I just found some conflicting information on an individual in my tree, and I'm wondering now which is correct.
My initial tree had this:
Samuel Johnson (1792- 3 May 1858), married Sarah Patsy Hightower (1794-1866)
James Anderson Johnson (1813-4 Mar 1889), married to Rhoda Downing (17 Dec 1812 - 11 Mar 1899)
James D Johnson (12 Dec 1849-3 Jun 1922)
Roy Andrew Johnson (1886-1942)
Roy Andrew Johnson Jr (1916-1952)
But I've got 2 census records, 1860 and 1880, that give me a different story:
George W Johnson (1805-?), married Rhoda
James T Johnson (1848/9-1922 I guess)
Roy, et al.
Would anyone be able to help me know which one is correct? Do I scrap the James Anderson Johnson line and all that goes back there? The Samuel Johnson I linked to got me back to Scotland. Through a George Johnston who knew Patrick Henry, and a Doctor James who went from Scotland to Maryland (which sounds odd given that the entire rest of my family has never been north of Virginia elsewise), to a Sir George from Caskieben who married Lady Christian Forbes. If all that's not my family, I don't need it in my tree, but it seems the Johnsons stop at George W if I put him in there.
I've attached the images of the two relevant census forms.
