Our ancestor, Gale Johnson, Sr. -sometimes listed as Gail- resided in Pickens Co., AL in 1850. According to the census, he was b. 1807 SC and had wife Rebecca b. 1810 SC, children: Samuel b. 1830 GA Elizabeth b. 1833 GA John b. 1840 AL Abaner b. 1842 AL Matilda R. b. 1849 AL
On the 1860 census additional children were: Maryb. 1848 AL - where did she come from? was this Matilda? Gail Johnson Jr. . 1850 AL - This one is our line.
Gail Jr. m. 1st Helen Hale then Nancy S. Hale in Sumter Co., AL in 1883. Gale Jr. had children John, Rebecca, Josephine and Milten with first wife, and with second wife he had Floyd, Earl, Nana, Lena and Mary Elizabeth b. 1883 who is our line.
Does anyone connect to this line of Johnsons or have any info on them? Family lore just does not fit with the facts of the census.
