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

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.

Teal is being used for Quaker dates, these are not the same as the Julian Calender for all the other information, these need to be transcribed to be used in a Julian Calender.


Quaker dates have not been translated Before the 1752 calendar change, the first month of the year was March. 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

1822 Michal Johnson comes in from Franklin Co. Tn where he came in 1783 before that he was from New Kent Co. Va

On this 6 day of August 1834 personally appeared before the county court th of the county of Howard in the State of Missouri Micah Johnson a resident of the county and state

aforesaid aged seventy seven years on the 14th day of August last, 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 7th 1832. That he was living in the County of New Kent in the State of Virginia at the commencement of the Revolutionary war, that

in the year 1775 a company of men then called minute men was raised and organized in the county of New Kent for the defense of the country against the British and placed under the

command of Captain Robert Turner. that this affiant was at the organization of this company drafted into it as a private and served under the same captain during the whole of his military

service. that about the year 1775 (the precise time he cannot recollect) he was called into actual service and marched with his company under the command of Captain Robert Turner to a place

in New Kent County, Virginia, called the “long bridge” across the Chickohomoney [sic: Chickahominy] River for the purpose of defending the country against an expected attack from

the British. that during this tour he was in actual service at least a month & a half. That he afterwards on two different occasions went in the same company under the command of the

same captain to the same place for the purpose of defending the country against attacks of the British troops and was in actual service during these two last mentioned tours first was four

months, but he cannot recollect the precise times at which he rendered these services. Afterwards in the year 1781 when Lord Cornwallis marched into Virginia he was again in actual

service as a drafted militia man in a company commanded by Capt Robert Turner and marched as far as Williamsburgh [sic: Williamsburg] in Virginia and was stationed there during part of the

time that Lord Cornwallis was besieged in Yorktown, and that about ten day before the capture of Cornwallis [on 19 Oct 1781] this affiant was taken sick and permitted by his captain to return

home. that he was in actual service as a private upon this occasion at least two months and a half. This affiant does not recollect that he ever received any written discharge. if he did, he has

long since lost it. he knows of no living witness by whom he can prove his services as a revolutionary soldier and in consequence of his great age and consequent loss of memory he is

unable to give a more circumstantial statement of his services as a soldier of the revolutionary war.
He cannot state with precission the length of his several services in the war but according to the best of his recollection he served not less than the period mentioned below as a

private. For eight months he served upon four several occassions as a drafted militiaman under Capt Robert Turner & for these services he claims a pension.

To the several questions directed to be propounded by the court the applicant answers
1st. He was born on the 14th of August 1746 in New Kent County in the State of Virginia
2. He has no record of his age
3. He was living in New Kent County, Virginia at the several times when he was called into the service. Since the revolutionary war he removed to Franklin County Virginia, resided there until

the year 1822, then removed to Patrick County in the same State where he resided until the year 1828 when he removed to Howard County in the State of Missouri where he now resides

4. He was drafted each service.
5. He cannot recollect the names of any of the regular officers with whom he served.
6. He does not recollect that he ever received a written discharge
7th. He states that he is known in his present neighbourhood with Reverend William M. Burton and Mr. John De hart and to James Hall (the second of whom has known him twenty and the

latter fifteen years) who can testify as to his character for truth and veracity and their belief of his services a soldier of the revolution.

He knows of no living witness by whom he can prove his services aforesaid.
He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or an annuity except the
present and he declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any agency in any State.

1834 ERA Robert Johnson in Patrick Co. Va

1803 Feb 19, Martha L. “Patsy” Robinson Johnson was born in Frederick Co. Virginia. Evidence suggests that she was the daughter of William Robinson and Martha Robinson of Orange Co. Va. Martha Robinson married Robert C. Johnson (ca 179801863) the son of Valentin Johnson and Ann Johnson of Orange Co. probably in the late 1820’s. The Johnson’s moved several time during the following 2 decades.


In 1833 they lived in Amherst Court House and at Lynchburg, where Robert Johnson was a merchant.


The next year in 1834 they were living in Patrick Co. Va. Where Robert Johnson was keeper of a Public house and served as master commissioner of the Patrick County superior court. The family was still in Patrick Co. as late as 1839, though Robert Johnson was operating the Red Sulphur Springs tavern that year.


In 1840-41 Robert Johnson was keeping tavern in Danvillle Va, while Martha and his daughters lived in Stanardsville (Greene Co)


The Johnson’s seemed to have settled by 1843 in Carroll Co. Va where Robert Johnson kept a tavern. Evidence in the collection suggests that he also operated a store and served as Hillsville postmaster and commissioner of the revenue. The couple had three daughter Ann Johnson, Martha Johnson and Alverda Johnson.

The Carroll County census for 1860 lists Robert Johnson as Insane. He was hospitalized in the Eastern Lunatic Asylum (Williamsburg Va) later that year and died there around Oct 23, 1860. By 1880 martha Johnson was living with her son in law John Early and his children in Carroll Co. Va. She did 1886 April 15.


Ann Johnson born 1828-1879, oldest daughter of Robert Johnson and Martha Robinson was born in Orange Co. Va. She married John Early born ca 1821 and the couple had several children, including Peter S. Early, Robert J. Early, James L. Erly, William H. Early and Martha Earlye ca 1851-864


Alverda “Buddie” Johnson born 1830-1916 married twice, first to James H. Hounshell in 1849. The couple had one daughter Martha Hounshell 1852-1865. After Hounshell’s death Alverda married Robert Toncrey born ca 1815 a local dentist, in 1863. The couples children included Mary E. Toncrey, Lauara E. Toncrey, and Alverda J. Toncrey.


