1850 Census of Putnam Co, WV

1850 Census of Putnam Co, WV

Posted: 7 Apr 2006 3:01AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Johnson, Barnett
Is there any way to know where my ancestors Jesse Franklin Johnson (1823 NC) and Susan J Barnett Johnson (1826 VA) lived from information on the census record of 1850 where they are listed in the 46th district, Putnam Co, VA? In 1860 they are listed in Kanawha Co with a post office of "Coals Mouth". I am interested in finding out where they are from and therefore who they were related to. I have no birth families for either of them.

Thank you for looking up my ancestors! I appreciate your taking the time to see what was there. You are right. Both Charles and Fred Johnson were druggists but neither had any education past high school which was plenty in those days. When regulations came in about being a pharmacist, Fred got his certification but Charles didn't and so Fred kept the Drug store. Their father, Jesse, was a sadler.

This is what I know of Jesse and Susan Johnson. I sent for their death certificates and Jesse's didn't give any parent information and Susan doesn't seem to have a death certificate in the location I expected to find it. We have photos and stories of most of the listed people including Jesse and Susan but nothing further back. I had the marriage information for Jesse and Susan but have never seen the other Barnett marriage names and dates. How exciting. Susan's brother John was living with them in the 1880 Census for Indianapolis, IN. I was looking at other Johnsons and Barnetts in the WV area I found them in early census records. It's hard to establish relationships that way but it appears to be the only way to proceed.

I've looked at that John H Barnett and decided it wasn't Susan's brother because he was born in 1830 not 1820 as reported in the 1880 census with Jesse and Susan. Sometimes that doesn't mean anything so. I followed John H Barnet (1830) through the census and I think hes not mine. However, I did find a John H Barnett (1820) that made sense in the 1870 & 1860 census of Boscobel, Grant, Wisconsin and the 1850 Eastern District, Grant, Wisconsin census. He doesn't appear in Wisconsin in 1880 making him available to be in Marion with his sister. His wife Mary and Nellie and Maude appear in the Boscobel, Grant Wisconsin census.
1 John H. Barnett b: Abt. 1820 in West Virginia
.. +Mary L. b: 1828 in KY
.......2 Charles b: 1848 in Wisconsin
.......2 Lucinthia b: 3/12 (Apr) 1850 in Wisconsin
...... 2 Ballard Barnett b: 1857 in Wisconsin
...... 2 John Barnett b: 1860 in Wisconsin
...... 2 Nellie Barnett b: 1864 in Wisconsin
...... 2 Maude Barnett b: May 1870 in Wisconsin

I have looked at many Barnett families in WV. They all seem to start having kids at 13 and continue on til 50. With families of 20 children all with repeating names, it gets very confusing!

I never noticed about Sidney Johnson before though. That was a stroke of genius. I'm sure he is Jesse's brother. Maybe if I send for his death certificate I can get Jesse's parents. Thank you!

Just a thought, but maybe this means "mouth of Coal River". I think the coal river runs through St. Albans. Anyone correct me if I am wrong.
