James William Johnson Sr. b. about 1849 Missouri married Elizabeth Cordell (last name spelling varies) b. 1846 Missouri . I am looking for info on James parents , I have found more than a few trees linking him to Isaac Denton Johnson b. about 1827 Tenn & Sarah Yandel ( Yannel & various spellings) b. about 1829 Tenn. This is not correct ,my husband & I have both done DNA ancestry test, he IS related to Isaac thru a Cantrell line .
James & Elizabeth are parents of Nancy Elizabeth (Johnson) Barnett , my great grandmother b.08/05/1873 Arkansas , I have done some looking & was told Isaac & Sarah had a James who died at 10yrs old (the info givin me by a person who has written 2 fairly recent books on Cantrell).
Any one have info for James William Johnson Sr. parents? ( I have him as Sr. because his sons death cert shows James William Johnson Jr. ) I haven't been at this long and still have lots of gaps but will be happy to share what little I think I know. Thank you ,Coleen
