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.

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.

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

 

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.

JOHNSON AND ALLIED FAMILES OF NOTTOWAY RIVER

 

1650 Abraham WOOD joined Edward BLAND, Sackford BREWSTER and Elias PENNANT on a journey of discovery along the Chowan and Nottoway rivers into NC. In 1653 the Assembly granted him and his associates special privileges for fourteen years in trading activities "in places where no English ever have bin and discovered, nor have had particular trade http://www.genpage.com/history_surname.html

Notes Abraham Woods
FORT HENRY, located at present-day Petersburg, was granted to Captain Abraham WOOD with 600A of land plus all houses, edifices, boats, and ammunition belonging to the fort. WOOD was required to maintain and keep ten persons continuously at the fort for three years. The forts served as the first line of defense against possible attacks by the natives. Being the center of the varied activities of the frontier, they also were the starting point for expeditions against the Indians and became the center of trade for the outlying regions Mother Earth Land Grants In Virginia, 1607-1699 by W.

Abraham Wood was the pivot about which all the military and industrial activity at Fort Henry revolved. Before becoming the commander of Fort Henry, he had served as burgess from Henrico County. Though he did not stand for election as a burgess from Charles City until 1654, it is scarcely probable that he kept his fingers out of politics. For a time, however, he concentrated upon the exploration of unknown lands. http://www.rootsweb.com/~vadinwid/apamatica/ch1.htm

Marmaduke Brown

1755 Nov, Court Chancery
Marmaduke Brown vs. Francis Johnson, William Russell and Elizabeth his wife, Epaphroditus GILLIAM and Priscilla his wife,
Thomas Murrell, Jeffry Murrell and Thomas Russell; in Chancery.
Referred to General Court.

The predominant GILLIAM line of Charles City is that of Jeffrey GILLIAM, son of William GILLIAM, one of the early constables at Weyanoke. William owned jointly with Jeffrey Munford, land along Oldman's Creek and Seller Run. Jeffrey Munford appears to be the namesake of William's son, Jeffrey.

Jeffrey GILLIAM, Jr., a grandson of William GILLIAM, leaves a Will in 1768 mentioning his children. His son, Jeffrey GILLIAM, III, continues in Charles City and may be found in the 1810 Census.

It appears that Jeffrey GILLIAM 's brother, Richard GILLIAM, did not settle in Charles City, but in Saint Peter's Parish, New Kent, just across the James. However, at least one of Richard GILLIAM 's sons did live in Charles City. Epaphroditus GILLIAM, (1707-1761) son of Richard GILLIAM of New Kent leaves a Will dated 1761.

It, like that of Jeffrey GILLIAM 's, is witnessed by William Green Munford. He and his wife are involved in a chancery suit with the Johnsons, Murrells, and Russells.

There must have been a family connection to the Russells, since Jeffrey GILLIAM is selected as guardian of the infant, Thomas Russell in the 1790's.

In 1764, a John GILLIAM marries in
Dover Parish, Goochland, Elizabeth Murrell, daughter of Thomas Murrell above. This John GILLIAM settles in Albemarle County and names a son Epaphroditus GILLIAM. It is believe that this John GILLIAM is a son of Epaphroditus GILLIAM (1707-1761) and his wife Priscilla. http://home.triad.rr.com/gilliamsofva/Charles%20City/CharlesCity.html

1775 May 23 John Robertson and Sarah deeded Henry Jennings 100 acres in Nottoway Parish, Amelia (now Nottoway) County, for £80. The deed described the land as on the south waters of Little Nottoway River, next to Snail Creek and John Fowlkes Jr., Marston Green, and Waller. Although according to this deed, John had acquired the land earlier from a Johnson, we can find no such deed.

John Robertson was married to Sarah Jennings

 

1769: John Robertson’s name appeared in a variety of court records. He witnessed the will of Thomas Yarbrough in 1768,  and was security for the estate of William Johnson in 1769  Amelia Co Will Book 2X 1761- 1771 pg 273 http://www.virginians.com/redirect.htm?topics&100

 

 

On 23 Oct. 1775 John Jennings sold 202 acres near Mallorys Creek in Amelia County to John Robertson for £100.  When John bought this land from Dickerson Jennings 19 May 1773 for £100, it was next to the property of Henry Anderson, William Craddock, and Richard Ligon and was about two miles south of present-day Crewe, Va

 

 

In 1782 and 1785 Amelia County listed John Robertson head of a household of 8 whites and 5 blacks. 

 

In 1791 John and Sarah Robertson sold tracts of land between Mallorys Creek and Cold Water Branch to James Jennings and to Henry Jennings This was probably part of the 202 acres. In 1792 John bought 100 acres from his half-brother George Cabiness Robertson that had belonged to their father. 

 

 

In 1801 John was a surveyor of the road from Nottoway Meeting House to Rowland’s Church. Tax records of 1811 show John Robertson and 3 of his sons owned “chairs,” or buggy. By 1820 John Robertson was farming with 17 slaves

 

John Robertson was the foreman of the jury that returned a verdict of not guilty in the celebrated trial of Dr. George Langston Griffin Bacon for the murder of Dr. John Segar Hardaway in 1818. 

 

Will of John Robertson 11 July 1826

 

Item. All debts to be paid

 

Item. To son James D. Robertson one bedstead and furniture and one cow and calf to him and his heirs forever

 

Item. After the payment of debts and the above specified legacy to son, James D. Robertson, the balance of my estate, both real and personal, to be equally divided amongst the following named children and grandchildren. One portion to Archer Robertson, one other portion to William Robertson, one other portion to James D. Robertson, one other portion to Henry I. Robertson, one other portion to the children to Jennings Robertson, one other portion to the children of John Robertson, one other portion to Nancy Jennings, and one other portion in the hands of Archer Robertson, as trustee for the benefit of Edward Robertson’s wife and children.