Martha Loury Johnson born 1832-1916 married William Craig Thornton born 1825 died 1913 in 1848. William thornton worked at times as a tailor, a dry goods merchant and operator of Hillsville’s Thornton Hotel. He also served as justice of the peace. The couple raised a large family including ALverda R. Thornton, Emma R “Sissie” Thornton, Ann Eliza Thornton, Margaret B. Thornton, Martha Elizabeth Thornton, Ida May Thornton, Agnes W. Thornton, Jesse Maud Thornton, Dora N. Thornton, Robert Cave Johnson Thornton, and William Hiram Thornton.

William Lithgrow Robinson, Martha Robinson Johnson’s nephew was born around 1837. He enlisted in the Danville Blues on April 23, 1861, prior to enlistment he had worked as a clerk. In Oct 1861Robinson was hospitalized at Orange Court House, Virginia with periostitis. He returned to duty on Nov 18. He was again admitted to the hospital on March 11 for contusion of the leg and was discharged April 5, 1862. Robinon’s own letters indicate that he was infected with typhoid in 1861, probably resulting from the contaminated water at Manassa, where he wrote “ All the streams and springs were contaminated with putrefying bodies of men and horses. He also mentions being wounded in the leg during hand to hand combat in Oct 1861. By 1863 Robinson was working as deputy clerk of Hastings Courthouse and as Chief of Police in Danville Va. He died March 1 1914 and is buried in Danville’s Green Hill Cemetery.

Creating a sketch of this family proved difficult, Martha Robinson Johnson seems to have been known as “Mother” by both her children and her grandchildren, like wise Ann Johnson Early was referred to as “Sister Ann” by all family members. The prevalent use of nicknames with the correspondence compounds the difficulty in identifying individuals as does the large number of extended family of both Johnson’s and Robinson’s ( among Martha’s siblings mentioned in this collection ar Thomas A. Robinson, William R. Robinson, Norborne Robinson and Richard Robinson, named within the collection as siblings of Robert Johnson are Belfield C. Johnson, Benjamin V. Johnson, George W. Johnson and William B. Johnson, Mildred C. Collins, Lucy Legget, and Sallie AnnDickerson). The sketch above is based on the interpretations of documents and surviving public (especially census) records and therefore likely contain erros.


The collection contains the papers of the family of Martha . Robinson Johnson, 19th century matriarch of Carroll Co. Va.

Nathanael Greene] was his commander. Under him he was at the battle of Guilford [Guilford Courthouse NC] where his captain was killed. After the battle of Guilford he went to Ninety Six], he was at that place under Green all the time he stayed there at which place there were some skirmishes. The Enemy killed about 40 of Green’s men by blowing up a redoubt. He was discharged in South Carolina not far from Camden, between Ninety Six & Charlestown. he can’t tell what has become of his discharge never expecting to have any use for it. On this tour he served at least six months. He has no documentary evidence, nor does he know of any Person whose testimony he can procure who can testify to his service.

After the Royal Governor Lord Dunmore was forced out of Virginia late in 1775, there was little military activity in Virginia for several years. Harris served his first two tours of duty during this calm period.

“Ambermarle”: Albemarle County VA is the neighboring county southeast of Buckingham. Albemarle Court House is now Charlottesville.

“Cornwallis capitulated” at Yorktown on 19 October 1781.

“Green”: General Nathanael Greene took command of the Southern Department of the Continental Army late in 1780. After Cornwallis pursued Greene’s army from South Carolina to the Dan River near South Boston VA, Greene made a stand at Guilford Courthouse, six miles north of present Greensboro NC, on 15 March 1781. Using a battle plan that had succeeded at the famous patriot victory at Cowpens SC, Greene manned the first line with militia from North Carolina. The Virginia Militia formed the second line in a woods. A third line was manned by Continental soldiers. The first line dropped their still-loaded weapons and fled at the first charge of the British, leaving the brunt of the fighting to the Virginians in the second line. Amid the woods the lines broke up into clusters of men thrusting bayonets. When Cornwallis saw that he was in danger of losing, he ordered grapeshot fired, killing and wounding many on both sides. Although Cornwallis was technically the victor, the battle was so costly that he was forced to march to Wilmington NC to recover before resuming his advance into Virginia. The delay allowed the French naval and land forces, as well as the northern troops under George Washington, to prepare for the fateful siege at Yorktown.

“Ninety Six” was a British outpost in western South Carolina. After Guilford Court House, Greene took his army back south into the Carolinas, and during May and June of 1781 he laid siege to the well-entrenched British. There is no evidence that 40 Americans died when their redoubt was blown up: this is apparently an erroneous recollection of the Patriots’ attempt to tunnel to the British redoubt and blow it up. Upon hearing that British reinforcements were arriving from Charleston, Greene ended the siege with an unsuccessful frontal assault. He then returned with his troops to Camden SC to wait for cooler weather before resuming fighting.

“Lieutenant Washington”: This may be Lt. Col. William Washington, a cousin of George Washington who was also a brilliant commander.

The pension application of a Sgt. William Harris of Augusta County VA then Bourbon County KY is erroneously included in Lydia's file. The answers to interrogatories are also for this other William Harris. This error resulted in Lydia's receiving (after her death, son John Renfro Harris received) the higher pension appropriate for Sgt. William Harris.

John Renfro, Sr., aged 79 and his wife Ester Renfro age 75, testified they had known Lydia Harris over 60 years, and were present at the marriage of Lydia and William Harris. Lydia Harris died 11 May 1848. On Aug. 21, 1848 John R. Harris, administrator, of estate of Lydia Harris applied "for myself and the other children" for her pension from March 4, 1836 to April 22, 1838.
