Johnson Family, PA, Washington Co., Ohio; Adams Co., Ohio

Classification: Query
Surnames: Johnson
I am researching the Johnson family, patriarch’s first name unknown, but evidence suggests that he was born in Ireland. He was married to Jane (maiden name unknown), also born in Ireland about 1778. They were settled in Pennsylvania for some time, county and twp. unknown, but I know one of their children for sure, it was my G-G-Grandfather Henry Johnson, born in Pennsylvania 12 Feb 1812. Henry lived in Grandview Twp., Washington Co., Ohio and was married there to Cordelia Pinney on
3 Sept. 1837. Between 1840 and 1850 Henry moved his family to Adams County, Ohio. Census research suggests that he lived near at least two of his brothers, William (m. to Lucinda) and John (m. to Mary A.) in the 1840 census for Grandview Twp., Washington Co., Ohio. I do not have proof that these men were his brothers, just evidence from their places of birth (Pennsylvania), and their parents’ places of birth (Ireland). William later also moved his family to Adams Co., Ohio and lived near Henry. I think it is possible that John died, as I did not find further census records on him and his family after 1850 when he was still in Washington Co. I am hoping that someone out there is researching this same branch of the Johnson family and can help me. Here is their Outline Descendant Tree as I have been able to identify it:
