Austin Johnson, son of Richard Johnson and Lucy Hunter was b abt. 1799 in Louisa Co, Virginia.  Austin Johnson lived in Sumner County, and at times was associated with Rocky Creek in present Trousdale County, Tennessee, Cairo on the Cumberland River, and Castalian Springs. He died 23 December 1847 by drowning in the Cumberland River while "crossing the back water on the Gallatin turnpike at the east end of the Nashville bridge," in Davidson County, Tennessee. His companion, Thomas D. Martin, also drowned at the same time, and was buried in the Martin Cemetery on Martin Lane, northeast of Gallatin. Austin Johnson's place of burial has not been located. He married (1) Ann Elizabeth Corley 4 Sep 1820 in Wilson Co, Tennessee, daughter of Austin Corley and his first wife of Hanover County, Virginia and Wilson County, Tennessee. She was born in Hanover Co, Virginia, and died bet. 1824 - 1829 in Sumner Co, Tennessee.  Children of Austin Johnson and Ann Elizabeth Corley:

Turner:

    • John Austin Turner b 29 Jan 1839 in Sumner Co, Tennessee, d 9 Sep 1853 in Sumner Co, burial Simpson Cemetery.  John Austin Turner inherited a large amount of property from his father, James, who had inherited from his own father, John Turner.  See Will of John Turner.  Lawsuit #13467 dated 1848 and 1849 between John's stepfather, Enoch Simpson and his uncle, Nelson Bailey Turner shows the tenacity that his uncle displayed in obtaining guardianship and control over John's inheritance.  After John's death, there was another court battle over his money (Lawsuit #8022, dated 1853,  Enoch Simpson, et al vs. Nelson B. Turner, et al.)  In this loose record, John's paternal aunts and uncles, Nelson B. Turner, Thomas Buntin & wife Elizabeth, William Carter & wife Eliza, & John M. Henly & wife Mary claim to be the heirs of John A. Turner and entitled to the whole of this fund or a portion.  They felt the money originally came from James H. Turner and therefore it rightfully belonged to James' brothers and sisters.  The Chancery Court disagreed and the money was inherited by John's mother, Martha, and his half siblings listed below.  (Estate of John A. Turner_1855) 

    Martha Jane Johnson married 2nd in Sumner County on 21 March 1841 to Enoch Simpson, son of Aaron Simpson and Charlotte Wisheart.  (correct spelling should be Wisheart. Many people, including DAR insist on WISEHEART, which is wrong based on the records left by her father, Henry Wisheart, who died in Fairfax County, Virginia in 1776 - edm). He was b 1 November 1797 in Caswell Co., North Carolina, and d 1 August 1860 in Sumner Co, Tennessee. Enoch was married previously to Elizabeth Carter. (They married in Caswell County, North Carolina on 29 December 1818. She was born in Caswell County, North Carolina 16 April 1797, and died in Sumner County, Tennessee in 1839. Their children, and Martha's step-children were Aaron Sanford Simpson who married Mary Frances Johnson, Martha's sister; Mary Ann Simpson, who married Richard E. Johnson, Martha's brother; William C. Simpson who married Permelia C. Durham; Nancy E. Simpson who married William W. West; Katherine Odie Simpson who married James Wilburn West; and Elizabeth Amanda Simpson who married Alfred M.
