Am trying to find information on my great-greatgrandfather. His name was William Johnson. He was born 17 June 1827, Leicestershire, England. He married 13 Dec 1857, Marquette County, Wisconsin, USA, Mary Elizabeth Clark; he died 7 June 1879, Springfield, Marquette Cty., Wisconsin and is buried in Springfield.
Think that he might have been born in Saxeby, Leicestershire. Have found a George Johnson that lived not too far from him in Marquette Cty., Wisconsin and this George was born in Saxeby, Leicestershire.
Any help would be appreciated.
