I am looking for information about a Harlen Johnson, b. abt 1821, TN and his wife Mary J. b. abt 1834, IN, and Eli Johnson, b. abt 1829, IN. I found Harlen Johnson in the 1850 census, Madison Co., MO, 54th District, # 561-561, Harlen Johnson, age 28, occupation: Collier, born in TN, Mary J. age 15, b. IN, and Eli Johnson age 21, Laborer, b. IN.
Eli Johnson was my g-great grandfather. He moved to Howell Co, MO, and bought land there, and also a Harlen Johnson was listed in the land records, too. This was in 1860.
Harlen Johnson and family not listed in the 1860 census for Howell Co., MO, but Eli and wife Nancy McDaniel Johnson are listed. I feel that Harlen and Eli are brothers, as Eli and Nancy Johnson named a son Harlen Johnson. I have been looking for clues to the parentage of Harlen and Eli Johnson. Any info or help would be greatly appreciated!
