Classification: Query
Surnames: Johnson, Stephens, Marvin
The William I am talking about is William H. Johnson b. 1848 - d. 1923, buried: Stafford Cem. -
wife: Mary A. b. 1854 - d. 1932 these are all on FAG
and here's census
1920 Stafford co. KS - ED 228, SH 8A, pg 122
William H. 79 b. KY
Mary A. 65 b. IN
1930 Stafford co. KS Census - don't have ED
Mary A. 75 b. IN; Widowed - Head of household.

I believe there are other connections intertwined in this family, such as the Marvins, Henry md Julia and Lucretta md William Marvin.

OH, I told you wrong on the Rebecca Shephard I believe I wrote on that 1850 census, it should be Rebecca Stephens. Which makes more sense for this family, I found Lucretta Johnson Marvin (I believe a sister) still in Clark co. IL, who died in 1931, Decatur, Macon co. IL (living with dtr), death certificate states mother, Mary Stephens, father, William Johnson.
Boone co. Ky Marriage Records list: Polly Stephens md William Johnson 14/Jan/1819 by Absalom Graves, bondsman: John Stephens - MR BK A, pg 45.

I believe she passes before 1850 census, but her mother or grandmother, must be living with the family.

Also, yes cousins did marry cousins until 1900, when they passed a law about that. That's how my husband's family came to be.
Trouble I am having is that I can't find any info online for Kansas. Maybe if you can get some of the obits, might be able to find out if these guys are connected.
I have found that Henry's brother Richard lives with him in 1910 after his wife dies. And He lived with Henry & Julia in Macon co. IL in 1870.

Now we could be chasing the wrong family, so don't put it down as fact yet, but if it doesn't work for your James Thomas, it probably will work for Henry S. Johnson and Aurelia Crouch dtr Nona Mae.
