This is a 2013 update to my original posting. See my original posting for all the details in that posting.
I am still looking for the ANCESTRY of James JOHNSON. He was born in KY, was in Clark Co, MO, by 1840. Lived there until about 1880, then migrated to California and died in Santa Cruz. I have all the info starting in 1840 and going forward.
I am looking for his BIRTH family in Kentucky.
Two new tips, to make the research interesting:
1) in the 1850 census, James is listed with his family in Sweet Home. Also, with his family is an ALEXANDER JOHNSON, a couple years younger and also born in KY.
2) in the 1860, ALEXANDER JOHNSON has migrated to Lewis Co, MO where he is listed with the Dowell family. Mrs. Charles Dowell was REBECCA JOHNSON, b.abt 1827 in KY.
So we have three individuals, all with the surname of Johnson, intermingling with each other in Missouri. All three born in KY between 1815-1830.
ARE THEY RELATED?
