Is this your family?

Jordan JOHNSON Self M Male W 33 MS Laborer MS MS
Martha JOHNSON Wife M Female W 38 MS Keeping House VA MS
Martha JOHNSON Dau S Female W 12 MS MS VA
Joe JOHNSON Son S Male W 8 MS MS VA
Lizzie JOHNSON Dau S Female W 7 MS MS VA
Jennie JOHNSON Dau S Female W 5 MS MS VA
George JOHNSON Son S Male W 1 MS MS VA

My interest is in Martha Johnson whom I believe is Martha Mize, daughter of James Marion Mize and Lydia Anglin. In the 1880 Yazoo Census, James Marion Mize is living next door to Jordan Johnson. Martha's dob matches what I have as dob of Martha Mize.

Is this your family? I have extensive information on the Mize family generations back and looking to add descendants to my information.

Thanks,

I am at a brickwall, I am looking for the descendants of my Grandfather Tom B. Johnson. This is the only information I have. My Great Grandfather was Tom B. Johnson and he was born 1859 in Alcorn County, MS. He was married to a Cora Johnson. In the 1880's census they were living in Newton County, MS and all of their children were born in Newton County, MS. His children were Randolph Johnson born 1880, Sarah Johnson born 1883, Della Johnson born 1886, Eva Johnson born 1889, Tom B. Johnson born 1893, Willie G. Garner born 1890 and Flossy Garner born 1899. I am looking for the descendants. My Great Grandfather Tom B. Johnson may had some relatives in Alcorn County and Claiborne County, MS. I strongly believe he may still have some relatives in Newton County, Lawrence County and Scott County, MS.
