Surnames: Johnson
I am looking for any information on Elvin A. Johnson who was the son of Johan Adolph Johnson and Clara Justina Peterson. He was from the Williamson County area. There is not enough information in the Swedes in Texas book to help me. He was born approximately 1898. His siblings were Carl Otto Johnson, Monnie Johnson, Robert Andrew Johnson, Eric Johnson, John Emil Johnson, Ernest Johnson, Ida Johnson, Tina Johnson, Gustaf Albert Johnson, Henry Johnson and Ellen Johnson. If someone could give me information on his date of birth and date of death I would appreciate it. His wife's name was Esther Nelson and they had one son, Nelson Carl Johnson.

Thank you.

His/her contact info is at www.gengathering.com. You do have to create a user ID and password to enter this web site but access to the volunteer info is free.
