortly afterward he marched with Captain William Meredith from Cumberland County to join the Marquis De LaFayette near Richmond and remained with the army in service until the company was discharged which from a companion of opinions and resolutions with some of the members of that company was three months.

That he afterwards marched from Cumberland under Captain Richard Allen to the Siege of York and was there in service when Lord Cornwallis surrendered. The last term was also a three months term.

This officiant also states that between the time of his service under Captain Meredith and his trip to the Siege of York he was called out under Lieutenant James GILLIAM and served for about 10 days at Caroline. He hereby relinquishes any claims whatever to a pension or amenity except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any agency of any State.

Richard Taylor dec'd

 

John C. Taylor was John Creed Taylor, youngest brother of Demaris. He was named for their Uncle Creed Taylor, who was born in 1766 in Cumberland Co., & died 17 Jan 1836 at "Needham" in Cumberland Co., Virginia. Creed Taylor was a Chancellor of Virginia, and a member of the General Assembly.


Obituary of Richard Taylor, father of Demaris, from the Richmond Enquirer, issue of 4 Apr 1844 (AND he was NOT 99 years old):

"THE LAST REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY GONE!!

Died at his residence in the county of Cumberland on Friday the 15th of February in the 99th year of his age, Mr. Richard Taylor.

Mr. Taylor was a soldier of the Revolution and fought in various battles among which were the battles at Guilford C.H., Siege of York &c.

During the course of a long life, he was universally called the strictly honest man. But a few days before his death, he said to the friends that surrounded his bed side, that he feared the result of the ensuing Presidential contest and that he had thought for a long time that, if the self styled Whig Party should get into power that our liberties would be gone forever, if Henry Clay was at their helm.

He died as he had lived, a consistent Democrat, believing that the principles our forefathers in their struggle for Independence, and that they are or ought to be, equally dear to the rising generation.

Mr. Taylor was the last of the Revolutionary soldiers in Cumberland County, and has left an aged and affectionate wife and several children to bemoan his loss."

Louisa Henderson

Louisa Henderson Johnson, who was buried in the Guinea Church Cemetery, was the daughter of Judge William Perkins, he was a prominent lawyer of Cumberland County. Mrs. Louisa Johnson was also the granddaughter of Dr. Robert Henderson. He was a prominent physician and also owned, at one time, many acres of land in Cumberland County http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/va/cumberland/cemeteries/guineach01.txt

Hugh Johnson 

Dr. Robert Henderson

Hello Nancy,
I looked at all my Cumberland books, but could not find any Hendersons listed in subtitles. The only thing I found was under Henderson Johnson - Henderson being the first name.
At the beginning it states "My family's roots go back to Dr Robert Henderson. who came from Ireland in 1816 and settled in Cumbeland County at Northfield." That is all - the rest is about the Johnson family with a comment that her father, Robert Henderson Johnson was named for Dr Henderson. I don't know if she would have other information on the Henderson family, but none is covered in her article. The submitter was Mrs Harold Foster - but no address given. You could see if the Cumberland Hist Society would have her address. If you write them mention the article was in the first book. http://genforum.com/cgi-bin/pageload.cgi?Johnson::va/cumberland::183.html

Judge William Perkins,

Earliest or First
Known Generation

1. Thomas? and Elizabeth (______) FLIPPEN

Thomas Flippen may be the husband of our earliest known ancestor Elizabeth Flippin. He was a resident of Gloucester Co., VA in 1704 where he was paying a Quit Claim Rent in Kingston Parish for 300 acres and was listed as Thomas Fliping. The Quit Rent was required of all Virginian landowners who had to pay the King one shilling for each 50 acres bought. Since his name was the only one found at that time in Gloucester Co., he is believed by many researchers to be the husband of Elizabeth Flippen who left a will in Cumberland Co., VA.

Elizabeth and her children removed from Gloucester Co. (perhaps after her husband's death) to Goochland Co. with the Bedfords and Lilles (her children's families). Goochland was eventually divided and they found themselves in Cumberland Co. in 1749. Her husband was already deceased by the time Elizabeth wrote her will on 21 Jun 1747 in Cumberland Co. The will was probated 23 Jan 1758. Nothing else is known about Elizabeth or her maiden name. According to the will, Elizabeth (and Thomas?) had six children. The birthdates are approximate dates and should not be accepted as a fact.
