We are looking for any information on Joseph B.T. Johnson who was living in Grimes County and married his second wife Mary Ann Wheeler. They married November 19, 1856, Grimes County, Texas. When they married Joseph had 3 children and this was the first marriage for Mary Wheeler. The next time we found them they were on the Texas, Falls County Census 1860.

Children by his first wife? Died or they divorce and he has their children
A. Johnson (female), age 12, b. MS 1848
Ann Johnson, age 11, b. MS 1849
James Johnson, age 10, b. MS 1850
Children by second wife Mary Wheeler, age 23, b. AL 1834-1837

Henry Johnson, age 3, b. TX 1857
Pheby Johnson, age 1, b. TX 1859
They are not on the Texas, Falls County Census 1870.
We think that J.B.T Johnson died about 1862-1863 or they divorce, because Mary Wheeler Johnson is now remarried again, April 21, 1864 to James May, back in Grimes County.
Mary Wheeler Johnson May is listed on the Texas, Grimes County 1880 Census with only two children and a Widowed.
