Looking for info on the death of Robert P. Johnson of Taylor County, Virginia (which became West Virginia in 1863).
The only solid info I have found on Robert is the 1850 census which indicates he was born c. 1822 in Va (possibly WV) and in 1844 he married Nancy Jane Marple (widow of John Jacobs) in Monongalia Co., Virginia/WV. They had 3 children - Rebecca, Mary E, and William Henry (in his life, Wm is seen spelled as both Johnson Johnston).
Robert evidently passed sometime between 23 Sept 1850 (census date) and 26 Dec 1854. On this date in 1854, Nancy married Jesse Sharps of Taylor Co, Va/WV so it is assumed she is a widow.
