Silas and Tempy (Kelly) Johnson are on the 1840, 1850, 1860 Conecuh censuses.(In Covington County, AL on the 1830.)Likewise James S. & Emily Johnson are on the 1840, 1850, 1870 Conecuh census.(In Escambia County, FL on the 1860; Emily is on the 1870 Conecuh Mortality Schedule.)Richardson is on the 1840 Conecuh census, near James S.(In Baldwin County, AL on the 1860, 1870, 1880.)
It would seem that James S. & Emily are closely related to Silas & Tempy.(James has children named Silas & Tempy.The elder Silas sold his land to Emily -- not to James?! -- in 1863.)For a while I thought James was Silas' son, but James (born about 1817) is not on the 1830 census with Silas (that shows only one son, evidently the younger son named Leroy).Maybe Emily was Silas' daughter?
Richardson is closely connected too.There is an Effa Johnson close (practically next door) to Silas on the 1850 census.Her children have the same/similar names as Richardson's children, even one of Effa's children is named Richardson!
My connection:Richardson's son William Monroe Johnson married James S.'s daughter Tempy in 1870 in Conech.They were my g-grandparents.
