No name yet. The info I'm getting is verbal from my 80+ Dad. The story goes that the Albert A..Johnsons took the train to Waxahachie area (outside of Dallas) from TN. Apparently, a large number of immigrants from the same Co. in TN also settled in Ellis Co.

My g-grandfather was the Albert A. Johnson who married the _____(f) Holder.
Some of their children born in TN:

Frank Johnson b..~1890 - d.~1980, buried Waxahachie, Tx.
Annie (Johnson) Mayfield
Belle (Johnson) Smith Drewry

Civil War. E. Tn

Sorry, I'm new to Ancestry.com, what do the numbers before each name represent? Thanks.

This type of chart is showing an easy way to determine the relationships of the people listed within it. The numbers before each name are refering to each generation. 1John M. Holder is the first generation; he is the father of all the (eight) persons listed below him with a number two. The people listed with a three are the third generation; and therefore are John M. Holder's grandchildren. The 2John A. Holder and his wife Ann Elizabeth would be the parents of these grandchildren #3 listed directly below them in this type of chart. It would appear the Bill Holder identified this family for you. This family moved around! In what city and state is this family cemetery located?

The Holder Cemetery is in Freestone County, TExas on our ranch. I am hoping to have markers restored and the little cemetery fenced this year. Most of the deaths are around the 1860s.
