Fact 1   Excerpts from The Jesse Greer Notebook

"A Smawl Travail of Jesse Grear"
"He was born the son of Benjamin and Nancy Grear in Wilkes County North Carolina on the 14th November 1778. Then traveled on to the years of maturity under a tender father and mother, and at 16 years old I left my Parents much against their will. Then serving the Devil was all my delight. Till the year 1800. Then married Polly Morris which was born a daughter of Henry and Franky Morris on the 17th September 1787. Then went on in the Gall of Bitterness as tho there was no Lord to save or to be lost. Til the year 1810 at the Baptism of Brother Benjamin. I Began to think that my soul must dwell with the rich man. Then I betook my self to trying to pray for about ten month. But the Devil purswaded me it was so hard that I could pray no longer. But betook myself to Cursing and swearing and drinking and all kinds of sin. Til the year 1814...we went to meeting to the Old feil meeting house but there was no ministry came to preach. But as they thought proper that they should sing and pray one of them began and as I set I saw a small child about twelve or thirteen year old crying as if she would break her heart. And it seamed to strike me like a clap of thunder to think that God was at work with such small children and I still in the gall of bitterness. Then I went home trying to pray, but it oppresed me that God would not hear my weak pertishion. I soon began to think that I had past the day of grace. I soon betook my self to my friends and to the people of God to see if they could give any consolation. But I had to go mourning through the wilderness until 1815. I had been from home and on my return home some hours in the night I thought if I was lost I would die a praying. And as I was trying to pray I thought that my Blessed Jesus meet with me and Bid me not fear. Then I went home Rejoicing and praising God that I had been lost but now was found...we was Received in to the Baptist Church and was Baptised on the 4th Sunday in June 1815."

Alexander Johnson
b. circa 1765, d. 21 March 1844

Last Edited 25 Jun 2003

Birth circa 1765  Alexander Johnson was born circa 1765. 
Marriage 15 September 1790  He married Frances Frankie Gambill, daughter of John Gambill and Caty ?Wash, on 15 September 1790 at Wilkes County, NC.1 
Death 21 March 1844  Alexander Johnson died on 21 March 1844 at Ashe County, NC.2 
Note   How do I know that these 10 are the children of Alexander and Franky? In 1957, Mr. Verl Weight, a researcher of the Cox families, published family Bible information in "The North Carolinian" for a family whose parents were not named. The 10 children in the Bible are these listed as Alexander's family. The first child is Elizabeth Johnson, born October 29, 1791. In Franky Johnson's widow's pension application, she stated that her first child, Elizabeth, was born on that date. Also, the ages of this list of children exactly fit those of Alexander Johnson's family in the 1800-1840 census. Finally, Franky Johnson is living in the 1850 census with a James Johnson whose age fits the James in the Bible, and that same James is later in the same household with a Catherine Johnson whose age fits the Catherine in the Bible.3 
Census 1787  Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1787 at Wilkes County, NC, as follows: Capt Nall's District. I male over 21.4 
Census 1790  Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1790 at Wilkes County, NC, as follows: 1 male over 16 and 1 female.5 
Fact 1 20 October 1794  On 20 October 1794, at Wilkes County, NC,, "Alexandria Johnston" bought 15 acres from John Nall, for twenty pounds, on the South Fork of New River. The deed was not recorded until 1800, by which time Ashe County had been formed, and the deed was recorded there. It was witnessed by Robert Nall, Elisha Baldwin and Wm Nall..6 
Fact 1 8 June 1798  On 8 June 1798, at Wilkes County, NC,, "Alexandria Johnston" bought 82 acres from Robert Nall, for ten dollars, on the South Fork of New River. The land adjoined Fletcher and "said Johnson's old corner." The deed was not recorded until 1800, by which time Ashe County had been formed, and the deed was recorded there. It was witnessed by Wm Lenoir and Jno McMillan..7 
Census 1800  Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1800 at Ashe County, NC, as follows: 20010-20010.8 
Fact 1 4 November 1802  On 4 November 1802, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson bought from William Lenoir for $240, 320 acres on both sides of Cranberry Creek adjoining Fletcher and York and running "near the Elk Ridge." The deed was witnessed by Wm Waugh, Wm Colvard and David Brown..9 
Fact 1 14 December 1803  On 14 December 1803, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson received grant #438 for 100 acres on the waters of Silas Branch adjoining Fletcher and Holeman. The land was entered on April 8, 1800..10

