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

"fiftyacres more".

 

The will of William Newton, of Westmoreland county, probated
May 30, 1722, mentions

"wife Elizabeth",

sons "John", "William", "Benjamin",

daughters "Frances", "Sarah", "Elizabeth",

 and wills land in Westmoreland and King George county, and in Great Britain.

Is this William Newton, the same as one referred to in John Gerrard's will in 1711? If so, how is it explained?

Did this William Newton marry first Barbara Gerrard (or Johnson, for John Gerrard calls his mother, brother and sisters all "Johnson", probably half brothers and sisters),

and did he marry later "Elizabeth" (mentioned in his will).

If so, who was she, and which was mother of his children, who were all under sixteen at date of will March 1, 1720-'21?

This William Newton leaves "all my estate of lands and money in the Kingdom of England or Great Britain" to his son John Newton who is believed to have died unmarried and intestate, as we find that his brother, "Major" William Newton, in his will of 1789, leaves the English property to his eldest son, John Newton, of Stafford county.

"Major" William Newton married Margaret, daughter of Col. James or Joseph Monroe, of Pope's Creek, Virginia. Information is desired of their descendants, who intermarried with Bronaughs, Berrys and Foxes. MRS. JOHN FREDERICK MAYNARD. 352 Geneva street, Utica, N.Y.

1720 to 1760. Old Stafford County Virginia, Overwharton Parish
This Parish was co‑extensive with Stafford County, covering a part
of what was once Washington Parish, extending about eighty miles
along the Potomac, in breadth about four and twenty miles, embracing
within its territory what is now Prince William, Loudoun, Fairfax,
Alexandria Counties and a part of Fauquier until 1730, when Prince
William County was taken from Stafford, and Hamilton Parish
was
erected, succeeding Overwharton as the frontier parish. Of the early
history of Overwharton Parish and its rectors, but little is known.

Overwharton parish originally embraced what are now the counties of
Stafford, Prince William, Fairfax, Loudoun, Arlington and the eastern
watershed of Fauquier
, or perhaps a more accurate statement would be
that this vast territory was yet to be subdivided into the parishes
which it afterwards comprised. As a matter of fact parochial
jurisdiction in Overwharton shortly after its formation was confined
to a comparatively small strip of land along the Potomac about eighty
miles in length and from three to twenty miles in width The Rev. Alex-
ander Scott, 21 minister of Overwharton from 1711 until his death in
1738 states, in a report to the Bishop of London in 1724, that there
were 650 families in his parish, 80 to 100 communicants, one church
and several chapels. 22 (Fauquier During the Proprietorship/ Meads
Old Churches) book including index was written in 1899 and covers

In 1723 Colonel William Fitzhugh (circa 1685-1713) had been dead ten years. Richard Hews (Hues) died testate in Northumberland County in 1714 and bequeathed this land in Stafford County to his step-son, John Johnson. The latter had also died testate in 1721 and bequeathed the land to his half-sister, Mary Ball (circa 1708-1789) (who married Captain Augustine Washington on March 6, 1731) and in whose name it should have been listed in 1723.

By her last will and Testament Mrs. Mary (Ball) Washington bequeathed this 600 acres on Accakeek Creek to her son, General George Washington and some few years later he gave it to his nephew, Robert Lewis, Esq., who sold it.

Major Lawrence Washington (1659-1698) by will bequeathed to his only daughter Mildred Washington “all my land in Stafford County, lying upon Hunting Creek… by estimation 2,500 acres to her and her heirs forever.” Mildred Washington married John Lewis (169?-1718) and shortly after his death, Colonel Roger Gregory of King and Queen County and thus this land should have been in the name of Mildred Gregory on the 1723 quit rent roll.

In 1726 Colonel and Mrs. Gregory conveyed this property to her brother, Captain Augustine Washington and the Mount Vernon mansion stands upon this tract. http://www.rootsweb.com/~vastaffo/rentroll1723.htm

Robert Porteus married the daughter of Edmund Jennings, Esq., son of Sir Edmund of Rippon, England.  One of his places in Gloucester county was called "New Bottle," after a place of similar name in Scotland owned by him.  The Bishop, his son, had "a singular picture which though not in the best style of coloring was yet thought valuable by Sir Joshua Reynolds as a speci- men of the extent to which the art of painting had at that time reached in America, and he himsself very highly prized it as exhibiting a faithful and interesting representation of his father's residence." (See "Life of Bishop Porteus," by Rev. Robert Hodgson.)

     The neighborhood of the Porteuses in Virginia was certainly respectable.  At an interval of a mile along the York River shore, or up the numerous creeks were well built brick houses, some few of which still remain.  Going down the river from the Porteus Mansion, one passed successively the lands of the Smiths of Purton, the family of Capt. John Stubbs, the Burwells of Carter's Creek. the War- ners, of Warner Hall, the Pages of Rosewell, the Manns of Tim- berneck, the Perrins of Sarah's creek, etc., while on the opposite shore, were the houses of Edmund Jenings, Nathaniel Bacon, Dudley Digges, the Ballards, the Reades, the Smiths, Chismans, Calthorpes etc.--families of first consequence in the colony, having good libraries, most of them of proved descent from respectable En- glish gentlemen, and all of them displaying coasts-of-arms of un- doubted authenticity. http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/va/gloucester/cemeteries/tombs003.txt

Research Notes: Thomas (Thomas 2, Richard 1) of Bonnie Flythe

This son of Thomas Johnson lived his entire life in Louisa County, Virginia. He must have been born before 1728 and he died in Louisa Co in 1798 leaving a will.

He was generally known as Thomas Johnson Major and he certainly was a colorful character!  His birth date can only be estimated, but there is evidence of the identity of his first wife, Elizabeth Ashton.  They were married some time before 1749.

Elizabeth Ashton was a daughter of Col. Henry Ashton, resident of Westmoreland County.  Col. Ashton died there before 1731 when his will was probated.  He was quite wealthy and Elizabeth seems to have been his only direct heir: Thomas sold this land some time after his marriage to Elizabeth and a subsequent deed shows the county of residence for the couple:
