Am looking for Matilda, born early 1800's in AL. Maiden name? Daughter Salina Johnson/Johnston Smith, mar. John Owen Smith (Paddlefoot) she was born 1838 in Rankin Co. MS died 1913 in Ada, OK. What was her maiden name and her first husbands name? Assuming Bailey to be her second marriage.

My gg grandmother was Selena Johnson who married John O. Smith and resided in Pontotoc County, OK. Their daughter, Lena L. Smith married Benjamin Bryant Justus, who are my great grandparents. I have recently located on an 1850 Mississippi census record a Susan Johnson with children: Matilda 16, Jackson 18, Salena 13 and Emiline 10. I now believe after finding this census record that Matilda is Salena's sister not her mother. I have been searching blindly for this family being there is no family bible or legal documentation available to me. Please contact me. Kathy Justus Larbi

Kathy, thank you so much. Now it makes sense.

I am the daughter of Joyce Ann Bell, daughter of Ruby Justus-Miller, daughter of Lena Smith, daughter of Salena Johnson, aparently sister of Matilda and daughter of Susan.

Do you have any records on where Matildas grave is?

Sorry, I don't have where Matilda is buried....I've only been working on the Johnson family about a year.....it's slow going on them....not much of a paper trail....we need to find a member of the Bailey family.....the last place in the census for Matilda is 1880 Limestone County TX. Dist. 93...in 1900 I found John W. Bailey listed as widow living with their son, Jesse P. Bailey in Houston County, Grapeland, TX. About the only real documentation for the Indian blood is a page from Claude Franklin Smith's (son of George A. Smith)Bible under grandmother is written part Indian, wore blankets. Do you need a copy? Kathy

Yes, copies will be wonderful. There are several of us working on this Indian line. Maybe one of us will break through and find something. I will have more time when I retire next spring. But Jerry Bell (cousin) is working on it now.

Okay, I can scan it....do you want me to e-mail it directly to you? I did hear from Jerry Bell yesterday and replied...sure hope we get a break on this family. One of my uncles on the Justus side wife's last name is Bailey....there is suppose to be a connection there with Matilda's Bailey.....they say that John W. Bailey and Matilda Bailey are listed in the Muskogee Indian records.....haven't gotten anyone yet to go to Muskogee and check it out. Kathy

At this time no Indian bloodline has been found that I am aware of. How are you connected to this family? I'm from Justus side...g grandmother Lena L. Smith Justus, gg grandmother Selena Johnson Smith, ggg grandmother Susan Miers Johnson. Matilda Johnson Bailey is sister to Selena Johnson Smith.