Census 1810  Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1810 at Ashe County, NC, as follows: A. Johnson 21110-21110.12 
Fact 1 23 September 1813  On 23 September 1813, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson bought from James Baker for $100, 250 acres, beginning on a ridge that divides Silas Branch from the River. Other landmarks manetioned are Esq Fletcher's line and the east side of Silas Branch. The deed was witnessed by Sam Cox and Zachariah Baker..13 
Fact 1 6 March 1814  On 6 March 1814, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson bought from Samuel Cox, Sheriff 99 acres for 22 shillings 6 pence. The land was part of a 100 acre tract belonging to James Fletcher that was sold for taxes. The land was on the head of Cranberry Creek..14 
Census 1820  Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1820 at Ashe County, NC, as follows: 120001-11201. William is married and has his own household. Elizabeth is married to Henry Eller and is in his household. I suspect that John died, because the other older son is gone here and is not in his own household.15 
Fact 1 15 November 1828  On 15 November 1828, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson sold to James Gentry 100 acres for $200 and 50 acres for $50. The 100 acre tract adjoined Silas Branch, Fletcher and Holeman. The 50 acre tract was on the north side of the New River at the mouth of Poison Branch. Both deeds were witnessed by James Smith and William Johnson.

Census 1830  Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1830 at Ashe County, NC, as follows: 001100001-00021001 There is a HH for Edward Johnson 5 houses away from William who is probably Richard Edward. Mary is married to Jeremiah Baker and is in his HH. So these children are James, Jesse, Sarah, Catherine and Sookey.17 
Fact 1 28 February 1831  On 28 February 1831, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson sold to Richard Gentry for $300, 100 acres adjoining Johnson and McMillan. It doesn't say "said Johnson," so I'm not sure if it means Alexander's own land or some other Johnson. Also no river or creek is mentioned..18 
Census 1840  Alexander Johnson appeared on the census of 1840 at Ashe County, NC, as follows: 0100100001-010010001. I believe the 2 young children to be the 2 living with James and Franky in 1850. The 20-29-year old man is probably James (who would turn 30 in 1840) and the 20-29 year old woman is Sookey. Catherine is probably the 30-39 year old woman in the household with Henry and Elizabeth Eller (her sister). Sarah is married by now to William Weaver and is in his household. Jesse is in his own household.19 
Fact 1 19 November 1840  On 19 November 1840, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson sold to Catherine Johnson for $200 two tracts of land on the waters of the South Fork of New River. The first tract contained 80 acres, beginning on the bank of the river running "various courses" 270 poles along the bank, then north 25 4 East to first station. The second tract contained 70 acres, beginning at the corner of the first tract on the east bank of the river, bordering the Rocky Branch and James Dickson's corner. The deed was witnessed by William Johnson and James Johnson. By a second deed on the same date, Alexander Johnson also sold to Catherine Johnson for $100, 50 acres described as "beginning on a white oak on the Rocky Branch on his old line running east 126 poles to a stake then south 65 poles to a stake then west 126 poles to a stake in the old line then to first station." This deed was witnessed by the same two witnesses..16 
Fact 1 4 December 1840  On 4 December 1840, at Ashe County, NC,, Alexander Johnson received Grant # 2686 for Entry # 9013 entered 8/9/1838. The grant was for 50 acres on the waters of the South Fork of New River between Gentry and Nye, adjoining McMillan. The survey was witnessed by Jesse Johnson and James Johnson..20 
Fact 1 between 1854 and 1855  Between 1854 and 1855, at Ashe County, NC,, From the Wilkes Genealogical Society Bulletin, Fall 1976:

From Wilkes Genealogical Society Bulletin, Winter 1976:

Affadavit of Mrs. Nancy Gambill, widow of Capt Martin Gambill aged 95 yrs knew Alexander Johnson and knew him to be soldier under her late father Capt W. Nall and her late husband Capt Martin Gambill. "
[It is possible that the "1859" is a transcription error, since Sept 9, 1855 is the date of the other document. Also Nancy Gambill was 90 in the 1850 census of Ashe Co, NC, which would make it 1855 if she was 95.]
